Should HBO bid to air the Oscars telecast?

JuliaoscarThanks to this doctored ABC promo, we get to imagine a whole different kind of Oscars ceremony, one in which the winners are free to curse at will during their acceptance speeches — and, as it turns out, free not to thank the Academy or their agents or their fans, but rather to hurl two-word epithets at them (or, in the case of Julia Roberts, deliver a more extended and nasty set of insults). ABC surely hopes this spoof doesn’t travel far, as it invites visions of a more entertaining Oscars night, one that a certain pay-TV network would be more than happy to air. Via Defamer.
