Woody Allen.

PJ Baio won the contest. assuming he didn't cheat (which, because he's mixed up with Alex and Marissa of RickyShore fame, I'm not sure is true).

PJ has requested one of the 'Witches of Eastwick' as his prize. He is deciding which one as we speak. One of you get your broomsticks ready!

Uh-- he chose-- Kate?? I hear 2 oythers crying- you'll get your turn, ladies!




Oh, those Witches, Kate.

The biggest kick I got out of this was how the lovely Kim McBride- she of a photo on her profile in a Woody Tee with his "Side Effects' book in her hand fame- got it WRONG. Too much Iggy Pop, Kim.

Here is Kim and Paul's responses--


Fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got Wood under my skin….and I knew, but I couldn’t imagine that the academy would do that….they hate him! Man. I hate losing, especially when I won and cancelled the winning out.

I’m surprised that Kim, dismissed the correct answer. Do I win one of the Witches of Eastwick for getting it right? Can I opt for Jack Nicholson? The answer is…. Woody Allen.


Woody's credentials are breath taking. I was pissed I didn't know the answer because I just bought 'Sleeper' and watched it 2 hrs before I went to the Vet home!

He is a recap of some of Woody's history. It is incrdibly impressive and if he didn't chase 9 year old girls, I'd like him more than I do.

Go out tonight and rent 'Sleeper' if you don't own it. It's still very funny 35 years later.

Academy Awards

Woody Allen has won three Academy Awards and been nominated a total of 21 times: fourteen as a screenwriter, six as a director, and one as an actor. He has more screenwriting Academy Award nominations than any other writer; all are in the "Best Original Screenplay" category. He is tied for fifth all-time with six Best Director nominations. His actors have regularly received both nominations and Academy Awards for their work in Allen films, particularly in the Best Supporting categories.

Annie Hall won four Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actress). The film received a fifth nomination, for Allen as Best Actor. Hannah and Her Sisters won three, for Best Screenplay and both Best Supporting Actor categories; it was nominated in four other categories, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Despite friendly recognition from the Academy, Allen has consistently refused to attend the ceremony or acknowledge his Oscar wins. He broke this rule twice. At the 2002 Oscars Allen made an unannounced appearance, making a plea for producers to continue filming their movies in New York City after the 9-11 attacks.[23] He was given a standing ovation before introducing a montage of movie clips featuring New York. The second time was at the 2007 Oscars.
