5:04 p.m. Regis is on the red carpet and I have chills. Oh George Clooney, you could wear a muumuu or even a onesie and you would still look fabulous. It is too bad that he probably won’t win. Daniel Day Lewis is going to take home the award tonight. Sorry Dad, I know you’re rooting for Georgie!
5:07 p.m. Shawn Robinson’s emerald dress is stunning. Funny story! We saw her on the red carpet rehearsing yesterday afternoon. She didn’t have a drop of make up one and she was wearing an old pair or Uggs. Today she looks completely different.
5:10 p.m. It might just be me but every time I see Laura Linney, I think of her crazy character in “The Truman Show.” I don’t really think she will win tonight but she still looks great.
5:17 p.m. Daniel Day Lewis looks great in a standard tuxedo. However his wife Rebecca Miller chose a daring dress with two red bow on the shoulders and black beading down the front.
5:18 p.m. Cameron Diaz looks great! She is in pale pink dress and manages to pull of her look effortlessly.
5:20 p.m. Regis has grabbed one from the crowd. He is with Sarah Golden who is an 84 year old “Bleacher Creature” who has come to the red carpet every year since 1986.
5:25 p.m. Ellen Page looks adorable. She just turned 21 a few days ago and answers all the questions Shaun Robinson asks her.
5:28 p.m. Two minutes to showtime and Regis is backstage with Bill Conti.
5:29 p.m.Regis is showing the viewers inside the Kodak Theater as the celebrities are being seated. When I was there last night, only cardboard people were in those seats. It is great to see the real thing! Nicole Kidman, Jack Nicholson, they are all front and center!
