Nice midriff


We most definitely want to party with this guy.

Too bad we weren't invited to the Echo Music Awards yesterday in Berlin. We're just taking a stab here, but we'll say a fine time was had by all, especially if this level of entertainment kept up for any portion of the evening. Are you learning anything here, Grammys? Anything at all?

The Britney doppelganger (yes, it sure is salt in the wound at this point, but it's just such a darn good spectacle) is German actor/comedian/TV host Oliver Pocher. He held court at the German music awards, which brought out the likes of Kylie Minogue and Alicia Keys and nominated a whole passel of American-bred artists, among them hissy-fit-throwing rap star Kanye West, Rihanna, the Beastie Boys and 50 Cent.

We'd like to tell you who won, but our rudimentary skills in German (OK, nonexistent) made it impossible to find that out on the Echo Music Awards site. Feel free to translate for us.

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!
