The countdown to film’s big night is on and to celebrate this year’s Academy Awards, the digital team are creating a bit of hype in a different way. The first-ever Oscar Roadtrip kicks off next Monday in New York City. The roadtrip will give Oscar fans the opportunity to hold an actual statuette before it arrives in Hollywood on the 24th of February.
The roadtrip will be covered by Oscar Roadtrip reporters, Ben Gleib and Angie Greenup. They’ll be posting a whole bunch of blog posts, videos, photos, tweets and so much more. You can follow the journey via:

OscarRoadtrip.com,

@OscarRoadtrip on Twitter

and on Facebook: Facebook.com/TheAcademy.

Speaking about the roadtrip, managing director of digital media and marketing for the Academy, Josh Spector said, “We created the Oscar Roadtrip to bring the magic and fun of the Oscar ceremony to movie fans across the country. The Oscar Roadtrip makes it possible to share the once-in-a-lifetime thrill that only comes from holding an Oscar statuette.”

I’m in SA, so I won’t be able to see or hold the Oscar just yet, but if you’re in the US take note of the following dates:

February 4 New York
February 6 Philadelphia
February 7 Washington, D.C.
February 8 Baltimore
February 11 Chicago
February 13 St. Louis
February 14 Kansas City
February 17 Houston
February 18 Dallas
February 21 Phoenix
February 24 Hollywood

Sounds like a lot of fun and hey Josh, next year I’m happy to participate. Being a multimedia journalist and all, I could rock it. #JustSaying 😉
