Let’s review my UNTOUCHED and UNEDITED Oscar predictions from Friday, shall we?

BEST DIRECTOR:

I hope it will be Julian Schnabel, “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” so I can hear Sean Young scream from the audience to “Get on with it,” but I have a feeling it will be Joel and Ethan Coen, “No Country for Old Men.” CORRECT!

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

Hollywood’s first famous transsexual, Tilda Swinton from “Michael Clayton. CORRECT!

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

Bad-ass Javier Bardem, “No Country for Old Men.” It’s his lucky quarter… CORRECT!

BEST ACTRESS:

Cate Blanchett, “Elizabeth: The Golden Age.” Sorry, Ellen Page; they don’t give Oscars to kids. INCORRECT!

BEST ACTOR:

George Clooney was right when he said that he couldn’t understand why he was even nominated because the Oscar will go to Daniel Day-Lewis, “There Will Be Blood.” CORRECT!

BEST PICTURE:

“No Country for Old Men” CORRECT!

5 out of 6 correctly predicted = 83% Correct! Hot damn. Now if only I put some jack down beforehand…

Christina Aguilera’s Boobies Are Fake

Christina Aguilera went on Ellen today and shared her joy over 5-week-old son Max, with whom she graces the cover of People, and talked about her new concert DVD and living in Ozzy Osbourne’s old home. The singer wore a low cut dress that accentuated her fake boobies, prompting Ellen to instantly ask, “Bluh, bluh, bluh… Are you nursing?”

Duh.

Silicone-flavored milk, anyone? Salty yet satisfying…

Hey, Kids! It’s Porn on ABC!

Guess a racy 2003 NYPD Blue scene featuring actress Charlotte Ross’ naked backside (or nude buttocks, as the Associated Press is saying) is going to cost ABC some money. The FCC has issued a $1.4 million fine against 52 ABC affiliates for Charlotte Ross’ nude buttocks shown on a 2003 broadcast of NYPD Blue.

The FCC is saying that the scene, where Charlotte Ross is surprised in the shower by a boy, showed “multiple, close-up views” of her “nude buttocks.”

The FCC found the nude shots on NYPD Blue to be indecent because “it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs — specifically an adult woman’s buttocks.”

Further, the FCC thought the scene with Charlotte Ross “dwelled” on her nudity and was “shocking and titillating.”

Here’s the Charlotte Ross nude butt scene from NYPD Blue:

So, what do you think? Too much ado about a derriere? And why does it take the FCC 5 years to pull down a fine against a network?

Ah, government…

SAG Loves The Sopranos & No Country for Old Men

LOS ANGELES: No Country for Old Men emerged as the Oscars favorite on Sunday by taking top honors for overall cast along with Javier Bardem’s supporting-actor prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the lone gathering of A-list stars in an awards season hobbled by the writers strike.

Past Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis of There Will Be Blood and Julie Christie of Away From Her won the lead-acting honors, also giving them a boost to win the same trophies at the Academy Awards on February 24. Day-Lewis dedicated his win to Heath Ledger, the 28-year-old Australian actor who was found dead in his Manhattan loft last week. “In Brokeback Mountain , he was unique, he was perfect,” said Day-Lewis, already an Oscar winner for My Left Foot . “That scene in the trailer at the end of the film is as moving as anything I think I’ve ever seen.”

Two weeks after the Golden Globes, the presence of blue-chip Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise, Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (in a flowing, is-she-or-isn’t-she dress that did little to quell twins rumours) reminded that SAGs may be the highlight of Hollywood’s film-honours season — if the writers strike undermines the Oscars.

But the show itself was free of labor talk, with only Christie addressing the matter openly among the winners. “It’s lovely to receive an award from your own union,” she said, “especially at a time when we’re being so forcefully reminded how important unions are.”
