I got an email today from Don LaFontaine, the legendary voiceover artist best known for his work on seemingly every movie trailer and, more recently, for his Geico commercial (see above photo). Last year, I had the unique experience of conducting a telephone interview with Don, which is essentially like asking a question and hearing the bodyless voice of God respond to it. Anyway, Don tells me that he and his colleague Gina Tuttle will share the announcing duties at tomorrow’s Academy Awards ceremony. Nobody does it better than Don, so you can add one more reason to check out the show tomorrow evening.

    That guy is impressive… I wonder how many slip-ups he’s had, live, at said events.
