Thompson on Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino has lost his voice. Bill Mechanic the co-producer of the Oscars says he and Adam Shankman never fought and are new best friends. He's going in a populist direction with the show, he says, and they were tweaking things that didn't work last night.

Academy exec director Bruce Davis says the top ten best picture nominees will continue for two more years no matter what.

Kate Winslet just went whizzing by, as did CAA chief Richard Lovett, one of the most powerful people in Hollywood. Gabourey Sidibe and Helen Mirren went in. They are calling for people to take their seats. Jim Cameron (in video below) insists that Avatar is as much of an art film as any other film nominated tonight--and Inglourious Basterds star Eli Roth says his Hostel films were art films too. George Clooney has a flask in his suit --and says he's prepared to lose to Jeff Bridges.
