Live-Blogging the Oscars!

I'll be doing my first live-blog of the Oscars this evening, and will start here with my predictions. Take these with a major grain of salt, because the only Best Picture nominee I've seen is "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." I liked it a lot, but as you can see below I'm not predicting that it will win the big prize. I think this is going to be another one of those years where the awards are spread around, with a little something going to everybody. But we shall see!
