David Carr’s recently launched “The Carpetbagger” Oscar column in the New York Times has, for me, the right unpretentious attitude. He seems to be saying, “Maybe I know something about this racket, but maybe I don’t…who knows?” Carr’s items are fast and astute (i.e., he’s hearing the same stuff I am, and reporting it concisely and with a little perspective). And I loved his dopey little video walk-through asking Times Square passers-by if King Kong has a shot at being nominated for Best Picture. Surrrre!
