Oscar producer Gil Cates has been adamant in recent interviews with the assurance that the Oscar telecast WILL take place, even if the WGA strike has not been resolved. Plans are being drawn up for the traditional show as well as an ‘alternative’ option, the details of which are not yet being disclosed. If the ‘alternative’ must occur, it won’t be much work to one-up the snorefest that was Mary Hart of “Entertainment Tonight” announcing the Golden Globe winners.
The DGA is still holed up in talks with the AMPTP. Originally, rumors pointed towards an announcement on Monday. Are the AMPTP trolls feasting on the warm flesh of DGA negotiators this very minute? Not likely. Moguls only eat panda babies.
