88th Academy Awards: Articles, live tweets, and a complete list of Oscar winners

Filed under: Festivals

88th Annual Academy Awards Coverage:

It's the end of February, which means it's Oscar time! While we weren't able to head down to Hollywood ourselves this year (we know that upsets you), we've still got a few great articles from the lead-up to this year's awards from Mike Walkey up above, and we'll be doing our best to live-tweet all the biggest (and weirdest and funniest) moments from tomorrow's show. So follow along below (or with the Twitter hashtag #oscarmonkeys) while you're watching the show. Or join in with your thoughts!

We're excited to see how Chris Rock is going to handle the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and with an unbelievably strange U.S. Presidential election in full swing, we're also curious to see how political some of the presenters or winners are going to get. And of course, there are the dresses, suits, celebrity pairings, and all that fun stuff -- but we're more interested in who comes out on top at the end of the night for Best Picture. (The safe money is on either The Revenant or The Big Short at this point, based on the early guild award winners, but there have been surprises before!)

Tune into ABC (or CTV in Canada) at 8:00E/5:00P for the 88th Academy Awards, and then come back here for the complete list of winners. Enjoy the show!
