Another chilly start in LA - sub zero in some areas - but I know it's nothing really. The sun will be out soon.
Just been watching and laughing again at all those great clips of Leslie Nielson, who died last night. A real comic genius. I'll be talking more about him on the radio later - and hearing some of the tributes from Hollywood.
Also tonight - after the Thanksgiving Holiday, Hollywood turns its thoughts, not to Christmas - but the Oscars. Screener DVDs are flying off mail trucks to Academy members around LA - with the awards season getting into full swing. Who's in the running this year?
