Hopefully they will be live streaming it here:

Like last year, we will be having the second annual a2k Oscar Community Pool!

@tsarstepan,
i tend not to care much for oscar nominated or winning films, i do want to see The Kings Speech however, but that has more to do with my rather severe case of anglophilia than any other criteria

DJ? Is that affliction listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV)?

@tsarstepan,
Sorry for the dual video implants. Can't figure how to edit it down to one.

Anywho! I'm going to create the 2nd annual a2k Oscar prediction game sometime next week. Hopefully someone will be game to play this year.

@tsarstepan,
Will be creating the a2k Oscars contest thread this week.

Will anyone object to using the NYTimes.com balloting system to keep track of their votes?

I already voted... http://oscars.nytimes.com/ballot/3ab23341#
If you could see if my finished ballot is readable and this idea can work?
