Chris Rock, 900 Old White Men and Some Ladies: It's Jezebel's Oscars Liveblog!

Illustration for article titled Chris Rock, 900 Old White Men and Some Ladies: Its Jezebels Oscars Liveblog!

But also, does this night even really matter anymore, culturally speaking (apart from host Chris Rock’s much-anticipated opening speech)? Crack some vino and join your investigative team of bloggers at Jezebel—plus some special guests from Gawker, Deadspin, and Gizmodo—and let’s see if we can parse any of this glamorous mess.
