Name: Karen Han
Occupation: Erhu (Chinese two-stringed violin) Virtuoso
Hails from: Los Angeles
Why She’s A Babe: Flawless Skin. Elegant Lines. A killer musical talent. And then some.
It was hard to take our eyes off of Han during the broadcast of the Oscars, in which her husband Paul N.J. Ottosson won two consecutive awards for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing on The Hurt Locker. Now, winning is damn near everything to Asians, but when someone other than ourselves does the winning, it can be another story. In fact, one of the most of telling moments in any of our lives is watching someone else–particularly our partners–win.
See video of the acceptance speech:

Name: Miho Takagi
Age: 15 (please don’t perv out, pervs)
Occupation: Student, Olympic speed skater
Hails from: Japan
Why She’s A Babe: Though she hasn’t medaled in these Olympic games, Takagi catches our eye every time she’s on the ice. With a baby-sweet grin, bitchin’ lean muscles, and cute-as-hell pixie bob haircut, she always manages to look both athletic, slick and chic–even in a gold lamé racing suit.

Okay, so the Silversun Pickups were nominated for a Grammy (in the category of Best New Artist, which ultimately went to the Zac Brown Band) and didn’t win. That kinda sucks, unless you believe in the “Best New Artist Curse,” in which case you may have been rooting against these adorable kids the whole time.

This past weekend, the North American box office had its worst showing in five years. Bangkok Dangerous, starring Nic Cage, came in first, though it’s considered a bomb, earning $7.8 million over three days. The film is directed by twin brothers Danny and the awesomely-named Oxide Pang (The Eye), the team who made the 1999 original.
The last film to come in at number one but earn less was Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star. Don’t remember that comedy gem? Yeah, well, that’s the idea. On a brighter note, I think I finally finally am beginning to understand the adage, “Winning Isn’t Everything.”
