An amusing development, if true.....
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes may boycott next month’s Oscars ceremony because they don’t want an awkward red carpet confrontation with the host, Anne Hathaway.
The 28-year-old actress, who will be presenting the 83rd Academy Awards alongside 127 Hours actor James Franco, upset Katie by mocking her on U.S.comedy show Saturday Night Live in November.
Anne was guest-presenting the comedy show when she mimicked Katie in a sketch, speaking in breathy tones and constantly tucking her hair behind her ear.
‘Tom and Katie don’t want to have to cross paths with Anne,’ says a Hollywood source.
‘They used to be friends and took Anne to a Tina Turner concert in 2008 when Anne split up from her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri.
‘Katie feels they were really supportive at a difficult time so she feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her.
‘Anne didn’t even warn her it was going to be on TV.’

I'm more inclinded to believe that any Oscar "snub" would be because Cruise has never won one, isn't even in the running for the foreseeable future, and it is now just plain embarassing for him so he doesn't even bother try to arrange it around any claimed shooting schedule.
It has become a universal truth that scientology and his self-declared expertise in the history of phsychiatry has not helped him with this.
Eitherway, failure to confront and shatter supression. Flunk.
I hope that means we can be entertained with Tom Cruise/Scientology jokes in his absence on the big night.
