Looking for an Oscar watching party? Well here are a few great events in Dallas and Fort Worth!
Walk the red carpet at the Modern beginning at 6:00 PM, where DFW.com’s crack team of entertainment junkies will be on hand to talk about the nominated movies and to tell you if your outfit is worthy of a nomination. Beginning at 7:00 PM, the Oscar broadcast will be shown live via satellite in Café Modern and in the Modern’s auditorium. Throughout the evening, we’ll also have a viewing screen in the Modern Lobby with light snacks and drinks available for purchase, and fabulous prizes handed out during the commercial breaks!
No advanced tickets needed this year. Auditorium seating will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
