The Oscars are Sunday… I’m Live Tweeting!

The closest I'll get to an Oscar...

The closest I’ll get to an Oscar…

The Oscars are my Super Bowl. Which means I’ll be glued to my TV screen on Sunday. First, to see all the dresses, celebrity air kisses, Ryan Seacrest puns and mani-cam bird flips on E! and then, of course, to see the big show itself. What I’m most excited about? Ellen, obvs, and Idina Menzel singing “Let It Go.” (I still haven’t seen the movie but it’s just a matter of time before I’m on the train, big time. Also, I love everything Idina.) And whatever Lupita Nyong’o wears. 

My Oscar viewing experience usually involves texting my mom and some friends with outraged comments about so-and-so’s dress or what’s-his-face’s awkward/hilarious/tearjerker speech. But this time instead of texting, I’ll be tweeting! If Jennifer Lawrence is self-deprecating, or Anne Hathaway riles her haters, or Matthew McConaughey says “all right, all right, all right”—all guarantees, really—I’ll be there with 140 characters on the subject. I hope you’ll all follow along and let me know what you’re thinking of the show, too.

I’m @rberch. Can’t wait for our viewing party!

Oh, and that pic above? That’s me at the Kodak Theatre in 2010, the morning after the ceremony. Definite life highlight.

Will you be tuning in? Have any Oscar watching rituals?

  1. Hope to be able to tweet, but my food ritual is so extensive that I probably won’t have a free hand all night. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t have a spread of finger food, dips and desserts…
    This is MY night along with the Golden Globes. I often dress for it in some type of lounge outfit that I could never wear any other time. So inappropriate to wear the silk pjs my mother-in-law brought back from China, but why not?
    I call and text my friends to do the “OMG, can you believe what she is wearing?” every so often and also comment to my puppies who at least pretend to be more interested than my husband. He is actually a good sport about it, but can’t sit for that long.
    Can’t wait to see JLaw and love Idina, too. She is in a play on Broadway that opens soon, so that will be something else to look forward to.
    Hoping your night of 140 characters delights you and your fans. Love your photo with the Oscar.
    Have fun!
