Lesnie Award Joke: WAS A JOKE….IT’S ALL OK NOW


We love Andrew, and so should you

Wow, never thought I’d get so many feathers russled in less than 4 hours. Well it seems a few folks were less that happy at our little ‘Andrew Lesnie Loses Oscar’ joke, so we’re taking that puppy down and giving everyone a big hug and saying ‘it’s all ok now’. Seriously though I do apologize for that faux pas, sometimes we don’t realize just who reads us, including the folks we talk about.

Well, let’s see what we can use to replace that one…

Christopher Lee and Ian McKellen form a rock band and begin tour!

Calling themselves ‘Three Men Minus A Man’ the band plans on touring all of south west New Jersey by the end of the summer! *cough*

Sorry Andrew/Mark/Jan/Fran/everyone, we love you, don’t be upset!

Lord Of The Pins

When I first called Paul Badali of Badali Jewelry with the idea of making a pin for the Oscar nominees, I never thought in my wildest dreams we’d see them wearing the pins live on television.

During our Oscar party Randy Cook walked up to me and apologized for not wearing his pin, saying that he was extremely nervous for the Oscars and forgot about it on his hotel dresser. Jan Blenkin, Peter Jackson’s personal assistant rushed up to me just before getting into her limo and begged me for a pin, I of course obliged (I hope you get yours soon Jan!). [More]
