Oscars: Live blogging on the Academy Awards starts at 4 p.m. PST
We understand you're probably at an Oscar-viewing party tonight. But in case you're stuck watching the Oscars at home or at a party with some really lame guests, please join us as we offer live commentary on this year's Academy Awards ceremony. Los Angeles Times reporters Steven Zeitchik, Deborah Vankin and Patrick Kevin Day will be with you through the night, with Zeitchik on the scene at the Kodak Theatre.
Live blogging begins at 4 p.m. PST right here.
We're happy to be your Oscar buddies. And you're not even in an Oscar pool with us, so there'll be no weird pride issues or tension when your bad foreign language film pick totally costs you money.
