Winehouse winds up


It's not every day that you get an elbow in the head from a five-time Grammy winner.

James Gostelow, a 25-year-old Londoner, told BBC News he's not upset that Amy Winehouse punched him during her performance at this weekend's Glastonbury music fest. It was all a case of mistaken identity.

What were we just saying about the volatile Miss Winehouse?

Although the scuffle got the most attention, Winehouse and her flying limb weren't the only attractions. Jay-Z (pictured) caused a stir by being the first hip-hop artist to headline the event, and the Verve gave the festival's organizer a little dressing down from stage.

Yes, that was your outer voice. At any rate, fans seemed to dig it.

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!
