We know the Oscar is phallic.

But could you tone it down a little bit?

ADDED: Via Oscar Watch.

Oh my, that is too good.

This reminded me of a promotional photo sent out for the John Travolta movie, Broken Arrow. Is that a thermonuclear device in your pocket or are just happy to see me?

Austin Powers in Goldmember?

I'm sorry, I was too weak to resist that joke...

That image is screaming out for a little animated gif showing those hands working their way up and down that golden statuette.

(plus that image screams a few other things too, maybe they are anticipating a BIG night for Brokeback Mountain)

Sure, the human form is phallic.

Clearly a loser going all "All About Eve" with someone elses Little Gold Guy; winners have their "handler" to Oscar them off.

Any speculation as to who belongs to those well manicured man hands clutching that OSCAR(TM)?

(A little wrinkling, but not too much, large but not huge, good tux but not too crazy, I'm guessing a director, not an actor, Rob Marshall maybe?)

Why stop at analysis of the male shot?

I can see the possibility of unnatural acts in the female shot was well.

I was up at the MPAA museum once and they let us hold one. It was quite...exciting!

You were excited. Think how little Oscar felt.

"Think how little Oscar felt."

I think I heard him say, "I feel so...cheap."
