    Just thought I'd open up the discussion on the ad Apple will be showing tonight.

    Are we all watching it "Live" or do the people back East get it first?
    It's on @ 5:30pm Pacific.

    Looking forward to the show...looks like good competition for Best Picture and Best Actor. :)

    Well, its Live in the UK (about 12am) but its on BBC so no adverts!

    I bet its just an iMac advert.

    nothing yet...

    but I have this feeling it's just going to be the new iMac ad...

    they already showed that same Cadillac ad from the Super Bowl...

    maybe Apple will revolutionize the commercials during the Academy Awards like they did the super-bowl...

    They just ran it. Same "street"ad that they've been running.

    I still like it, though.

    Yeah, just the old iMac-Ad, with a price added at the end: "Starting at $1399"... Maybe they should have llet the price out...
    I really thought they'd make a Cinema Display HD ad, due to the HDTV resolution... well, who can afford it anyways?
    At least good Apple advertisement, now a couple more people may be interested...:D

    Dang...

    Was anyone else hoping for the "public announcement" of OS X? When do you think Apple is actually going to advertise OS X?

    I hope soon.

    The world needs to know about OS X.

    The Pixar short "For the Birds" won for Best Animated Short.
    Steve Jobs was thanked...

    Yep...saw that. That animated short was cool. Monsters Inc was great also. I liked it more than Shrek. To bad Shrek is getting all the publicity.
