Oscar Winners

The Departed leading the pack at the 79th Annual Academy Awards with four wins, including Best Picture and Best Director for Martin Scorsese, who proved that the sixth time can be the charm. The violent cops-and-gangsters drama also scored statuettes for Best Film Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay. 

Forest Whitaker and Helen Mirren each trying to cram just one more statuette into their ’07 trophy cases. Whitaker was named Best Actor for his turn as the late Ugandan despot Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland and Mirren was named Best Actress for her role as the reigning British monarch in The Queen

Jennifer Hudson making the Academy love her and winning Best Supporting Actress for her role as soulful-and-scorned backup singer Effie White in Dreamgirls

Alan Arkin winning Best Supporting Actor for his quirky turn as the randy, heroin-sniffing grandpa in Little Miss Sunshine, which also won Best Original Screenplay for first-time scribe Michael Arndt

Little Miss Sunshine dominating the Independent Spirit Awards Saturday with wins for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Alan Arkin, Best Director for Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and Best First Screenplay for Michael Arndt.

Beware of Personal Ads

Just wondering how many of you read personal ads off magazines, newspaper or the net and to an extend respond and post ads yourself.  Beware.  Was reading this article, “The Sex Ad was a Setup” today off Men.Style.com and I remembered one of drinking friends who happened to found his Glenn Close of his life (fatal attraction) off a personal ad.  Think I should share the article with you all.
