‘Newsweek’ gets it right

newsw.jpgThe current issue of Newsweek features its annual Oscars-nominations-pegged roundtable, which, this year, focuses on directors. The issue goes to press before the nominees are announced, which means that the magazine has to take guesses on whom to invite. Sometimes, like all of us, they miss (last year, for instance, Paul Giamatti was included in the actor round-table, even though the Academy snubbed him), but this year they’re five for five, and they have a goofy photo to prove it.

Interestingly, a Newsweek spokesperson told us that last year’s newsstand sales for the Oscars issue was “below average” for the magazine.
