This Sunday: there will be milkshake-drinking jokes

Oscar statue

As we get closer to the Oscars on Sunday, the media seems to be converging on a few nominees as almost certain winners (Ebert, AP, Washington Post). Daniel Day-Lewis and the Coens look like sure things, but as the LA Times pointed out yesterday, we're living in a moment where Uno the Beagle, Herbie Hancock, the NY Giants, John McCain, and Barack Obama are all winners or presumed winners, so upsets should be expected.

You can document your bold, fearless predictions now, so you can gloat later.

Am I the only one who has nightmares about Daniel Day Lewis aiming a straw at me and ominously threatening to drink my milkshake?

I've noticed that I care a lot less about the Oscars this year than usual because the Democratic primary is so exciting. It's as if the American Idol finale were on at the same time as the Super Bowl.

I bet Obama's name is going to get thrown around so much at the Oscars, Wolf Blitzer will provide running commentary.
