On February the 26th/27th (depending where you are) the 89th Academy Awards (Oscar) ceremony will be held and broadcast live into the world. While not everyone might agree about their true artistic and critical significance, it isn't deniable that they're one of the biggest events in and about one of the biggest and most famous movie industries in the world. This might thus be a great chance for a simultaneous live chat event during the ceremony, which could help to make users aware of the chat, and maybe even a few SE users aware of our site.

So like last year we are holding a corresponding live chat event on 2017-02-27 1:00 - 6:00 UTC for discussing anything Oscar.

The Oscars are over and so is the live chat event. Over the course of the event we had a whole of 11 different users chatting and I want to thank everyone for participating and hope you enjoyed it (along with the actual award show, of course).

In addition to that, Catija made a little survey for everyone to vote on their own favourites for various specific awards, the results of which can be viewed here.

I'm looking forward to next year's Academy Awards Chat.
