Oh, and in case it's not obvious, "Ratatouille" will win Best Animated Feature.

(Lamentably for someone who used to review movies, I haven't seen a single one of these films.)

I fondly remember the year I won a prize at someone's oscar party thanks to your picks.

I've seen Juno--that's it.

Carrot Top should definitely host next year. Think of the budget he would get for his props, not to mention the money he could invest in a few more plastic surgeries to prepare for the big night.

I think its a crime I've never hosted the Oscars! I'm young! Hip! Adorably crippled!


You should definitely see LA VIE EN ROSE. Excellent biopic, probably one of the best I've ever seen of a singer's story. Instead of a straight chronological structure, the film seamlessly moves into different time periods, withholding some important information until the very end. Marion Cotillard was magnificent. I could hardly believe the gorgeous young actress accepting her Oscar was the same person in the movie.
