Fatigue sets in


Still haven't had enough of Miley Cyrus or awards shows? Masochists.

Country Music TV announced today that the teen-pop-singer-actress-seat-belt-eschewing Miley and her father, "Achy Breaky Heart" and "Doc" purveyor Billy Ray, will host the CMT Music Awards in April.

They'll host. And sing a duet. And maybe Billy Ray will bust out some of his "Dancing With the Stars" "moves." And if that's not enough, both have new projects to plug -- she, an upcoming feature film that could easily veer into "Bratz: The Movie" territory, and he, a new record. Head hurting already.

Over at Current TV (no, we're not sure if we even have this channel -- but Al Gore hopes we do) they're launching an awards show today. As in, Year One. Apparently they haven't heard about the Oscar ratings.

The one-hour show centers around a tribute to Run D.M.C's Jam Master Jay and will feature a performance by the always (intentionally or not) entertaining Snoop Dogg. Sounds a lot better than that Academy voting tutorial by Sid Ganis last night. But then again, what doesn't?

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!
