I am sure you've noticed I've been in Oscar mode, wondering what gadget-filled flicks will take home the golden statues this weekend, but what about awards for all the funny gadget moments in movies? Tech Digest is putting together a great faux Movie Gadget Oscars list that I couldn't help but share. They are asking for reader help, so if you feel compelled, you can share your picks.
- Most Gratuitous Gadget Product Placement: Note, Casino Royale is as much a shoe-in for this award as Mirren is for the Best Actress category in the real world.
- Most iPoddable Soundtrack: Which film had the best choons this year? Which considering Dreamgirls has three of the five Best Song nominations in the real Oscars, and the Crazy Frog bio-pic has yet to be released, should be an easy choice.
- Achievement in HD-worthy Explosions: This is the proper award for special effects. Meaty fireballs are the reason we bought our HD tellies. Well, that and the football. If someone contrives an enormous explosion in a football movie, they win this gong by default.
