3-D Day on it's way . . . oh, and there'll be a Super Bowl, too:
I'm hearing that the 3-D glasses needed to watch the Super Bowl commercials of "Monsters vs. Aliens" and the 3-D episode the next night of NBC's "Chuck" are at some retailers other than those on the list given to me by Pepsico/Sobe LifeWater, including some spotted at the Giant Eagle at the Waterfront. I got a bunch at the Pepsi display immediately inside the Kmart at Penn Center, Greentree. And Rob Owen, after a few tries and misses, called the 800 number provided by the company and immediately got a person -- no recorded message -- who asked if he'd tried certain stores (none in the Pittsburgh area) and then politely took his address to send him as many glasses as he requested. That number is: 1-800-646-2904.

Saw "The Wrestler" tonight and was convinced I'd come home to find that Mickey Rourke had won a SAG Award. I'd seen all the other performances up for "best male actor" and his by far was the most demanding in every way. But instead, his fellow actors chose my second choice, Sean Penn in "Milk."
Something's screwy about Kate Winslet winning a supporting actor Actor award for "The Reader" and being nominated as a lead for the same role by the Academy Awards. It really was a lead role. A jubilant Streep won the SAG Award for "Doubt" -- and showed how surprised she was by pointing out, "Look, I didn't even buy a dress!" She was dressed rather casually in a bulky black wrap blouse and black trousers.
Best dressed in white (ivory or oyster and white's various other shades) was Taraji P. Henson, so elegant and youthful that she was almost unrecognizable from her role in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." A still blonde Kate Winslet looked like the true glamorous movie star she is in form-fitting royal blue (Photo credit: Getty Images).
I like that there wasn't a lot of black on this most recent of red carpets. Most women who didn't chose one of those previously shades of white went with rich colors, such as Christina Applegate in green, Eva Longoria in coral (with a colorful jeweled necklace) and Holly Hunter in hot pink.
