Sonic, if you don't think there is a runner-up don't list one. If your prediction is right, it's worth three points.

The Academy would be very stupid not to acknowledge her. She's one of the ''club members'' who did ''good'' and now has a hand in one of the nominated films this year. Plus it would make for an Oscar moment for the worldwide audience. Maybe Billy Crystal will point her out and acknowledge her?


I believe that my local newspaper, Newsday, did a story about her not too long ago. I imagine other publications have done the same at some point. She has a fascinating story to tell, and a documentary short about her that's nominated. Her being at the Oscars, in a habit no less, will be good TV.
