Cates: The (Oscar) Show Must Go On

Academy Awards show producer Gil Cates insists that the Oscars will be presented as scheduled on February 24, whether or not the strike of the Writers Guild of America remains in effect through that date. "We are going to do it," Cates told the Associated Press Tuesday. "I can't elaborate on how we're going to do it, because I don't want anybody to deal with the elaboration in a way that might impact its success." Added Academy President Sid Ganis: "We're not panicking. We're preparing our show, and we're moving forward." Some studio executives were skeptical, however. Harvey Weinstein of the Weinstein Co. told A.P.: "No matter what anybody says, if the WGA goes on strike and SAG is in support, then there's no Oscar show. It's as simple as that."
