OK, so you may not have walked away with an Academy Award, Anika. But look on the bright side: you DID manage to avoid time in the slammer!

How does she do it? Anika Noni Rose makes everything look effortless. She managed to film a ‘getting ready for the Oscars video’, get herself all done up, nearly got arrested and STILL walked away with a trophy on March 7. Remarkable!
Oscar Sunday wasn’t all glitz and glamour for the Princess and the Frog star. “We almost got thrown in jail filming!” the 37-year-old actress says in the video she shot for Wonderwall. “But I did leave with an Oscar!”

Come again? We thought that particular prize went to Crazy Heart’s “The Weary Kind” instead of Frog’s two selections, “Almost There” and “Down in New Orleans.”
Smiling, Anika holds up a chocolate statue – which to us sounds just as good as the real deal. At least you can eat this particular prize!
What do you think of Anika’s Oscar-day video?
