blankIt’s Hollywood’s biggest night of the year as actors, directors, movie executives and film lovers get all glammed up to celebrate at the Academy Awards®. Celebrate locally and watch the live telecast of the 91st annual Academy Awards® at the Tampa Theatre.

Now in its 20th year at Tampa Theatre, the Hollywood Awards Night Red Carpet Reception begins at 6:30pm on Franklin Street under the historic marquee. After a limo ride around the block, courtesy of long-time event sponsor Skyline Limousine, superstar guests will walk the red carpet past adoring fans and paparazzi, rub shoulders with costumed characters representing Hollywood’s biggest bigwigs, pose for a picture with a living award “statue,” and chat with “Roan Jivers” about who they’re wearing.

Inside, there will be games, prizes, free popcorn and soda, hair and makeup touch-ups with professional stylists, the OSCAR® Red Carpet Live pre-show on the big screen, and a cash bar. ABC’s live coverage of the Academy Awards begins at 8:00 p.m.
