NYC quiz preview: The Big OSCARS Quiz Thing THIS SUNDAY!

The word from L.A. is that the BQT's first ever Oscars spectacular was indeed spectacular. And yes, it's coming to the BQT's original turf, New York City, on that most hallowed days, Oscars Sunday.

We're back at 92YTribeca, which every year does its own Oscars blowout: the red-carpet action and the full ceremony on the big screen. And for this year, one low ticket price buys you access to the quiz and the ceremony. Luckily, 92Y's fine, fine café makes spending an excessive amount of time there an unusually pleasant experience (but you of all people already know about that).

Just like in L.A., we have a bonanza of Oscars-centric trivia delights, including "20 Best Pictures: All at the Same Time," "Beeest Sooong Wiiiners," "Say Thank You and Get Off the Stage," and plenty more. It leads to three buzzermazing Three-Way Finale, where we'll crown New York City's undisputed masters of movie-award knowledge. I mean, right?

And prizes! For this special event, we're forgoing the cash jackpot, but fear not, fun is your prize. Plus a ton of great tickets to future 92YTribeca events—a pair for each:

How about a live edition of Randy Cohen's radio show Person, Place, Thing, featuring Rachel Dratch, happening March 13?

Or a the March 14 edition of ace embarrassing-storytelling series Mortified? (A frequent BQT L.A. sponsor, in fact.)

And who wouldn't want tickets to The Daily Show Live, with stand-up from the TDS staff, also on March 14?

Plus—a big 25th-anniversary screening of the groundbreaking (and Academy Award–winning) Who Framed Roger Rabbit, happening February 27.

Not to mention, an April 24 screening of that 1998 nostalgia-drenched classic, Slums of Beverly Hills, with director Tamara Jenkins present for a postscreening Q&A.

And music! Hit-making singer-songwriter-balladeer Abiah will be live on the 92YTribeca stage on March 9.

And more music! Musical polymath David Yazbek—both a fiery live performer and the composer behind Broadway musicals including Dirty Rotten Scoundrels—is live on March 11.

Not bad at all. And we'll have more, some excellent tickets from a bunch of our familiar (and new) theater sponsors, a few more goodies, books and DVDs, etc., etc. Stay tuned—better yet, buy your tix to the Big Oscars Quiz Thing now!

The sport mimics real life and employs virtual-currency to buy a house, furniture,
etc,. The huge advantage can also be that these phrases can be extended enough to achieve more time to you.
