Let's start with Starpulse:
My full article on what happened in the theatre is here along with a fun interview with Tom Sherak, President of the Academy. He was pretty forthcoming about the diversity of this year's nominees and the new rules set in place to keep the playing field as level as possible during the voting period.

For Red Carpet Report:
Here is my Oscar insider thoughts on yesterday morning's nominations:
And I get to pick legendary film critic, Leonard Maltin's brain about the surprises and omissions on this year's list.
Finally, I will be doing Oscar updates each week between now and February 26th for a bunch of media outlets. Here is my Nominations update for Forces of Geek in front of the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. (I told you it was a busy day!)
I am also interested in hearing your thoughts on the nominations. I was pleasantly surprised because, for once, the awards don't seem predetermined to a specific film or actor. I feel that almost every category is up for grabs. Now, it's up to Billy Crystal and show producers, Brian Grazer and Don Mischer, to make this show entertaining.
