ABOUT Alt.Oscar:

While Hollywood caters to "Celebrity Culture", the Alties advocates "Participatory Culture" where the velvet rope is open to all, encouraging everyone to participate - to, express their style, points of view and humor. We enjoy the style of the Oscars and pay homage to all the actors and filmmakers but with New York City attitude.
