Some folks are pushing A Serious Man's Fred Melamed as a possible best supporting actor awards candidate. I don't know about that (although if the movie keeps doing as well as it is doing, it will have long coattails indeed), but the home videos on his Facebook page are a must-see. Besides reading the Percy Bysshe Shelley sonnet "Ozymandias," he takes credit for giving the Coens the ending of A Serious Man!

With new management overseeing the slimmed and trimmed versions of the LAT and LA Weekly, Annie Gilbar is out at the LAT Magazine and LA Weekly veteran Steve Mikulan follows Laurie Ochoa out the door. The "Media Transformers" panel at Digital Hollywood conference in Santa Monica next week should be revealing, with high-ranking reps from the Times, Weekly, The Wrap, A.P., Mediaweek and Variety.

According to Businessweek, no matter what happens with Comcast and NBC/Universal, General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt is sticking with failing-upward Jeff Zucker, because he knows Zucker will look out for GE's interests.
