New York, NY: Have Your Photo Taken with an Oscar Statuette 2/22-2/25

Posted on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012 2:48 PM by Scott Jentsch

©A.M.P.A.S.®Movie fans in New York City will have a chance to see the actual Oscar statuettes that will be presented to the Best Actor and Best Actress winners at the 84th Academy Awards® ceremony when the Oscars come to Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal.

The "Meet the Oscars, Grand Central" exhibition will open tomorrow, Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 10am with a ribbon cutting hosted by Academy Award winner Melissa Leo.

Public viewing hours are 10am - 7pm on Wednesday, February 22nd, and 7am - 7pm Thursday, February 23rd through Sunday, February 26th. Admission is free.

Attendees will be able to have their photo taken holding an actual Oscar statuette, as well as view the Oscar that Michael Douglas won for Best Actor in Wall Street. A display of the statuettes in various stages of completion rounds out the exhibit.

Since the statuettes that will be presented at the ceremony on Sunday, February 26th, have a busy day on Sunday, they will leave the exhibit on Saturday.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on ABC, starting at 7pm ET and 4pm PT. If we're lucky, they'll be over before Monday.

Why should my picture be taken next to the Oscar statuette? I'm a big fan of the Academy Awards, but why should my picture be taken next to an Oscar statuette? I don't have to prove anything and it will be a waste of time to do so.
