Tom Roston, writing in Premiere.com, tries to tie the “how many producers can grab an Oscar” semi-crisis to the documentary category. Documentaries nominated all get space for one producer and one director. Davis Guggenheim, the director of An Inconveient Truth, will bound up to the stage alone should the film win. The three producers–Laurie David, Lawrence Bender, and Scott Burns agreed to stay seated, although they did apply to the Academy for an exception.
Roston foresees Al Gore striding manfully to the podium in a star-making moment. FBLA thinks it would awesome if Big Al laid a big wet one on the statuette babe, ala Adrien Brody.
