I will be live blogging the updates from the 2014 Oscars giving the results of the winners for each award shown on Primetime. First of all though, did Lara Spencer annoy anyone else in the pre-show red carpet interviews? Her interviews were so hollow and irritating. Why is she even on there? Okay, rant over. On to the awards…
Love that Ellen is back to host the show!
