Tonight brings the annual event where Hollywood humbly congratulates itself -- and all the little people -- in the Academy Awards.
What everyone's hoping for, of course, is at least one trainwreck moment.
James Franco and Anne Hathaway host, which will be...different. Good different or bad different, that remains to be seen.
Our Craig Hlavaty will be bravely liveblogging the events (it's brave because it means he has to watch the Oscars relatively sober, and no one should be forced to do that).
Check him out later today and tonight here and at his Twitter account, @craighlavaty.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
