As a part of her new deal with ESPN signed last summer, Erin Andrews was given additional opportunities and TV time.  These included hosting an extra hour of College Gameday and becoming an ABC crossover personality by appearing on Good Morning America.  Well, now EA is going Hollywood by covering the Oscars with former ESPNer Robin Roberts.  From USA Today

The Mouse House is making good on its promise to Andrews to allow to her to cover both sports for ESPN and entertainment for sister network ABC.

Andrews bashers won’t like it but she’s working with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America’s coverage of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night. There she was in Hollywood Friday morning providing a behind-the-scenes hit for GMA viewers on the logistics for the Governor’s Ball.

Andrews bashers?  Are there actually people out there that don’t like Erin Andrews?  I suppose I haven’t met one yet.  Good for her to continue to expand her reporting and TV work by breaking into Hollywood.  The red carpet experience must beat being creeped out by thousands of drunk college dudes on a regular basis.  Erin should do us all a favor while she’s there and take out Joan Rivers’ scary robot corpse once and for all.  Seriously, that thing could be the star of the next Saw franchise.  Here’s a behind the scenes video with EA from Good Morning America…

In terms of Best Picture, I’ve got to go with The King’s Speech. By far the best movie I’ve seen this year and maybe one of my favorite of all-time.  Honestly, I thought it was going to be boring too but it ended up being a terrific movie.  There’s just something about a stuttering English monarch that speaks to me in a profound way.
