Oscar Giveaway Starts Today!

Are you excited for the upcoming biggest night of the year in the entire world?? You know what I’m talking about….the Oscars! Yeah, we all know it’s a big stroke fest for Hollywood, but let’s face it, it’s fun to watch it and make fun of everyone…at least that’s what I do. I’m wondering if Angelina Jolie has eaten since the Golden Globes. Have you noticed how big her head looks sitting atop those bony shoulders and arms? If not, you’ll see Sunday. I’m glad Billy Crystal is hosting, he’s always a good time. Hollywood Boulevard is closed this entire week so they can set up all the crap for the Oscars including the stands and all the barriers to keep psychotic fans from getting too close to Hollywood royalty, which makes my walk to work twice as annoying.

It just so happens that my 100th post is coinciding with Oscar week and I decided to celebrate by having an Oscar giveaway! I know you won’t be able to sleep tonight just thinking about it. The prize is going to be a Hollywood/Oscar related prize package and it’s going to be a surprise! But you’ll like it, so get excited! I will post what the prize is once the winner is chosen. Jesus Christ, you’re probably hyperventilating right now…

Here are the rules:

Each day there will be two Oscar-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. At the end of the week a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Saturday 2/25. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood – the Contest on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons. We do NOT want minors winning a prize)

2. You have to live in the United States because I think shipping internationally is a hassle.

3. You have to answer two Oscar related questions as a comment on the blog.

4. It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen any of the nominated movies (most of them probably suck anyway)

5. No purchase necessary (not that there’s anything to buy… legally I have to say it)

Is that simple enough for you?


1. Who is your Oscar prediction for “Best Director?”

(nominees: Michale Hazanavicius for The Artist, Woody Allen for Midnight in Paris, Martin Scorcese for Hugo, Terrence Malick for The Tree of Life, Alexander Payne for The Descendants)

2. Why do you think Martin Scorsese doesn’t have his eyebrows trimmed down to a reasonable size?

every heard of tweezers Marty?

Have a great day! Be sure to leave your answers in the comment section!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    terrence mallick for tree of life, and he is trying to stay ahead of woody allen

  2. Julie H. says:

    Martin will win best director, and I think he is in a contest with The Donald who can have the
    strangest growth of hair on their head.

  3. The elder sister says:

    1. I think Scorcese will win, his name is most fun to say and all the presenters just want attention (since they usually aren’t nominated themselves) so they’ll pick him.

    2. I think the eyebrows are really a “man pet” similar to the purse dogs that Hollywood airheads carry around in their handbags. He just doesn’t carry a handbag! I just wonder when wooly caterpillars became popular pets……..Hollywood’s always one step ahead in the trends

  4. barskii says:

    Hollywood is a mystery to me,
    the buzz of make believe,
    to pretend for a career,
    youth and confusion, backward thinking with the Sun going down of you.
    Something Angelic sounding, like “The Tree of Life”
    just maybe?

  5. jwfong says:

    1) I think the Michale Hazanavicius for The Artist will win…
    2) Martin Scorcese doesn’t trim his eyebrows because he knows he is one of the most adorable old guys out there already, so it doesn’t even matter!

  6. Luke Hanbury says:

    I’m gonna go with Alexander Payne. And also, Scorsese MUST have a promotional tie-in deal with Swiffer. Pretty sure. “Now you TOO, can have Scorsese/Swiffer brows… just have your loved one grab you by the feet and push you around the kitchen floor…”

  7. Josephine says:

    Your walk to work will be more annoying but I bet there will be interesting fodder for your blog and/or routines.

    1. Martin Scorcese for Hugo

    2. I think he doesn’t trim them because he is afraid of them. 🙂

  8. Robynne says:

    1. No presenter will be bale to say “Hazanavicius”, no one likes people who marry their children, no one ever gives Martin Scorcese any Oscars and no one understands anything by Terrence Malik, so I’m betting Alexander Payne even though no one’s ever heard of him.

    2. They are holding his eyeglasses on.

  9. klpeach323 says:

    1. Hazanavicius. Because it’s a cool name and he made a brilliant silent film, today, in a society fueled by cutting-edge technology (i.e. 3-D).

    2. Martin doesn’t cut his eyebrows b/c i told Martin to not cut his eyebrows. 🙂

  10. mdonohue says:

    I’ll say Woody Allen,because he is really funny,and because he never shows up for any award,which is funnier because he;s playing his clarinet somewhere in Soho.hope I win,Love,Mom

  11. Kristen Himm says:

    I say Terrence Malick, because I recently bought a necklace called Tree of Life. I think Martin doesn’t trim his eyebrows because he is hiding a second set of eyes under them.

  12. Kris says:

    Marty Scorcese….he is just a cool, weird little man and everyone loves him, his films and his eyebrows, which leads me into the 2nd part of the award answer…the eyebrows….hmmm, because he has big, black glasses to hide them:)
    Wish I could be out there this week….it would be really exciting!!

  13. Hosanna says:

    #1.Hazanavicius….because it sounds like my name. And I heard it was great!
    #2. He doesn’t trim them because when he takes his glasses off he can’t see them, he’s far sighted ya know.

  14. Lisa Kidd says:

    Have any of these people seen Tree of Life? The weirdest suckiest biggest waste of a Saturday night I have ever spent.
    So 1. Woody Allen because he is just whacked enough
    2. The eyebrows are for sex tricks performed on his women. Everyone knows that.

  15. leigh ann says:

    I pick Martin Scorsese only cause he’s the only one I’ve heard of besides Woody, who creeps me out the with the whole ‘its so cool to marry your step daughter’ thing…. He’s got the brows hoping they pick him to appear in the long awaited sequel to Dune.
