We’re Off to The Oscars!


Our finest dresses are laid out, our new stilettos are broken in, and our tape recorders are running on fresh batteries: Hollywood’s biggest weekend of the year is here!

Stars will walk the red carpet, Seth MacFarlane will do a song and dance, and we’ll fight street closures and fashion emergencies to rub elbows with this year’s best actors, writers, directors, and producers—first at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday and then at the Academy Awards on Sunday—to bring you insider scoop and backstage highlights.

We’ll be covering the events here at LAmag.com and reporting live on Twitter. Follow our main feed, @LA_mag, plus those of Editor-in-Chief Mary Melton, @MaryMeltonLA, Do editor Elina Shatkin, @ElinaShatkin, Shop editor Linda Immediato, @LAmagStyle, SEEN party reporter Kari Mozena, @KariMozena, and Buzz editor Nancy Miller, @Nmillions, for award show updates all weekend long.

Hooray for Hollywood—and happy viewing.
