Darkness at 3AM: Cowell gripes

The 3AM team are still making the most of their flight to LA, too, giving Simon Cowell a chance to moan about not being invited:

"They think I'm the Antichrist. They don't like us TV people to be part of it - it's ridiculous. It reeks of snobbery."

Yes, the Oscars organisers hate television people having anything to do with the Oscars at all. That's why it was hosted by the Jon Stewart from Death To Smoochy rather than the Jon Stewart who presents The Daily Show. Can you imagine how awful it had been if they'd got that invite muddled up and the whole Oscars ceremony had been helmed by someone who works almost exclusively in television?
