DALLAS -- Mark Cuban seemingly is at several places at the same time. But the Dallas Mavericks' owner won't attend Sunday's Academy Awards in Los Angeles.
"This is the first year in a long time I’m not going out,'' Cuban said. "I got invited to some great parties, though.''
Cuban has a large stake in the movie business, having founded HDNet. He also was the executive producer for movies such as Good Night Good Luck, Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room, and No End In Sight -- a documentary about the Iraq War.
All of those movies were nominated for Academy Awards, including six for Good Night Good Luck, which was written, directed and starred by George Clooney.
