Oscar, Mayer, and Wiener

This year's nominees have about as much buzz as Buzz Aldrin headlining this year's Coachella, aka Zzzzzzzzzzzzz to the nth degree deodorant. But I'll hold off on the major griping until Walk The Line walks away with anything (can you say 3rd rate La Bamba?). Lettuce juss hope that at this year's awards, even though the gays will have their day, that boobs will reign supreme!!!
