Question: Some of the early advertising I have seen for the Academy Awards says that the start time is 8/7c. Are we talking 8 pm eastern time? — Linda

Televisionary: Yep, 8 pm/ET, per usual, with a half-hour of arrivals followed by the ceremony itself, which starts at 8:30 pm. (Starting at 8 pm/PT would mean 11 pm/ET in the east, a late hour for even the hardiest film buff.)
