The Zen Cupcake Oscar Contest

February 22, 2009

I’m late but what else is new? Ms Cupcake had a whirlwind week! Lots of good things happening in her world of cake and buttercream.

Yesterday, we were in Hollywood and got to check out the pre-Oscar/Academy Awards hoopla. We ran into Hugh Jackman, yes, THAT Hugh Jackman as he was entering the rear entrance of the Kodak Theatre. It was for a mere second, but what a memorable second!

Later that afternoon we saw members of our local southern California news team from Channel 7 entering the Oscar news tent to begin a newscast about the Oscars.

Anyhoo, we’ve decided to hold our own Oscar challenge. Check out the official Oscar website to watch trailers of the nominated films.

You are invited to our Red Carpet event. All you have to do is name who you think will take home the top Oscar awards. The contest is limited to all of our Mardi Gras Contest entrants. The one who correctly guesses the top Oscar winners will win Cupcake Prizes!

Here is a the official list of nominees.

Best Movie
Best Animated Film
Best Foreign Film
Best Director
Best Song
Best Actor
Best Actress
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress

In case of a tie, the earliest time stamped entry wins.

Good luck to everyone. We are running out to pick up two (2) dozen of our Red Carpet Cupcakes from Sprinkles for our own Oscar party this evening.

    I had to stop watching at 8pm, because Amazing Race takes precedence over Oscars!!! I loved Hugh Jakcman, and of course I thought Ben Stiller stole the show with his mocktation of Joaquin Phoenix!!! priceless!
