Sunday's Oscar telecast -- we'll be live blogging it here

I will be live blogging on the Oscar telecast right here at ZonTV starting at 8 p.m. Sunday, so please stop by.

One of the most intriguing aspects of show involves the break with comedian-hosts in favor of actor Hugh Jackman.

I have a column in the Sunday Sun analyzing the confusion over what a TV awards show host should be. We know we are long past the days of great consensus comedians like Bob Hope and Johnny Carson, but the comedian-hosts expected to appeal to younger and more diverse audiences, like Chris Rock and Jon Stewart, have bombed at the Oscars.

So it will be fun to see how Jackman, a throwback to the Billy Crystal style of entertainment extravanganza ringmaster, will do as host of the show.

ZonTv will also be getting fashion posts from Sun reporter Jill Rosen during the telecast.
