This year's Oscar ceremony boasts several interesting aspects, including the battle royale between the blockbuster "Avatar" and the indie war film "The Hurt Locker" (a war of words that has resulted in the "Hurt Locker" producer being barred from the ceremony — oops!); the one-two punch of comic masters Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin as co-hosts; and the presence of no fewer than 10 Best Picture nominees, which were voted on using a 1-10 preferential ranking system that could result in a good old-fashioned Oscar night shocker (more on that in a minute).

It's a good thing we've got these features to distract us, because the races themselves offer little to no suspense.
