We don't drink your milkshake


For someone who's usually so determinedly low-profile, Daniel Day-Lewis has considerably raised the stakes lately, and not just by getting himself nominated for an Oscar.

At the SAG awards, Day-Lewis dedicated his best actor statue to Heath Ledger, who'd died suddenly a few days prior. That timely move made for good ink, and lots of it.

And today, he took a few jabs at the Archbishop of Canterbury, Britain's top dog in the religious community. See what that's all about here.

He also showed up at the Berlin Film Festival dressed like a scarecrow/hobo, which will definitely stop some traffic.

Seeing as we're kind of on the subject of "There Will Be Blood" -- work with us here -- we have to thank Paramount Vantage for that promotional milkshake that everybody in town seemed to get except us. We're on a diet anyway (no we're not -- and we're bitter when we don't get our afternoon sugar fix).

Woe to you who denies us a frosty treat. We're now off to drown our sorrows in Pinkberry.

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!
