Tyler Perry Finally Acknowledges Oscars


More than month after Tyler Perry's executive-produced labor of love Precious was nominated for six Oscars, the media impresario finally sent a fan message recognizing the film's standing at the Academy Awards. Also: He's presenting! "So strange," Perry wrote. "I became an Academy member last year and, this year, I'm asked to present. How cool is that?! Catch it this Sunday night if you can. 6 Nominations for PRECIOUS -- I'm so happy for them." If I can? If I can? Yeah, well, Bad Boys II is on NBC that night, I guess, so... If I can. God, I love this guy. [TylerPerry.com]
