'Runway' not running away


The bloodless, whiny and grating season of "Project Runway" that we're suffering through right now -- we're all complaining, but we're all still inexplicably watching -- might come back to bite Bravo in the butt.

The cable net might be stuck with the show after all!

THR's reporting this afternoon that NBC Universal just won a preliminary injunction against The Weinstein Co., producer of the Peabody-winning and Emmy-nominated reality show. That means, at least for now, that "Runway" isn't running away (to Lifetime).

This won't affect the current season -- seems we'll have to put up with cry baby Kenley for at least another episode. When, oh when will she be out? And for all the goodwill that Heidi Klum's built up over the series, even she's beginning to get on our nerves after that "performance" at the Emmys.

Check back for more histrionics.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
