What are the president's Oscar picks?
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Oscar buzz surrounding Sunday night's main event has even reached the White House.
During the daily White House briefing Friday, spokesman Tony Fratto was asked if the president had any Oscar picks.
Fratto said he did not know President Bush's preferences, but noted of the Best Picture nominees the president had seen "The Queen" and "Letters from Iwo Jima."
Bush also enjoyed "The last King of Scotland," of which Forrest Whitaker is up for Best Actor, Fratto said.
