All the slots are sold out! (Are you feeling the pressure, James & Anne?)
ABC is happily reporting that all of the advertising time for this year's Oscar's broadcast has been sold. We hear most of the ad space went to major studios plugging movies like Paramount, Summit Pictures, Universal and Walt Disney Pictures.
So, expect to see a lot of ads for Never Say Never, Red Riding Hood, Sanctum and Prom!
Other companies running ads include Amazon, AT&T and McDonald's.
What? Didn't want to remind everyone you have the iPhone again, Verizon?

We don't blame 'em!
According to a survey, ad buyers were asked various questions about the upcoming season of American Idol, including who their favorite judge is and how many seasons they think the singing competition has.
Most of the participants said that Simon Cowell was their favorite judge and that they believe this next season should be their last.
Many of them even agreed with Fox's decision to get rid of judges Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi.
As predicted, ad buyers believe that AI's ratings will most likely fall dramatically now that Simon is out and producers are scrambling to find the right mix on the judges panel.
Here's an easy answer: PICK PEREZ!!
