Oscar funnyman to show: play up envelope mess, not harassers

By LYNN ELBER

LOS ANGELES — Put comedy writer Bruce Vilanch on the spot by asking if he has a political gag suitable for the Oscars, and he makes a game try.

Oscar forecast

Bruce Vilanch, whom I love, has been head joke writer for the Oscars, weighs more than an Escalade, dresses like a vagrant and has long blond hair like Cate Blanchett. He says of the coming Academy Awards: “Good movies, but it’ll be tough on laughs, skimpy on parties and stingy on booze.”

From the moment the host Billy Crystal was wheeled onstage wearing a straitjacket and a face mask à la Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” viewers knew the 1992 Oscars were not going to be normal.

“It was a bit like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride,” Jodie Foster, the “Silence” star who won best actress that year, recalled in a telephone interview. “You were being catapulted from one surreal experience to the next.” Read More
