... Isn't Bruce Vilanch still head writer for the Oscars? o_O

I haven't been watching. I keep thinking of Coldheart Canyon, and wish I hadn't gotten rid of my copy so I could open it to the relevant pages about the Oscars... "the Night of Nights, the Show of Shows... the circus..." (Beginning of Chapter One of Part Four)

I didn't even change channels to take a look this year (if I had any horses in this race, it's not like they'd win anyway). I figure next year around this time I might have me a Terry Gilliam marathon.

As I've gotten older, I wonder whether Threepio was meant to be an ethnic caricature. He's fussy and subservient and British-sounding, yes, but at some point I had the notion he was a caricature (intentional or not, and no idea if it's the writing or the performance or both) of an Indian, not, I dunno, someone English and/or gay?
