Live Blogging the Oscar Red Carpet

Arrivals are on ABC at 4pm West Coast/7pm East and also an E!  Our Oscar ceremony live blog begins at 5:30/8:30pm in a new post where we’ll be updating the winners.

First off, the Academy Awards now want to be known as the Oscars, which I think is a weird change in tradition, but kids these days! I am very excited though that Seth McFarlane will be hosting–he’s smart, funny, hip and edgy enough, yet aware enough of the Hollywood game and players not to be a moran like James Franco.

This year along with live blogging, I’m also having a party and some of the guests will be chiming in, with pot luck food themed to the nominees: For Argo, Persian sour cherry rice and Persian cucumbers for a variety of Middle Eastern dips, which cover more of the nominees. For Life of Pi, we have both Indian food and an apple pie  (plus apples for Snow White and the Huntsman). Zero Dark Thirty comes in with a friend’s birthday cake: It’s round, chocolate and at some point we’re all 30! For Frankenweenie, I have fancy pigs in a blanket which I am food coloring green.

Plus of course a loaf of bread for Les Miserables! And just for ggigles, the obligatory ham and cheese casserole (classy ham–prosciutto–plus foreign cheese), which covers anything you’d like to think it does.  I’ll link to Facebook photos in the comments so you can see what arrives.

Speaking of arrivals, these came for me! They are about 3 feet high!

So let’s settle in and discuss the dresses and shoes, the jewels and the hair (facial and ladies’), and enjoy.  Please remember to refresh your browser so you can see new  comments.

Is your tiara in place?

Chenoweth does have an annoying speaking voice


Elliott | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:13 pm 5

Quvenzhane is amazing


JP Sottile | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:19 pm 9

grabbing my vintage Eastern Airlines air sickness bag for the rest of Piers Morgan’s red carpet “interviews”


Twain | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:22 pm 10

I predict that a lot of chests will on display. Real and otherwise.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:22 pm 11

Oh maybe I shold switch form ABC


JP Sottile | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:23 pm 12

Morgan intv’ing Murdoch.


bgrothus | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:23 pm 13

Lots of very thin women. . .lots of sparkle.


bgrothus | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:25 pm 14

Ellie, I am with you, Quvenzhane is amazing. Really poised for such a little girl.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:27 pm 15

Wow the plugs are hideous “I’m just checking out your photos on and blah blah blah…”


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:28 pm 16

Hapless Piers desperate chasing her down “Katheryn, Katheryn Bigelow, we’re live on CNN…”


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:29 pm 17

Bradley Cooper brought his mom! What a dreamboat.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:30 pm 18

I can’t wait for Quvenzhane to get her license and start wrapping Bentleys around trees in Beverly Hills. Totally LL her future, I hope.

“Katheryn, do you have a loser face”? Piers is a JERK


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:31 pm 20

Yeah, the whole bit Giuliana Rancic did about Reese Witherspoon’s “hair” and “how great your hair looks!” was all a lead in to the hair-products commercial that came right afterwards on E!Entertainment.


LaNona | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:31 pm 21

Yes, Piers is an outsider, he can’t help us with insight or knowledge.
I must say the streets of Hollywood surrounding ground zero are nice and quiet.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:31 pm 22

There are SO many really good reasons to deport Piers Morgan. I’m watching E!, what are you guys watching, CNN?


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:33 pm 23

Guiliana Rancic: “Jennifer Lawrence still looks young with her hair pulled back from her face.” Because, she’s over the hill at 23?


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:33 pm 24

Kelly Osborne has a really hard time commenting on the good looks of other people, especially with her lavender hair.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:34 pm 25

I really am appalled by what a huckster fest the show has become.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:35 pm 26

I guess it’s cold where Ann Hathaway is. Very, very cold.


Elliott | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:39 pm 27

who thought Chenoweth would be a good idea – this isn’t about you Squealy Voice


Kelly Canfield | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:39 pm 28

Tiara? Check.

In our household, we are agreed that we are all pleased that there is no Oscar nom for Tom Cruise this year.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:42 pm 29

Kelly, may the gods of Oscars forever deny him that.
Oooh, not sure if I am loving coral red on Aniston.


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:43 pm 30

That Kidman dress (on E!) WOW!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:44 pm 31

Her arms are rounded and not too muscular. A train though is really hard to handle, and sitting on sequins–OUCH!


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:48 pm 32

Wow, gorgeous necklace on Jennifer Garner, and I love that she and Ben Affleck are so in lover.


bgrothus | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:49 pm 33

Have fun, I am off to non-blogworld at a friend’s house. I have not seen many of the movies, so have no Oscar knowledge. Just doing the usual, ogle the clothes.

My BFF’s son is kind of hot these days in the digi-scene there. They don’t brag so I have to keep my eyes pealed.


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 04:49 pm 34

Giuliana is amazed that Ben Affleck’s beard has its own Twitter account. I could have told her Jen Garner’s been on Twitter for years!

it a giant orgy of celebrity suck-face, media conglomerate cross-promotion and reality programming callowness. the “hosts” their “interviews” seem like mini-tryouts for a new version of Jersey Shore.

sorry Teddy, that was meant to be a response to Lisa @ 25


Lisa Derrick | Sunday February 24, 2013 05:01 pm 41

I saw Aro, The Master, and uh….

oo now I see Anniston – beautiful gown


Teddy Partridge | Sunday February 24, 2013 05:10 pm 43

Giuliana, speaking to the newly face-lifted Ryan (“Hi, doc, can you make me look a lot like Joel McHale?”) Seacrest: “Let me look on my Samsung Galaxy Note XP-290 right here…”

Product placement much?

I win!


Elliott | Sunday February 24, 2013 05:15 pm 46

Is this a segregated carpet?
