2011oscarsToday is the day! It’s time for red carpets, teary speeches, and bets lost and won. We are live-blogging the Oscars tonight to cheer on our favorites and dish about the absurdities.

Starting at  7 p.m. (EST) tonight, 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.

Join us and cheer along. Click on our “Oscar Central” post, scroll down, 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.)

    Halle Berry makes me proud to be in my 40s! She’s just lovely.

    Bill Westenhoffer who won for Best Visual Effects, was trying to say something kind about Rhythm and Hues – the company that did all the art renderings on the film, that’s now going bankrupt. 300 people just lost their jobs and they couldn’t even let the guy finish the sentence! Couldn’t they have given him 5 more seconds to speak. Would they have done at to Robert DeNiro?

    From Twitter:
    Add Michelle Obama to the long list of “would be better hosts than Seth McFarlane.”
