Skip to comments.5 Things I Hate about the Oscars!!!
Posted on 02/24/2009 4:50:49 AM PST by gopmike.com
To my Conservative Friends:
I almost never pay attention when my wife has on the Oscars, but as I tapped away on my keyboard Sunday night, I could not help myself look over at the TV and ask my wife, "How unwatchable is this show"???
So I decided to write about the things that I found most annoying about the Sham that is the Academy Awards. However, I am not going to go after the low-hanging fruit of the liberal monologues from the likes of Sean Penn (ugliest man alive) or Meryl Screech. That would be too easy....
I want to put out some of the less obvious things that are more than annoying...
(Excerpt) Read more at gopmike.com ...
the Oscars have become a popularity contest for queers, communists, perverts and all things un-American.
Yes, Heath Ledger was outstanding in “Dark Knight,” and he very much deserved the recognition. No, he was not a saint, by any stretch of the imagination.
That being said, I didn’t watch the Oscars at all, and I was able to get up the next day, check the internet listings of who won, and that was that. Why it’s still being televised is beyond me.
Only FIVE things? You were much too kind!
A over indulgent and narcissitic culture gathers together for a night of even more self love, what could be worse to watch then a 4 hr self love fest?
Sean Penn winning a award for a movie that absolutely no one watched?
You could put the viewers of “Milk’ and “Che” into a large high school football stadium...and yet that is the height of their professional careers?
No wonder they are bleeding money in LA-LA land.
The show has become such a PC fest that it has all the suspense of a Globetrotter game. You have the 5 worst movies of the year that nobody, even the actors themselves like, listed as the best. You know the biggest homosexual struggle story will win. The only suspense is what color ribbon they all will be wearing. Who didn’t know the Milk story would win for PC SoddomWould reasons.
Now they can sit in their mansions and let the world know they care.
Pray for America and Our Troops
Milk has done 5 million paid admissions and counting.
I hated Sean Penn’s sanctimonious speech about how playing a gay man in a positive light takes such courage.
Sean, when you make a movie showing Al Qaeda or Islam or Arab governments in a negative light.....that’s a risk. Or if you make a movie showing a democrat in a negative light....that’s a risk.
Presenting a gay man in a positive light nowadays is about as risky as saying you love ‘apple pie.’ Get off your high horse.
“Why its still being televised is beyond me”
Because sponsers pick up the costs, 30 + million people watch, and ABC charges 1 million + per ad.
Is it really beyond you? Are you this stupid?
5 things? I only hate 2:
1 - The actors/actresses/parrots
2 - Their opinions, political and otherwise
Presenting a gay man in a positive light nowadays is about as risky as saying you love apple pie.
Get off your high horse.
Ding ding ding we have a winnah!
they did suck. even jack nicholson didn’t wanna attend.
As I say, a bunch of leftists congratulating other leftists for their leftist propaganda.
For comparison, The Dark Knight is at $533,062,050.
I suspect, though I haven’t done the research to prove it, that the true value to the United States of any institution is in inverse proportion to the number of awards it gives itself. Hollywood and the Main Stream Media come immediately to mind.
let’s throw in the gaudy hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewels- all borrowed
Are not these walking billboards rich enough to own their own jewelry? Does flaunting borrowed jewelry really help sell the jewelry?
I don’t watch it, either, but it should have been dominated by ‘Gran Torino’ and ‘The Wrestler’.Jmho.
5 million...or about the concession sales at a Michigan v Ohio State football game...that’s pathetic.
Hmmm 5 million...10 bucks a ticket...500k people or so?
What is that .23% of the US populace?
Never heard of it.
#2 - The Old Lady Cleavage - Don't get me wrong - If a woman has the goods, nothing wrong with flaunting it. However, once these ladies reach a certain age, let's face it - Gravity has won!!! And its time to cover up... I mean really - nothing is more repulsive that an old bag trying to look young and showing more than we need to see...
Rumor has it Aretha got a rose tattoo on one of her breasts when she was younger.
If so, it is now long-stemmed.
I haven’t heard it mentioned but there was a part where Tina Fey was helping to present an award. Since I am hearing impaired I use closed captioning and read what she was saying because there was a lot of audience noise. She introduced herself as Sarah Palin and then said some obviously stupid stuff. I don’t think the TV audience heard it but the stars in the audience were really laughing hard.
Tina Fey has turned into such a joke.
You seem a pleasant sort.
Don’t know if this would be to your taste, but may I respectfully make some suggestions?
They’re not kid-stuff and some of the language and situations are distinctly adult (as opposed to childish-adult), but I was massively entertained and there’s hours of goods here:
Dead Like Me
State of Play
Lately, I’ve been scouring the back lists at NetFlix. Things I’ve found: Yasuhiro Ozu (brilliant Japanese family drama), Charlie Chan, and a fascinating collection of Yiddish films from the ‘30’s and ‘40’s, many starring Molly Picon. There’s plenty more and I get ‘em for about 25/month. I’m seriously considering dropping cable altogether and just letting Internet in.
Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
Sophie Scholl was arrested and then executed by guillotine by the Third Reich for distributing anti-Nazi leaflets at her college campus. For this she was beheaded along with several of the other brave young God fearing people of the “White Rose”, an underground Nazi resistance movement. This is a dramatization of that event, it is a movie that will not leave you and will have you thinking about it for days after viewing. I highly recommend this film. I found myself drawn into this movie like few other movies will do. This is brilliant stuff. The tension becomes almost unbearable. The depiction of Freisler (The judge), which might seem over the top, but is quite consistent with accounts and actual film clips of the trial, maybe even understated. He was diabolical, tyrannical and very hot tempered.
After reading many rave reviews from regular people, I ordered this 2005 movie over the Holidays from Netflix. It was sooooo good, I just had to purchas a copy
Watch the Trailer:
The White Rose
Go f**k yourself. Is that the response you were looking for, dick?
