Woah, woah, woah, wait a minute. You mean to tell me that I could be walking down the red carpet along with the hottest most established actors, directors and producers on Hollywood’s biggest most prestigious awards ceremony night? That’s right, college kids who’ve spent hours in front of their bathroom mirror practicing their acceptance speech in their mom’s house finally have a chance to actually hold that gold little man. (much better than that jar of pickles you’ve been practicing with.) While you may not get to let the band play you off stage, you will be on stage with some of the greatest talents of our time. This year’s host, Seth McFarlane recently announced that this year’s 85th awards ceremony is holding a competition for students who are aspiring to someday work in the film industry to get a chance to not only attend the ceremony but to be able to present the coveted Oscar statue to winning stars. This opportunity, Seth says, “is part of the effort to bring in a younger crowd, get them invested, get them engaged in the culturally important event that is the Academy Awards.” Here’s how to enter:
“The Oscar Experience College Search” will be on the Academy’s Facebook and will go through January 19, 2013. College students need to demonstrate they’re destined for the Oscars by completing the Academy’s entry form and uploading a video answering the question: How will you contribute to the future of movies?
