While we're on the topic of Oscar travesties, how about that Best Animated Feature nod for Happy Feet? Don't get me wrong, I'm psyched that two movies with obvious environmental themes are up for big awards (can't wait for Ellen's climate-change jokes), but it would be nice if they were both good movies. Oh jeez. Just had a horrible thought. Are they going to make poor Ellen dance with an animated penguin on national TV?
