  1. I just realized the announcements will be around lunch time, perfect…. no staying up late required.

  2. Yes, 12:30 pm Eastern US (EDT). Pleased I won’t be up past my bedtime this year! 🙂

  3. Weeeell this is going to be way past my bedtime, BUT I’m traveling back to Asia from Europe and will be hella jetlagged this weekend… so maybe I’ll catch some ill-advised 3am Hugo action anyway.

    ETA huh, in fact Eastern European time is only 2.5 hours ahead so I can basically watch as part of a normal evening! Too bad it never seems to work out this well for Eurovision.

  4. This will be my first time actually watching the ceremony (for obvious reasons) – I’ve usually just followed along on twitter or a ustream chat. But here’s hoping we’ll all see Paul Weimer get to give a little acceptance speech!
