Oscar Watch: Newcomer nominations dominate, Good Luck Naomi Watts!

Just watched the Academy Award nimniations, (our) Naomi Watts is an Oscars best actress nominees for her portrayal in 21 Grams. It's a pity (our) Cate Blanchet was overlooked because she is great in everything she does but the theme of this years nominees has been newcomers. The biggest surprise was the nomination of 13 year old New Zealander Keisha Castle-Hughes for Whale Rider, the youngest best actress nominee to date - you go girl! Good luck to Naomi but my money is on Golden Globe winner Charlize Theron who played a serial killer Monster.

A pack of newcomers rose to the rank of Oscar nominee on Tuesday [Yahoo! News - Entertainment] More

J.K. Simmons Talks Spidey 2

For anyone that's read the comic books and seen Spidey 1, there is no doubt that J.K. Simmons is J. Jonah Jameson,

J.K. Simmons, who reprises the role of J. Jonah Jameson in the upcoming sequel film Spider-Man 2, told SCI FI Wire that he gets a bit more to do in the second movie based on Marvel Comics' most famous superhero. "A little more than the first one, I think," Simmons said in an interview. "At least we shot a little more. ... More fun wacky stuff in the office, and I actually even get to step out of the office a couple of times in this one. ... And there's at least one very fun twist involving my character."

United States Australian Rules Football League?

So I was watching the late night news and came across a story about Australia Week in LA in which I discovered that the national game of my country - Australian Rules Football - is taking off in the US. The even have their own league. Maybe it's national bias but I've always thought Aussie Rules was the best of the ball games combining speed and skill with a bit of rough and tumble. Clearly others agree.

In this for real?

Moscow's medical workers discovered a magnificent gift of a sixteen-year-old girl Natalya Demkina from Saransk. The girl possesses "dual vision". She is capable of discerning a person's internal organs without using X-ray or ultrasound.

Natasha has already disproved several medical diagnoses and has not made any mistakes. A series of medical experiments conducted in one of the clinics provide substantial and undeniable proofs of the girls' unique abilities." [Lockergnome Tech News Watch] More
