Malaga, one of the largest tourist centers of Spain, intends to attract tourist attention not only with its airport and opportunities for recreation. "Gateway to the Costa del Sol", Malaga wishes to offer its candidacy to host the Oscar ceremony.
Initiative to receive the famous American film award in Spain was announced by the head of the Spanish hotel chain Reserva Hoteles Javier Checa. Committee to support the candidacy of Malaga, which was organized by Javier Checa, plans to submit its application to the American Film Academy in the near future.
The businessman has already received the support of mother of one of the most famous Spanish actors in the world - Antonio Banderas. However, it is not specified whether Banderas knows about the intention of his mother.
Javier Checa offers the U.S. film academics one in four years to hold Oscar ceremony outside the USA. Mechanism for selecting candidate cities, which will host the ceremony, is proposed to be developed by analogy with the draw of the Football World Cup. Checa proposes to make Malaga the first candidate. All the details of such an unusual step are available on www.oscarsmalaga.com.
Currently the traditional venue for the Oscar ceremony is the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, which has been hosting the ceremony since 2001.
It is not known how the organizers of the "Oscar" will react to the initiative of the Spanish hotel. However, now we can say that hotels in Malaga received good advertisement.
