85th Academy Awards - 25 February 2013
And we don't want to fight for seats at one of the cinemas that broadcast the ceremony on the biiiig screen, so we thought we'd watch it at Metalab.
Did you know there are two Austrian nominees for some of the more coveted categories? (See below.)
Night from 24th to 25th of February. Academy Awards ceremony starts at 1.30am (source: ProSieben), red carpet coverage starts quite a bit earlier.
Via internet livestream. The Academy Awards are not broadcast online, so we'll have to look for a user-provided stream on livestream.com or similar. This also means there may be unexpected pauses (users go offline, switch channels etc.) during which we'll have to search for alternative streams. Alas!
We'll use the white iMac from the library & beamer and watch the whole thing in the main room from the couches. Don't say you haven't been warned!
We'll make popcorn for ourselves and might also bring crisps and other snacks. Anyone up for cooking? (We aren't.) Looks like we'll also have sparkling wine and maybe we'll mix up some drinks as well? (Tschunk? Gin Tonic? Campari orange?)
If you're planning to join us and want some of our popcorn & stuff (against a donation), please let us know so we can buy more.
