Oscars May Leave Kodak Theater

Hasta la vista, baby. After 10 years of hosting the Oscars, the Kodak Theatre may soon be out of the picture. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences is considering moving the Oscars to the Nokia Theatre, a bigger venue in downtown Los Angeles. The Kodak, which seats 3,500, was built to the academy’s specifications before the 2002 telecast. The Nokia, which also holds the annual Emmy Awards and American Music Awards, would allow twice the number of people to attend the event.
