The Oscars might actually be worth watching:

At the annual Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences luncheon for nominees on Monday, Oscar telecast producer Gil Cates announced that this year’s broadcast would be as different from previous ones as the controversial Rock is from previous hosts.

In his attempt to save time and “get more of the nominees seen on television,” Cates said that some winners will receive their award from a presenter parked in the audience. In other categories, nominees will be invited to gather on stage before the winner is announced.

If this latter part applies to the acting awards, I for one will be entertained to see four people biting their lips and looking elsewhere and/or at the winner with murder in their eyes.
