So what movies were more deserving of Oscar glory? Briggs lists Slither and Saw 3, which he acknowledges "was no Saw 2, but it was still great."
Fortunately for Briggs, he'll get a chance to share his aesthetic at the Bash, which begins at 1 p.m. at Capsule Event Center, 560 Santa Fe Drive, and runs through the Oscar ceremony. In addition to movie-tunes karaoke and assorted trivia and prediction contests, Briggs will screen cult faves Plan 9 From Outer Space, The Terror of Tiny Town and Barbarella. These movies bring together what he calls "the three B's: blood, breasts and beasts. And midgets, of course. Jane Fonda in the Lovemaking Tube? Are you kidding? How great is that?"
Admission to the Oscar Bash is $5 before 5 p.m., $15 after 5 p.m., and $19 for the whole shebang. For info, call 303-347-8252 or visit www.oscarbash.net.
