What? No McLovin?


We understand that the Academy Awards are auspicious and storied and all, which is why we're especially keen on this trio, among the Oscar presenters announced this morning: Jonah Hill, Seth Rogan and Dwayne Johnson. The Rock! The Rock!!

Miley Cyrus slipped in somehow (or was it her poptart alter ego?), alongside all last year's best actor winners (Forest Whitaker, Helen Mirren, et al) and glam A-listers Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Hilary Swank and auteur/PSA star Martin Scorsese.

Jon Stewart is officially locked, bringing along what he's often described as his Harvard white guy writer posse, as are Bruce Vilanch and three other longtime Oscar vets. Awkward intros are assured!

If this still doesn't scratch your itch, check here for everything-about-Oscar (plus, two, TWO more video blogs from Sid Ganis).

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!
