JiUJackson 's HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD -- Thankfully, the awards season is on the wane. Everyone is getting more than a bit sated over the "same old, same old." However, with the summer season almost upon us, produc- tion is slowing down and news is harder to find (except, of course, when Paris, Lindsay and Britney are around). One piece of news about the awards: It looks like Oscar may be in February come next go-round. Don't ask me why. Perhaps the powers that be feel they should be deliv- ered earlier. Much news lately about the late Orson Welles. I had the pleasure, or I might say the displeasure, of working with him on some of his radio presentations. He wasn't easy, And oh boy! When Orson got hungry, work stopped and the great Welles ate. We sat and watched. And oh how he did love to eat. Aside to Peter D. of Palm Beach, Fla.: Yes, that Keir Dullea now starring in the "Castle" series is the same Keir Dullea who played Lana Turner's son in "Madame X." And yes, I was the police- woman in that same pic. So, I came to know Keir well, and a nicer, more polite young man could not be found. I'm sure he has remained that way today. You also might remember Keir from "2001: A Space Odyssey" and the cult film "Bunny Lake Is Missing." I wish him all the best! Filmtown is mourning the passing of Fess Parker. He is being called "King of the Wild Frontier, a Television Icon and a Gentleman." And that he was. I had the pleasure of knowing him when he came to New Orleans and I had a TV show there. He was a guest. So polite. So nice. But I might add with all that leather in all that hot weather, sometimes when he made an appearance it didn't always smell like roses. Showbiz also mourning the death of June Haver, younger sister of stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. June had a nice career, but never as big as her sister's. I met them both when I was just starting out, and young enough to be very impressed knowing STRIPPERS! Gypsy even showed me how to do it. She would say, "It's all in the way you take it off." Then she would take it off! Aside to Martina E of Denver: You ask, "Who would I say is the bigger star, San- dra Bullock or Julia Roberts?" That isn't easy. They both are excellent actresses, they both are beautiful women, they both are big at the box office. So I will let my readers decide whom they like best -- Julia or Sandra. "Duke it out, girls!" A younger generation will get a taste of "Private Benjamin," and a new star, Anna Faris, will shine. The film was a big hit years ago when Goldie Hawn starred in the title role, and now viewers await the new version -- and the new private. More about this when we get it. BITS 'N' PIECES: Kaley Cuoco. Re- member the name. You'll be seeing a lot of her soon. On the tube and on the big screen .... Russell Crowe got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with all the brouhaha that could only come from Crowe. Interesting sidelight on this man: Every time you see him, he looks different.

But for the most part, you should now be well on your way to your next project. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new com- mitment might demand more time than you'd expected to have to give it. But rely on that special Bovine gift for patience, and stick with it. You'll be glad you did. GEMINI (May 21 to Jtme 20) You're earning the admiration of a lot of people who like the way you handle yourself when your views are on the line. Even one or two of your detractors are being won over. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking your responsibilities seriously is what you do. But ease up on the pressure gauge and make time for much needed R & R. Start by making this weekend a "just for fun' time zone.

What you learn might surprise you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Aspects favor moving carefully and deliberately when making any significant changes. Could be there are more facts ydu need to know, which you might overlook if you rush things. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A problem neighbor might be looking to goad you into an action you don't want to take.Ask someone you both respect if he or she would act as an impartial arbitrator for both of you. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A recent workplace accomplishment hasn't been overlooked by those who watch these things. Meanwhile, start making travel plans for that much-too-long-deferred trip with someone special. SAGrlq?ARIUS (November 22 to December 21 ) Those money matters continue to move in your favor. Now would be a good time to start putting some money back into the house, both for esthetic as well as economic reasons. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A changing workplace environment can cre- ate job pressures. But, once again, follow the example of your birth sign and take things a step at a time, like the sure-footed Goat you are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Cheer up. You could soon have the funds you need for your worthy project. Your gen- erous gifts of time and effort are well known, and someone might decide it's time to join with you. PISCES (February 19to March 20) Your in- ner scam-catcher is right on target, and you're absolutely right to reject that "too-good-to-be- true" offer. Meanwhile, something positive should be making its way to you. BORN THIS WEEK: You are generous, and also sympathetic to people who find they need the help of others. (c) 2010 King Features Synd..
