The 4th Annual Oscars Preview: A “Carolina Blue Carpet” Event

In collaboration with the General Alumni Association

Please join us in walking the Carolina Blue carpet at the Varsity Theatre for our fourth annual Oscars Preview Event.  The nominees and snubs, the trends and outliers, what has changed and what stays the same, are all fair game for our film experts Dana Coen and Rachel Schaevitz.  Watch clips of both the 2016 Best Picture nominees and our panel’s alternative choices.  Get insight into your ballot choices and vote for Best Picture at this informed review of the current movie environment.

6:00-6:45 p.m. Carolina Blue carpet arrivals
