AQnd now, during the commercial break....

May I take a moment top observe that this show is moving like a freight train? It isn't even 11:30 and there are only three awards left.

Way back in 1990, I did a long interview with Bill Condon for my book Filmmaking on the Fringe. Back then he was directing made-for-TV thrillers and low-budget genre films; today he has an Oscar for Gods and Monsters and is one of this Oscar telecast's two producers (the other is Lawrence Mark).

Bill was a hell of a smart, nice, movie-loving guy then and I'm willing to bet that he's exactly the same now. So Bill, congratulations!
