Kodak name banished from Oscar telecast
The Academy Awards will still take place at what was until very recently known as the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. However, now that Kodak has filed for bankruptcy and gotten out of its naming rights deal for the theater, announcers on the telecast will refer to the facility simply as the Hollywood & Highland Center.
It's not as catchy, but at least no one will have to worry about creditors interrupting the ceremony.
