Top Ten #220: Special "Awards again tonight" Edition

1) The Oscars: Tonight the Academy Awards honor a bunch of movies, but I get the feeling that most people are more anxious about the final ratings number than about any of the individual awards.

2) Flamingo Road: Finally, the 1980s NBC primetime soap comes to Blu-Ray this Tuesday! Wait, being told it's the 1949 Joan Crawford film. Yeah, I guess that makes more sense.

3) Frank Welker: Happy birthday to the voice of...everything.

4) A&E Network: They touted starpower at their upfront presentation this week, but I keep thinking about the old days when they were small time and proud of it:

5) Columbo: You know what IS getting a Blu-Ray release this year? Yes, Columbo, and Kino Lorber will pack it with extras, but better start saving now.

6) Girl Scouts Day: They're more than just thin mint vendors! The tagalongs are great, too!

7) Jane Doe: The TV movie about a hunt for a serial killer premiered 40 years ago tonight and starred Karen Valentine and William Devane along with Eva Marie Saint.

8) Larry Hankin: The character actor has a new memoir from Bear Manor Media, which has a Q&A with him in its latest e-newsletter.

9) Caren Kaye: Happy birthday! May Crackle honor you by adding the remaining It's Your Move episodes. Or how about this:

10) R.I.P.: Robert Blake, Topol, Bert I. Gordon: Gordon didn't have much to do with TV (except maybe MST3K), but he was 100! ANd he didn't kill anyone (that I know of). Here's a quick look at Topol in The Winds of War:
