Germany's cross-eyed opossum to pick Oscar winners

Post by Strawberry on Tue Feb 15, 2011 4:17 am

BERLIN — Heidi, Germany's beloved cross-eyed opossum, is taking a page from Paul the Octopus' playbook: the marsupial will attempt to pick this year's Oscar winners.

Leipzig Zoo Director Joerg Junghold told Germany's RTL television on Friday that Heidi will be appearing on the "Jimmy Kimmel Show" alongside the Oscars on Feb. 27.

He isn't revealing much about the show but says: "quite similar to Paul, it will be about tips." He says Heidi will be filmed in Germany over the next few days for the U.S. show.

Junghold says Heidi's appearance fee will be donated to an animal protection charity.

Paul correctly predicted the outcome of all seven German games at last year's World Cup plus the Spain-Netherlands final from an aquarium in Oberhausen. He died in October.
