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, February 24, we’ll be watching the 85th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Seth MacFarlane. As our Alexandra MacAaron noted, “the good news for female audiences of a certain age lay in the Best Supporting Actress category, where two actresses over the age of 60 were named, and the average age of the nominees is nearly 50.” The average age is 50! Well, that’s right up our alley.
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 our live-blogging, simply visit our home page on Sunday, click on our Oscar Central post, and comment. We welcome your opinions—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 links and photos,—and Tweets @womensvoices, too! (Here’s how it went at last year’s Oscar night.)
