Oscars 2015
The Oscars is like the Super Bowl for films, but how long do they last? Oscars

Oscar night is one of the biggest award show evenings of the year, but it's also one of the longest. Between the red carpet coverage and questions about what celebrities are wearing and Oscar speeches and awards to people we've never heard of, film buffs plan a whole night around this event. Just like the Super Bowl, people host parties and make an evening, playing games, eating and making fun of what they are watching on tv. The official red carpet coverage on ABC starts at 7pm ET/4pm PT, with the gala starting at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm ET. The show is scheduled to end at 11:30pm ET/8:30pm PT. When you tabulate all those hours, you clock in at 4 hours and 30 minutes. That is if there are no overruns, which there will be, and if you don't watch the pre-pre-red carpet coverage. Enjoy!

Jennifer Lopez and Zoe Saldana have confirmed that they will be appearing during the telecast and will surely shine as they walk down the red carpet. J.Lo always has great fashion moments and we can't wait to see what she will surprise us with this year. Other presenters that have been confirm include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, Shirley MacLaine, Eddie Murphy, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Pratt, Octavia Spencer, John Travolta and Meryl Streep. We will also see up on the Dolby Theatre stage Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong'o, Jared Leto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Jones, Ansel Elgort, Kerry Washington, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, Liam Neeson and many more.

Without a doubt, the top Oscar of the night is Best Picture. Trying to figure out who will win this accolade has been difficult. The 8 movies that are nominated are: "American Sniper," "Birdman," "Boyhood," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "Selma," "The Theory Of Everything" and "Whiplash." Critics have been divided between Alejandro G. Iñarritús "Birdman" and Richard Linklater and Cathleen Sutherland's "Boyhood." The latter has edged out the former only by a small margin, but all will be revealed on Sunday night.
