Awards show watchers rejoice! All systems are still set to go with respect to Nikki Finke live-snarking the 86th annual Academy Awards.
It’s unclear at this point if the live-snarking will take place on Twitter or via NikkiFinke.com. Either way, it’s a welcome prospect.
Because despite Bill Murray‘s very solid indirect advice regarding acceptance speeches, chances are that – in the moment – winners like Cate Blanchett will espouse the tiresome thank-you drill. Which leaves only the opening monologue and dwindling comedy bits as the show lumbers on to hang our entertainment hats on.
