"Doogal" is the laziest, most disheartening kind of animated film for kids: one that seems interested in entertaining them only on the most fundamental level (through colorful talking animals and flatulence jokes) while frantically cramming in as many pop-culture references as possible to preoccupy their parents.

For most filmmakers, the chillingly amusing body-count comedy that is "Fargo" would be an act of daring. For the writing-directing-producing team of Joel and Ethan Coen, however, it is a welcome piece of retrenchment. It's been almost a decade since "Raising Arizona," the last small-scale whacked-out piece of business from the Coens.

"TNT Screenworks," a TV-movie series created to showcase the work of stage writers, makes a sharp debut today with the startling adaptation of playwright David Mamet's "Water Engine" (TNT at 5, 7 and 9 p.m.). It's astonishing because Mamet's 1977 stage version, a radio-play-within-a-play set entirely in a broadcast studio, remains a muddle next to this wide open, riveting screen treatment, also written by Mamet. Screen adaptations frequently compromise or distort a stage play--but not here.

In addition to bestowing lots of love on upstarts like ABC's "Ugly Betty" and NBC's "Heroes" and "30 Rock," the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Thursday also embraced a saucier side. Remember that much-talked-about, much e-mailed, much-parodied "Saturday Night Live" skit starring a bearded Justin Timberlake singing about his, uh, gift that keeps on giving? It was nominated in the original music and lyrics category.

Outside the Governors Ball, handlers waited for their celebrities like tour guides awaiting tourists at the airport. Charlie Sheen, this way; Anjelica, over here. Inside, more than 400 Patina waiters in their Mao jackets had been instructed: no stargazing. But that didn't prevent the scuttlebutt -- "420, that's the best table in the house," one waitress said. Clearly, Al and Meryl's. Earlier, at the bar, Ellen DeGeneres had cornered Elaine Stritch.
