    Upcoming: GreenCine Oscars Live Blog

    I’ve linked many times to GreenCine Daily, perhaps the best movie site on the web. This year, they’re hosting their first-ever live blog of the Academy Awards. They’ve invited a stellar gaggle of film bloggers to participate, including yours truly. Currently I’m receiving “special guest appearance” billing. Very Quinn Martin. I feel like Robert Lansing. Or John Saxon.

    That’s just an example of the kind of razor-sharp wit and timely references to expect on Sunday night. Open up a box of wine and join us, won’t you?

    The party is here.

    To put you in the right frame of mind, here’s a reprint of Oscar Night in Hollywood, a 1948 essay from The Atlantic by, wait for it, Raymond Chandler. A sample:

    Making a fine motion picture is like painting ‘The Laughing Cavalier’ in Macy’s basement, with a floorwalker to mix your colors for you.

    Ouch. Sunday night, kids. Fun and games to be had.

    That's perfect. I think we already have a Lee Meriwether. You can be our Clu Gulager. How's that? The live blog will be... In Color! Glad we'll have your company. Should be a fun group. I may even be able to take a bathroom break once in awhile and no one will miss me!
