Tonight is the 86th Annual Academy Awards! As we do every year, starting at 7pm EST we’ll be live blogging the entire event from the pre-show red carpet extravaganza through the final Oscar acceptance speech and orchestral “wrap it up” movement.
This year’s Oscar nominees have some heavy hitters vying for the top awards, including 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Gravity, and The Wolf of Wall Street all up for multiple awards. Actors including Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chiwetal Eijofor, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, and Meryl Streep are up for top awards and it’ll be interesting to see who gets the statue!
