Ladies and Gentleman, it comes to announce the event that you all have come to expect: The 89th Academy Awards TWEETED BY MYSELF AND SOME FRIENDS, while being watched on a couch in one of said friends’ houses, arguing over why the winner/loser of each award was more deserving and also forgetting to tweet during the commercial breaks so it backlogs over the total 1.6 hours of actual event time!
This morning’s announcement of the list of nominees for this years’ event is the perfect time to board the Oscar Hype-Train to television land. Join us this year on Twitter as we commentate, make fun of and celebrate the highs and lows of this overly and unnecessarily ceremony for people doing the jobs they were paid thousands and thousands of dollars to do well in the first place. No, I’m not bitter.
While this year’s host Jimmy Kimmel is no fan favourite of any of us participating in this event, it could always, only be better than the disaster that was Anne Hathaway and James Franco’s hosting of the 2011 awards. So we look forward to that, at least. (UPDATE: They made a trailer!)
Use the hashtag: #OscarsRLive on Twitter or Facebook to follow/search our tweets or tweet along with us (yes, it’s the same hashtag as last year, but I’d like to start simplifying this event I’ve been doing for HOLY CRAP – 6 YEARS!) or tweet us individually – we’ll post our links below. Also, head over to @goldknightblog for your copy of the nomination list to fill out!
See you on the 26th!
