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.

    Does Streisand know she can't get nominated for presenting? Calm down the dramatic pauses, Babs.

    I love Sandra Bullock (didn't see her movie tho) but kinda wish Gabby had won (didn't see her movie either). Congrats though to Sandra Bullock-from everything I've read and heard she's the coolest person in Hollywood.

  20. Isabel Siaba

    Last year she won the worst actress (or I'm wrong), but this year is the year of her!

    Even though Gabby is unlikely to win, it must be amazing to be nominated in such a fantastic field and to be introduced by Oprah!

    March 7, 2010 at 11:48 pm |
  32. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    I have to say these self-adoration society presentations really aren't that interesting. How many adjectives are there in our language?

    March 7, 2010 at 11:47 pm |
  33. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    I am thinking gabby will win tonight!

    March 7, 2010 at 11:47 pm |

  42. Les

    I'm going to cry when Stanley Tucci talks about Meryl Streep.

    March 7, 2010 at 11:42 pm |
  43. Manuja Ranasinghe

    Oprah has to be the center of attention. Mr.Whitaker lost lot of weight!!!

  44. Stacy from NJ

    MJ was in The Wiz.

    I liked the actor's tribute because it felt from the heart and gave me better insight into the actors who were nominated.

    And now it is the actress's turn.

    March 7, 2010 at 11:41 pm |
  45. Cessy-Chicago

    Oprah at the Oscars...why???????????

    March 7, 2010 at 11:41 pm |
  46. Tamara

    @Peter thanks for run down on Farrah movies. How did they forget her? Jeez! Jeff Bridges, too cool, didn't realize his father was Lloyd.

    March 7, 2010 at 11:41 pm |
  47. Jack Gray

    woohoo Oprah! now we're talking. that's the kind of presenter I'm talking about.

    March 7, 2010 at 11:40 pm |
  48. Manuja Ranasinghe

    Wrestler should have won last year

    March 7, 2010 at 11:40 pm |
  49. Wendy

    MJ was in 'The Wiz', and wasn't Bea Arthur in 'Mame'?
