Tonight, as you would expect, I will be watching the Oscars. I will begin tweeting comments around 7 p.m. and post occasional compilations of the comments (with possible bonus material) here. (You can also follow the tweets as they happen on the left rail of this page.)

In anticipation of the show, I wrote several things for today's Beacon Journal which are available on, including a recap of the movies I am rooting for (an expansion of the quick video take below); a story about the Cleveland connections to the nominated "Moneyball," and my weekly DVD/Blu-ray column, which looks as "Hugo," arriving on video on Tuesday.
