New Yorkers really shouldn’t be allowed to cover the Oscars. Maybe it’s something in that water that calcifies vital showbiz synapses. Or maybe they should drive more.
David Carr, the NYT’s Carpetbagger, proves without a shadow of a doubt that he’s all wrong for his job.
Alan Arkin was the name they announced when it came time to open the envelope for best supporting actor, leaving Eddie Murphy with a frozen smile and Mr. Arkin with a significant bit of recognition for a lifetime of work. It was the night’s first surprise, and it sent a pronounced ripple through the press room. The Bagger, btw, never saw it coming.
We’ll bet that’s not all he never saw coming. Equally feeble is another NYT writer:
