So it looks like your edgy independent short film will once again be snubbed by the Academy Awards.
Don't give up hope. There's still a chance to get good seats for the red carpet at this year's Oscars.
Beginning Monday, online registration will open for 700 red carpet bleacher seats.
The lottery opens 9 a.m. Monday and ends 9 p.m. Sept. 20. Star-gazers and snubbed filmmakers can register at oscars.org/bleachers.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will announce the winners in October. The ceremony is scheduled for March 7.
