ShowbizMonkeys.com is currently in Los Angeles putting together pre-show Oscar coverage, but we won't be at the actual Academy Awards Ceremony. But if you're like us, you'll be tuning into ABC or CTV to watch the biggest awards show in the world tonight -- and not just the ceremony itself, but all the Red Carpet coverage.
If you want to really get the inside scoop and be a part of the Academy Awards experience, the place to be is actually online. Oscar.com has partnered with Facebook this year for Oscar.com Live from the Red Carpet, which will give you the opportunity to interact with your favourite stars in real-time! Tonight, from 6-8pm EST (3-5pm PST), visit http://oscar.go.com/red-carpet/live-from-the-red-carpet and submit your questions to hosts Lisa Guerrero and Brett Chuckerman (who we actually spotting roaming the Red Carpet on Friday). And who knows, your question may be asked to George Clooney, Brad Pitt, or Quentin Tarantino!
As for the show itself, the place to go to prepare for your Oscar party is http://www.oscars.org/partykit. There, you can print out Academy Award ballots to predict the winners with your friends, tips for how to throw a great Oscar party, play-along games, and recipes. Essentially, all the work is already done for you -- all you have to do is invite your friends over and enjoy the show.
Be sure to check back soon to ShowbizMonkeys.com for coverage from Red Carpet at the Kodak Theatre by our special correspondent, Douglas!
