More Emmy 10s


Could the ever chipper and relentless Gold Derby force another ATAS disclosure? Or two? Or more?

This week will tell, probably, if the blog keeps digging away at the Emmy top 10 lists, as it's done in years past and continues to do now.

Its latest revelations, based on whatever arm-twisting methods it employs (read: asking nicely), involve the top 10 vote getters in the lead actress in a comedy category and supporting actor in a drama.

GD doesn't throw in this caveat, but we will, just for kicks. These lists could be subject to change. Unnamed sources and all.

Among the shockers: Three "Desperate Housewives" but no Teri Hatcher (gasp!). Sarah Silverman for her foul-mouthed Comedy Central show. Double gasp!

For the guys: "Lost's" Terry O'Quinn is out, Naveen Anders and Michael Emerson are in, as is Blair Underwood from "In Treatment" and two actors from first-year hit "Damages," both Ted Danson and Zeljko Ivanek.

Have to say, though, that we're even more iffy about this list, mainly because it goes to 11. What's up with that?

Sit tight to see if and how ATAS responds.

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!
