COMMENT DU JOUR
HONORARY OSCARS GO TO...

 "...and will these three great artists appear on the actual Oscars show?" - Rick G.

"To dig up some tabloid history (not that it was buried deep) for a footnote, Reynolds' "love rival" Elizabeth Taylor won the same humanitarian award in 1993. It sort of goes to show that everybody got theirs in that situation, except for Eddie Fisher." - Hayden W.

"Congrats to these three! They are all deserving of this honor but I STILL can't believe the Academy has pass up Doris Day AGAIN!" - Anthony

Was Ejiofor ineligible or something? Because, yikes.

"That'll Do" from Babe: Pig in the City is one of my favourite movie songs. Just lovely.

The people who voted for Whitaker here will be the loudest critics of the Academy when they deny Ejiofor at the Oscars.

This has been an interesting week for me with Olivia Wilde. I just saw her in Drinking Buddies and thought she was awesome in what I dreaded would be a flat dream girl role (the movie itself does a lot to debunk this as well). Her interview here is also super and smart. What is perhaps even more interesting is that when I did a search of Wilde just now, it wasn't this article, or references to it, that popped up, but rather analyses of her baby bump fashion choices. How perfect.
