The Clock Is Ticking!

C'mon, you guys!!! I've only had two entries. Just cuz you haven't seen these doesn't mean you can't play the Online Oscar Party Game. I haven't seen most of them either. Throw a dart, take a stab. Your guess is as good as anybody else's.

Here, again, are the nominees. Email your guesses to me at pennykarma at gmail before the show starts tomorrow, and if you are so daring, submit a pic of yourself in silly Red Carpet Attire too, just for fun.

Please play with me. I'm lonely. (sniffle)

sod 'em all.

They're efin' actors, one step below pop stars.

Why get excited about some git, meeting other gits, in a celebration of various other gits! Waste of cloth and red dye.

Oh and thanks for visiting my "dog egg" entry, things are on the up and up, I think/hope.

Boycott the Oscars by turning off the boob tube and doing some spectacular knitting.

Did you get my e-mail! I'll be watching. The streets were all closed on our way back from Hebrew school, and it really, really wants to rain (but probably won't).
