Our panelists predict the big surprise from Sunday night's Oscars.

PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now, Panel, what will everybody be talking about after the Oscars? Adam Felber?

ADAM FELBER: Natalie Portman will arrive, being carried inside a giant egg. And somehow, Charlie Sheen will be carried out in one.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Three women in the category of Best Actress will drop dead from fake smiling.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Roy Blount, Jr.?

ROY BLOUNT: The real Jesse Eisenberg will show up, guzzling Cristal champagne, snorting cocaine, canoodling two starlets at once, and, incidentally, naked and painted gold.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL, Host:

And if we see any of those things at the Oscars, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you so much, Carl Kasell. Thanks to Adam Felber, Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount, Jr. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal, we will see you next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
