Join Seattle Times movie critic Moira Macdonald for the Oscars red carpet and the live awards ceremony.

Update: And this year’s Oscars are a wrap, with “Birdman” taking the top honors of best picture, director, and original screenplay. I survived five hours of live chat; here’s the rewind, below.

It’s just about that time . . . Join me here at 4 p.m. for the red carpet — or, if you just want to chat up the ceremony itself, drop by at 5:30 p.m.

Songs will be sung! Haiku will be created! Gowns will be dished! Nobody will guess the short films correctly!

Either “Boyhood” or “Birdman” will win Best Picture — maybe?

Michael Keaton or Eddie Redmayne will win Best Actor — right?

Julianne Moore will get to make the speech she’s been practicing for years — for sure?

And Neil Patrick Harris will, perhaps, remind us that he is indeed a movie guy, though we last saw him naked and dead in bed in “Gone Girl.” (And WHY didn’t “Gone Girl” get a Best Picture nod? The Academy works in mysterious ways.)

Join me and we’ll chat.
