It’s time for THE red carpet of the award season, competing predictions, and some good laughter. We’ve made a tradition, at WVFC, of live-blogging the awards ceremonies as they happen, to cheer on our favorites and dish about the absurdities.

On Sunday, March 2, we’ll be watching the 86th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. As our Chris Lombardi notes, “This year, we found plenty to cheer—Ellen De Generes as host, a pioneering Academy president, a field of Best Actresses all of whom fit WVFC’s profile—while noticing that Hollywood still doesn’t quite know how to celebrate us properly.”

We are excited at the idea that you, our Women’s Voices readers, will join us and cheer along. We’ll be Oscar Central, and will commence our live blogging at 7 p.m. (EST). To join us, simply visit our home page on Sunday, click on our Oscar Central post, and comment. (Log in any time during  the ceremony that you feel the urge to opine.) We welcome your remarks—as short or long as you like. Comments will be screened before we post them, and our online chats are famously civil (if a little catty sometimes about fashion). Feel free to share your point of view.
