Ebert to return for the Oscars

roger ebertMovie critic Roger Ebert is still recovering from surgery he had in June to remove a cancerous growth on his salivary gland and then emergency surgery he had in July when a blood vessel burst. Ebert published a letter in Thursday's Chicago Sun-Times saying that he hopes to be back at work (at the paper and on television) in time for the Oscars and the Cannes Film Festival. He also said he plans to review The Queen, starring Helen Mirren, in this Friday's newspaper since a producer managed to get him a DVD copy of the film.

Since Ebert left his television show, Richard Roeper has hosted various guest film critics including Kevin Smith and Jay Leno. This week's co-host is A.O. Scott, a reviewer for the New York Times.

Cancerous growth on his SALIVARY GLAND? Jesus, another thing for me to worry about.

Is it just me or does that picture look like Roger is in his father's suit? He looks like he has lost another ton of weight. Here's hoping he recovers and stays healthy. He is one of the best movie critics I have read.
