Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Emmys are still over a week away, but the time to start thinking about the Oscars is now. Beginning Monday at noon and continuing for about a week, anyone from around the world may enter into a random drawing for one of the 700 available seats at the 82nd Academy Awards red carpet (we sat there last year, here are our photos).

Those who apply may register up to four people, but only one form will be accepted per person or group. Selected winners will be notified in early October and then will be required to submit additional information for security purposes prior to final approval. Eligible attendees will receive a confirmation letter in early December with information pertinent to the event, which takes place on Sunday, March 7, 2010.

Entries are only accepted online at this website starting Monday with the process closing Sunday, September 20, at midnight ET/9 p.m. PT. About 20,000 entries are received each year, so good luck!
