This is probably the most work I got done all day

I already got my chattiness out of the way earlier today, so let's just go with the Wide, Wide World recappish-type entry as today's flashback and jump straight to four or five days' backlog of linkspam, of which I have only selected the cream:

OMG -- you hit 'send' to wrong person. That's right: "OMG" just appeared in a CNN headline. Or at least it did on Google Reader.

Lunchtime Quiz: Sherlock Holmes. Bitch, please. Easiest quiz I ever took.

The Bleak Ending of 'Watchmen' Changed? (like, the last two minutes, don't panic); Spike To Preview 'Watchmen'; Snyder’s 'Watchmen' Secrets.

Lucas Thrills Scream Awards Crowd But Batman Is The Big Winner; 'The Dark Knight' Dominates the Scream Awards; Sneak Peek at Upcoming Joker Comic; Batman 3 Rumors Downplayed; Don Your Clone Wars Helmet And Ride A Cyborg Dino to Fight Harvey Dent's Gross Face [Mega Toys] (wow... that is a really good likeness of Aaron Eckhart); Ledger's Joker To Get Best Supporting Oscar Nod? I would like to point out that there is a Best Actor psychopath precedent here--Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor for Silence of the Lambs with far less screen time (something like 20-25 minutes?). That said, it's really about the field you're playing in a given year, and it's also true that a performance memorable or substantial enough to compete in the Best Actor race could therefore steamroll the Supporting Actor race. (Which is why it's even more surprising that Anthony Hopkins won in that category, given that the character's screen time really made him more of a supporting actor, but it was a performance that completely dominated the movie. Which is exactly what I would say about Heath Ledger's Joker--just immediately iconic, and that's aside from the tragedy involved. And that's why I'm going to be very interested to see how this all shakes out.) And given the Mickey Rourke/Sean Penn/Frank Langella Best Actor talk at this point, Supporting Actor would be the smartest place to campaign. Does all this sound completely cold and mercenary? Yup. But there's a point where the Oscars have little to nothing to do with the merits of the movies themselves and everything to do with the way the campaigns appeal to a small, specific group of voters. You and I aren't voting for them, after all, and we're not trying to decide which was the best movie or performance this year; we're trying to predict what the Academy will vote for.

Zac Efron To Star In Pirates Of The Caribbean 4? Congratulations! You have figured out exactly what it would take to make sure I never, ever go see this movie. Like, it's either Zac Efron or Nicolas Cage. And I imagine that Zac Efron is less expensive, if all you're trying to do is drive me away.
