This week's topic on Sunday Morning Shootout: Scary bloggers and the studio wonks who hate them!
:02 Bart resents that websites hate facts and are making people forget that newspapers exist.
:04 Guber resents that the bloggers sunk A Mighty Heart and doesn't seem to know what the phrase "do gooder" means.
:04 Guber huffs that cable news network heads start their morning meetings by asking "what's on the dot com?" Oh dear. I wonder if Ted Stevens sits in on these meetings.
I'm sure Anne Thompson enjoys being lumped in with the low rungs of celebrity gossip sites.
:05 Ooh, Anne Thompson schools Bart! Blogs (and chat rooms, blech) are good enough for Bruce Willis. A Mighty Heart is totes depressing! Spielberg, Lucas, Indiana Jones, blah blah I don't care.
:07 Jessica Simpson diss count: 3.
:15 The star and producers of Hairspray!
:16 Guber wants to know... Musicals, wtf? (It's the gays, stupid.)
:17 Whoa, Guber seduced the theater gays in the 70s to Hollywood.
:19 Nikki Blonsky bosoms give her magic powers.
:21 Her audition process was some sort of cruel psychological experiment.
:23 Travolta was courted for A Chorus Line and Chicago!
:24 Trivia: Prior to Chicago in 2002, what was the last movie musical to win Oscar for Best Picture? I guessed Cabaret. It was Oliver. I suck at trivia.
:28 No one cares about broadway "stars".
:29 Holy ess, Guber is wearing loafers and white socks.
:30 "This was great!" Guber translation for: "I'm late for a tanning."
