Oscar chances?

As previously reported, ROTS has a shot at three Oscars. An interesting post on a USA Today blog discusses the odds and offers fans a opportunity to chime in.

And there’s a chance that the “Below the Line” event was co-ordinated by a friend of ours. :::cough:::Jessa:::cough:::

George Lucas still richer than you

Revenge of the Sith was last year’s top earner, making $380.3 million. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, War of the Worlds, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Wedding Crashers (one of these things is not like others) round out the top 5. Thus, it’s not too suprising that several Episode 3 stars are among the top draws – Christoper Lee, Ewan McGregor, and Samuel Jackson. Liam Neeson is there too – if you can’t be a Jedi, I guess voicing Jesus in lion form and smacking around Batman are good substitutes.

The year in blogs

According to Blogpulse, Revenge of the Sith was the second most blogged movie of the year. A New Hope also made it in at #24, but there are plenty of other familiar names.

Meanwhile, the Star Wars Last Supper painting we linked in May was one of the most blogged images.

Darth Vader didn’t make the ‘top people’ list, but Harry Potter did beat out President Bush, Pope John Paul II, and Britney Spears for the top spot.

Meanwhile, CJers are working on a best-of list of our own. We’ll be chat tonight (10:00pm Eastern, irc.holonet.org, #clubjade) if you’d care to join.
