Making News It's Obama versus Clinton in the Hollywood Primary

Bill and Hillary Clinton were Hollywood's favorite politicians, but a young new politician with a matinee-idol smile is pushing Hillary aside. Not only did Barack Obama make a big entrance at a fundraiser here this week, but one of his key supporters gave a taste of the battle to come by delivering some harsh words about the Clintons. Marty Kaplan is Director of the Normal Lear Center at the University of Southern California.

Guests:
Marty Kaplan, Director, USC's Norman Lear Center

Main Topic The Oscars, the Movies and TV

Oscar night has long been the entertainment event of the year, both in Hollywood and in living rooms across the country. There is nothing more glamorous than walking on the red carpet or getting the Academy's applause. Yet a growing number of writers and producers are moving to television, once considered film's poor cousin. Critics have been arguing that shows like Grey's Anatomy, 24 or Lost are more innovative and more gripping than the movies. Is it true that the studios have dumbed-down movies?  With more entertainment being made available on the Internet, are the movies going to be eclipsed completely as the home of great drama? Guest host Jim Sterngold speaks with industry insiders.

Guests:
Devin Gordon, Deputy Editor of Newsweek's Art and Entertainment Department
Tony Angellotti, Entertainment publicist
Jon Liebman, Chief Executive of Brillstein-Grey
