Vince wins the pool because I am ineligible to collect prizes. However, I correctly predicted all eight major categories, plus cinematography, editing, art direction, costume design, visual effects and animated feature. I therefore declare myself the biggest movie fag of all. Rob - 14 Vince - 12 Darren - 11 Ellen - 11 Doug - 11 Big Daddy - 10 Hantman - 10 Full results in the comments...
Two for two
Derik, Darren, Vince, Ken, Doug, and myself all got the first two categories correct (Art Direction & Supporting Actor). Check the comments for a running total...
Wait...Chris Rock is black???
Chris Rock just openly dissed Jude Law, Tobey Maguire, Cuba Gooding, Colin Farrell, and himself all within a three minute span. Good shit. Hey wait! "Pootie Tang" was a good movie!
Best Picture guesses
Out of the twenty entries, nine predicted "Million Dollar Baby" to win the Best Picture Oscar, while five chose "The Aviator" and five chose "Ray". The underdog movie in this category is "Sideways", picked by only one (Jillian).
Oscars Pool 2K5
Well y'all, the Third Annual Iracane.com Oscar Pool is officially closed for entries. But due to popular demand (Big Daddy) I'm going to post all the results, starting with this handy-dandy Excel spreadsheet with all y'all's picks.

Amn't I smart?
You know whats weird? The phrase "they are not" can be shortened to "they're not" or "they aren't" while the phrase "I am not" can be shortened to "I'm not" but not "I amn't". From here on out, I reserve the right to use amn't in casual conversation.

Stuff Magazine Dive Bars Hall of Fame
I was perusing through Stuff Magazine's list of the top 13 dive bars in America and was shocked (shocked!) to see that I've been kicked out of one of them, the Hong Kong in Cambridge, Mass. Don't ask me why...I never really figured that out. (Thanks, Big Daddy for saving my life!)
Roger Ebert's Unwritten Rules of Oscar
As written by Jim Emerson, editor of that fat guy's website. So I guess a more apt title would be "Jim Emerson's Written Rules of Oscar". You really should check out www.rogerebert.com though...I think we take Mr. Ebert for granted. He is one of the great writers of our time. If only all movie critics could write with such simple yet elegant style...

Drugs is bad!
Patriots cornerback Ty Law gets arrested crossing the Canadian border with ecstasy pills in 2000; five years later, Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi suffers a stroke. Are these incidents related? I don't know. Probably.

Patriots fans beaten to pulp
Sure, I'm sad that another Boston team won a championship. But hearing that two Patriots fans at Penn State-Altoona were pummeled by five chicks makes me smile just a li'l bit.

There was a whole lotta shakin in the deathpool with the passing of German pugilist Max Schmeling. Brad had him, Glenn had him, but most notably, I had him and I vaulted into first place. Suckers!

The wussification of Super Bowl ads
The Eagles/Patriots better provide some quality action on Sunday because I hear the commercials are gonna suck. For example, this still from a Mastercard ad made me throw up in my mouth. The only redeeming thing would be if the Green Giant reached in throught the window, shelled Mr. Peanut, and ate his delcious innards.

Good thing nobody died when a corporate jet failed to takeoff from Teterboro Airport, crossed Route 46, and slammed into a warehouse today.
Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to feature this picture on the website. (Thanks, Cecil!)
