After a long, long, long lead-up (please, The Academy, move the awards back to February), the Oscars finally arrive on Sunday night. And while there are plenty of ways to catch up with all the nominees before showbiz's biggest and brightest celebration, there's only one true way to catch the Academy Awards: with us and WISN 12 at No Studios' Oscars watch party

Beginning at 5 p.m., the creative hub's Skyline Bar + Lounge and its beautiful fourth-floor views of the city will host the starry spectacular, beginning with a red carpet entrance (awards show-level attire suggested but by no means required), appetizers, live music and a variety of cocktails, champagne and saké – a Skyline specialty. The festivities will continue as we reach the start of the show: watching all the surprising wins and meme-worthy moments together when the Academy Awards begin at 7 p.m., complete with yours truly co-hosting the evening (and probably grumbling about any "Don't Look Up" wins). Throughout the night, WISN 12 will broadcast from the party as well, sharing the crowd's thoughts on the winners, the losers and the glamorous one-of-a-kind show.

It won't just be the folks in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles coming away winners either. Attendees will each receive a nomination ballot – with whoever gets the most winners right at the end of the night receiving a special prize.

Tickets for the watch party – which cost $30 for general admission and $20 for No Studios members – are available at this link, along with parking tips and more info.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
