EUREKA- The 86th Annual Academy Awards were held Sunday and the Humboldt Film Commission as well as the Eureka Theatre celebrated the event and News Channel 3 was there.

Film buffs, historians, and those who just wanted to enjoy a red carpet experience came to the venerable Eureka Theatre where they enjoyed hors d’oerves, period cocktails, and camaraderie and they got to see the Academy Awards on the big screen. Co-sponsored by Humboldt Film Commission and Eureka Theater, guests came dressed to the nines or casually. All were in a festive mood as Ellen Degeneres kicked off the worldwide event.

Officials are looking forward to the local Oscar celebration becoming an annual event.
