It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
No, not Christmas again. I’m talking Oscar season! The Super Bowl for movie fans. And thankfully the writer’s strike is over, so it will go on, with Jon Stewart at the helm. If you remember, I was a big fan of his when he first did it 2 years ago (though I am still pushing for Conan to host… OH! Bring the Conan/Stewart/Colbert feud to the Oscars!)
So… like I always do, every year… Oscar Picks!
