Oscar Coverage Planning Calendar

The following are dates of pre-Oscar® events/information. Media alerts and reminders will be sent out in advance of these dates to inform you of additional events and activities. For planning purposes you may wish to note some of the dates now.



The Academy will no longer be issuing Oscar Week Credentials (also known as Exterior Access and Oscars Setup credentials). Organizations granted Oscar Sunday media credentials will be able to utilize their credentials in permitted areas beginning Monday, February 3, 2019. Oscar Sunday credentials DO NOT 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 5.

If you have any questions, please contact credentials@oscars.org.

Press Office Hours: Monday, February 3rd – Saturday, February 8th from 9am – 5pm
Credential Office Hours: Monday, February 3rd – Saturday, February 8th from 7am – 5pm

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.
