Oscars, selfies, stars converge for Carnegie Science Center watch party

Carnegie Science Center will host an Oscar Watch Party on Feb. 24.

If you failed to receive a nomination from the Academy, you can cheer and jeer in comfort as the Carnegie Science Center hosts the “Rangos Red Carpet Watch Party” from 7 p.m. to midnight on Feb. 24.

Join hosts Pittsburgh drag queens Alora Chateaux and Friends to predict Academy Award winners and losers, judge the dresses and (yawn) tuxes, and watch for tears, eye rolls and expressions of disbelief from the nominees.

Guests will be able to take a photo with an Oscar statuette cut-out, test their Hollywood trivia, enjoy popcorn and soda and cash bars and walk a red carpet of their own.

Tickets are $25, and include one drink for those 21 and up; those under 21 can redeem their drink ticket for a bag of candy.

How good is your Oscar brain power? Take this test and see how smart you are when it comes to Hollywood’s golden statue of fame.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
