And it’s 8 PM! What’s next?
8 PM… what’s with those red Nazi latex gloves?
8:05 Jeff Goldblum looks like he stepped out of a 1950s think tank!
8:07 Ed Norton is having a good year! Birdman and Grand Budapest!
8:08 Big Hero 6! Baymax is getting lots of love! Yay, #diversity!
8:11 I like how the red carpet big names get interviewed, and then ABC transfers inside to chat with the “other” nominees! Those chats are actually better!
8:13 Zoe Saldana is presenting Best Animated Feature, and she was very diplomatic! Nice simple dress.
Is that Eddie Murphy’s wife? Wow. Stunning.
8:18 That’s a great history of Oscar by Robert Osborne!
8:20 Felicity Jones looks stunning! Can’t wait to see the selfies!
8:25 F! Direct TV is not working… so I’m stuck to backstage. There’s the voice of god telling people to sit down. I guess they use the big opening number to allow people to get to their seats before the awards start?
8:30 Nice film about Neil Patrick Harris!
8:43 No surprise there… Best Supporting Actor J.K. Simmons.
8:48 Briefcase? Not submerged in water? ABC.com has the NPH briefcase cam, so you can see how the stage is being prepped.
8:51 I like the three-ring circus stage!
8:54 During the commercials, the lights go low, and people mingle in the aisles.
8:57 And everyone races back to their seats!
8:59 Grand Budapest for Costume Design.
