The Academy Awards Rebranded as “The Oscars” Why Isn’t TheOscars.com Working?
I’m sure a lot of you will be watching the Academy Awards’ tonight. This is actually the first year in which the award show has been officially Rebranded as The Oscars.
The award show is put on by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences which owns most of all the related domain names, including AcademyAwards.com, Oscar.com, Oscars.com and TheOscars.com
All of the domain names forward to the official site for the Award show at oscar.go.com except for TheOscars.com, which is the new official name of the Show, which inexplicably isn’t resolving although its under the control of the Academy and has the same servers of Oscars.com
The official site of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is Oscars.org but they do not own TheOscars.org which is parked
The Academy also own Oscars.net but they do not own TheOscars.net, which is parked
The Academy owns AcademyAwards.com but does not own TheAcademyAwards.com
TheAcademyAwards.com forwards to Jimmy.com and is for sale.
Looks like the Academy hasn’t learned what domainers know which is the value of “The” domains.
