I'm with Judd Apatow on having a best comedy category at the Oscars. The critcs' choice has a category. The Golden Globes have it, and they always butcher it, so why not the Oscars?
After all, Apatow argued, animated features have been separated into their own category. “It doesn’t seem like it’s screwing up Schindler’s List for Hangover to have its own category,” he said. “Since comedies are rarely up for Oscars, it does make sense to have a comedy category. It would just add more fun categories.”Seth Rogen, while doing press junkets for 50/50, said he forgave Katherine Heigl for her negative comments regarding Knocked Up. No comments on her past few box office flops.
