Wynn the Oscar?

LAS VEGAS -- Casino impresario Steve Wynn doesn't need the Super Bowl. He's got the Oscars. The billionaire will use Hollywood's biggest stage to air a commercial about his $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas megaresort that's slated to open April 28.

Wynn decided to book time on the Academy Awards, which will air Feb. 27 on ABC, after the NFL shot down a national Super Bowl spot on Fox because his commercial was associated with gambling, a long-standing league taboo.

Wynn knew the National Football League would probably reject his ad but he was surprised to learn he also had been censored in the gambling capital of the world.
