Here’s proof that this Oscar season needs to start wrapping up pronto: Last night I had a dream that I missed the nominations announcement. For some reason I was at a bowling alley with a bunch of friends (and I haven’t gone bowling in ages) and I realized it was 11:30 am on Oscar day, three hours after the press conference. I frantically tried to search for the nominees on my Blackberry and discovered to my shock that three of the Best Supporting Actor nominees were actors voicing cartoon roles. (My dream didn’t tell me who they were, unfortunately…otherwise that would have been an amazing scoop!)

Anyone out there have any advice on how I can avoid losing my mind between now and March 7? A nice long walk in Central Park? A marathon of Jersey Shore episodes? All suggestions are welcome.
