Douglas to skip Oscars


Actor Michael Douglas has decided not to accompany his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones to the Oscar ceremony because he wants to stay home with their children Carys, nine, and Dylan, 12. “Catherine is attending the Academy Awards with a family member, as Michael just doesn’t feel like going. Michael will stay at home with son Dylan and daughter Carys, while Catherine will attend the ceremony and the after parties with her pal,” a source told “He has been very busy of late, promoting his forthcoming biopic ‘Liberace’, as well as ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. But Catherine looks forward to the Oscars every year. She loves the glitz and glamour of the event and wouldn’t miss it for the world,” added the source. The ceremony will take place here Sunday at the Dolby Theatre.
