    Oscar Best Picture Poll 2010

    I think Hurt Locker will win (and I enjoyed it), but my favorite of the 5 of the 10 nominees I actually saw was District 9. James C will never get my $15 for his craptastic looking movie!

    What are you reading?

    I'm currently reading and enjoying "Hollywood Animal" by Joe Esterhas and as recommended by the Celeb Gossip Books thread (thanks Fan Chit Chat for the reading suggestions!). Prior to that I read and loved "A Moveable Feast" by my all time favorite Hemingway. Great book for these troubled times as he wrote it late in his life when he was flush with money and success and looks back longingly at a time when he was poor and struggling.

    Bitter - I hope you enjoy the Best of Everything - the precursor to Valley of the Dolls and Sex and the City. Really great book for it's time.I just read "the Careful use of Compliments" over the weekend (it's short and set in Edinburgh, where I w spent my weekend) by Alexander McCall Smith of the No. 1 Ladie's Dective Agency fame. Am starting "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" now and am completely sucked in even though I'm only about 50 pages into it.

    Sienna Miller

    Single, married, midgets with kids? LOL! Married midget with kids - wouldn't that be Tom Cruise? I don't think Sienna is his type tho...

    ^^they can keep making press releases about their engagement but it's not going to change the fact that no one cares!!!

    Movies You Have Walked Out On

    The Horse Whisperer! Too many hours of schlock to sit through. and I note that Scar Jo's acting has not improved. This topic should have a corrollary - horrible movies shown on long haul flights that could not be escaped. I've removed headphones and turned off the screen for: The Black Dahlia (thanking Scar Jo again), Agent Cody Banks (this was shown on an outbound and return cross country flight in first class!!! with no other options) and What a Girl Wants.

    Courteney Cox & David Arquette

    ^^it must be so hard to live in a world (Hollywood) where one feels it is necessary to do that to one's self. Skeletons are not sexy!

    Paul & Stella McCartney clan

    now now - it doesn't matter how much Heather gets. She's donating it all to charity anyway, remember?

    I agree with Bittermuch.

    What are you reading?

    I agree wholeheartedly. I really loved her first two but the pregnancy/child seem to have turned her (or her characters anyway), into annoying, selfish women. I recently read a collection of short stories that she wrote at different times in her life (sorry, cannot remember the name of the book) and enjoyed all of the ones she wrote pre-baby (you can tell not only because quality is higher, but the back of the book had her summary of each and when they were written). Still working my way through "Rebecca" - have been too busy to spend a lot of time reading lately, but I love it. If things at work were not so busy I think I'd be reading it in just one sitting to see how it ends!

    What are you reading?

    I've purchased this on your recommendation. Am just about to start "Rebecca" by Du Maurier, but I think I it will be next on my list. Bittermuch? - I read Memory Keeper's Daughter recently while on vacation and thought it was ok, nothing great. I found the beginning very upsetting as the plot hit very close to home (I have a DS cousin who was institutionalized at birth and not discussed in the family - I only found out about him in my mid-twenties and many of my cousins only found out when my uncle, his father, died last year). But overall I thought the author worked too hard at making the characters saintly despite their faults and it really got to me by the end.

    ^^ Freelancergirl - I read Getting Rid of Matthew - took me a few chapters to get into but it was pretty entertaining (though I thought the ending was a bit of a cop out). I'd recommend it as a good poolside read.

    What are you reading?

    I'm currently 1/2 way through Dedication (as you can see, I'm going very heavy on the chick lit as of late). It's excellent - by the authors of the Nanny Diaries but I think very different in tone. The flashbacks to high school alone make it worth the read (at least, bythe 1/2 way mark). Has anyone else read this one?

    What are you reading?

    I know - I could not stop thinking about it for days afterwards. On another note, I just returned from holiday where I devoured Freelancergirl's book and I highly recommend. Great story, great writing.

    Emma Watson

    Considering that the drinking age in the UK is 18, I don't find this particularly scandalous. They seem like a far better behaved lot that Hohan, Duff, etc. were at the same age.
