It turns out Billy Beane wasn’t the only general manager at the Oscars last night, as Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts found a couple screen grabs showing Ned Colletti in the crowd (and with some pretty great seats).

Colletti was sitting directly behind Michelle Williams and told Weisman that he got the seats through a friendship with Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak, calling it “a once in a lifetime” chance to go as his guest.

Also of note: Colletti replaced Paul DePodesta as Dodgers general manager in 2005 and Jonah Hill got a “best supporting actor” nominee for portraying the “Peter Brand” character based on DePodesta in “Moneyball.”

Hill, like the rest of “Moneyball,” got shut out.

    Ned thought that he was up for an Oscar for his role as Bernie Lomax in the Weekend At Bernie’s movies.

    Glad he was there-at least it was a precious few hours where Ned couldn’t be working on more awful GM moves.

    If Needle Head would quit his day job, he could make all Dodger fans very happy and have plenty of time to attend silly “award” shows.
