One thing that The Metro, everyone's favorite free East Coast daily, did get right on the money was Ryan Seacrest's red carpet performance. Whenever anyone or anything that makes me change the channel to Joan Rivers, you can be certain there is a serious problem.

I made a statement during the previous Academy Awards that went a little something like this: "E! is really tanking the pre-awards show this year. Ryan Seacrest has pissed off every celebrity he's interviewed and completely insulted them by offering them free DVDs of their own movies!"

As a public relations professional, I will hold off on calling Seacrest a moron. You can do that for me if you agree, but when he ever gave (I think it was) Naomi Watts a copy of the DVD to her own movie as a "gift" for being on his show, I laughed out loud when I saw the look on her face.

It looked a little something like this, and pardon me Naomi if I am being presumptuous:

"What the hell are you doing giving me a copy of my own movie? Do you have ANY IDEA how many of these I have?"

Classic.

You can rest assured the media gave Seacrest the same props for his performance last night.

    Mr.Guilfoil,
    You obviously don’t watch E! shows if you’ve never seen an E! interviewer give a star a DVD of his/her movie before. I’ve seen that done on E! a couple of times before and by other E! interviewers. It seems to be an inside joke on E! and if you looked only at Naomi Watts’ face, then you didn’t see Ryan Seacrest’s overly straight or overly innocent expression. To me it’s another sign that there’s a devilish sense of humor lurking under his boyishly goodlooking exterior.
    He’s obviously a guy who likes to walk the tightrope as a tv/radio host and interviewer and likes to be different. Young as he is and with his idols Dick Clark, Merv Griffin and Larry King giving him a lot of muchsolicited advice, it’s great that he is still showing his own personality–even if old folks like you don’t like it. I bet Dick, Merv and Larry only laugh at Ryan’s antics and Ryan’s fans do too. Lighten up, too,won’t you?
