AC360° Producer/Writer

Starting tonight at 7 p.m. ET join us here for the AC360° Academy Awards Live Blog.  The winners, the losers, the debate over Best Supporting Kardashian…we’ve got your running commentary. And sure, considering all that’s going on in the world, the Oscars aren’t hugely important. But if you’re looking to get away from the bleak news-of-the-day for a few hours, then this blog is the place for you.

We should also point out that we’re not encouraging you to change the channel from CNN, but if you’re going to watch the Oscars anyway, you might as well watch them with us.

What makes me qualified to lead this live blog? Well, I once worked at a video store/tanning parlor. And I own Fletch on VHS.

If you would like to participate in our Live Blog (and we hope you do) please follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Please keep your comments short
2) Don’t write in ALL CAPS (we don’t like screaming)
3) No links
4) Use your real name

Please note that due to volume we may not be able to post all comments.

    How did they miss Farah Fawcett in the memorials? Avitar got robbed, and Morgan Freeman should have won for best actor!

    Avatar, the largest grossing movie of all time gets the big shaft. What a travesty. James Cameron (genius) was even gracious this time..

    They should just do the most anticipated awards first since the die hards will sit it out regardless. Sandra's speech was quite touching. She's a bright lady. Thanks for hosting Jack.

    Yo Babs-horrible outfit. Lose the ugly lace. Get with the program. This is 2010. Victorian lace is no longer in style.
