More Sex, more SJP


Another chance for Sarah Jessica Parker to stir the Oscar pot?

This from Michael Lombardo, president of the HBO programming group, at the network's session today at the Television Critics Association tour, via Live Feed:

"There is enormous interest by Warner and New Line to do another 'Sex and the City' and we're trying to put that together now. There's absolute interest."

Meanwhile, the fervor of our readers continues to grow.

One of the latest to write in, Ann, has this to say:

"Let me put it this way -- I will be outraged if Sarah Jessica Parker is NOT nominated for an Oscar. Pitch perfect performance that stands up to the best actresses and believe me no one was more surprised than me coming out of the theater."

SJP fans, unite!

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.

  • 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!
