Bale, hat in hand, at KROQ

84575340 Feel free to make fun of me at my expense, I deserve it completely.

That, today, from Christian Bale, whose apocalyptic rant on the set of "Terminator: Salvation" -- and the dance remix thereof -- gave us all a whole lot of entertainment value this week.

Make fun? We sure did. Now, it's time for the mea culpa from the star of the eight-time Oscar nominated "The Dark Knight," and he chose, of all places, this morning's drive-time KROQ show. He said, in short:

"I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that."


"There is nobody that has heard that tape that's been hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it. It is unexcusable. I hope that that is absolutely clear."

Well, it's the least he could do. Does it make up for the verbal beat-down he gave the action pic's director of photography? Not sure about that. But it probably will work to rehab his image somewhat with a Hollywood awards establishment that doesn't cotton to the bad boys. 

More on the hubbub here, and listen to the audio here

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!
