Hey kids, ready for the Oscars yet? Though the Academy Awards are a good six months away (Feb. 26, 2012), Hollywood is already gearing up for the big event. Studios are jostling around, preparing their best films for late-year Oscar-qualification runs, and PR departments are getting ready to run overtime to promote stars, directors and films for next year's campaign. Where does that leave you, the fan? Well, if you're lucky, in the bleachers on Hollywood Boulevard.
