I’d Marry George Clooney

George Clooney Predicts No Oscar

Clooney knows he’s doomed at The Oscars come Sunday telling People Magazine:

“For me, it’s like being Hillary Clinton,” says the Michael Clayton star. “If it weren’t for Barack Obama, it would have been a very good year.” Adds Clooney: “I thought Daniel Day-Lewis had the best performance of the year.”

Dan Day-Lewis is already shining his Oscar as we speak. But Clooney would have given a far more entertaining speech I’m sure.

As for Clinton/Obama… well, March 4th is still in play. After that things might get a little clearer. But probably not.

Oscar Pool Suggestions… If You’re Interested

Many people enter an Oscar contest each year. Many fewer have any idea what they’re doing. So allow me to present to you the current Oscar odds (yeah, you can bet on Oscar… you can’t bet on damn near anything). This will tell you where picking an underdog is a good gamble versus where picking one is a big ol’ mistake. I’m only listing nine categories so this doesn’t go novella length. Here we go after the jump. Wheeee!

Simmons Strikes Back

Ok, not really. But Gene will be suing the hell out of some folks over this whole sex tape thing.

His website states:

You may have heard of seen garbage that has sprung up from my past. Rest assured the proper legal team is looking at all the ramifications and options.

Huh. A few things I’d love to point out:

1) That sure sounds like a confirmation to me.
2) Proper legal team? How many are there?
3) As far as options… just go ahead and sue. Why not? You’ve got to have a better legal team than most and you can just allege they made you feel bad.

Here’s the screenshot, doing a thumbnail because it’s big.

Gene Simmons Sex Tape Sue Time?

JT Set to Play Ball

Musician Justin Timberlake backstage at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards at The Palms on September 9, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Did anyone see Justin in Alpha Dog? I didn’t, but I liked him quite a bit on SNL. Still, I’m not sure if he’s got the right stuff for this:

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – Justin Timberlake will portray fictional Hooks player Carlton Garrett in the upcoming movie The Open Road.

He’s in the film with Jeff Bridges (Aka The Dude). I think he’s better with non-sporting dramatic work personally, but this is a nice blurb:

The 27-year-old pop star tried to meet with players of the Houston Astros’ Double-A team in Austin recently, but schedules didn’t align.

If you’re keeping score that would be the schedule of JT. I’m sure the team was available. Most likely Mr. Timberlake had to track down a super model instead. Not that I blame him.
