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.

Congratulations to the Queen of the World, Kathryn Bigelow!!!! What a great movie! And congrats to all the winners. It was the perfect night!
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..
Money cant buy awards.
Thanks gang, it was real...long. LOL
That was fun!
Take it away The Hurt Locker! Good night
Thanks Jack, everyone. It's been real.
Good night friends!
The night was very good !!!!!!!!
Thanks! You are great and cute !!!!!!!!!!
Good night Jack & everyone!!!!
See you later on AC 360 live blog!!!!!!!! Have a good sleep and tight sleep!!!!!!!! Have a good week!
Thanks everyone. It was fun. See you next year. Or on Twitter in ten minutes.
I could not be happier – congrats to The Hurt Locker!
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.

Congrats Bullock, Bigelow and The Hurt Locker. I think I did really, really well in my Oscar pool.
Thanks for hosting the party, Jack!
Yeah–Jack–wouldn't want to be in the limo with JC–lost director and best picture!!
Wow. Hurt Locker really deserved it. Long show, goodnight y'all!
Ha ha ha James Cameron...has probably stormed out of the building
WOW. Speed shooting for Best Pic. Go, Hurt Locker.
Thanks for making my work more bearable tonight, Jack, other commenters, & AC360 blog. Good night, everyone!
@Jack: That limo ride just got longer.

Oh...yowser...James Cameron....NOT. A. HAPPY. CAMPER.

Kathryn Bigelow's speech was like it was the only one meant to be heard for this category. Excellent.
I know James Cameron is pissed that his ex-wife won BEST DIRECTOR
Congrats Kathryn Bieglow!
Yo Babs-horrible outfit. Lose the ugly lace. Get with the program. This is 2010. Victorian lace is no longer in style.
International Women's Day ... it is the first time a woman wins Best Director!
Come on Oscar...let this one be a first!
Awesome! Simply Awesome! WTG Katheryn Bigelow! Best Director!
Yayyyy Sandy!!! If Gabby didn't win thats definitely who I was rooting for! Congrats, Ms. Bullock!
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
