McCarthy was right about them.
Oh, if you only knew... ;-)
I don’t listen to modern music. I do read, classic books, history, when I can afford it. I also own some movies, mostly westerns, values movies.
When did I say it's been all hunky dory? What I said, is that I haven't seen FR fail to handle a live thread in the last few years, except for maybe one time when it choked.
Heck, I've seen all the outages and break downs too. I've been on here every day, since about 2005. I just haven't seen what you claim. One would have to be an occasional visitor to not have noticed that the site's been needing a hardware upgrade for a long time now.
Thankfully, JohnRob has finally done that, and will soon be doing more.
Dustin Hoffmann to Piers Morgan: God Bless You For What Youre Saying About Gun Control
Feb. 24, 2013 9:30pm Mytheos Holt
Hollywood is known to be a hotbed of liberal sentiment, and the Oscars are often nakedly political events, in terms of the selection of nominees and winners. Still, naked politics during red carpet interviews, which are more often occasions for bland discussions of clothing choices, is something of a rarity.
But that didnt stop Dustin Hoffmann from explicitly endorsing a political position in his red carpet interview with CNNs Piers Morgan. Mediaite caught the video:
I was watching you on television, and I think you said something about turning fifty, Hoffmann said to Morgan.
Im not turning 50. Im 47! Im turning 48, Morgan protested.
I know. Nevertheless, that means I could be your father, Hoffmann joked. So treat me with a modicum of respect.
Have you had a little shot of tequila before you came out? Morgan asked, laughing.
No, no, I thought Id have a little bit of vodka this time, Hoffmann responded.
A little pleasant banter about the feeling of being nominated for an Oscar seven times followed, after which Morgan asked the question that touched off Hoffmanns outburst.
Do you still get starstruck? Morgan asked.
I feel extraordinary that Im talking to you! Hoffmann replied. And God bless you for what youre saying about gun control!
Well, thank you. Ill have to have you onto my show
Here ya go, on the Red Capet no less.
sometime, Morgan chuckled.
Yes! Hoffmann said.
Morgan has been one of the fiercest and most unrelenting critics of gun rights since the shooting at Newtown, clashing with everyone from Breitbarts Ben Shapiro to radio host Alex Jones on the subject. One feels rather safe in assuming that Hoffmann would be a fairly light easy experience, given those previous experiences.
They were serving Woodford Reserve in my green room... :-)
You support those who wish to destroy America and our values. Where’s the humor in that?
I am happy to announce that neither I or anyone in my family has spent one red cent in a movie theater this year.The trash and claptrap put out by the likes of the Hollywood trash is not worth one red cent
Well at least he did mention “God” so at least that’s something.
“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”
Ladies and gentleman, FR’s answer to the 13 yos on Youtube who post comments on Led Zeppelin songs complaining that they were born in the wrong generation.
“Has Seth MacFarlane made a Trig Palin joke yet? Again, burn in hell, Hollywood.”
Yeh he’s basically an idiot. When I first heard he was going to host the Oscars, I was like *yawn*
YEAH...some people dropping into this thread seem oblivious to its purpose...sheesh. Like peeing in the pool at a party. It’s ridiculous. I may not like much of Hollywood, but we are surrounded by it, and I need to be entertained a LITTLE bit, so I come here to find out what mostly conservative people think of the films out there. You can pretend they don’t exist, but that’s like pretending Democrats don’t exist.
That Teddy Bear skit was the low point of the entire evening.
not to mention that relative to Mark Wahlberg, that bear was Laurence Olivier.
Jane had her neck fixed.:)
BEST DIRECTOR Ang Lee.. Life of Pi
Why not? The REAL winner wasn’t nominated.
I haven't tuned that crap in during any of the past 25-30 years (maybe more.)
Maybe once or twice every 10 years they accidentally make one movie that is a tad better than pure trash. Once every 20 years they make something worth buying - but not good enough to get me excited about going to a theater to see it.
You have to separate the art and the artist. None of the films this year are propaganda. McCarthy said nothing about Hollywood at all. Why spread that myth?
Jane has has EVERYTHING fixed...
Except the most important thing...
Sorry, I’m not watching so I wouldn’t know. Not meant as a slight to you.
