8:39a.m. Anne is looking quite dapper - love the white jacket.
8:38 a.m. Music! Drama! Tom Sherak!
8:37 a.m. One minute to air, guys. The Academy is nothing if not punctual.
8:31 a.m. Oh. Just a sound check. Excuse my excitement.
8:30 a.m. Someone takes the stage! We're live people!
8:27 a.m. Anne Hathaway will be our mistress of ceremonies this morning, joining Academy President Tom Sherak to roll through 10 of the 24 categories. Hathaway and Sherak are only designated four to seven minutes to break down who's up for the Oscar, so this will go fast. Still no sign of Hathaway yet.
8:20 a.m.: We've got less than 20 minutes to go until the nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards are announced live. Thus far, it's still pretty dark on the set with a bunch of scraggly, hopefully caffeinated members of the press milling about. Keep in mind, it's just past 5 a.m. on the West coast. Stay tuned for more updates!
