Oscar Tattoo: “Boss boss, de pain, de pain!”

Mr. Billy Crystal-Roarke: “You have been invited tonight as my special guests. Each of you is here for a reason, a reason so mysterious and private that not even TMZ knows about it yet. So take off that floppy hat, remove your sunglasses and get your popcorn ready.

Welcome to Oscar Fantasy Island!”

O.K., enough of that. Here is your fantasy challenge. Make your picks on the 10 categories below and fulfill your own personal fantasy (see game details):
1) Pick the winners of the six main categories. (1 point each)(You know what they are)
2) Will Billy Crystal say something in Yiddish? (Yes or No) (half credit given for Spanish)
3) Who will be the last person shown in the “In Memorium” segment? (double credit if you pick “Billy Crystal”)
4) Will the show go under or over 3 hours? (Under or Over) (no credit if you pick “Over”)
5) Will Crystal mention the “L.A. Clippers”? (Yes or No) (double credit if Crystal dunks a basketball after leaping over a car)
6) Will Jack Nicholson be in the audience and will Crystal mention both Jack and Kobe Bryant in the same statement? (Yes or No)
7) Will someone mention either the environment or Obama in their acceptance speech? (Yes or No) (triple credit if anyone mentions “Gore” or “Biden”)
8) Will Robin Williams appear more than once during the broadcast? (Yes or No)(double credit if he hugs someone on camera)
9) The Best Animated Movie will be? (I don’t know who the nominees are)
10) Who was the Hottest Babe Presenter? (My choice, so you have to guess what I’m thinking)

Game details: This is the honor system folks, so grab a pen and paper, and write down your picks. At the end of the night, do the math and notify me of your score by 5pm cst Tuesday. The highest scorer earns a guest spot on one of my future blogs (really) and a lifetime supply of Lazy Cakes (not really).

Oh and since this is my very first ever blog, your chances of winning are really, really good…but you can’t win, if you don’t play!
