Time to get your ducks in a row, star stalkers. AMPAS is hosting a lottery to hand out 300 seats along the red carpet at this year's Oscar ceremony, and there are only four days left to fill out an application. You can apply in groups of four, and "winners" will be selected at random from an expected pool of over 20,000 applicants. What do you get for your form-filling-out trouble? A spot on a bleacher (on which you may have to park up to ten hours in advance of the ceremony's 5pm start time), and the honor of submitting your social security number for extensive background security checks. A small price to pay, I suppose, for a glimpse at the world's most conspicuous consumers prancing along in their natural habitat.
