Hey everyone. I figured the board would eventually slump a little after the Oscars (well, after the post-Oscar analyzing/complaining that is as much part of the ritual as anything else) but I just wanted to let everyone know I'll be away from March 3rd to March 14th. I'm going to Iran. This has bee...

Steve Martin was WONDERFUL! Bring him back, please! And I don't even think he was that bad at all in 2003. Certainly that year he was more memorable than Billy Crystal, Ellen DeGeneres, and Jon Stewart this time around. Sabin's right, Stewart deserves another shot (he was great the year Brokeback l...

I'm sorry if someone else already noted this, but this is fourth straight year that the Golden Globe pick (for either Drama or Comedy) failed to predict the Best Picture Oscar winner (and the third year in a row that a Comedy Picture Globe winner -- once seen as a likely candidate -- failed to even...

Damien, all she has to do is play a real life person (preferably dead) in a mediocre biopic who "overcame adversity" and whose complex life has been reduced to a "triumph of the human spirit" story, and she'll win. By the way, Julie Christie? Also hot, man. Women over 30 -- I'm learning -- are amaz...

But Magilla, one shouldn't compare any serious artistic pursuit (and this is what great acting is) to a punch-the-clock JOB. Talk about a triumph of capitalist values! I would hope there are still some distinctions between art and commerce -- even in turbo-capitalist America. Edited By Akash on 120...

HA. Seriously. Her HBO Mini was way better than any of the recent movie portrayals. And since we're being bitchy about fashion here -- who the hell did Cate Blanchett's hair?

I totally agree Flipp. Not to mention second year in a row as the classiest person in the room. Love her. They should give her another Oscar soon. Just to get her on-stage again.

Perhaps this is a purely shallow reason, but I've been a legal voter since 1988; since then, we've had Bush, Clinton, Bush. The prospect of another 4 or 8 years of a Clinton, and the extreme vitriol that will inevitably result...I just don't want to endure it again. So I'm hoping it will be Barack....

Oh thank goodness, I thought I was alone!

If I had won that Oscar, I seriously would have made a speech about how I'd have prefered to have my Oscar "handed" to me by a cartoon bee.
