Ozzy's tea party


Pinkies extended, china buffed, and crumpets ready. Just high tea with The Prince of Darkness.

We've seen Ozzy's domestic side (in his former fly-on-the-wall MTV series "The Osbournes," which won an Emmy), so it's no wonder the double Grammy winner also has a civilized one. No headless animals on that table!

Not sure what that French maid has to do with anything, but former Guns N' Roses/current Velvet Revolver rocker Slash (aka Riff Lord -- and yes, that is a formal title) is there with his buddy in advance of dubbing him a living legend at the Classic Rock and Roll Honour Awards today in London.

Last year's winner was Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame. His band is nominated this year, as are Kiss, Def Leppard, Whitesnake Foo Fighters, Metallica and AC/DC. More here.

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!
