Chickenstars

Never mind “chickenhawks,” I’m tallying “chickenstars”–big-name Hollywood

types who are scared to show up for the Oscars. Definite chickenstars so

far (according to the NY Post)

include Will Smith, Cate Blanchett, Angelina Jolie, Peter Jackson (LOTR

director), and Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks! Say it ain’t so, Tom. Still

wavering: Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz, Renee Zellweger, Meryl Streep,

Nicole Kidman. Not afraid to run a microscopic risk in return for a zillion

dollars a year of our money: Halle Berry, who has said that she will wear a

costume that “reflects homage to the troops.” I forgive Halle for that

stupid weepy speech last time, I forgive her everything.
