Ok, here’s the deal. The 95th installment of the Academy Awards is going to happen. It’s a live blog, so there will be minute-by-minute typing. Some people will win awards, and some won’t. Some speeches will be made. Maybe Austin Butler will drop the Elvis accent in time if he wins Best Actor. (Who knows?) Surprises will happen. So will the Monday discussion about snubs. Tears will be shed. Laughter will be had. We’ll type some thoughts about it, and hopefully, we’ll all be entertained.

For all the people pulling for Everything Everywhere All At Once to pull out the major categories to prove original stories hold weight. To the others who think Cate Blanchett’s song, “Apartment For Sale,” should have been nominated for Best Original Song. Even the people (like myself) who felt like Decision To Leave should have gotten more level, here’s another Oscars live blog for you.

10:33 p.m.: What a night for A24. What a night for Everything Everywhere All At Once.

10:31 p.m.: One last award. The granddaddy of them all – Best Picture.

10:28 p.m.: Michelle Yeoh does it.

10:26 p.m.: I’m even more torn on the Best Actress category. I want Michelle Yeoh to win, but it could swing Cate Blanchett.

10:23 p.m.: Brendon wins the day. So happy for him.

10:21 p.m.: Another big category – Best Actor.

10:18 p.m.: Here is The Daniels’ full speech.

10:12 p.m.: The Daniels picks up another big award for Best Director.

10:11 p.m.: Here we go with a big one. Best Director. Will we go with Spielberg or The Daniels?

10:08 p.m.: EEAAO is tied with All Quiet with four wins now, picking up Best Editing.

9:58 p.m.: What a flex. Singing a song off the top of the head while winning the award.

9:56 p.m.: As predicted and well deserved, ‘Naatu Naatu’ wins Original Song.

9:54 p.m.: Top Gun: Maverick wins for Best Sound.

9:44 p.m.: I love it. Women Talking wins for Best Adapted Screenplay. Sarah Pauley should have been nominated for Best Director.

9:40 p.m.: This is such a tough category. Good for The Daniels! Best Original Screenplay.

9:38 p.m.: Man, yeah, Oscar winner would crush on a profile.

9:32 p.m.: What a beautiful song to mark a tribute to Chadwick. Rihanna can do no wrong.

9:24 p.m.: Of course, Avatar: The Way of Water won for Visual Effects.

9:22 p.m.: Well, the bear tried to sabotage Elizabeth Banks. Is she ok, though?

9:12 p.m.: All Quiet On the Western Front takes Best Original Soundtrack in a shocker. I thought Babylon was going to take that one.

9:11 p.m.: Why didn’t they have Lydia Tar do this?

9:10 p.m.: Here’s the full stripped-down

performance of Lady Gaga’s ‘Hold My Hand.’

9:08 p.m.: All Quiet picks up its third Oscar. It might not be done, either.

8:57 p.m.: Oh, Lady Gaga is performing ‘Hold My Hand.’

8:56 p.m.: Well, interesting. We just let two people say full speeches.

8:53 p.m.: So far, we’ve played off two people.

8:50 p.m.: Jimmy sounds over it to the point where he made another slap joke.

8:34 p.m.: All Quiet On the Western Front picks up another Oscar for Best International Feature. Is It a darkhorse for Best Picture?

8:38 p.m.: By the way, Ruth Carter is the only Black woman to win two Oscar awards. We are at 95 of these things.

8:36 p.m.: ‘Naatu Naatu’ got to show off before it wins Best Original Song later.

8:31 p.m.: What a blessing it is to live to be 101. Condolences to Ruth for her mother, but glad she watched her win.

8:29 p.m.: Let’s go, Ruth Carter!

8:27 p.m.: Next up is Best Costume Designer. Wakanda Forever has to be the front-runner here.

8:26 p.m.: I hope they put the donkey up in first class.

8:19 p.m: Yup. Your winner is The Whale.

8:16 p.m.: Next up is Achievement For Hair and Makeup style. It’s between Elvis and The Whale.

8:08 p.m.: The EEAAO love continues with a performance of “This Is A Life.” Ah, they got the hot dog fingers out.

8:06 p.m.: Winner of Best Cinematography is All Quiet On the Western Front.

7:55 p.m.: Next up is Best Live Action Short. Winner is An Irish Goodbye.

7:52 p.m.: Our winner for Best Documentary is Navalny, Very good documentary if you haven’t seen it yet.

7:51 p.m.: Here’s the full speech from Ke.

7:49 p.m.: Up next, we got the award for Best Documentary.

7:37 p.m.: I, ok. Here’s the thing. Jamie Lee Curtis is a legend. But just like Judd Hirsch in The Fabelmans, I don’t know, man. Stephanie had a bigger role. I want Jamie to win an Oscar – just not for this particular role.

7:35 p.m.: Now we have the equally amazing Best Supporting Actress category. Honestly, anybody could win, and I’d be happy. Pulling for Stephanie and Angela, though.

7:34 p.m.: You heard the man. Keep your dreams alive.

7:31 p.m.: Best Supporting Actor goes to Ke Huy Quan for EEAAO, He did it. What a phenomenal comeback.

7:30 p.m.: Family. Art. It will tear you in two.

7:28 p.m.: Here we go with the Best Supporting Actor award. This is the first big EEAAO award of the night.

7:19: p.m.: Our first winner is Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio.

7:18 p.m.: In a bit of a change from the format, we are going for Best Animated Feature first.

7:15 p.m.: Pedro Pascal has The Last of Us finale tonight and is chilling at the Oscars.

7:14 p.m.: There it is – the Will Smith/Chris Rock joke.

7:11 p.m.: Nice Scientology slip.

7:07 p.m: Steven Speilberg wants to win like hell for best director.

7:05 p.m.: Surprised if we don’t get an honorary award for Nicole Kidman saving theaters.

7:03 p.m.: Tom Cruise, not present. Lady Gaga, present.
