Due To The Annoyance of Spam, Your Oscar Invitation Has Been Denied

Earlier today we wrote about the story that's circulating that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will boycott the Oscars, and then we read that Jesse Eisenberg picked up another Best Actor win from the National Society of Film Critics for playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Which leads us to wonder, will Mark Zuckerberg also boycott the Oscars, fearing the comparison of the film character to his real person, or will he show up at the awards in another awkward attempt to rehabilitate his reputation, similar to the way that he gave gobs of money to New Jersey's schools soon after the movie premiered? But considering how hated Facebook is by so many people, Zuckerberg might not even get an invitation to the famous ceremony.
But we secretly hope that Zuckerberg attends the Oscars. Because up until now, the Oscar show's biggest "nerd" moment of all time was James Cameron's "I'm the king of the world" declaration when he took the Best Picture Oscar for "Titanic", but imagine if Mark Zuckerberg took the stage in an ill-fitting tuxedo and white tennis shoes, with an auditorium of hopeful young starlets all staring at him wondering if they could stomach sleeping with him if it would mean it would give them a leg up in the industry. And then, of course, one of the producers from the movie would drag Zuckerberg to the microphone to say a few words, and we could have one of the greatest geek-out moments of all time. Oh, please, God, please!
