Starting with mine. What the ef is up with the Academy? First, it disses Whoopi Goldberg by not including the Academy Award-winning former Oscar host in their past-hosts montage (sexist much, Camp Oscar?), then Brad Renfro gets no face time whatsoever for those stars who have passed in the previous year.
Oscar peeps who must have studied at the Eddie Murphy School of Good Samaritan Transvestite Whopper Excuses said there simply wasn’t space for Renfro to be included. Only A-list drug-addicted stars, à la Heath Ledger, need apply. Oh, merde, what crap-ola. Less stinky sassin’ follows:
“I like both, but I need to pay the rent.”
—Patricia Clarkson at the Independent Spirit Awards on whether she likes working in independent films or bigger budget flicks. Sell the awards you get from your indie movies on eBay? Both problems solved
“I’m having a baby, that’s about all I need to know!”
—Cate Blanchett, also at the Spirits, on whether she’s having a boy or a girl. ‘Course, Catey wouldn’t give a hoot about gender after playing Bob Dylan, we’re certain
—Sienna Miller, on the craziest thing she’s ever done for love. We would’ve answered “Jude Law,” but to each his own
"I don't know. I bought it in a store!"
—Aisha Tyler, on her fair-to-fussy outfit at the Spirit Awards. The lack of a stylist is what makes 'em independent

—Juno’s Ellen Page on what she did for her 21st birthday. Not like it matters, since Ell’s Canadian. She could have had that drink at 18, aye
—Red carpet crony of one Calista Flockhart, erstwhile date to über-crank-a-thon Harrison Ford, who we mentioned yesterday was being veddy cantankerous both on the carpet and inside the Kodak
Was it because Calista-doll’s having the guts to age in this town, something no dame over 29 dare do round these parts? Or is because Harry-baby didn’t partake, pre-Oscar presenting, in those wackier habits he’s so fond of (as he’s told me so, doll-babies and E! lawyer types, so lay the ef off, already!).
Hmmm. Tough call. We go with the latter, as Ford was riding high on the latest Indy Jones installment being done, and—let’s get real—he’s never really been known for taking the overly traveled plastic road in Tinseltown, now has he? Instead, get your knives out for the following, why doncha?

Love your column, but I just had to write to tell you that not all witches are bad...So your comment about witches being a potential problem for "idiot of the century" Britney Spears kinda wasn't appreciated by this particular real-life witch. We gotta break some stereotypes here. You should be able to sympathize with that, no?

I was wondering if Catherine Zeta-Jones is nice. I like her movies, but I've heard that she is a bitch. Is it true?
