UPDATE: Oops, Ratner stepped down as Oscars producer. More here.

Not a good Monday for Brett Ratner
: in addition to waking up to the disappointing box-office results of 'Tower Heist,' Ratner found himself in a world of hot water after remarking to a crowd of moviegoers on Friday night in Los Angeles that, "Rehearsing's for fags." On Monday afternoon, many prominent film writers wondered whether that kind of slur would get Ratner fired from his next job: producer of the 84th annual Academy Awards. As it turns out, that won't happen. Yet.
