I’m not surprised by an article I just read that says Eddie Murphy walked out of the Oscars after losing the Best Supporting Actor Award for Dreamgirls to Alan Arkin. I still remember watching Bill Murray trying to bolt after losing for Lost in Translation.
Honestly, is Eddie really that surprised? If you do a movie like Norbit right after doing one like Dreamgirls, I don’t think the Academy will look at that in a positive light. I saw this coming a mile away, and maybe it will alter Eddie Murphy’s film choices down the road….We’ll see.

So I’m getting excited about tonight’s latest episode of Heroes. It’s especially cool that we will finally learn more about HRG, and by the looks of the previews, there’s going to be some fire-action. I personally hope for some cool visual effects of Ted throwing fireballs around the Bennett household.
I’m thinking there will be a death tonight, but I don’t expect anyone major to be killed…Possibly Claire’s mom or brother…Maybe Ted also, but somehow I think he’ll stick around till at least the end of this season.
I’ve got a couple of links below, one explains more in general about HRG and what to expect, the other is spoilery (so I stopped reading it so I’m surprised), so consider yourselves warned.
It’s a good night of TV for me…I’ve got Battlestar, Heroes, 24, and Prison Break to tide me over for the evening….At least it won’t be as drawn out as last night’s Oscars….that got a little tedious by the end.

You know, I remember the day when I actually knew and/or had seen the movies that were up for Academy Awards…yeesh, even those three years in a row where Lord of the Rings films were nominated. I guess there are a few oddball categories that movies I’ve enjoyed could win, but I think the Academy should reconsider or make a category for blockbuster movies….there’s so many possibilities, plus it would bring in a more diverse audience. I’d totally watch if a movie like Superman Returns or Pirates of the Caribbean was up for a “Best Blockbuster” kind of award….they really do deserve the recognition.
We’ll see what happens tomorrow night!
