Oscar Predictions

The Oscar nominations are out and I am sticking my neck out to guess who would win.

  1. Best Actor – Leonardo DiCaprio
  2. Best Supporting Actor – Mark Whalberg
  3. Best Supporting Actress – Adriana Barazza
  4. Best Animated Film – Cars
  5. Best Direction – United 93
  6. Film Editing – Babel
  7. Best Picture – The Departed

Other categories, I have no idea. Now wait and watch to see how many come true.

Foot-in-Mouth Awards

The Wired guys have done a 2006 Foot-in-Mouth Awards. Though the entire list is humorous and right up there, this particular entry, methinks should not have been there. I mean all this guy said was the truth, and nothing but the truth. CEOs in general are people who say twisted things in a more confusing matter. But Billy Boy believes in providing you the straight dope.

Let’s face it. We’re not changing the world. We’re building a product that helps people buy more crap — and watch porn.

~ Seagate CEO Bill Watkins

Personally, I think the one by Senator Stevens is the best on the list.
