Them's fighting videos! Oscar.com and YouTube are tussling over clips posted on the site of Ellen DeGeneres'  monologue and Will Ferrell's musical act, which were the most viewed clips on the site. Why is the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences POed? It's not about competition. It's a matter of pride. Oscar official Ric Robertson told Variety that the Academy is only trying "to help manage the value of our telecast and our brand." Yeah, right. Tell that to all the people who didn't watch Sunday night or the ones fell asleep during it.
