The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has reportedly been planning to shift the prestigious Oscar awards venue from Kodak Theatre in Hollywood to Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.



Having been held at the Kodak Theatre since 2001, the annual Academy Award ceremony might move to a new venue outside Hollywood after 2013. AEG, which operates the LA Live and 7,100-seat Nokia Theatre, has already been in discussion with the AMPAS about the issue.



The new venue is said to offer more seats and better infrastrucrure than Kodak. However, this year’s Academy Awards will be presented at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and Highland Center on February 26.
