Logistics, logistics, logistics! The Oscars every year make traveling around Hollywood a bit difficult with all the street/sidewalk closures, parking restrictions and public transit adjustments.

Today, Caltrans announced how the annual brouhaha is affecting their jurisdiction. On Sunday, both the north- and southbound 101 Freeway Highland Avenue off-ramps will be closed from 10 a.m. to midnight.

In our experience, traffic tends to be light in the area because everyone avoids the area like sin (except those Westboro protestors), so exiting the freeway at Cahuenga or Vine shouldn't be too much of a problem. If you plan to stay home and watch, try making the official Oscar cocktail.
