2011 INSPIRATION
Dragon Tattoos, War Horses. Sherlock, Harry and those Glittery Vampires back at it again... Many others! How about "Oh, The Places You will Go at Burning Man"? Other online memes?

OCCUPIER RANT: We, a committed cadre of creative insurgents and anonymous film buffs, believe it is time for the 99% to overcome the oppression of celebrity hamminess, Botox, and scripted set pieces to Occupy the Oscars. We believe that fabulousness, attitude and glamor are not just for the elite few of the Hollywood machine but for all of those willing to make an effort and strut their stuff, given a stage and an opportunity. Occupy the red carpet. Occupy the acceptance speech. Occupy the dressing room. Take back the Oscars. Overthrow the old order and install art for fun’s sake in its stead. Because revolution does not mean social upheaval alone – it also means fashion, frivolity, and festival.

*** NOTE*** No political statement's are intended in the making of this farce. This is a red-carpeted stage where fun shall be made... At your discretion.

To volunteer, be a photo/video paparazzi, provide faux-glamorous art or decor or participate in the "Occupy The Stage" protestor vs. riot cop dance off, please contact Alty Producer Lina at: lina.skiba@gmail.com

ABOUT

About the Alties: Whereas Hollywood caters to "Celebrity Culture", Alt.Oscar advocates "Participatory Culture" where there are no VIP areas and where the velvet rope is open to anyone who makes an effort. We enjoy the style of Hollywood and pay homage to all the actors and filmmakers but with our own New York City Style!

The Kostume Kult arts collective (aka Costume Cultural Society non-profit) advocates costuming, participatory art forms and culture jamming while hosting a variety of annual themed events.
