If we were looking for a sign that the Academy has their heads screwed on properly and will be indeed delivering a goose-egg to Monsieur Button tonight, this surely ain’t it. Jerry Lewis is getting an honourary Oscar tonight.

Officially, this Oscar is doled out to those whose “humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.” Unofficially, this award, like the honorary Oscar, can sometimes be a consolation prize for fading heavyweights who have never won in the regular race.

They give out Oscars because you’re a ‘fading heavyweight’ who has been a lifetime loser in Awardsville? Not to pessimistic on such a huge night, but we’ve got early stomach jitters that another lifetime loser who ages backwards may not be neglected as much as we’re hoping…
