SHOW BITS: No Oscar love from Sharon Osbourne

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even though she was at the Elton John AIDS Foundation's annual Oscar viewing party, Sharon Osbourne made it clear she could not care less about who was winning what a few miles away.

"I don't give a (expletive) about the Oscars, I just care about being here," she told the celebrity studded crowd at the 22nd annual event, which raises money to fight the disease.

"(Expletive) the Oscars," she added.

Instead, the "The Talk" co-host urged the well-heeled crowd to dig deep and donate beyond the ticket paid for entry to the swanky event.

And she did it in her usual coarse manner.

"Ladies, forget about the shoes, forget about the handbags, all that (expletive) you were going to do tomorrow," she said.
