Fans arrive early to find the best spots on the bleachers with hopes of seeing their favorite stars walk the red carpet on Oscar Sunday.
Lucky fans find place on red carpet
For the lucky few who scored bleacher seats to the Oscars’ red carpet — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event.
It is a chance to be a part of the entertainment industry’s biggest night.
Life-long friends Jenelle Kischaddin and Mary Eisenhauer of Pennsylvania can’t wait for the show to begin.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) FANS JENELLE KISCHADDIN AND MARY EISENHAUER OF LATROBE, PENNSYLVANIA SAYING:
MARY – “It is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
JENELLE – “Very much so, very exciting, We’ve been watching it all week, just setting up. Just the anticipation of it is a thrill.”
MARY – “I think it will really hit when we see the first famous person that we see that we’ve seen and watched in different movies throughout the years. It is sinking in now and it is surreal. But I think when we see the first famous person it will be a whole new level of excitement as well.”
While the Oscars will be watched by millions around the world — it also comes with the #OscarsSoWhite — a backlash in Hollywood over this year’s 20 all-white acting nominees.
