HBO's cancelled "Luck" will not be Emmy eligible as a miniseries: "The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has said HBO's 'Luck' will be submitted in the series category. Some had speculated that 'Luck' might be eligible to be a contender for miniseries because it ended up airing for only one season. However, ATAS concluded that because the show was open-ended at the end of the first season and didn't have a specific beginning, middle and end of the storyline, the show didn't fit the full miniseries criteria."

"Undefeated" director TJ Martin discusses what he should and shouldn't have said when he won an Oscar: "'We knew basically what we wanted to say,' said Martin, 'but once you're up there, what you thought was the script totally goes out the window. What you can't prepare for is the amount of adrenaline rushing through your body.' And what he hadn't planned for was a four-letter word, bursting out in the excitement of the moment, as he exuberantly expressed a wish that all the nominated documentary filmmakers could be up on the podium with them, sharing the award — that would be '(bleeping) wonderful,' he said."
