We went a little early with this week's regular video --songs from "Hope for Haiti Now," "Lost," some interesting classic-TV DVDs including an Orson Welles "King Lear," promotional items for "Life" and "Party Down" -- because I will be doing an extra video later Tuesday on the Oscars. I will also be posting a link to the nominees and some comments in a couple of hours when the nominees are announced. But while best picture and director may be a horse race, it already feels -- as I and others have said, based on prizes given to date -- that the four acting winners are locked in : Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Christoph Waltz and Mo'Nique. We shall see.
Watched, with half attention, "The Bachelor" last night. What a waste of two hours. Anyone who had been looking up to now knew who the final four would be and who was going home. Everything last night just made that clearer. At great length.
