Tonight, starting at the very first glimpse of Ryan Seacrest's sparkling veneers, I will be live-blogging the Oscars for The Huffington Post. I'll link to it as soon as I start.
UPDATE: Live blog is up here.
In the meantime, can we discuss the fact that Oscar is holding a pointy sword directly over his balls?
Academy Awards legend has it that a woman named Margaret Herrick, who was then working as the Academy's film librarian, commented back in 1928 that the gold statuette looked just like her Uncle Oscar. "Oh, that Oscar," she said. "He's a nudist with alopecia; looks just like Yul Brynner, only without ears. Always standing on film canisters, covering his penis with a sword... when I last visited him in the asylum he was making keychains out of gimp!"
I still totally want one, though.
