I took part in a Huffington Post discussion yesterday (me and five other guys) about what is essentially the myth of Oscar smear campaigns. Nobody starts bad buzz, but they fan it all to hell once it’s out there — that’s the worst you can say, I think. Thanks to HuffPosters for inviting me to participate, and thanks in particular to host Ricky Camilleri, who extended a nice pat-on-the-back by saying he’s an HE reader.
