The Oscars suck.

I think we’re done here.

The Oscars feature pretty girls in strange costumes. Just turn off the sound and watch.

At least they are having Ann Hathaway and James Franco be in charge this year.

Academy Awards are an event where the self-important get together, telling the world how important they all are.

Mrs. OLA and I will keep up our perfect streak of never watching this AA dope fest.

You make an important point. This particular AA ceremony is likely to be a Union slobberfest.

How many A-listers will turn up in Union clothes (or orange-clothing) to ‘make a statement’?

Hmmm... I went to the movies once in 2010. Don’t remember what I saw, the movie was that good.

I have never watched the Oscars.

I don’t have a clue as to today’s top movie stars.

My favorite movie is “The Best Years of Our Lives” which, I think, won an Oscar or two.

Deservedly.

Yeah, count me as one of “The Oscars Suck” crowd.

I cant really say I hate the Oscar's as much as I just don't give a rats a$$ about them. If not for this thread I would not know it was tonight... thought it was last week and somebody called Gaga arrived in a big plastic turd.

Only two times I’ve watched was when a friend named John Dykstra won the Oscar for Star Wars (I worked on the film with him) and when Braveheart was nominated.

Haven`t watched the Oscars for decades. It`s a pointless, extravagant display of self-congratulation and mindless, rambling political grandstanding.

Hollywood and its celebrities mean nothing to me. They aren`t worthy of my time.

“A friend named John Dykstra won...”

That, to me is the interesting stuff... the folks behind the scenes who pull it all together. They`re far more deserving than the prancing prima donnas who get all the accolades.

Celebrity culture. An oxymoron? - Anemic women with their very expensive dresses and jewelry wearing THEM instead of the other way around. - As for movie theaters, someone commented that they didn’t go any more because of the bedbug problem. Now, I don’t know if that’s true or not. - I think I won’t be watching the Oscars and the “beautiful people” either. I quit watching the beauty pageants a long time ago, and haven’t seen much of the Oscars. I’m old and gratefully out of the loop on the Oscars.

Well Dolly, if most FReepers watched as many movies in 2010 as I did, there would not be much activity on either thread. I watched zero movies in the past 15 or 20 years.

Four hours of mutual mental masturbation. Yuck!

But, some of the girls are nice to look at.

The OSCARS are primarily a Cotillion, a coming out party, a Welcome to the Big Time suaree all in one, broadcast to all for their own glorification.

Yes you have. Seriously you forgot the sarc tag.

Actually, I have only the vaguest recollection that Hathaway is an actress, or otherwise is some sort of 'celebrity.' The Franco guy I wouldn't know if he walked in my front door.

I almost never watch network TV. If it ain't on the weather channel, Fox News, the History Channel, the Military Channel or CNBC, I don't see it.

Ditto for movies. The last time I went to a theater was to see Casino Royale in 2006.

Almost all significant information I get anymore comes from the internet.

We went to one movie in 2010 too....Toy Story 3.

I doubt Woody and company will show up at the Oscars.

I too, could’nt care less. We’ve been enjoying a “Lord of the Rings” triology fest this weekend.

Star Wars was robbed of the Best Picture award. As a kid, I was devastated, and have hated awards shows ever since. I didn’t even attend my own college graduation.

The devil is in the details.

But in the US, the number of people attending movies is on the decline.

Hooray for Hollyweird!

I look at it this way: We’re capitalists. The Oscars are a three hour ad. I have no prob with ads. But the ad stinks and the product’s cr@p. Which makes it a very tough sell.

We just turned off the TV because they wouldn’t stop with all this oscars crap on F’n’F this morning. I remarked to my wife that I’ve hated everything to do with hollywood, actors, and all the surrounding garbage since I was a little boy (about 5 decades ago!). I think it just shows more evidence of our societal rot when a big part of the nation is cackling and fawning over what some of these freaks are going to be wearing.

News Corp owns 20th Century Fox. That's why FNC's hyping the Oscars. And Black Swan is Fox Searchlight, IIRC. 127 Hours, too...
