Dear Gossips,

Three more sleeps until Oscar morning – you ready?!? Is your ballot ready? Our Annual Red Carpet Contest is open and a Chloe bag, $500 to spend at Homesense, and $500 worth of shoes at ALDO. Click here to enter if you haven’t already.

I’m in LA now to prepare for etalk at the Oscars. CTV is the official Canadian broadcaster of the show which means we have the #2 position on the red carpet (ahead of Ryan Seacrest, by the way, and just behind ABC, the US network) which is where Ben Mulroney will be interviewing the nominees when they arrive, and we also have a second spot – one of only two balcony locations – where celebrities make the turn on the carpet to head up the steps into the theatre. That’s where E! Canada’s Leah Miller and I will be reporting live on Sunday starting at 6pm ET with the fashion commentary.

While here, in addition to blogging, I’ll still be reporting regularly for etalk and co-hosting The Social via satellite. Because of the time difference though, it’ll be a tricky balance in the mornings. So I’m pre-writing some content in the middle of the night to roll out while I’m shooting in the morning and posting more in the afternoons before evening production meetings and rehearsals. Duana arrives tomorrow and, as we do every year, we’ll be working through the night on Sunday as Monday we’ll be putting up more than 40 articles recapping the event. It’s the Gossip Olympics. Sleep can wait!

Thank you for joining us during award season. We can’t wait to overthink and fight over every Oscar detail with you in the coming days. And don’t forget, it’s also Paris Fashion Week. So head over to LifeStyle to see the collections through the day.

Yours in gossip,
