Oscars 2010: Live tweeting the U.S./Ireland Alliance party

By Liz Kelly

Our own Jen Chaney is on the ground in Los Angeles to cover this weekend's Oscar events. First stop, tonight's U.S./Ireland Alliance Oscar Wilde: Honoring The Irish in Film pre-Academy Awards party.

The highlight of tonight's fest: Tom Cruise presents a special award to writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams -- who you may recognize as "Lost's" co-creator, director of 2009's "Star Trek" reboot or as director of the upcoming "Mission: Impossible IV." The action kicks off at 6:30 p.m. PT (9:30 for us East Coasters).

Update: A transcript of last night's tweet fest follows. -- 8:56 a.m. ET, Friday, March 5
