We hope you're getting ready for the annual Academy Award fest tomorrow night! Even if you haven't seen all the movies or don't care about awards, there's something special about this night. Are you an Avatar-ist or a Basterd, or simply Precious? Tune in Sunday night to find out how the Academy feels.
We're hoping for big -- and funny -- things from Oscar co-hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, who should bring a dose of intelligent absurdity to the proceedings. These guys are both as intellectually gifted as they are artistically able. We can only hope that their presence means the Oscar producers will be eliminating most of the lame unfunny quips and substituting something worthy of the hosting duo.
Be sure to visit Flaming Nose contributor Dean's wonderful movie blog Filmicablity for his Oscar picks. There's nobody who knows more about movies than Dean, and though you might not agree with all his picks, you know he's got excellent reasons for each one of them.
ABC has a jam-packed Oscar website with everything except a countdown widget -- how did they miss that one??? -- so give them a visit if you feel like exploring behind the scenes.
