The party: Along with our buddies and co-hosts at the Modern and the Lone Star Film Society, DFW.com will roll out the red carpet at the Modern on March 7. You’ll be able to eat, drink and enter to win fabulous prizes, including a 40-inch Sharp Aquos flat-screen TV, provided by the fine folks at Marvin Electronics.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and DFW.com will be snapping photos of the arrivals and interviewing the famous and nonfamous alike. The Oscar telecast preshow kicks off at 7 p.m., and the ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m. We’ll be giving away prizes all night and during each commercial break. Attendance is absolutely free, and no tickets are necessary, although if you want to reserve a spot in the auditorium, you can e-mail Tina Gorski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
