OK... I LOOKED, SEARCHED.... didn't find anything from Dotty. But, seriously... tonight's the OSCARS! Where's our Live Thread??
Larry David in drag sings Steisand.
OMG, I don’t care either.
perfect example.. coming up.
I DESPISE Barbara Streisand’s personal opinions on just about everything.. but, I can still appreciate the woman’s talent.
It’s a part of the beauty of the world. I’m glad that I’ve never been so small-minded as to ignore it.
That said, the Old Dame ain’t as good as she USED to be... But then, who is? ;-)
Tribute now to the deceased.
None of the Best Picture nominees this year are left wing propaganda. Most are fairly conservative.
They were losing money. And since you’re a conservative, they still hate your guts. But they want your wallet. They will revert. Barry won.
Best Pictures winners tend to be fairly conservative with some exceptions over the years.
So do I, well at least new westerns. My family and I watch old westerns regularly.
Brokeback Mountain, or whatever the queer movie is called, will not be watched in my household. Can you imagine a movie of that sort being made in 1940?
I just looked this up, because there is no way I would know this off the top of my head.:
Brokeback Mountain won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was honored with Best Picture and Best Director accolades from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Golden Globe Awards, Producers Guild of America, Critics Choice Awards, and Independent Spirit Awards among many other organizations and festivals.
Brokeback Mountain was nominated for eight Academy Awards, the most nominations at the 78th Academy Awards, where it won three: Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score. The film was widely considered to be a front runner for the Academy Award for Best Picture, but lost to Crash. Brokeback Mountain ranks 11th among the highest-grossing romance films of all time.

That is America and American values (heavy sarcasm)
All those watching the Oscars need to think about that what you are supporting ... or perhaps that is why we have RINOs being elected?
Streisand can’t sing anymore. It was gruesome.
She could sing? Always sounded like warbling to me.
You are one piece of work, DJ MacWoW.
Thanks so much for stopping by here tonight to post such an intelligent comment.
OScar for Best Original Score... goes to...
Life Of Pi Michael Danna
LIFE OF Pi wins best original score. I heard it celebrates faith in God— have yet to see it.
She sucketh Tim.
haters gotta hate...
Geez, Renee Zellweger (sp?) looks bombed...
She sucketh Tim.
She shoulda stayed retired!
There was an expose a few years ago (it was on FR) where Hollywood types were asked pointed questions. They held most of us in contempt. Writers, directors, all of them. And they stated they had an agenda. I won't fund their destruction of my country.
Heck, if I had to sit through four hours of that, I’d get bombed too.
Thank you Sir !
Regards to you and yours.
Stay safe !.
Gays run the entire entertainment industry....if you want to get along, you go along. The biggest example of “Groupthink” there is, is Hollywood.
You’re welcome. A little reality is needed. These people hate everything that we stand for.
Frankly, I never liked Barbra Striesand’s singing that much. She was always too nasally for me. Same reason I don’t like Celine Dion, though I also don’t like her because of her ‘combative’ style of singing. Don’t know why that term comes to mind, when she’s singing, but it always seems so ‘in your face’.
OSCAR for BEST SONG goes to...
I hope that movie was a box office disaster like other lefty movies promoting the degeneration of all that’s good and righteous.
Drinks are in the green room.
Drinks are in the green room.
Heh. I just got through watching a western a few hours ago.... “The Border Sheriff” (1926), starring Jack Hoxie. Is that one old enough for you?
Certainly preferable to watching a bunch of backslapping, Obama-worshipping, degenerate scumbags. All of whom have contributed their utmost to transforming American culture into the open-sewer it now is. “Enemy” is too tame a word for those bastards.
Has Seth MacFarland made a Trig Palin joke yet? Again, burn in hell, Hollywood.
well, yes, but through many different religions, not just Christianity
That is incredibly naive. Hollywood has embraced communism for years. You, as conservatives, are hated and held in contempt by them. And you cheer them? I can't. They want to destroy America. And they are using film to do it.
Bramps, Adele DID sing live.
They (everyone MINUS Adele) were in the studio practicing and re-orchestrating everything to shorten the song for Oscar appropriate length.
The father of a good friend of mine did the orchestration of Skyfall and said that Adele (and Paul) were the most incredibly humble, kind, and enjoyable and down to earth people to work with. And he has QUITE a resume himself and has worked with a ton of people on a ton of things you’d recognize.
SUZI! :-P Our lucky night...
Do you think it was true that BS could sing and breathe through that nose at the same time? Johnny Mathis claimed he could?
Skyfall; a movie celebrating the rule of law and defeating terrorists and murders!
Actually Communists run it but homosexuals are useful to them. It destroys the moral fiber of the country.
I don’t watch the Oscars because I loathe hollyweird. That being said, I wish the naysayers would leave the thread alone just as I hate asshats coming into our Nascar threads.
If somebody doesn’t like a topic or thread, stay the hell off.
Thanks for the thread...won’t watch, but like to hear what people think about the movies so I know which to RENT in the future!
I'll be sure to warn Jennifer's mother next Sunday morning...
Isn't it past your bedtime yet?
Just wanted to jump in here...
I used to LOVE watching the Oscars: the gowns, the “inside” jokes from Bob Hope, the glamour...
Then the damn 60s and 70s happened and it all went to hell.
Am catching it a little tonight...beautiful gowns....that’s the only good part.
A song about boobs, a Teddy bear saying he does great sex, the show needs to be more “gay”....? Really?
C’mon people this is just sludge dressed up in a designer gown being run by a bell boy. No intelligence displayed, no literacy used, nothing clever at all...
I’m talking about the final product not the creators.
I like Adele’s music but that performance was weak.
That Teddy Bear skit was the low point of the entire evening.
NP... I'm trying... SOME of them are damn good movies..
There are a lot of bad book and music as well. Do you also not read or listen to music?
AMEN! I can tolerate the "Drive-By's"... I don't understand the ones that keep hanging around...
Sorry for the double post-been to the green room:)
Taratino wins for Original Screenplay...
One of the few movies I didn’t see... and, probably never will.
There was still a lot of liberal propaganda in films then, if one looked for it. Acting was considered an awful profession for many, many years.
