St Patrick Day : Thousands Expected For Dublin Parade

Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world are expected to throng the streets of Dublin today for the annual St Patrick’s Day parade.

The two-hour spectacle will see street theatre troupes, artists, giant puppetry, dancers and marching bands from Ireland and further afield weave the 2.5km route across the capital.

The parade, made up of around 2,000 performers and over 900 marching band members, gets underway at noon from Parnell Square North and is the highlight of the capital’s six-day St Patrick’s weekend festival.

And in a special move to mark the GAA’s 125th anniversary, the four All-Ireland winning captains will be lining out as joint Grand Marshals.

Tyrone Football captain Brian Dooher, Kilkenny Hurling’s Henry Shefflin, Cork footballer Angela Walsh and Cathriona Foley of the Cork Camogie squad were selected to lead the massive march.

Rourke’s Wrestler, Winslet’s Nazi Guard Favored to Win Oscars

This year’s Oscar telecast will feature a new host (Hugh Jackman), a new format (cozier, shorter) and, almost certainly, a bunch of new winners.

None of the favorites for the five biggest individual awards on Feb. 22 has ever won an Oscar: Mickey Rourke (actor), Kate Winslet (actress), Heath Ledger (supporting actor), Penelope Cruz (supporting actress) and Danny Boyle (director). Winslet has been nominated six times, as many as the other four combined.

One other historical note: If Ledger wins, he’ll become only the second actor to win a posthumous Oscar. The first was Peter Finch, for 1976’s “Network.”

Here are my fearless, though not necessarily accurate, predictions:

Best Picture

Nominees: “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Frost/Nixon,” “Milk,” “The Reader,” “Slumdog Millionaire.”
