Oscars tickets cost £570… and that’s only if you’re nominated, according to Antonio Banderas

The Oscars are one of the biggest nights in the awards calendar, but you’d better get saving up if you were ever hoping to get a ticket…

Antonio Banderas has revealed that tickets to the awards cost $750 (£570)… and that’s only if you’re nominated. If you’re just an average Joe, it’s a lot, lot more…

The Pain and Glory star, 59, is nominated for his first Oscar, and he revealed to James Corden on The Late Late Show that he’s going to have to be selective about who he takes with him.

He revealed: ‘I’m coming with my girlfriend and I want to take my daughter. I have four [tickets] because my daughter has a boyfriend.’

When James asked if nominees got to choose however many seats they wanted, Antonio explained: ‘Actually, no. You get four and that’s it, including me.

‘And for two of [the four seats] you have to pay, actually. Of course, I am paying… I think it’s $750.’

James was understandably shocked by the sum, exclaiming: ‘Shut the front door! $750 to watch a group of millionaires give each other gold statues?’

And while that may seem like a princely sum already, $750 (£570) is actually the discounted rate given to nominees, so normal people hoping to go along for the ride are actually charged even more for the chance to rub shoulders with the A-list.

Antonio added: ‘That’s for people who actually are involved in this. I think that the tickets for normal…

‘I don’t know exactly the number, but for somebody that is not involved in this at all, somebody that comes from whatever and wants to go to the Oscars, I think it’s a little bit more than that.’

The Oscars will take place on Sunday, 9 February 2020.
