Last One in the Oscar Pool is a Rotten Egg
For what it's worth...
My tentative predictions are here.
Pop Culture under the microscope and overanalyzed
If you haven't been keeping up with The Oscar Grouch, this is definitely the week to find out what you've been missing.
1. The Cider House Rules
1. Schindler’s List
Speaking of FOX Reality, you know you're on to something special when somebody decides to rip you off.
I was going to post something to this effect, but those clever bastards over at TVGasm beat me to it.
I'm not a big fan of The Office, but I am a big fan of cross-series continuity, so I got a giddy little bit of joy at the reference to buying a paper company in Slough the other night on Lost. J.J. Abrams has become the new king of subtle inter-series conectivity, what with this and the Driveshaft song playing in an episode of Alias (I can't remember if there's ever been a connection to Felicity on Alias, aside from overlapping actors).
In the tradition of "Before They Were 'Stars'":
To Whom It May Concern,
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Frieda Pha. I am 19 years of age and a student at University of the Pacific. Throughout my high school years to this day, I have tried so hard to become discovered as a Pop / R&B singer. I feel that I have a singing ability that can touch and reach others. God gave me the gift of singing for a reason and that is to help others and to somehow touch their lives through music. That is my journey and my passion in life. I am young and I do not know where to start or what direction to take, but I would really want to get there. Please help me in any way you can.
I really hope to hear from you.
Elizabeth F. Pha
And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that this is not just "Something That Happened." This cannot be "One of those things..." This, please, cannot be that. And for what I would like to say, I can't. This Was Not Just A Matter Of Chance. Ohhhh. These strange things happen all the time.
Can somebody please explain to me why when there was a two-to-two tie tonight on American Idol for Elizabeth Pha (who was dressed like a Chesapeake Bay Seafood House), she made it through to Hollywood, yet when J.P. Molfetta again received a two-to-two tie, he did not?
