  1. Poor Don!
    He sent me an email detailing his experience at the Oscars and his on camera bit w/ Ellen got nixed 10 seconds before he was to go on.
    Ah well, his Geico commercial still gets him plenty of exposure for his great voice talent.

  2. Hi Peter,
    I received an email from Don as well. It’s amazing how many rehearsals there were, but hey, this is prime time and the Oscars after all 🙂
    I’d love to get a hold of Gina Tuttle to find out how her experience was. I heard that she is the youngest announcer that they’ve ever had at the Oscars – kind of neat.
