It's Bucket Time, Again ...

This year's crop of Oscar nominees have been announced and Tinsel Town is a-buzz with air kissing and copious amounts of fawning. There are more tongues being shoved up more arses than you'd get in a half-decent adult movie. Newspaper, TV and Radio stations are being flooded by film critics, eager to chuck in their 10 pennies worth as to whom they believe will come out on top and walk away with a coveted statue.

This vomit-inducing clap-trap received an early shot in the arm last night with the Screen Actor Guild Awards. If you've been nominated for an Oscar and you win a Screen Actors Guild prize, then your Oscar acceptance speech is in the bag - so they say. Three British women up for an Oscar this year are Dame Judy Dench, Helen Mirren and Kate Winslet. Only one of our three ladies made an splash with the Screen Actors, Helen Mirren. She walked away with another statuette at last night's ceremony and, naturally, has been tipped to collect her Oscar on Februrary 25th.

On a personal note, I'm rather hoping that the grand old Dame of British acting, Judy Dench, finally gets American recognition and picks up a prize. At least she never got her tits out to further her career ... although she's acted with a few.
