You know why I made you the lead, because your voice has no personality.


Babel winning the big award was kind of a surprise. Ok, so my predictions for the Oscars would be: Dreamgirls, Letters From Iwo Jima, Babel, The Departed and The Queen. Volver could make a surprise appearance.

I am so unexcited about all of these. I think I need to see Iwo Jima and The Departed, though. I adored The Queen, but I think the writer and actress are the best highlights.


However much I can't STAND Sacha Baron Cohen, the bitch totally won me a surprise dinner cooked by my husband sometime this month. (The husband bet on Johnny Depp, who wasn't even there. Ouch).

And THEN my husband bet on Borat for best comedy, which is WEIRD, cause seriously, who didn't see Dreamgirls coming? But that's my choice of meat from Central Market, WON. (And really, like he's going to object to prime filet grilled outside).


My friend J has the audacity to call while Marty is picking up his Best Director. Jesus, the man has to take it where he can get it, it's not like the Academy Awards are going to be giving him one anytime soon. Stop calling me!

Marty is to me a real mensch. I love the guy and of course his films. The Academy needs to recognize his contributions to cinema if it's to retain any kind of legitimacy. Fat chance I know.

I may be going out on a limb here, but I say he gets it this year. It has become SUCH a pink elephant in the room that I honestly think Marty'll get it for Departed this year, even though Iwo Jima will get best pic. It'll just be fucking embarrassing for Clint to beat Marty AGAIN. Actually, he won't be getting it for Departed, he'll be getting it because everyone feels so damn bad he never gets it.
