Snappy Answers to Stupid Headlines for February 27, 2011

They don't cover the Oscars like we did in my day (and read the good news below about what has happened to the place where Hollywood goes when it is now longer their day):

Hanks, Affleck, some guy, Damon

Yes, March 21, 1999. The last Oscars of an old century. I'm actually assigned to cover them for the LA Times, and as I'm posing for a picture with Tom Hanks, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon come up behind him and the three of them pull me over the "security" hedges and suddenly a thousand flashbulbs pop. Walter Pidgeon did not appear. The bastards broke my cummerbund.

Now about The Motion Picture Home and how it isn't going to close after all (and how Worst Persons helped just a tiny bit). Vanity Fair's piece is here.
