Yes, I've still got my Hollmann Awards, but: BUSY DAY AHEAD!
I'm behind on the blog because I got a new job, a writing gig, and we've been working double-time for the Oscars. Tonight, I am part of a LIVE broadcast at the W Hollywood Hotel in, yes, HOLLYWOOD. This is just down the street from the Dolby Theater where my beloved Meryl will be presenting an Oscar and will feature some party shenanigans, so it's all very exciting. If you like to supplement your Oscar experience with commentary, do take a peek at bitesizetv.com. We'll be going up along with the red carpet coverage....
