Report from the Oscar Bleachers

Leo_bigger [Borys Kit] - We could hear Robert Osborne introduce William Friedkin & Sherry Lansing. “Love that show on AMC,” said Friedkin. “TMC, actually,” Osborne said, correcting him, as the bleacher audience, packed with seat fillers and reporters, howled.

- Singer Michael Buble was content to step to the back of his date, “Devil Wears Prada’s” Emily Blunt. Mostly. When he heard a “What are you wearing?” question once too many, he yelled to the bleachers, “You want to talk Oscar dress? This is an Oscar dress!” And pointed to his dashing tux.

- James Taylor talked about being at his first Oscar ceremony.

- Graham King deftly avoided best picture predictions by focusing on his movie’s director: “If Marty can bring it home, I’ll be the happiest guy here.”

- Little Miss Sunshine’s Jonathan Dayton had a yellow hankercheif tucked in his tux’s pocket.

- Many stars, like Leo, breezed by, as did Daniel Criag and his date, giving only a nod and a wave.

- When Kathy Baker walked by, one fan yelled “I love you Kathy!” “I love you, too,” Baker yelled back.

- Most bizarre and random yell was by one lady to Francis Ford Coppolla: “I met you at my Uncle Dennis Hopper’s wedding!” Coppolla just nodded and smiled, and moved on.
