The Academy Awards were almost decent this year! It's too bad about the host.
It's not at as bad as Allen Gregory was, but we've got one question: Who asked for this?

Currently, the BBC consists of nine TV channels, dozens of radio stations and numerous online outlets, so it's no wonder the corporation wants to scale down. Criticised in the past for taking on too much, it's now considering cutting its expenditure by dropping international acquisitions, and possibly even some channels.

HBO's road to resurgence will involve more huge penises and Hollywood douches. The premium cable channel has announced the renewal of the well-endowed comedy Hung, the movie-star lifestyle comedy Entourage, and smash sensation True Blood for extra seasons.
Our pick of the best TV shows on Aussie screens this week include the live finale of Australia's Next Top Model, the premiere of Project Runway Australia season two, a Lily Allen special on ABC2, and another tribute to Michael Jackson on Seven.
We've already made our picks for best supporting actress in a comedy in advance of the announcement of this year's Emmy nominations (July 16), and now we're moving on to the guys. Our crop has one Emmy staple and four rookies, but we think the new guys outshine the same old nominees the Emmys throw out.
The Emmys won't announce its nominations until July 16, but with the 2008-2009 season closed, we've already made our picks. We'll unveil them one day at a time over the course of the next two working weeks (Monday-Friday), with each day presenting a new category.
