Did you know John Cho is presenting at the Oscars? This is good news for all of us. Here he is last night at the Oscar Wilde Awards. And one quick note before we break until Sunday, the Spirit Awards are tomorrow so I’ll be posting photos in the LifeStyle section of the site.

Sunday night, Duana and I are aiming to start posting our Oscar recaps at 11pm PT/2am ET and going straight through to the next morning and afternoon so if you’re staying up, come join us. Happy Oscars!

So, as we mentioned in the last episode of Show Your Work, we won’t have a new episode this week, because Lainey and I are in LA this weekend when we would usually record the podcast, and Jacek is back in Toronto and won’t be there to remind me not to bang my hands on the table for emphasis. Full Story
