The 75th Academy  Awards (On Sun., 032303, 8:30 e / 5:30 p)   Note: e = EST = ET = Eastern Standard Time and p = PST = PT = Pacific Standard Time

The Academy Awards, a.k.a. Oscars, for movies of the Year, 2002  will be presented on Sunday, March 23, 2003 at the Kodak Theater at Hollywood & Highland.  ABC will telecast the ceremony at
5:30 p.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time).  The ceremony will go on even though the US is at war with Iraq .  The ceremony will be performed in a humble manner (not in a glitzy manner); the red carpets and bleachers will not be used because of the war and the somber mood.  < Oscar parties toned down: http://entertainment.msn.com/news/article.aspx?news=118005  >

Oscar, the award statuette, is a gold-plated naked knight with a sword standing on a reel of film.  In the opinion of some of us (geeks!) at www.exploreamerica.info , the knight may stand on a DVD disk or newer media instead of the reel in the future.
