IMPORTANT ENDORSEMENT: Simon Cowell told Jay Leno Monday night that he's a fan of northwest Ohio resident Crystal Bowersox on American Idol. Interesting that the king of snark is actually going out of his way to applaud Bowersox, who is scheduled to sing on the Fox show tonight. RL
OSCAR FALLOUT: Kudos to Kathryn Bigelow for being the first woman director to win the golden statue, thumbs down pretty much for Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, and another Academy Awards night is under our belt. Expect lots of commentary on whether the two co-hosts stunk as bad as most people think, the general predictability of the winners (and losers), and plenty of pictures of the dresses. Here's a quick run-through from Thin Slices, with a look at the 16 most memorable moments last night, backstage in the press room, and Blade staff writer Kirk Baird's take on the night. Oh, and here's a look at the bests and worsts of the evening.
