Live-Blogging The Oscars!

Well, it's here, my friends!

It is easily the most glamorous night of the year filled with elegant (and sometimes questionable) gowns, rented jewels and long acceptance speeches.

We've watched the Oscars obsessively ever since we were little and dreamed of a life of movies. Let’s be real, who hasn't already written and practiced their own academy acceptance speech?

The Academy Awards is a a celebration of talent. Every single person there has affected art and the participation in art in its viewers all around the world. Film is a medium of art that strikes people in a way that no other does. Film tells stories. It tells stories to let us know about new things and expose us to new worlds. It tells stories that shock and amuse us. It tells stories to let us know that we’re not alone. That we’re all human, no matter how different we may be.

And that, my friends, is something to celebrate.

To celebrate tonight, we want to have a glamorous party (filled with sweatpants and wine) with you! 


We will be live-blogging the event RIGHT HERE, continually updating this post with our live thoughts and start a conversation with you all. So, keep refreshing that page, lovely readers.

Kaitlyn- Jennifer Lawrence. One of my favorite people wearing my favorite designer.   And plus, all she wants is food, so she's a girl after my own heart.
