Here it is, Oscar day! Last year, when Barry and I were working on the HypeCast, we did some bits during the commercials and dropped them into that week's show. There was talk at the time that we should do a running commentary during the Oscars next year. Well, it's next year, and we're going to give it a shot for real.
We're going to be working with NowLive to stream the show online. I'm not sure exactly how the show will sound, so would say that you probably shouldn't expect the normal sound quality, but we'll just have to see.
Now, the subject says that we're doing two live shows. I'm still working through editing out last show (trust me, it'll be worth the wait), but we're going to be also finally recording our best of 2007 show. We've got Josh and Ethan's lists as well. Here's the kicker. We're also going to stream that show live as well as post it normally. There will also be text chat available, so we can have some interaction during both shows. Check back at the site around 5:30pm EST and I'll have a link to the show.
As for the Oscar show, we aren't going to cover the arrival special, or the Barbara Walters special. We probably will be mostly ignoring the red carpet portion before the big show, but we'll be starting our show between 8:15-8:30pm EST so we can do any predictions and be going for the start of the show. Please, join us! A good time should be had by all.
