Skip to comments.Oscar Performances and The Incredible Lightness of Being in Hollywood
Posted on 02/23/2015 7:56:53 AM PST by NOBO2012
I dont know about you, butt I needed a little break from politics and the real world and what better place to find respite from reality than in Hollywood? So I made myself a martini (gin, dry, with a twist) and watched the Oscars. Thankfully I hadnt seen any of the movies nominated except Whiplash which was a big, big hit at last years Sundance Festival. I thought it was crappy butt then I guess in Hollywood a movie about a sadistic music teacher is considered a nice change of pace.
Surprisingly, most of the frocks this year werent as hideous as theyve become over the recent past. In fact, some of them were quite attractive:
Jennifer Hudson and Rosamund Pike
While others were, well, interesting;
Like Annas angel wings, and Gwyneth with that humongous rosebud plopped on her shoulder. Dear, dear Gwyneth; perhaps a little more conscious uncoupling might be in order. That rosebud appears to weigh even heavier on your delicate shoulders than it did on Orson Welles.
Overall though, the show was pretty dull and there were no big surprises; the winners were long winded and American Sniper didnt win in any category other than largest box office revenues.
Clint and Bradley Cooper
I distracted myself by noting some uncanny resemblances among the glitterati. Take Marion Cotillard for example: I couldnt get over how much she looked like former Money Honey Maria Bartiromo:
Marion and Maria: separated at birth?
And take a gander at Jeff Goldblum I havent seen him in years and I swear, give him a cigar and he could pass for Milton Berle!
Twin sons of a different mother?
And then there was this freaky duo: Dakota Johnson and her Mother, the actress formerly known as Melanie Griffith. Just yikes!
And speaking of freaky things, Lady Gaga performed a medley of Julie Andrews songs from The Sound of Music for no apparent reason other than her publicist was able to buy Gaga a timeslot on the interminable program in order to bolster her lagging sales. Surprisingly she sang rather well, butt she sure doesnt look much like Julie Andrews, nor does she make a very good nun.
She actually looks more like Hills, if shed slap a little red lipstick on those sour lips.
Come to think of it, Lady Gaga looks a lot like Uncle Milty too!
Get that babe a cigar!
Anyway, there were, of course, the usual political agendas being beaten by Oscar winners, just in case the audience wasnt already bored to tears.
John Legend won for the theme song from Selma and took the opportunity to highlight how much Black Lives Matter:
We know that right now the struggle for freedom and justice is real, he said. We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than were under slavery in 1850.
Hmmm. If I werent on a break from politics today I would certainly ponder on that for awhile.
And then Patricia Arquette, who won best supporting actress in something or other, chose to use her likely only trip to the Oscar podium to lead the charge against the Republicans War on Women:
It is time for us. It is time for women. The truth is even though we sort of feel like there is, there are huge issues that are at play and really do affect women. Its time for all the women in America, and the men who love women and all the gay people and people of color weve all fought for to fight for us now.
Got that? I think shes also enlisted in Lady Ms War on Food army:
So there you have it: a whole evening filled with a bunch of vacuous people glad handing, fawning and pandering to another bunch of vacuous, fawning, panderers. All the while the booze, drugs and food flow magically and everyone gets a looty bag of gifts to take home; come to think of it, thats just another normal day around here. Well, except that Neil Patrick Harris doesnt usually run around in his tighty whities. That honors reserved for somebody who shall remain nameless.

That “Glory” song they did, oy veh I almost cringed into a fetal position under the chair watching that. Rapper Common rapping about how “We have to raise our hands in Ferguson” and then all the tears....oy oy oy cringe cringe...They should give warnings before they broadcast that, the cheese was just oozing out the TV.
He forgot to say the last part:
"...because of the Democrat engineered socialist Holocaust"
What a classy production. /s
Great job on your post!
The Incredible Lightness of Being
My wife made me watch this movie years ago. I still have not forgiven her for that. It’s the only movie I’ve ever watched that after it was over I said, “What was this movie about?”
IT SUCKED! Almost as much as listening to Barry Soetoro speak.
I am so happy I didn’t watch. I don’t want to have to buy a new TV.
What’s with the homosexual host coming out almost nude??? How much lower can Hollywood idiots sink????
I turned the whole thing off, thankfully, when Duggy came out in his underwear. Like they say in Vaudeville, when you can’t make them laugh pull your pants down.
I noticed also how short the guy’s goat was. Your coat length should be as long knuckles, otherwise your butt hangs out. He should have been wearing a regular sized coat rather than a “short.”
Harris was mediocre. Stupid puns, jokes that thudded, and coming onstage in his underwear. Not funny or classy.
Nothing new. I remember when Sachen Littlefeather (sp?) accepted the Oscar for Brando during the American Indian Movement of the 1970s and George C Scott was a no show.
At least Bob Hope kept it classy.
Yeah, but didn’t Lena Olin get naked?
Love it! Always love your blog! I missed the propagandist awards, as always. I never see movies, except “American Sniper.” Been on a Horlywood boycott for about 15 years.
Why would anyone watch this filthy bilge?
Yesterday someone posted an article by Max Tegmark, in which he argues against the concept of infinity.
I submit Hollywood as a counter argument.
In answer to your question: there is no limit.
They will go ever lower and lower, as long as humanity exists. These human scum will sink ever lower.
The films and performances though are worthy though. Cant take the quality away from that, even if the award season itself is sickening.
