And George Clooney introduces the In Memorium segment.
I wonder who they are going to forget this year, a la Bea Arthur and Henry Morgan. There was a great article in the Times or NY Magazine talking about how the folks who are included are often due to politicking. Which makes me somewhat sad.
Why are some of the names onscreen for longer than others?
Also, boy do I agree with Nora Ephron... "The hardest thing about writing is writing."
And now, halfway through the montage, Barbra Streisand comes out to talk about Marvin Hamlisch. Which is nice in sentiment, but it makes his death seem way more important than everyone elses.
And, Andy Griffith is the winner of Dead dude missing from the montage.