When they separate the politics from the art.
Maybe you and your Oscar friends, note it is not spelled with a "FR", are completely enchanted with a product of progressive liberals that push their anti-American, anti-Christain, pro-homosexual, violent, drug culture down out throats everyday.
Get a f'n life. I fear your attachment to Hollywood borders on coveting and idolatry.
Hint: Both of those are sins.
I saw both Argo and Les Miserables. I liked both those movies, but I've never understood Tarantino movies so I had no interest in seeing his Mandingo Jango movie this year. I do still want to see Lincoln, though.
Jane is a disgusting Commie leftist..figures Hollywood would praise her and cheer her
Bartlet: If the Oscars were like that, I'd watch.
Site is getting kinky.
Did you think I said it doesn't? I know it does.
What I said, is, that FR has handled most live threads in the last few years without choking up. I'm sure I haven't been on every live thread in that time, but I've been on most of the biggies, and it held up without breaking.
Now, is the site long overdue for a serious upgrade? You betcha it is, and I'm glad that JohnRob is finally getting that done.
Products. Like toothpaste. They even call them there in Hollywood “entertainment vehicle products” or maybe “entertainment product vehicles”, I forget which, and you’re not paying attention, and call this garbage “art”.
All I've claimed is: I've been unable to participate in a LIVE THREAD here in a LONG time... it's just been TOO SLOW, I give up...
Election night was a good example.. they HAD one... I didn't play in it very long.
I HOPE that'sa thing of the past...
“I used to LOVE watching the Oscars: the gowns, the inside jokes from Bob Hope, the glamour...
Then the 60s and 70s happened and it all went to hell.”
That is real nice, old man. I suppose you should realize that it was always like this and that they just hid it better in the past. And Bob Hope? Come on, he was as dirty as it gets, it’s just that his jokes went over most people’s heads.
People who think there was no smut or commie liberals in Hollywood 50-60 years ago are not exactly bright.
BEST ACTRESS GOES TO
You do realize there are people on this site who are in the industry?
Sure there were, but they weren't running the show like they are today.
“I enjoyed watching the thread. Kinda like the Jews cheering the Nazis.”
Now, that there is funny.
OKC is getting blown out.
Flipped over to ABC just in time to see some gal trip on the way to the stage.
I am glad I am not watching. SomeCallMeTim, you love this stuff. What do you think about an American Traitor Bitch being allowed on American TV instead of being hung for being a traitor?
Have you watched “JUSTIFIED?” You may like it...on weekly - not a movie.
McCarthy took down Commies in DC who were friends and contacts of Hollywood. They then went after McCarthy. Btw, he was right on every count.
Emmanuelle Riva didn’t win so off goes the TV.
(And I’ve seen all of the movies in this category)
Have you seen Silver Linings Playbook? I plan to see it. My Psychology degree means I should like it.
Windflier is correct.
We’ve had several successful LIVE thread since election night, the most recent: SOTU.
WOW. What fun you must be at parties.
Daniel Day Lewis for LINCOLN
FIRST three time male Oscar winner, ever!
You underestimate the cumulative effect of day-after-day, seeing insanely obnoxious, condescending Hollywood elitists on talk-shows all across the dial, preaching homo marriage, worshipping Obama, pushing global-warming crap, making vile Bush/Palin jokes, and spitting on the faces of anyone out in mid-america who holds traditional values.
I used to just ignore them. But day-after-day, year-after-year of hearing these anti-American leftist scumbags, who themselves have hugely contributed to dragging the country and its culture into such a noxious sewer, I’ve had it with these damned cretins. White-hot hatred.
“Oh... Now, I see why we have so many negative ninnies.. NOTHING ELSE is going on at FR tonight...”
In order to post here, you’re required to be edgy and hate all of Hollywood and popular culture except old reruns of Leave It To Beaver on TV Land. ;)
I’m indifferent to it anyway. Buncha druggie...eh, not even worth hating on.
A Republican wins! Abraham Lincoln.
I'd vote to hang her...
I don't watch her in anything.. What's your point?
Uh huh huh.....you said "Beaver."
Gawd I would have paid good money to see the guy who accepted that award for Argo thank the CIA for declassifying the files.
