Renaming the Kodak Theatre

The bankrupt Eastman Kodak company has asked out of its naming agreement for the Kodak Theatre, the current Home of the Oscars, potentially desecrating 10 proud, corporate-sponsored years of awards-hosting tradition. Should its request be granted, the venue’s going to need a new name, and quickly. So rather than allow the Academy and the owners of Hollywood’s favorite tourist-clogged malltertainment destination suffer the embarrassment of a blank marquee, we’re here to help line them up with potential sponsors and names.
