There's been talk that the Oscars plan to keep the winners' speeches short, so Ryan Seacrest wanted to know what Best Actor nominee George Clooney ("Up in the Air") would do if his speech was cut off. "I even voted for Jeff Bridges," Clooney said. "So all I know is you sit back and go, 'Jeff keep your speech short' ...Jeff is the Dude, man" How sure is Clooney that Bridges will win for "Crazy Heart" tonight? "If you were saying to me, put all of your property on one thing, I would put all of it on that."
