Ladies and gents, the MHP Oscars Open Thread!

Updated

The weekend, “MHP” took a look at two films nominated for Academy Awards tonight: yesterday, Best Picture contender “The Help” – and today, the documentary short “The Barber of Birmingham.” The Oscars start at 8:30pm ET tonight, and we want to hear what you think of these two films, as well as the others.

Consider this an open thread to not only talk about who looks good in which designer’s dress, but to continue the conversations Melissa began on the show over the weekend. We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Before it all begins, check out today’s segment on “The Barber of Birmingham,” embedded below – Melissa interviews the co-director, Robin Fryday, and Darren Armstrong, the grandson of the documentary’s subject, the late civil-rights “foot soldier” James Armstrong. Yesterday’s segment on “The Help” is embedded after the jump.

Enjoy the show, #nerdland!
