It’s that time of the year again folks, with the 82nd Academy Awards happens tonight in LA. According to reports, this year’s Oscar academy awards will be much more exciting than last year, with a record 10 nominations for Best Picture and a hosting lineup of Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.
But if you live in New York, you may be missing this year’s Academy Awards (more info below)!
Will Avatar, a movie that was named after something almost everyone in social media and search has on their Twitter profile, forum page or blog, take the big Oscar prize for Best Picture? Or will Hurt Locker run away with the Oscar? And what about Precious? Isn’t about time the cast & crew from Precious win something besides Monique’?
ABC will be airing the ceremonies on TV starting 8 p.m. EST (5 pm for the Left Coast), and E! Online will be doing their Live from the Red Carpet (something the wife will make me switch over to around 5pm to catch Jay Emanuel). But if you live in NEW YORK where ABC may not be available on Cablevision, you are outside of the US and can’t catch it on TV OR prefer to watch the Academy Awards on your laptop, we’ve got several good places for you to watch it online.
