This year, our awards coverage was more extensive than ever, and Adam, our Oscar expert, laid his predictions out over three articles. However, the humble task of sitting through the ceremony and poking fun at it for over three hours falls to me. To be fair, there are a few exciting races this year, especially Best Picture. But when it comes to the actual program, I think we’re going to be rolling our eyes together as the Academy salutes “heroes”, whatever the hell that means.
My live-blogging will kick in around 8:00pm (EST) and then just keep refreshing the page for my latest thoughts on the 86th Academy Awards. I’ll also be tweeting (why only mock the Oscars on one platform?), and you can follow me on Twitter at @MattGoldberg. The 2014 awards race is almost over. Let’s pull each other across the finish line with jokes, faux-outrage, and perhaps, if we’re lucky, genuine happiness towards a deserving winner. The ceremony begins at 8:30pm (EST)
