Nighty-night — here's what's coming in tomorrow's paper

That's a rap, kiddos. Go to sleep. And when you wake up in the morn, here's what will be in your Monday Sun-Times:

• Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert writes about experiencing the Oscars from a totally new perspective this year — from his living room: "One of the unexpected things about watching the show at home is that I never quite realized how elaborate the lead-up to the program is. "

• Also, Ebert cohort and Web site editor Jim Emerson presents his complete report on the night's show: "In an evening of upsets, 'The Departed' pulled ahead in the final moments of the 79th Academy Awards to take best picture Oscar and also the director prize — at last — for the long overlooked Martin Scorsese."

Jennifer Hudson's family and friends react to her big win.

• Sun-Times TV columnist Doug Elfman rates the telecast's better moments: "Maybe 'Little Miss Sunshine’s' Abigail Breslin, 10, and Will Smith’s son Jaden, 8, should have been co-hosts. They announced two awards for short films (Abigail and Jaden are short, ha ha). And they were more relaxed and composed than just about anyone else, including DeGeneres, but then anxiety is part of Ellen’s shtick."

• Sun-Times celebrity columnist Bill Zwecker rounds up the hottest moments from the red carpet: "Michael Sheen, when asked how he felt about following up his performance as Tony Blair in “The Queen” with the upcoming 'Frost/ Nixon' — portraying David Frost in the film based on the play — joked, 'I’d better find a fictional character — quick! And hopefully, an American at that!' "

• Fashion reporter Maureen Jenkins awards couture's winners and losers on the red carpet, such as, "Best vintage-inspired flashback: Although Jennifer Lopez walked the red carpet in a vintage-looking stone-adorned, empire waist gown from Marchesa (she also wore Marchesa to this year’s Golden Globes), the design was new. But her much shorter bobbed hair looked straight out of a 1960s roller set (albeit a glamorous Hollywood-ready one)."
