AND THE WINNER IS: (opening the envelope...)

drum roll.....

"AND THE OSCAR FOR THE BEST FIRST NAME FOR THE BRODY CHARACTER BLOOM IN RIAN JOHNSON'S THE BROTHERS BLOOM GOES TO......"

[and at this point the host stops in mid-sentence and says: "Since we received so many good and interesting and fitting names for the Brody character, and since only one person on Earth knows the real first name of Adrien's character in the movie, since HE wrote the script and directed the movie, we will let Director Johnson let the cat out of the bag whenever he wishes to dish.....and after the post-Oscars party if fine with us....")

THANKS to everyone for submitting a name and LONG LIVE

THE BROTHERS BLOOM

You are right, William Goss. That is what is known in the trade as an ATOMIC TYPO. Who knew? Fixed now, sort of. See original post, above two posts up...

A blogger in Santa Barbara has an interesting take here:

"The names of the title characters are assigned rather strangely. Whereas the elder Bloom Brother gets a regular first name, the younger one is only addressed as Bloom. Unless his name is Bloom Bloom — which wouldn’t be inappropriate, given the handful of ways the film reminded me of Pushing Daisies — his first name is simply never uttered and not listed in the credits. It’s not unheard of that this would be the case. (For example, the “I” in Withnail and I is never named in the film.) But if Bloom is actually Adrien Brody’s character’s first name, then this film’s brother-brother pair would be the only one besides the Mario Bros. to have a first name arbitrarily applied to both in the way a last name usually would. An online contest was apparently held to give the younger Bloom a first name — or at least so says this article, which, curiously, was written by someone named Dan Bloom — but there’s no indication of what the results of that contest were."

AND THAT BLOGGER ABOVE ALSO NOTED: AND HE MIGHT NOT BE CORRECT, AS MAXFROST IS TO POST TOMORROW IN CORRECTING THE COMMENT:

''Speaking of names, the pairing of the names Bloom and Penelope made me think of the marrieds in Joyce’s Ulysses, even if the female half of that pair is actually named Molly. The book’s final chapter — Molly’s chapter, arguably — is titled “Penelope.”''

No, it's not.
