• Tomorrow (Feb. 13) is the deadline to enter material to compete for the One show Awards, which reward excellence in advertising and design. In addition to Gold, Silver and Bronze Pencil Awards, this year the first-ever Green Pencil Award will hail the best nonprofit/public service advertising that promotes the environment. One_show_green_pencil With an all-star panel of notable industry professionals, The One Show will take place on May 6 in New York at Jazz at Lincoln Center. A separate ceremony for interactive work will be held on May 8 at Terminal 5 in New York. Deadline for that competition is Feb. 27. ONE SHOW.

Mickey Rourke told a British tabloid that he's rooting for Sean Penn to beat him at the Oscars: "Sean Penn is a good friend of mine. When I was down and out, he got hold of me and told me exactly what to do and not to do. I owe him so much that I hope he wins the award." LONDON DAILY EXPRESS

• Many soap fans wonder: Why did "One Life to Live" diva Robin Strasser remove herself from consideration for a Daytime Emmy this year? "I don’t think the current Emmy system encourages team effort," she roars to Nelson Branco of TV Guide Canada. "I remember a moment in time when the dynamic of a cast got to change for at least two months and we nominated the best on our show. NATAS really lost me when they allowed judging to occur at home." THE SUDS REPORT

• Don't expect to see Meryl Streep in flashy designer garb at the Oscars. When she recently won best actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, she admitted to the audience, "I didn't even buy a dress!" as she showed off her plain black pants suit ensemble. Now she believes that Spartan fashion is her lucky charm. "I'll never buy a dress again!" she told World Entertainment News Network. WENN

• Luckily, these Oscars bloggers aren't having their smackdown on a high wire! David Carr of the New York Times takes on Kris Tapley of InContention.com for not liking "Man on Wire." CARPETBAGGER

• Getting ready for Stephen Frears' "Cheri," starring Michelle Pfeiffer, to enter the next Oscars derby, Nathaniel Rogers has been catching up on his Colette books, which he is, literally, swooning over. FILM EXPERIENCE

Oh Meryl! You deserve to win the OSCARS, with a new dress or not! You are simply amazing in Doubt!

What the hell are you doing, Mickey? I mean, it's cool and all that you're humble and Sean Penn helped you out during the rough spots, but this is YOUR YEAR!

That Carpetbagger-Tapley blog entry is hardly a smackdown; more like a tut-tut-down. For a real smackdown of an Oscar blogger, see Jeffrey Wells vs. the "cool kid" journalists over his non-panel participation at the recent Oxford Film Festival.
