The Arizona coach is like a quivering tea kettle. Wisconsin's guy is witty enough to do stand-up comedy. The only one of these four head coaches I'd ever buy anything from - a toaster, an annuity - is Baylor's, and he's gone. Also gone is the Aztecs' Steve Fisher, who had to be the inspiration for Coach T in those Toyota spots. In the postgame confab Thursday night, he lashed out over a breach of protocol, then ended the odd session by asking the media about the timing of a goaltending call.

Now that the debauched "Hangover" film franchise seems to have slowed, star Zach Galifianakis has been keeping himself occupied with his painfully, purposely awkward online talk show "Between Two Ferns. " Hosting his most recent guest - none other than President Obama -  Galifianakis delivered his usual mix of stilted conversation and deadpan insults that have made the show a Web favorite, but the commander in chief matched him joke for joke. Galifianakis, for example, asked Obama what it's like to be "the last black president" and followed up by noting that he can't run for a third term.

The exclusive party, in past years held at the Sunset Tower, moved to a parking lot on the south side of West Hollywood's Sunset Plaza, the main tent offering sweeping views of the city from one side and a wall lined with portraits of past Oscar winners on another side.

Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, this year's Academy Awards are shaping up as the Selfie Oscars. Ellen's celebrity-filled group selfie has smashed the previous retweet record holder, President Obama's "Four more years. " At 9 p.m. PST, the Ellen tweet was pushing 1.8 million retweets (although Twitter stuttered with the traffic load brought on by the tweet, and different users were seeing different totals). That obliterates the Obama retweet total of 778,801. The DeGeneres tweet was taken by Bradley Cooper, and included with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep (and her glasses)

David O. Russell rewrote "Silver Linings Playbook" more than 20 times, honing the material so it would feel completely real and natural, a vibe he values most in his filmmaking. In this excerpt from the Envelope Screening Series, Russell and lead actor Bradley Cooper talk about the work involved in achieving that authenticity of the everyday. "I wanted it to feel like we're almost spying on people," Russell says, "that we've captured them in mid-performance, so the performances are not teed-up like, 'Here is a performance.' It's more like you're just dropped into the middle of somebody's house.
