Oscar Week - Oscars Setup Credentials

NOTE: Beginning Monday, February 24, specific exterior areas of the Hollywood & Highland Center®, including what will become the Oscars arrivals area, will be restricted. Access to these restricted areas will require one of two types of credentials: Oscars Setup credentials or, for those individuals who have been approved in advance to cover the Oscars presentation on March 2, an Oscar Sunday credential. Oscars Setup credentials are valid until 11 a.m. on March 2 (Oscar Sunday), prior to any guest arrivals; Oscar Sunday credentials remain valid through the presentation. Neither Oscars Setup credentials nor Oscar Sunday credentials provide access inside the Dolby Theatre or to the Governors Ball area; such access is by special arrangement and escort only. There will be NO press access to the arrivals area at Hollywood & Highland Center® prior to February 24.

To request Oscars Setup credentials, a representative of the outlet must submit online in advance the full name, date of birth and valid ID numbers (U.S. Drivers License, U.S. Government-issued ID card or passport) of those to receive an Oscars Setup credential. These names may be submitted at any time, but they must be submitted at least 24 hours before the individual comes to pick up the credential. The online application for Oscars Setup credentials will be available starting January 28. All requests must be submitted no later than Thursday, February 27 at 6 p.m. (PT).

Every individual to receive an Oscars Setup credential must pick up his/her own badge. The same valid ID submitted in advance must be presented to receive credentials.

NO ONE can pick up badges for other individuals even those who are with the same outlet.

Individuals whose names have been submitted in advance and approved must then pick up their Oscars Setup credential at the Oscars Credentials Office, located in the Echo Park Room at the Loews Hollywood Hotel at Hollywood & Highland Center (1755 North Highland Avenue). This office will be open Monday, February 24, to Saturday, March 1. Office hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

TO RECEIVE AN OSCARS SETUP CREDENTIAL, an individual must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older;
  • Present a government-issued photo identification (a valid U.S. drivers license, U.S. government-issued identification card or passport) matching the same valid ID submitted in the application;
  • Provide a local or on-site telephone number; and
  • Sign a receipt.

No Oscars Setup credentials will be issued on Oscar Sunday, March 2.

Oscars Setup credentials will give legitimate press representatives access to specific exterior locations from 9 a.m. Monday, February 24, until 11 a.m. on Oscar Sunday, March 2. At that time, Oscars Setup credentials will be void, and security will ask any Oscars Setup credential holders still on site to vacate the premises.

Oscars Setup credentials do not provide access to Red Carpet arrivals on Oscar Sunday.

Please note that Oscars Setup credentials will be made available only to media outlets wishing to report about the Academy Awards. Credentials will not be provided to media outlets or others seeking to photograph, audiotape or videotape material for any other purpose.

You may not use Oscars Setup credentials to grant access to Oscar nominees to interview them at the Hollywood & Highland® Center.  These interviews must be done off-site.

Unauthorized use of Academy credentials may result in the credentials being revoked, the user being ejected from the premises, and the user being subject to civil and/or criminal prosecution. All Academy events are private events. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences reserves the right to deny or revoke access or credentials to any media outlet or individual at any time, for any reason.
