i just caught this story over at selectism. band of outsiders sent a list of select nominees (alexander payne, woody allen, george clooney, brad pitt, jonah hill, and gary oldman) a gift package containing a fortune cookie and a clip-on bow tie. the inside reads “he who wears band of outsiders bow tie wins important award.” i wonder if any of these gentlemen will take a chance with it. what a great idea from band of outsiders. to see some well-dressed nominees from previous oscars click here.
