The Weekend Desk Report

Special 2011 Oscar Preview Edition

With the price of oil pushing above $100 per barrel this week, it's possible Americans will soon pay almost as much for a gallon of gas as they did for a movie ticket in 1999. Which means, of course, that it's time to gamely prop up the brutal dictatorship that is Hollywood. Here are our picks for the major categories.

Best Supporting Actress
Our nation's recent history suggests when faced with a choice between two Fighters, go with the bloodier conflict.

Best Supporting Actor
Why give the award to a fake crackhead when Hollywood can produce the real thing?

Best Actress
If the past week has taught us anything, it's this: don't bet against the ballerina.

Best Actor
The field has been riddled with upsets and agitators, but at the end of the day no one has managed to topple the King.

Best Picture
The Social Network may not win this year, but we've got a feeling next year's sequel, The Hastily Retooled Search Algorithm, will dominate.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Good just to be nominated.
