Oh, thank goodness!!
Though we don't fear change, there's a certain air of class about the
Kodak Dolby Theatre that stadiums can't match!
And since the Academy Awards ceremony is the most elegant of the season, we're SO happy to share the good news!!
Though the name has changed to Dolby, that golden theatre at Hollywood & Highland will remain Oscar's home for at least 21 more years. An arbitrary number… but yay!!
Academy president Tom Sherak is elated, saying:

At the Kodak Theatre in el lay, Kylie Minogue attended IRIS from Cirque du Soleil.
She was there enjoying the show with her boyfriend Andres Velencoso and two other friends.
After seeing what we're sure was an ah-may-zing show, the group went backstage and snapped some pics with the cast.
Even though we're sure she loved the show, many of the cast were big fans of hers!
She made sure they knew how much she loved the show and she said she was in "awe and wonderment" of everyone.
They're all fans of each other! So cool.

It looks like the Academy is looking around to see if there's another venue in Los Angeles to better fit their needs.
And we're not sure we like this!!
They're currently nestled in the beautiful Kodak Theatre — adding even more MAGIC and SPARKLE to Hollywood Boulevard.
And while they're technically under contract to remain with Kodak for 20 years, there's a clause that allows them to "explore." But we don't want them to!
Take the Nokia Theatre for example. Sure, it's larger and newer, but does it have the same class and grandeur that the Oscars deserve?? We don't know..
But a rep for the Academy insists they're only exercising the option to see what happens:

David Beckham had a dudes night out on Saturday with his three boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
The family enjoyed Cirque du Soleil's production of IRIS at the Kodak Theatre in El Lay, but Becks wasn't the only famous face in the audience.
Taylor Lautner watched the show for the THIRD time, while Glee's Dianna Agron attended as well for the first time.
The celebs joined a few of the performers backstage for a group photo and David even signed a few soccer balls for his fans.
It may not be the last the IRIS performers will see of him backstage either. David enjoyed the show so much that he promised his family would be back again!
