    I have a feeling Leo will grab it.. He was exceptional in Blood Diamond.. as a matter of fact, I also want Djimon Honsou to win.. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the screening for Blood Diamond and he is such a great person too.. Its going to be a very tough one.. so many good people nominated this year..

    If na for Donald own, na wetin fit am sweat: both of them dey craze..........

    But she picks on everybody and for no just cause, every week one wahala, a good example, the kelly Ripa hoopla was so unneccessary, she just seems to clamor for air time; it's almost desperate............

    I like bold and fearless comedians, but I hate when it becomes mean spirited, it just isnt funny to me at that point............

    Anyways, shebi we get date to watch the oscars together? no blow me off oh!

    why am I even contradicting myself, abi I said I would not watch, anyway for my honourable, exceptions are neccessary.

    @ highlighted, Clay Aiken was filling in for Regis on Regis and Kelly, and it seemed that Kelly was doing all the talking and obviously getting all the attention and camera time, apparently Clay couldnt get a word in, so he covered Kelly's mouth so he could talk and ask some of the questions, that enraged Kelly, and she ordered that he remove his hand saying " I dont know where those hands have been"

    Rosie O'Donnell carry the case for head on the View saying that Kelly Ripa made that statement cos Clay is gay, that, from a gay standpoint that that was what she discerned from the statement....................Kelly called into the show really upset at Rosie and told her not to make false homophobic accusations about her on tv, that the reason she said that was cos it was the flu season and she didnt want to catch anything.............the whole ish went on and on..................till I guess Rosie apologised or something

    That Rosie dey behave like ogbanje sometimes:1087: :1087: :1087:

    My dear I dunno what channel the Oscars is gonna be on o.......
    But the Kelly Ripa ish started when Clay Aiken was on the Regis & kelly show and Clay playfully put his hand over Kelly's mouth! Kelly too playfully pushed his hands away and that was it o! Only for Rosie to start blasting Kelly on The View the next day, calling Kelly "homophobic".........basically she was saying that Kelly wouldn't have reacted that way if it was Brad Pitt or George Clooney......boy was it messy.....Kelly had to call in and clear her name.......

    Rosie nah correct craze woman o!sweat: sweat: sweat:
