Dodgers GM Ned Colletti has night at the Oscars

At the Academy Awards on Sunday night, a mustachioed man was sitting behind best actress nominee Michelle Williams.

Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said he was flipping through channels when the mustachioed man caught his eye. The man was his general manager, Ned Colletti.

“I flipped the channel and was like, ‘Ned!’ ” Mattingly said.

Colletti wasn’t at the Dodgers’ spring-training complex on Sunday. He was expected to be back some time Monday.


Asked if he was hurt that he wasn’t invited to the awards show, Mattingly laughed and said, “I found that out, right?”
