Well folks it is about that time again, the 2007 Oscars! I don’t know about you all but personally I myself can not wait, thereÂ will beÂ so much to talk about come Oscar time, like who won what, who showed up looking an absolute H.A.M. and of course who won Best Dressed!! But all I know is myÂ peepsÂ Â Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamonds), Eddie Murphy and Jennifer HudsonÂ (Dreamgirls) better take home something or I’m going to be highly pissed, although some people didÂ not believe Eddie MurphyÂ should have been nominated in his category do to the factÂ of his erhmmÂ ”Norbit“Â movie being released RIGHT BEFORE OSCARS, concernedÂ that it might interfere with his outstanding cinematic role in the boardwayÂ play, turnedÂ movie,Â Dreamgirls.
