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 28, we’ll be watching the 88th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Chris Rock.

Join us right here, cheer along, scroll down, 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. Feel free to share links and photos—and Tweets @womensvoices, too!

    OMG! Mad Max has THREE OSCARS.

    One happy house here.

    The Husband is thrilled!! Mad Max has TWO Oscars. But, I think this is it for Mad Max. Don’t tell The Husband.

    The Husband is SO happy that Mad Max won its first Oscar of the night. Great speech however. The world of Mad Max could happen if we aren’t kinder to each other and take better care of our planet.

    How fitting that Cate Blanchett presents the Costume Award. She is already the winner of 2016 Oscars in our book!

    Ok, the ticker acceptance speech is officially a horrible idea!

    Yes! Well-deserved, Alicia!

    None reading or cares about the ticket. Yes annoying.

    Agreed about opening monologue. Well done. Just saw Brooklyn this afternoon. Such a beautiful film

    Will Jeda Pinket be mad at Chris? I think he dissed her in monologue. Anyone agree.

    What’s up with the ticker? Distracting and annoying.

    Spotlight has its first Oscar…are more to come?

    Agreed!

    I think Chris really did a fantastic job. He said what had to be said with grace and humor. He had a really difficult job.

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 8:42 pm

    YES! It’s about OPPORTUNITY.

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    Wow! Thought-provoking monologue. Is it “‘Fetch me some lemonade’ racist?” and “Hollywood is sorority racist.”

    Reply
  • Patricia Yarberry Allen, M.D. February 28, 2016 at 8:36 pm

    Chris Rock looks smart in his white jacket.
    And he has the right tone so far…

  • Patricia Yarberry Allen, M.D. February 28, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    Love that Lady Gaga is speaking out and singing an anthem about rape and sexual abuse and Ruffalo and the cast of Spotlight are hammering the Catholic church to admit that priests have abused children under their care for how long???

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Mark Ruffalo’s wife’s name is “Sunrise???”

    Pat, you’re right. Charlize’s dress is wonderful. Lots of critics think she should have been nominated for Mad Max.

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    Gaga has really become an eloquent spokesperson. She continues to surprise and impress me.

    Never thought I’d say it but I love Gaga’s outfit !!

    Cherlize Theron Is wearing the hottest RED dress in the history of red dresses! Call the fire department quick.

    I loved Lady Gaga’s skirt over trousers evening dress. She has such great taste.

    I love Michael Strahan! So funny, easy, and delightful to listen to.

    No one has eaten for days, Andrea. Then there are the celebrity colonic treatments for that stubborn bloat. So glad that you joined us!

    Robin Roberts is a great interviewer. Refreshingly smart questions and comments

    I hope sweats are appropriate to watch in!! Beautiful dresses- how many pairs of spanks do you think go into a night like this?!

    Open the dictionary to “elegant,” and there’s a picture of Cate!

    Kerry Washington on why she chose NOT to boycott the Oscar’s in response to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy:

    “I respect the decision not to show up. But I think we also need everyone at the table if we are going to implement institutional change.”

  • Patricia Yarberry Allen, M.D. February 28, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Do I have to drink now?

  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Kerry Washington had a very interesting perspective about wanting to be a voice at the table.

    I like watching the red carpet with the sound muted. That way I can see the beautiful gowns without having to hear, “What are you wearing?”

    Really looking forward to what he has to say. He doesn’t usually pull punches.

    I have to work tomorrow, Alex! I could never drink that much and work. Everyone seems to think that Chris Rock can’t discuss “the elephant in the room”, be funny and celebrate the winners. Of course he can.

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 7:17 pm

    Should we each take a drink whenever they allude to this year’s inclusion “controversy?” I’m getting a little tired of their praising “the conversation.”

    Robin Roberts just interviewed three lovely leading women on the red carpet. Here’s what our resident movie expert Alexandra MacAaron had to say about their performances:

    Alicia Vikander of The Danish Girl

    Saoirse Ronan of Brooklyn

    Brie Larson of Room

    Reply
  • Alexandra MacAaron February 28, 2016 at 7:14 pm

    Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander both have very youthful hairdos. Um … maybe because they are very youthful. So much talent in such young women. Wow.

    Yes!!! “All of us had someone come over on a boat.”

    Love the Calvin Klein green dress on Brooklyn star! “America is made up of immigrants”…someone tell this to the Donald

    The Red Carpet has started! I like Saoirse Ronan’s mismatched earrings. And her nod to the Emerald Island.
