Oscar Winner
"Slumdog Millionaire" won the Academy Award for best picture last night and a total of 8 Oscars. The voters thought the film was about a laid off hedge fund manager.

Best Actress
Kate Winslet won the best actress award for her role in "The Reader" where she plays an illiterate, pedophile Nazi concentration camp guard. America just loves it when Hollywood sticks up for persecuted minorities.

Ledger Wins
Heath Ledger, who died last year of a drug overdose, won the Oscar for best supporting actor. He beat out Robert Downey Jr., who has to wonder just how much more drugs he needs to take to finally get a win.

U.S. Airways Drinks
U.S. Airways says it's going to reintroduce free drinks in coach. But to get those free drinks you're going to have to drink them straight from the Hudson River.

European Incentives
European carmakers are giving away lavish incentives to buy their vehicles. German automakers are giving out rebates, Italian manufacturers are slashing car loan rates, and the French car companies are giving every new buyer someone to help them push the car once it inevitably breaks down after two months.

New Catholic Leader
The Vatican is sending Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan to lead New York's archdiocese. Dolan is expected to demand the same $161 million deal former Milwaukee pitcher C.C. Sabathia got to come to the Yankees.
