The Academy’s sending Oscar statuettes out on a roadtrip in advance of the February 24, 2013 Academy Awards. The nationwide tour will begin in New York City on February 4th, making its way through at least nine other cities before ending up in Hollywood, CA for the big event.
The Oscar Roadtrip is the first of its kind, with movie fans actually getting the chance to hold an Oscar. No, you can not take it home. Yes, you can act like you’re delivering an acceptance speech.
Per the Academy’s announcement, social media will play a huge role in determining possible additional stops on the 21 day journey. Keep up with the roadtrip and suggest stops at @OscarRoadtrip, OscarRoadtrip.com and Facebook.com/TheAcademy.
“We created the Oscar Roadtrip to bring the magic and fun of the Oscar ceremony to movie fans across the country,” stated Josh Spector, managing director of digital media and marketing for the Academy. “The Oscar Roadtrip makes it possible to share the once-in-a-lifetime thrill that only comes from holding an Oscar statuette.”
