Ain't No Etch-A-Sketch

This post is mainly for my friend Brandon.

But I want you all to know that I called it. The moment I stepped out of the theater, I said, "Ellen Page for Oscar." Finally, the Academy is taking comedy seriously...

Full List Of Nominations Here

The 80th Annual Academy Awards in on February 24th. Anybody down for a viewing party?

Edit (1/23/08) - After some research, I'm finding out there will most likely be no traditional ceremony due to the Writers' Strike. In lieu of fancy presentations and well-written jokes, the winners will be read aloud during a thirty (30) minute news conference. So... anybody down for a listening party?

How much of a bummer is it that we don't get the traditional glitz and glam? I won't miss it being four hours long, but I will miss the tradition of it all.

If I were in town, I'd totally be up for the party. But alas, here I am in California.

They could steal the idea the Webby awards used back in the day: five-word acceptance speech, which is still just enough to say something defamatory against the president. :-)
