You have to buy tickets to the Oscars or grammys. Usually theres networking or they cost about 2,000-5,000 bucks maybe less. Or you can sign up with agencies.
Apply to be a seatfiller!
Seatfillers are the people who literally "fill a seat" for no-shows or when a celebrity steps away from their seat. Seatfiller.com accepts applications for all sorts of award shows, including the Oscars.
Simply apply online, then send in a resume, cover letter and photo (I'm being completely serious here). I guess they want to make sure you're not some 400 lb. guy who lost half his face in a fire or something.
If you're chosen, they'll give you almost no notice, no guarantee of admittance to the show, no guarantee of which seat you'll be in and under no circumstances will you be allowed to talk with the celebrities (unless they speak to you first.) Good times!
Register to win a spot in the bleachers!
Would you rather catch the red-capet action? Win one of the 600 bleacher spots given away to the public every year by registering at oscars.org in September.
This new online registratation is a lot better than the old system in which fans had to camp out on the street for days in advance. That was nixed after 9/11 and the Oscar's move from the Shrine Auditorium to the Kodak Theatre.
But hurry, registration is only open for about a week in September, so don't miss your chance!
So if thought the Oscars were only for big-shot celebrities, well, you might be right. If you're not an Academy member, then your chances of actually getting inside to the see the award show is.... pretty much non-existent. Although, this hasn't stopped people from trying.
In the past, people have purchased scalped tickets for as much as $30,000 - $40,000. The Academy keeps a close eye on ticket reselling, so even if you manage to score tickets, your chances of being allowed to enter aren't good.Source(s): http://seatfiller.com/seatfiller2/index.asp

Go to the website of the awards show months and months and advance and check out ticket information there. That can direct you to going about getting them.

Get there early.
But look into being a "seat-filler," by contacting the appropriate people: the Academy, etc.
