Oscar’s got a hangover, says my latest LA Weekly column, and only a self-help step program’s gonna fix that. My advice to improve ratings includes: No more uncomfortable opening monologue, show us your tits instead! Create a mosh pit. Get rid of all the non-talent awards and sell that show to the Discovery Channel. Something rude about Angelina Jolie.
