Oscars: Courtney Cut

Unfortunately, for Courtney Friel fans, the blonde beauty will not return to the red carpet tonight at the 81st Annual Academy Awards. After an On the Record with Greta van Susteren Oscars report Friday, the FNC correspondent said, “I, unfortunately, won’t be there to cover it. I know there’s [sic] tiny violins playing in the living rooms right now, feeling bad for me.” A sympathetic Greta replied, “I was hoping for that….that you were going to do it.”

Clearly chagrined, Courtney answered, “The economy is affecting us all: Even the corresponding is getting cut down.”  Consolingly, Greta commented, “We’ll have to watch, unfortunately, from our living rooms and miss your commentary: But, Courtney, next year! The economy is coming back so next year!” An appreciative Courtney pumped her fist and, hopefully, asserted, “That’s right!”

No worries, Courtney. According to a Drudge headline, the Oscars this year may be the most boring ever. Chin up!

    Poor Courtney! She is just not wanted anywhere! She is not very good at what she does. Maybe she should change her profession.
    I wanted to be a housewife like June Cleaver, but, alas, I was no good at it and got a job. My husband and my children really appreciated it!

    […] Nope. We save our prayers and concern for the poor put-upon entertainment “reporter” who is gainfully employed, but has been denied the opportunity to be flown out to L.A. to cover the Oscars. While one of us was home the other morning, she kept the Strategy Room on in the background, and there was Courtney Friel whining and bitching about the travesty of not being sent to cover this crucial event. Apparently she has been on a crusade, as she keeps whining and complaining ON THE AIR about this unbearable injustice. https://jakeho.wordpress.com/2009/02/22/oscars-courtney-cut/ […]

    The Drudge Report said that the Oscars may be the most “bearing” ever? Did Homer nod and was “unbearable” the correct word? Or did you mean to use the word, “unwatchable?”

    Or the most “soporific”? or “somnolent”? Or just plain “boring”? (Ah!Probably the last, eh?)

    BTW, my meal today was provided by El Alamo Mexican Restaurant, a place you may have heard of, the name of which is akin to calling a Japanese restaurant, “Pearl Harbor.”

    Hgb3, you are quite right: Believe it or not, I just caught that and corrected it prior to reading your comment. As to the moniker of the Mexican restaurant, that is crazy.

  5. Tom B. Says:

    I noticed that too. I just I assumed I was the one out of the loop. I figured I would defer to Jake. I almost feel smart.

  6. Tom B. Says:

    Oh well, I noticed another mistake I made in my last comment. I no longer feel smart.

  7. Al Says:

    Even smart people like you make mistakes, Tom. For what it’s worth, I had to read your first comment five times before spotting it.
