Annie makes a prediction

According to MSN News,

Oscar presenters to be top secret until showtime
Jan. 14, 2009, 7:38 AM EST


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Guess who's coming to the Oscars this year?
Leslie Unger, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, says none of the superstar presenters will be announced before the February 22 telecast.
Awards shows, including the Academy Awards, typically tout celebrity presenters to generate interest. But Oscar producers Laurence Mark and Bill Condon are breaking tradition. They're hoping to lure TV viewers by keeping the star power a secret until showtime.
Unger said Wednesday: "There will be fantastic movie stars that appeal to a whole range of movie lovers and fans of our show. We're just not going to tell you who they all are."
The Oscars will air live from the Kodak Theatre.


I, little Annie Payne of Fruita, Colorado predict on this day, January 14th of 2009 that the presenters of the Acamdemy Awards are being kept secret because....President Obama will make an appearance at the Oscars to show his gratitude to Hollywood for their undying devotion and $upport. Can you imagine it?!

You heard it here. You heard it first.

  2. Standing ovation and cheering, maybe even chanting and the throwing of jewels and money. Certainly some bowing and scraping.

    I will make a prediction for you. I will spend some time on your blog to feel your essence and see what comes to me. You think I'm kidding.

    Manners Night is in a week. I let ya know.

  5. You are probably spot on. I can't wait for him to save us all.

  6. And the orchestra won't even try to cut him off as he blathers on ad nauseam, during which time a camera will zoom in on his bff Oprah, who will give a sly little 'I knew I (we?) could do it' wink to the audience.

  16. Well, that would just give me another reason not to watch the Oscars.

    Of course Hollywood is like a train wreck,sometimes it's hard to turn away.

  18. For fear of the flogging I'd get, I'll comment anonymously on this one, but....how ya'll gonna feel when things do get better under Obama? Not sayin' it will, but just sayin' he couldn't do much worse...the bar is set pretty low at this point. The poor guy is inheriting a big pile of mess.

  19. NCS is brilliant and Anonymous is a wee bit chicken. Just saying.

  20. Anon. is a chick who doesn't want her eyes pecked out by all the other chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anon is not a chicken chick, she's a smart chick.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Because she's right, or because has good sense to keep her secret identity?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't want Obama to fail. I don't want things to get worse. I love this country.
    I like anonymous commenters. I would rather someone voice their opinion anonymously than not at all.

  25. I did it again. I commented, then felt bad about what I said, so I deleted it.

    I am the chicken around here haha!

  26. Don't you think he'll be too busy saving the world to come? I'm just sayin'... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I will bet you are right. So the question is - to watch or not to watch??!! I am trying to put my support behind him, but it is still hard. I am not convinced that he has the people's best interests in mind. But that being said, I don't usually watch the Oscars - too boring - will his appearance make it more interesting or more boring? I guess we will have to see.

  28. Oh, you are goood! it all makes sense hollywoods sweetheart, ahh yes.

    i will remember i heard it here first.

    and i love the bicycle print shirt..thanks for thinking of me and sending it my way. i just may have to order me one.

  29. I can't read the words "President Obama" without wincing.

    BTW, your "one string of red lights at a time" got a hearty guffaw from me this morning.

    Smooch!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I totally want Obama to win. I want him to do great and awesome.

    If he does good our country will too. Country first.

    ;) High five Annie!

    Well, why not? I mean it's been a non-stop Obama-Rama pandemonium party, why not extend it to Oscar night as well.

    I don't watch Awards Shows, period, end of story, no matter if my all-star sexy man fantasy team lined up together in Conga line fashion on the red carpet wearing nothing but latch-hooked loincloths.

    Fantasy Men:Seth Rogen, David Duchovny, Bill Nye The Science Guy, Greg from The Wiggles, Jason Bateman, and Jake Weber.

  32. Nice.

    Personally I love the Oscars - but I hate surprises.

    I am conflicted.
