Oscar Central: Women’s Voices’ Live Blog of the 2018 Academy Awards

Today 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, March 4, we’ll be watching the 90th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

Join us right here, cheer along, scroll down, and comment 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!

And catch up on our Oscar-nominated movie coverage with Alex MacAaron’s reviews.

    Amazing that we there are such elegant articulate actors who are women over 80.

      Such a respectful move on the part of the Academy/producers.

    I loved Armand Hammer in “Call Me By Your Name,” but his lush wine-colored velvet suit reminds me of those “Velvis” paintings from the 1970s (i.e., paintings of Elvis and, believe it or not, Elvis with Jesus, rendered in black velvet!)

      Perfect description of the velvet suit. Sorry to admit that I have personally seen the Elvis in velvet as “artwork”.
      Thank you, thank you for the past being past.

    The Husband said if The Phantom Thread designer had not won this award, “It wouldn’t make any sense”.

    Gal Gadot is beautiful inside and out. There’s a marvelous clip of her at a Comic Con. A tiny little fan burst into tears when it was her turn to meet Wonder Woman. Gadot comforted her marvelously.

    EXCELLENT opening monologue.

    Kimmel is touching on a lot of important issues. I really like what he has done so far.

    Kimmel’s opening references to Weinstein was worlds better than Seth Meyers’ at Golden Globes.

    WOW! A night of change.

    Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock (who looks like an Oscar herself!) look stunning. Love the genuine friendship between them.

    Greta Gerwig – tonight’s token, but well-deserving – female director nominee.

    #AskHerMore – refreshing to have heard a lot less of “Who are you wearing?” so far this year. But, speaking of dresses. Whoopi is always Whoopi!

    Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd are certainly well-spoken representatives for Time’s Up. I’m eager to see how often the movement is referenced this evening.

    Mary J. Blige’s story is inspirational.

    Has everyone had a chance to see Mary J. Blige in Mudbound? Worth watching and available on demand.

      Yes! What a moment for her. So excited for her as she transitions into an actor. She’s got it!

    For the past hour, I’ve been walking as well as waltzing the red carpet (vicariously, that is) with the amazingly talented and fashionable actors arriving for the 90th Academy Awards. Let’s hear it for these two Hollywood icons Jane Fonda, 80, and Rita Moreno, 86! These ladies stole the show with their style and grace and beauty!

    Welcome all!
    Looking forward to enjoying the Oscars together tonight!

    THE Jane Fonda is a vision in white. https://twitter.com/Variety/status/970440883517538305.
    So is Mary J. Blige! https://twitter.com/PopCrave/status/970445930733408256

    Great to hear from you, Alex, our Oscar Live Blog In Chief!
    No wonder Rita looks so wonderful: she looks great because she does so much good
    for others.
