I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby yet - I just don't think I am ready yet. I think I am still too emotionally and spiritually wounded from when Clint Eastwood took his shirt off in Bridges over madison County. Saggy man breasts.......

This is the first year in a while that I've managed to see all 5 nominated movies before the show. I feel ready and fit to judge!


I have to see one movie that is nominated.

Forget the little gold statuette and all that guff about best supporting whatever. The big winners at tomorrow night's Oscar ceremony will walk away with cashmere pyjama bottoms, mink eyelashes and a coffee maker.

Presenters and performers at this year's Oscar ceremony will receive a "gift basket" - a bag of freebies - expected to have a value of around $150,000 (£78,500). It will include the latest ultra-thin mobile phone, a selection of free holidays, exclusive olive oil, a $1,500 voucher for dinner, and the coffee maker, which together with a toaster and kettle carries a price tag of $700.

This year there are even plans for an unofficial runners-up gift bag for all the nominees. Priced at around $38,000, it includes a voucher for a weekend in Las Vegas.

Are you ready?

I can't stand this woman...who wants to make a bet that her husband will be creeping in the background?

I must say, and perhaps this is bitchy, but I am always disgusted with the gift baskets that are given out at these awards shows.

I mean, the average celebrity presenting the awards has millions and millions of dollars.

For God's sake, why can't they donate that money to charity or something. Those people are the last people who need that stuff or that much money spent on them.

Best Animated Film - The Incredibles

(a tough choice with Shrek 2)

I will watch this tonight like I always do. When I was little I used to play dress up and pretend I was walking the red carpet.

I always watch. This year seems like it'll be a dull one, but at least there will be the clothes and a glimpse of the actors I like.

My money for Best Picture and Director is on The Aviator, as a Belated nod to Scorcese. Though I can see them splitting it and giving Best Picture to Eastwood, and Director to Scorcese. That has been the trend in the past few years.

I have no predictions for acting, although I would put money on Hilary Swank, she seems to have all the buzz. I like Cate Blanchett, so I will be rooting for her to get Best Supporting.

Definitely agree - what a joke...
