We don't know what you're doing Oscar night (which is Sunday!), but we wouldn't think of spending it anywhere except on the couch with you.

Well, virtually speaking, anyway.

Our Oscar night live coverage will start here at 7:30 p.m. Eastern ahead of the 8:00 p.m. show. I'll be talking about the red carpet and the ceremony with Monkey See liveblog veteran Joe Reid — who's been here for the Oscars and the Emmys on several occasions — and Sarah Bunting. In addition to being a terrific writer, Sarah has been engaged of late in what she's dubbed the Oscars Death Race, in which she attempts to see every movie nominated in every category. Yes, even Tron: Legacy. Even The Wolfman. You can read all about the Death Race at her site, Tomato Nation. Joe Reid also talks about movies at his site, Low Resolution, where even a short tour will show you how diverse his tastes in film actually are.

It should be a great night, and we hope you'll join us.
