Oscar countdown: Day 3

In case Sunday's radio spot wasn't going to be enough for you, I'll also be appearing on Matthew Socey's new film show, "Film Soceyology," on the local NPR affiliate. (As Matt put it to me, "What good's a name like this if you can't put it to use?") That will be this Friday at 5 p.m. on WFYI HD-2. If you don't have an HD radio receiver, you can listen to it live on

Our old friend Lou Harry, the A&E editor of Indianapolis Business Journal, will be joining us. We'll talk about the Oscars, the ups and downs, and which starlet will have the most killer dress. OK, I was kidding about that last part.

By the way, "Three Amigos" was nominated for exactly zero Oscars, and most critics gave it a pasting. But I always found it to be very funny.That take where they're in the desert and Steve Martin and Martin Short's canteens are bone dry, and they turn to Chevy Chase and he's just gulping down water, sloshing it over his face, cracks me up every time.
