In honor of tonight’s Academy Awards, I’ve decided that this week’s Pit will be Oscar themed! First off, don’t forget to check out the list of nominees for tonight’s show, and I hope that you have been enjoying Phasekitty’s reviews of all of the nominated flicks.

  • What films should take home which awards based on past years? Filmjerk makes their annual Oscar Handicap lists. (Filmjerk)
  • This year, The Dark Knight got snubbed for Best Picture and Best Director, but what are the best “Nerd” films that have gotten snubbed by the Academy in the past? (Topless Robot)
  • Tonight, either Slumdog Millionaire, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader, or The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will take home the Best Picture award. Before you make your prediction, you might want to check out this list of all the past winners. (Oscars)
  • Just because they have been nominated for an Oscar (and in some cases have won), doesn’t mean that these stars haven’t appeared in absolutely humiliating Japanese commercials. This is too funny! (Cracked)

Enjoy the show tonight!
