And the Oscars Go to...Lincoln Center

New York City is selling tickets to the Academy Awards ceremony. The catch? The city won't be sending you to L.A. The tickets are for a live viewing of the Oscars at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, complete with a cocktail reception.

The tickets are going for $150 dollars and $225, and the proceeds will go to the cultural foundation of NYC and Company, the city's marketing and tourism department.

The event will be the culmination of a weeklong celebration of the Oscars, including a marathon screening of Oscar-winning films at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
