Blackwolf @ the Oscars 2010: Jeff Margolis Returns!

The prodigal son returns!

One of the true icons of television, Jeff Margolis, has been chosen to executive producer the Oscar Night pre-show, produced and sanctioned by the Academy, of course.

Jeff has spent over 30 years shaping the face of the television special, having supervised over 100 major events: the Miss America Pageant, the American Music Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and such specials as Motown 45, A Musical Christmas @ Walt Disney World, CBS: 50 Years from Television City, Sammy Davis, Jr.'s 60th Anniversary Celebration --- and lots, lots more! Jeff is a multiple Emmy and DGA Award winner who occasionally makes cameo appearances as himself in all his shows.

And Jeff is no stranger to Oscar, having directed several of the big shows, as well as produced and directed the VHS package Oscar's Greatest Moments. A thrill it is seeing this television legend get back into the game where he belongs. Be a dear, won't you, Mortals of the Academy, and let him direct next year's telecast, hmmmm?

Blackbeard on: America's Most Wanted

Ahoy, bilge rats! Blackbeard the Pirate here. Now shut up n' lissen:

Now be the time fer us Bad Guys to mumble our three favorite words: "Curses! Foiled again!" And why, ye'll be askin' yerselves wi' some impatience, be this? I'll tell you why: There be a good chance that there won't be anyone, Pirate or otherwise, left to arrest now that America's Most Wanted is soon t' cellybrate its 1000th Episode!

And even afore they made it to a thousand episodes, those landlubbers have placed 1100-plus fugitives in ye brig, an' countin'! Seems t' me, mateys, that these folks won't be 'appy 'less they've got someone in bloomin' 'andcuffs! Well, this be what happens when ye don't mess about wi' a winnin' formula. Fox tried t' keelhaul this show once afore, but an outcry some of this 'ere nation's law-enforcement swabs made 'em think again; and see ye now what has resulted!

Well, I'd best git me scurvy self goin'. That loony Wizard be ready to reach 500 post in this 'ere blog, an' I'll be more'n happy to be in on th' party! Arrrr!
