Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201311:04 pm

Thanks to everyone who followed along! Alyssa and I are very grateful!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201311:03 pm

I’d say now I need to watch these movies I’ve been talking about all night. Thanks to everyone who put up with us tonight!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201311:03 pm

I got some predictions right (“Argo” and Daniel Day-Lewis). Some? Ehhh, let’s not talk about those.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201311:02 pm

Plenty of fun this time around. Overall, I thought it was a good show. Lots of surprises and great performances!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201311:00 pm

Ben Affleck seems like such a genuine guy. I think his speech has been my favorite.

David Hansen David Hansen February 24, 201310:57 pm

I guess Argo could have been mentioned in our poll. Sorry, guys.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:57 pm

Still can’t believe Affleck wasn’t nominated for Best Director!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:56 pm

Ben Affleck has gotten the last word. “Argo” wins.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:56 pm

Best Picture goes to “Argo!”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:53 pm

Well this is random. Hey Michelle.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:53 pm

What? Michelle Obama?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:52 pm

Best Picture. This will be a fun one. I’m going with….”Argo.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:51 pm

I wish I could make a prediction for what will win Best Picture, but I honestly have no idea. May the odds be ever in your favor, nominees.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:49 pm

This guy is incredible. Best Actor three times? That’s insane!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:49 pm

Daniel Day-Lewis. Not shocked at all.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:48 pm

Best Actor to Daniel-Day Lewis!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:46 pm

Daniel-Day Lewis for “Lincoln?” That’s what I’m going to go with.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:45 pm

She was adorable. So was the smile on Bradley Cooper’s face.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:44 pm

No. Way. Jennifer Lawrence. I’m speechless.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:44 pm

Best Actress goes to Jennifer Lawrence!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:42 pm

Maybe Chastain?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:41 pm

Lawrence or Riva. Who’s it going to be?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:41 pm

Best Actress. Here we go.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:38 pm

I know how badly everyone wants J-Law to win Best Actress, but I kind of want to see what kind of acceptance speech Quvenzhane Wallis would give. She’s just too cute!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:37 pm

If it wasn’t going to be Spielberg, it had to be Lee.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:35 pm

I still feel like Affleck got snubbed. And all these “Life of Pi” wins are making me particularly nervous that it’s going to pull Best Picture.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:34 pm

Best Director really goes to Ang Lee for “Life of Pi.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:34 pm

Best Director goes to….Ben Affleck! Oh wait.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:31 pm

It’s 10:30, and we still aren’t finished. Typical Oscars!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:28 pm

Tarantino just ended his speech with a “peace out.” Complete with a peace sign and all.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:28 pm

Tarantino is so charmingly weird. Love it.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:27 pm

Best Original Screenplay goes to Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:24 pm

Oops, I forgot one. Adapted Screenplay goes to Chris Terrio for “Argo.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:24 pm

Oscar goes to “Argo.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:24 pm

Adapted Screenplay? I’m going with “Lincoln.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:22 pm

According to our trusty poll (which only has four of the nine movies listed), “Zero Dark Thirty” should win tonight.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 201310:21 pm

Don’t forget Screenplays, Alyssa!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:21 pm

10 minutes left! This is when things start to get good.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:17 pm

In case you didn’t catch that, “Skyfall” won best original song. If I’m correct, the only categories left are Best Director, Actor, Actress and Picture. I don’t even want to make any predictions because I’ll probably fail.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:16 pm

I kind of feel bad for Norah Jones. She just got up there and sang only to here Adele beat her.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:12 pm

Best Original Song: OK, now I really think I should put my money on “Skyfall.” Although big surprise…I’d like to see “Suddenly” from “Les Misérables” win.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:11 pm

…Awkward. Good thing I don’t have any money to actually put on anything. Mychael Danna and “Life of Pi” won.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:09 pm

Best Original Score: I’m putting my money on “Skyfall.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 201310:03 pm

Barbara Streisand is keeping up with the sparkly dress theme that’s going on tonight. She looks classy.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:58 pm

This may sound morbid, but I enjoy the “In Memoriam” segment. Always beautiful.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:49 pm

Production Design goes to “Lincoln.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:48 pm

Why does she always sound like she hates the world?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:48 pm

It was.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:48 pm

Daniel Radcliffe and Kristen Stewart? Why do I feel like this is going to be awkward.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:48 pm

As an avid Harry Potter fan, I can’t stand that Kristen Stewart is standing next to Daniel Radcliffe right now.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:44 pm

The fact that Nicole Kidman is 45 is disgusting.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:39 pm

