Fruit salad


It's not quite Carmen Miranda, but we do have a bounty of fruit on display today -- raspberries and tomatoes, specifically, and yes, tomatoes really are fruit.

The Razzie nominations are in, and Head Razzberry John Wilson says he might be the only awards-giver in town who's not worried about the ongoing writers strike. Stars never show up to collect their "gold spray-painted $4.89 statuettes" anyway (with the notable exception of Halle Berry, being a brave good sport after that horrifying turn in "Catwoman" earned her a top Razzie).

Wilson said some stars outdid themselves this year by playing more than one crappy character in the same movie. Lilo is nominated twice (a historic moment!) for each of the characters she plays in "I Know Who Killed Me," which also topped the list with nine Razzie nods. Lilo was upstaged, though, by Eddie Murphy, who has garnered a record-setting five Razzie noms for all his various suckage in "Norbit."

The former Oscar nominee kept company with a few Oscar winners, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jon Voight and Diane Keaton, for their turns in "Daddy Day Camp," "Bratz" and "Because I Said So." Jon Voight was in "Bratz?!" How the mighty have fallen.

On to the fresh fruit. Rotten Tomatoes has released its "9th Annual Golden Tomato Awards" for the best reviewed movies of the year. It could be the only time, other than in the Christmas stockings we stuffed with the DVD, that "Hot Fuzz" gets the attention it deserves. Other notables: "Zodiac" and "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" in the thriller category, and the criminally overlooked "Bridge to Terabithia" in the family category. Check the full list, and boost the Netflix queue.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
