question of the day: What surprises are we gonna see at the Oscars?

It’s always an evening of surprises at the Oscars, of course, but I’m not talking about dark horses coming from behind to snag a little golden guy or some chick tripping over her gown in her four-inch heels as she climbs to the podium. I’m talking about this:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Oscar organizers on Monday warned nominees for the world’s top film awards to keep on their toes during a more than three-hour ceremony later this month that will break with tradition.

The producers “are going to take some risks, many risks, some bold,” Sid Ganis, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said at the annual luncheon given by the academy for Oscar nominees.

So take a guess: What surprises are we gonna see at the Oscars?

I’d love to see a guy dressed as Jesus pop his head out onto the stage ever time someone thanks him. Even better would be if the Big Dude himself descended from Heaven to laugh at Hugh Jackman’s jokes, but that really would be a surprise.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)

    I hope beyond hope that the surprise will be that all the stupid fluff is cut from the ceremony – the horrible dance routines, the god-awful ‘jokes’ the presenters are forced to say, etc.

    It won’t be any of those things, though. It’ll be idiotic crap that makes the ceremony even longer.

    Sigh.

    My guess: this year, they are going to dance the Pachanga!

    My real guess: Nothing. It will be as turgid and dull as ever.

    None because I won’t be watching beyond a few seconds here and there while I flip channels. Regardless, I’m sure whatever “surprised” they have planned will be ridiculous and fall flat.
