Charter a jet to the Oscars in 2016 for a red carpet worthy event. This year’s Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Awards take place on February 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, where the Academy Awards Ceremony has been held since 2002.
For the motion picture industry, this is the biggest night of the year with awards given in a wide range of categories, including:
- Best Picture
- Best Director
- Best Actor and Best Actress
- Best Supporting Actor and Actress
These are in addition to categories for songs, musical scores, lighting, animation, editing, visual effects, cinematography, makeup and hairstyling, and costume design.
The night is filled with pageantry, celebrities, and red carpet fashion. You’ll arrive red carpet ready when you charter a jet to the Academy Awards and arrive in the type of luxury that sets the tone for the entire event.
This year’s Oscar’s Ceremony is being hosted by Chris Rock. It is his second time hosting the awards. The first was the 77th ceremony in 2005.
Films with Multiple Nominations
While there are dozens of films that have received nominations this year, there is a lengthy list of films that have received multiple nominations. These are among those receiving five or more nominations for the 2016 Oscar’s:
- The Revenant (leading the list with nominations in 12 categories)
- Mad Max: Fury Road (10 nominations)
- The Martian (7 nominations)
- Bridge of Spies (6 nominations)
- Carol (6 nominations)
- Spotlight (6 nominations)
- The Big Short (5 nominations)
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens (5 nominations)
The night serves to celebrate far more than just the films being honored though.
Charter Jet Scheduling
Scheduling a private jet charter to the 2016 Academy Awards offers convenience and relaxation. They are surprisingly affordable when you consider all the benefits. Especially if you share the costs with a few of your favorite friends who are flying along.
Los Angeles International Airport – LAX is perfect for international private flights into Los Angeles for the Oscar’s. Be aware, though, that this airport does not accept private domestic flights, though. LAX is located 12 miles from Dolby Theatre.
Van Nuys Airport – VNY, by contrast offers an ideal landing location for domestic private flights but does not accommodate international private flights. It is 14 miles from Dolby Theatre.
Bob Hope Airport – BUR is located a short 7.2 miles from Dolby Theatre and is often used by Hollywood execs for its convenience.
Ontario International Airport – ONT is a bit further out, at 47 miles from the theatre, but presents a welcome option for many Oscar’s travelers.
John Wayne Airport – SNA may be a little further away but remains the second busiest airport in the area and can handle any traffic the Oscar’s throw its way.
