Friday, Nov. 9 ended the first week of the 2007 WGA strike. It was also the night that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences held the Jack Oakie Celebration of Comedy in Film featuring Judd Apatow, James L. Brooks and Larry Gelbart. Variety took the opportunity to barrage all three striking writers with questions, and a few of their friends besides (including actor Jonah Hill; he refused to comment).
