An offshore gambling site, intertops.com, actually makes odds on the Razzies! Amazing! You can actually bet these odds if you care to. It is very close between Ben Affleck and Justin Guarini for the Worst Actor Razzie

Needless to say, Gigli is a runaway favorite to win Worst Picture at the Razzies. I am surprised that they are offering odds on this.

The next few links show the current odds at intertops.com for the Oscar races. These are not hypothetical. You can actually place a bet at these odds if you are so inclined. Unlike the United States casinos, British and offshore casinos will make odds on competitions where the results are known to someone before they are formally announced. The Best Supporting actress race is a four-way battle, with Renee Zellweger in the early lead.

Writer Joe Eszterhas says former superstar Sharon Stone paid him back in sex for creating her unforgettable icy blond character in 'Basic Instinct'"At the end of our night, which was really only just a few hours, I felt underpaid," he writes. Eszterhas is obviously not from the "gentlemen don't talk" school. He also says Stone has a "doughy" body. And that's only the beginning of the crazy stuff he talks about. A MUST read. After reading this, I'm actually going to get the book.

Three men who robbed a Dunkin' Donuts in snowy Northeast Baltimore early yesterday failed to cover their tracks, and that mistake resulted in their arrest after city police officers traced the footprints in the fresh snow right to their front door". Hell, they were lucky it took that long to get caught. Call me crazy, but if I were gearin' up for a crime spree, tryin' to avoid the police, I don't think I'd be robbin' donut shops.

Cheney, pope meet at the Vatican - Jan. 27, 2004. If you need a perfecta for this year's death pool, you could do worse than this picture. His holiness said "it is important that all nations seek international cooperation and work for peace", to which Cheney responded, "America loves peace. These are not the droids you seek", and the Pontiff nodded agreement. Or maybe he just nodded off to sleep. Excessive movie-watching can do that.

True or false? Captain Kangaroo was a WW2 hero, and Mr Rogers was a navy seal. HINT: the good Captain played middle-aged, but was only 28 when he began his run as El Capitan in 1955. Do the math.

Speaking of Bob Keeshan, here's the New York Times obituary for Captain Kangaroo. A thorough and evocative article that reminds one why the Times used to be so highly respected.

JoBlo.com's Oscar analysis. Like me, he was thrilled to see Depp on the list, Cold Mountain off. Like me, he was surprised to see Djimon Hounsou on the list, but he wanted Peter Sarsgard instead, while I leaned toward Robert Duvall.

Complete list of Oscar nominees. Big surprise: neither Cold Mountain nor director Anthony Minghella was nominated. Seabiscuit made the Best Picture nominees in its place, Fernando Meirelles (City of God) unexpectedly made the director list. Most pleasant surprise: Johnny Depp was nominated for his brilliant, eccentric performance as Captain Jack Sparrow. Least pleasant surprises: (1) Robert Duvall was not nominated for his performance in Open Range (2) Guest and Levy were not nominated for best original screenplay for A Mighty Wind.

Actor urges 'Cold Mountain' boycott: "Erik Todd Dellums, an African-American actor from Washington is calling on moviegoers to boycott 'Cold Mountain,' claiming it's a Civil War film that fails to address the issue of slavery." Not to mention that it's a remake of The English Patient in different costumes.

Michael Moore would like to apologize for referring to George W. Bush as a "deserter." "What I meant to say is that George W. Bush is a deserter, an election thief, a drunk driver, a WMD liar and a functional illiterate. And he poops his pants. In fact, he “shot a man in Reno just to watch him die."

Clark with a big lead in N.H. Primary. Yup, he has eight of Dixville's 15 votes. The story says, "Clark was on hand in Dixville at the Balsams hotel as the ballots were counted minutes after midnight." I want to know how you can make a living running a hotel in a town with 33 people. And I want to know why they call it Dixville. Wait. No I don't. The people in nearby Twatsville will get all jealous.