Fun Fact: Adele recorded the vocals for “Skyfall” in about 10 minutes.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:38 pm

I’m kind of jealous of Adele’s baby. I bet she belts out a great rendition of “Rock-a-Bye-Baby.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:37 pm

LET THE SKYFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:35 pm

J-Law looks gorgeous, but seemed a bit unenthusiastic with that introduction.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:35 pm

Fun Fact: I have a little bit of a huge crush on J-Law. And now, here’s Adele, who will, without a doubt, kill it,

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:33 pm

Film Editing. This had to be another tough one. The Oscar goes to “Argo.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:31 pm

Why didn’t I know about this contest? I could totally be on stage handing out awards right now.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:27 pm

WAIT…Anne Hathaway’s Oscar WASN’T for her performance as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises”?!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:26 pm

Adele is performing “Skyfall” next. I used to not be a big fan of Adele, but I’m beginning to join the bandwagon.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:25 pm

Tony and I should obviously be a part of the Academy. We’ve got this whole prediction thing down pretty well.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:25 pm

Jaws theme in 3…2…

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:23 pm

The Oscar goes to…Anne Hathaway for “Les Miz.” Well deserved. This girl is America’s sweetheart.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:21 pm

If Anne Hathaway doesn’t win this award, I quit.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:21 pm

Side note: Christopher Plummer is too charming.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:21 pm

Best Supporting Actress. Here we go. I’m calling Hathaway.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:19 pm

This “Sound of Music” reference is the second best thing to happen all night.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:19 pm

“No BS. We have a tie.” Nice job, Mark Wahlberg.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:17 pm

How many more categories until Best Actor/Actress and Best Picture? Really, though…

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:17 pm

“Zero Dark Thirty” gets the first Oscar for Sound Editing. The second Oscar for Sound Editing goes to “Skyfall.” This is ridiculous. In a good way, but I wouldn’t have expected something like this.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:16 pm

How the heck is there even a tie? Is this allowed?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:15 pm

Sound Editing is…a tie? Is this real?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:12 pm

Finally, I get one right. “Les Miserables” wins Sound Mixing Oscar.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:12 pm

Sound Mixing? I’m going to guess “Les Miz.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:11 pm

Ted from “Ted” is here. Yes.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:07 pm

I’m also thrilled that Anne Hathaway changed her dress. I was having major issues with her other one.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20139:07 pm

That was breathtaking. Granted, I loved the movie so I’m probably biased, but I don’t even care.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:05 pm

Anyone else think the entire “Les Miserables” cast should do another musical-turned-film for “Cats?”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:02 pm

“Les Miserables” time.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20139:00 pm

Jennifer Hudson, man. “American Idol” found something great here.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:59 pm

OK Catherine Zeta-Jones. I’m glad you can lip sync. Now let Jennifer Hudson show you how it’s done.

I am absolutely buzzing waiting for the “Les Misérables” to come out!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:54 pm

This is what I have been waiting for all night! Don’t be alarmed if I’m MIA for a few moments…

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:52 pm

Maybe all the predictions will be wrong and “Amour” WILL win Best Picture. It seems that the unknown movies always come out of the walls to win awards at these shows anyway.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:51 pm

“Amour” on the board with the Foreign Language Film Oscar. Now, can it win Best Picture?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:49 pm

Fun Fact: The Huffington Post has Daniel Day-Lewis’ at a whopping 99.6% chance at winning Best Actor for his role as the 16th President of the United States in “Lincoln.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:44 pm

Ben Affleck introduces Best Documentary. The winner? “Searching for Sugar Man.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:40 pm

Make sure to vote in our handy poll above! I still have a feeling “Argo” will win, but since it’s not there, choose the second best.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:38 pm

Liam Neeson makes everything cool.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:37 pm

I’m still deciding who’s going to win Best Harlem Shake Video.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:36 pm

Documentary Short: Inocente.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:34 pm

Live Action Short Film: Curfew.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:27 pm

Not to mention she’s 76 and still sounds pretty dang good!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:26 pm

Shirley Bassey takes the stage to sing the “Goldfinger” theme song. She looks mighty classy, if you ask me.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:22 pm

50 Years of Bond. This should be fun.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:22 pm

Halle Berry looks like she’s straight out of “The Hunger Games.”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:21 pm

“Les Miserables” gets Makeup and Hair-styling. Yes, that IS a category.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:21 pm

Are those pink tights? I guess I missed the memo that I was watching a ’90s workout video.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:19 pm

You know the show has gotten to the “boring categories” when the presenters stay up there to announce more than one winner.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:19 pm

