OSCAR SHORTS

OK, so you're given to snooze through that portion of the Academy Awards telecast when they give out the awards for best short film and best animated short. Who ever sees these things, anyhow? Where are they shown and when?

The answer to the first question is: It could be you. The answer to the second question is: The Regent Square Theater, beginning tonight.

The 10 Oscar-nominated short films come to the big screen, and audience members can vote for their favorite at the end. The program includes the live-action winner, "This Charming Man," and the animated winner, "The Chubb-chubbs," which audiences saw for the first time accompanying the theatrical release of "Men in Black II."

OK, so maybe you do get to see some of these things. The entire program runs 93 minutes. For showtimes and other information: 412-682-4111. ( Ron Weiskind)

TWEAKING 'HULK'

Director Ang Lee says he completed the final print of "The Hulk" at 2 a.m. Monday, just hours before he was supposed to give interviews to the press.

He greeted the press corps for a screening Sunday night at the Universal Studios Alfred Hitchcock Theatre and then went back to the lab to finish the film, which will be released to the public June 20.

"I was still working a lot at the lab, I was still tweaking the release print in the lab at the studio," Lee said Monday.

The film, starring Eric Bana and Jennifer Connelly, co-stars Nick Nolte and Sam Elliot, who were giving interviews Monday. Connelly canceled because she is pregnant. At the press junket on Monday, Nolte had trouble getting onto the studio lot because his name wasn't at the gate.

"It's OK, the security is super-tight these days," said Hurd. "They wouldn't let me on the lot this morning either."

But Bana says that his limo driver persuaded the guard when Bana didn't have his ID to get into the lot.

"He said to the guard, 'Hey, this guy in the back is the Hulk, and you don't want him to get angry,' " Bana said. (Mike Szymanski, Zap2it.com)
