1 Day Til Oscar... "No. 1 Fan"

Flashback March 25th, 1991

Which one of these guys do you think Kathy Bates wanted to lock up in her house and possibly hobble? If neither Tom nor Dustin are the correct answer who do you think Kathy was eyeing on Oscar night that year? Tell us in the comments.

Question #2: If you had to nurse one of this year's Oscar nominees back to health in your remote house in the woods, who would it be?

None. She only has eyes for Oscar

Spike Jonze, he's just so cute and sweet and cuddly and lovable.

1. prime Jeff Bridges
2. Cooper :)

Question #2: Thomas Newman, the composer.
The cabin would have to have a piano and other musical instruments. Then I could just listen while he got better. I thought of picking Alexander Desplat, but he seems kind of snippy and critical. (I'd be thinking, does he really need his feet to play the piano?) Newman looks very pleasant and easygoing, a real plus if you're stuck in a remote place with one person.

oh! Im a Fassy kind a guy & you swear I would NEVER use an hammer on him!

Most definitely her presenter, Daniel Day-Lewis :)

The only man my sister and I fight over, Bradley Cooper.

Kathy Bates' win for "Misery" is one of my favorite wins. From what I remember the odds had split it between Joanne Woodward and Anjelica Huston, both of whom were in multi-Oscar moninated and more Oscar friendly material than a "middle-aged", "fat", non-glamourous, non-famous character actress in a Stephen King horror movie. And yet she won. And gave a great, emotional speech.

...Maybe Fassy and Leo do have a chance after all.....

2) Karen O. She would be nothing but entertaining.

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRobert G

My captive is the rebel intellect Ethan Hawke.

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

I always thought she was a lesbian so I would guess Angelica Huston. (Yeah, I know shes married but then so was Tom).

Fassy. Hits all my buttons. Ginger, brooding, Irish, German.........talented. And if it turns out he is a lay there a love me type, I'm sure I can find something to play with.

Fassy and Bale and a cabin in the woods...

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

1. Tom Cruise. She needs humorless foil. Dustin would try to outsmart her too much.

2. Bruno Delbonnel and Roger Deakins, because I would just ask them about Joel and Ethan a lot. Of the actors? Amy Adams and then it will digress into us talking about the genius of Drop Dead Gorgeous and conspiring to get into being a lead in a movie musical. She can hang out with Bruno because both are so get nominated for Bright Eyes next year (Sorry, Roger).

*-I meant Big Eyes

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCMG

Question 1 : totally Dustin. She'd try Misery : Real Life Version on him

Question 2 : a tie between Blanchett and Lawrence ♡

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered Commentercraver

Fassy hands down!

March 1, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPedro

I would actually want to nurse James Caan back to health. I have a weird thing for James Caan that is only once he hit 50. I couldn't pick him c. The Godfather out of a lineup.

March 2, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

Mr. Ejiofor. Those eyes. Sigh.

March 2, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

Question 2: Miyazaki Hayao-sama ♡

March 2, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterajnrules

#1 Oscar
#2 Jennifer Lawrence, of course (along with her OscarS)

March 2, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdinasztie

#1 is Oscar of course.

#2 is a little harder but I'd say Lupita Nyong'o wins it for me. She'd be the best company of all the other ladies nominated. Or Meryl just because she'd have so many stories to tell me once she was conscious.