Costume Design Oscar goes to “Anna Karenina.” Basically, yet ANOTHER 1800′s Kiera Knightley film.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:16 pm

Jennifer Aniston and Channing Tatum? I’m listening.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:13 pm

And he gets played of with classic Hollywood music. Well done, ABC. I particularly liked Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s facial expressions.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:12 pm

Best Animal in a Supporting Role should go to Richard Parker from “Life of Pi.”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:12 pm

Can we just talk for a hot second about how handsome all “The Avengers” guys looked on stage?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:11 pm

Visual Effects also goes to “Life of Pi.” Once again, definitely deserved it.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:09 pm

“Life of Pi” is about a guy who is stranded for days at sea on a boat. Looks like this guy accepting the award did the same.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:08 pm

“Life of Pi” for cinematography.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:07 pm

….maybe?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:06 pm

Hey Tony….be honest. Did you have to Google how to spell her name? I surely did.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:05 pm

Could Quvenzhane Wallis be any cuter? Nope. No she could not.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20138:03 pm

I have chills watching this clip from “Les Misérables.” I know it probably has no chance of winning best picture, but I still can’t get over how incredible it is!

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20138:01 pm

Another Oscar for Disney. Like anyone was surprised.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:59 pm

Must agree with Tony here; “Paperman” is fantastic! Disney never can do wrong.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:58 pm

As much as I didn’t care about this category, I DID see “Paperman.” It was great.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:52 pm

Serious question: does Jack Nicholson go anywhere without sunglasses on?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:51 pm

Waltz won a Golden Globe for this category, so I can’t say I’m too surprised here.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:50 pm

And the Oscar goes to…Christoph Waltz! Well, I’m 0-1 right now.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:50 pm

Philip Seymour Hoffman is incredible too. And De Niro. And Arkin. This had to be a tough choice for the Academy.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:48 pm

Supporting Actor time. Let’s do this. I’m saying Tommy Lee Jones. Although Christoph Waltz is amazing, I have to go with Jones.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:47 pm

I am absolutely loving the incorporation of music thus far tonight. And come on….who DOESN’T love “Beauty and the Beast?”

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:43 pm

JGL for the win.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:39 pm

Fact: Everything is better if Channing Tatum is involved.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:38 pm

A song about breasts. NOW this is a MacFarlane show.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:36 pm

Captain Kirk, aka William Shatner, making an appearance? Well, okay.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:34 pm

Seth MacFarlane…I think I like you.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:31 pm

Tommy Lee Jones laughs. Point for MacFarlane.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:30 pm

And here…we…go.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:27 pm

I’m interested/excited for Seth MacFarlane as host. It’s something different and fresh.

Could be a hit or miss, though.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:25 pm

Queen Latifah. You are marvelous.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:24 pm

How crazy is it going to be if “Argo” wins Best Picture since Ben Affleck was snubbed in the Best Director category?

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20137:20 pm

The Huffington Post is currently reporting “Argo” has a 92.6% chance of winning Best Picture. I have to agree. It’s going to be between “Argo” and “Lincoln,” for sure.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:16 pm

Kelly Rowland is totally pulling the “Angela Jolie one leg out” trend this evening. I was hoping we had seen the last of that…

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:13 pm

Here’s to hoping Anne Hathaway changes before her big performance tonight! (Don’t worry Anne- I still love you.)

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20137:07 pm

ABC…you may want to get that echo figured out. I sense some technical problems! Sandra Bullock looks fab, by the way.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20136:58 pm

Oscars, “The Walking Dead,” AND the Blackhawks game? I’m going to be a busy man.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20136:57 pm

Daniel Day-Lewis could be wearing shorts and a tank-top, and he’d still be the coolest looking person there. Love that guy.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:55 pm

I just changed to ABC so I can follow along with Tony. I see Daniel Radcliffe again…loving it.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20136:55 pm

Harry Potter…er, Daniel Radcliffe makes an appearance.

Anthony Lyen Anthony Lyen February 24, 20136:52 pm

Okay, Alyssa. I made it. Sorry I’m late. I got a flat tire this weekend, so I was driving pretty carefully back to school.

