A Red-Carpet Night with Oscar
Thursday, February 23, 2017 - 6:45 p.m.
Long before Academy Awards night rolls abound on February 26, you’ve probably assembled your own slate of favorites in the Oscar race. And there’s nothing more enjoyable than comparing your picks, talking about the nominated films and performers—and of course, those you felt really should have gotten a nod—with other movie fans.
Washington City Paper film critic Noah Gittell is back for an evening that focuses on all things Oscar, from Academy Awards history and trivia to discussions of this year’s nominations and behind-the-scenes stories. Sip something festive and cast your vote for the winners in several major categories, with the most accurate predictions eligible for prizes after the awards are presented. Courtesy of Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C., George Clooney and Denzel Washington will be on the red carpet, waiting for to pose for a photo with you!
Gittell has covered film and politics for publications and sites including the Atlantic, Guardian, Salon, and L.A. Review of Books. He is a regular on-camera contributor to BBC’s “Talking Movies with Tom Brook.”
