A Quick Oscar Reminder

The Oscars are coming up on Sunday and I guess I’m excited. I haven’t really seen that many movies this year and I’m pretty sure Hot Tub Time Machine didn’t get any nominations. I know, it’s unfair.

This morning though, I read an interview with Bruce Vilanch, the Jewish comedy writer who has been involved with writing the Oscars for years. He talks a lot about how to write for specific hosts and the delicate nature of writing jokes about touchy subjects.

Reading that section of the interview, I could help but be reminded of the amazing joke Steve Martin told last year in reference to Inglorious Basterds. I believe we’ve posted this video on the blog before but I think it’s worth watching again.
