If, on Oscar night 2010, Robert Pattinson showed up, looking drop-dead sexy in a tuxedo, and premiered an exclusive first-look at The Twilight Saga: Eclipse live on the stage of the Kodak Theatre, would you tune in to watch? Matthew Belloni, a columnist at The Hollywood Reporter, proposes that this year’s Oscar producers do exactly that to help boost ratings for the annual awards show. It’s an intriguing idea, but would it work?
I think it’s fair to say that the Oscars would get a ratings boost from premiering Eclipse footage, but a) Would you keep watching after you got your Jac0b-Edward-Bella fix? and b) Are there any other movies on the horizon that you’d watch the Oscars just to see footage of? Spider-Man 4? Russell Crowe in Robin Hood? Ryan Reynolds in The Green Lantern?

Oops, February or early March is just too far away for an Eclipse trailer. I'm hoping before 2009 ends, we can get a glimpse of the Saga's third installment. Come on Summit, it's just 6 months away. You have got to start teasing us now.
And I wish that Rob and Kristen grace the Oscars next year. They do have other movies to promote anyway. And the glitz and glamour of our young couple is what the Academy Awards desperately needs.
By the way, I am very much aware of the ugly rumors bout RobSten - that they are having squabbles about their Holiday plans as reported by rags. I am not falling for any baseless nonsense and will not post any of that here. Well, well the drought seems to strengthen my RobSten faith, lol.
