NEW YORK - With only a week to catch our breath after the lengthy cavalcade of Winter Olympics coverage, this year's Oscarcast may have seemed a refreshingly snug handout of awards. After all, it lasted only slightly more than three and a half hours, aired on ABC from a single venue (Hollywood's Dolby Theatre), and was emceed by the comfortably reliable Ellen DeGeneres.
LOS ANGELES - With less than a week to go before the Academy Awards, the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood is on lockdown. Guards stand at every door, and handlers with walkie-talkies keep a close eye on any visitors.
LOS ANGELES - Have the Oscars gone Grammys?
NEW YORK - Merwin Foard has one of the oddest jobs on Broadway: He gets paid not to perform.
LOS ANGELES - Bette Midler will perform at the Academy Awards for the first time.
