After a year long wait, the Oscars are finally here! Annually presented by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences (AMPAS), the Academy Awards honor the greatest cinematic achievements in the past year in movies across the world. Being the oldest such award ceremony, the Academy Awards is also the most watched. With the glitterati of Hollywood as well as cinema stars from other countries participating and enjoying the occasion, this awards ceremony should scarcely be missed by movie buffs. The 82nd Academy Awards honoring outstanding achievements of the cinema of 2009 will be presented on the 7th of March, 2010 in the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood. The ceremony will start at 3PM ET (6PM PT).
The Awards ceremony was first started in 1929, on May 16 with around 270 people present in the audience. Since then it has blossomed into this gala event watched by millions worldwide. The movies that win or are even nominated proudly display their count in posters, DVD releases while actors, actresses and directors showcase their Oscars as trading chips for their next movie. This year’s nominees are varied with ten movies competing for the best film award. So who will it be?
If you are as excited as we are (and as lazy as we are), you would not like to move away from your computer correlating information and references as they come from the hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. You’d like to tweet and blog as the ceremony happens. For that, you need to watch the ceremony online. At Techie Buzz, we invite you to watch the live show right here on this page. With an embedded livestream we will take you straight to the Kodak Theatre where the awards will be presented. This is, of course, the closest thing to a regular teleporter. Enjoy the show right here on Techie Buzz and do tell us who will win the Oscars in the comments!