SPEAKING of pretty, Chris Evans is looking fiiiiine. Plus, he brought his mom. What a nice guy.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:47 pm

I think Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are my favorite Hollywood couple. And they look dashing tonight, I must say.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:46 pm

So many people slam Adele, but I think she looks great! Truly demonstrates that you don’t have to be a size 2 to dress for the Oscars.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:44 pm

Nicole Kidman looks stunning. I’m not usually a fan of the metallic/glittery dresses, but she pulls it off.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:41 pm

Jennifer Aniston has the best color on tonight; I love the coral/red mix. I do agree with the critics, though, that she could have done more.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:34 pm

I didn’t comment on Charlize Theron a few minutes ago because I was so wrapped up in Anne, but that dress + her haircut could possibly be my favorite combination of the night.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:30 pm

Only an hour until show time!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:27 pm

How ironic is it that Anne Hathaway is wearing Prada after she starred in “The Devil Wears Prada” back in 2006?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:25 pm

So far, I don’t think there’s been a dress that has made me stop and do a double take. Was hoping it would be from J Law or Anne, but they didn’t really do it for me.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:24 pm

One Direction’s Harry Styles tweets that Jennifer Lawrence “needs to win an Oscar tonight.”

Do you think she can beat out Jessica Chastain and the other leading ladies up for Best Actress?

https://twitter.com/harry_styles/status/305834688113676288

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:21 pm

Really though…I’d love Anne Hathaway even if she was wearing a potato sack. I think we all would have appreciated some undergarments with that dress, however.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:19 pm

And there she is….I have to say, I am not feeling Anne Hathaway’s dress. At all.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:14 pm

I haven’t seen any horrible fashion disasters yet. We have about an hour and 15 minutes left…who will the culprit be this year?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:10 pm

Jennifer Hudson’s dress slightly reminds me of a mermaid, but I love it at the same time.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:09 pm

Is anyone else anxiously awaiting the arrival of Anne Hathaway?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:02 pm

Joseph Gorden-Levitt just revealed that he and Daniel Radcliffe will be joining Seth on stage tonight. I wonder if he’ll be pulling any of his moves from “Magic Mike?”

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20136:00 pm

Catherine Zeta-Jones looks like a giant bottle of gold sparkle nail polish. She’ll be singing alongside Jennifer Hudson and the “Les Misérables” cast.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:57 pm

Loving this tweet from Dean Richards of WGN.

“Jennifer Lawrence looks great. I wish she didn’t always seem so confused.”

Can’t say I disagree!

https://twitter.com/deanrichards/status/305827436128505856

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:55 pm

I’m defining Seacrest’s new hair as a mix between Zayn Malik (One Direction) and Bruno Mars.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:55 pm

I guess I never realized how short Ryan Seacrest is…Jennifer literally TOWERS over him. Even with his heightened hairdo.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:52 pm

Jennifer Lawrence’s dress looks like a giant cloud. It also somewhat resembles my grandmother’s bedspread, but either way she looks beautiful.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:52 pm

Amanda Seyfried (Les Misérables) won’t divulge any secrets about the cast’s performance tonight. I personally am predicting it to be the best part of the show.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:49 pm

Did I hear that Jennifer Lawrence just showed up? I am absolutely itching to see what she’s wearing. Think she’ll show up in a gown that’s in flames like Katniss did?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:47 pm

Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) just announced she’s wearing 2 million dollars worth of diamonds – INSANE.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:46 pm

And here’s Harry Potter himself! Daniel Radcliffe looking fabulous as usual.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:44 pm

I spy Amanda Seyfried! I take back what I said earlier; she looks stunning.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:40 pm

Do I hear that Daniel Radcliffe is on the carpet? Where are all my Harry Potter lovers at?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:36 pm

Reese Witherspoon looks beautiful in a blue and black Louis Vuitton. Another one who is looking great after recently having a baby!

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:34 pm

“I liked it because it was sparkly and fluffy,” -Quvenzhané Wallis on her choice of outfit this evening.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:33 pm

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan look lovely! Do I hear rumors that Tatum will be making an appearance on stage tonight?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:30 pm

I see Channing Tatum…I can hear the screams of females across the country.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:28 pm

I guess the fashion rules from the Grammys didn’t carry over for tonight? Samantha Barks’ dress looks just a bit revealing.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:25 pm

Amy Adams looks extremely awkward on camera…or is it just me?

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:23 pm

I LOVE the mani cam. Possibly my favorite part of this entire production.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:19 pm

Just got a glimpse of Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild)! I’m pretty sure this 9-year-old dresses better than I do.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:17 pm

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is the first big nominee to show up tonight. She looks gorgeous in a flesh colored/nude gown, despite her light skin and red hair.

Alyssa Cicero Alyssa Cicero February 24, 20135:13 pm

As much as I love “Les Misérables,” it’s still hard for me to take Amanda Seyfried seriously after her role in “Mean Girls.”
