The most curious thing about this year's Oscars won't be if "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" upsets for Best Picture (nah, it doesn't have a shot). It'll be who will take home the gold in the Best Supporting Actress race.
OK it's the crack of dawn--like 8:25 a.m.--and we're up to watch the Oscar nominations announced live! I hope hope hope Brad Pitt is nominated for either "Benjamin Button" or "Burn After Reading," and not just because we invited him to Newsweek's Oscar roundtable, on stands Monday.
