The 82nd Academy Awards – Are You Watching?

League of Extraordinary Dancers Perform at the 82nd Academy Awards

I’ll be watching Oscars tonight, will you? Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will host, and thanks to Academy Awards producer (and SYTYCD judge) Adam Shankman, there will be a slew of So You Think You Can Dance alums performing.

For the first time, the Academy opened up it’s slate of Best Picture nominees to 10 entries. You can check out all of the nominees right HERE.

I won’t be live-blogging, exactly, but here is a thread for those folks who want to comment.

  • Also, just for fun, I’ve started a Fun Office Pool for the Oscars. If you’re interested, you can sign up HERE.  I’ll announce the winners after the broadcast.

See you later! The broadcast begins at 8:30/5:30pt on ABC
