I just thought I'd let my fellow freepers know that their favorite movie, Brokeback Mountain, just won Best Picture at the Golden Globes. My gf tells me when they accepted the award, they were "stunned!"
There should be an "L" after the "A" in "Aert." Sorry, I was ust so excited [/sarcasm off].
Well, isn't that special?!
Any movie that is protested by Conservatives gets moved to the head of the list by the anti-family values folks in Hollywierd.
Actually, I thought you misspelled "stunned" and really meant the word "stoned." It makes more sense that way! ;-)
Gosh, you think it will win the Oscar as well?
Best picture - BS
votes are from the foreign press assoc. who cares?
"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association was founded more than 60 years ago by a group of Los Angeles-based journalists working for overseas publications."
Well, of course they won. They'll sweep the Oscars too. Just like The Passion of the Christ DIDN'T! Nothing unexpected here. The only question is: will liberal institutions like Hollyweird EVER become a TEENSE more honest about their obvious liberalism? I guess no, but you never know; it's so blatant already.
We expected anything less by Hollywierd?
I thought they were "stuned." I know they were playing with their beebers.
well well, a beeber case.
I'm shocked, SHOCKED!
Hollyweird choose a bad movie (according to a co-worker) simply because it doesn't represent conservative values and pushes the homosexual agenda.
Maybe it's a different kind of film (I really know nothing about this stuff) but it wasn't even in the top 10 in the box office the past two weeks according to my USA Today. Is the movie selling well?
Now that I think about, why are FReepers helping hollyweird by watching this awards show!?
Goonie's gf is the source
This not a gag?
***why are FReepers helping hollyweird by watching this awards show!?****
Good question - especially when in my time zone a special two hour "24" was on at the same time.
The Golden Globes should be renamed the Br"ass" Balls... IMHO.
What a surprize, Hollywood got to give another big FU to the rest of America, by nominating and awarding this movie. Not that those awards matter anyway.
In other news, the supply of virgin wool is on the increase....
I predict the lowest rated Oscars ever.
I watched it. Curiosity I guess! Clooney was trying to make it political right from the start. Chris Rock and some other black person went on and on about MLK day. Other than that it wasn't very political at all. And none of the winners were a surprise and the program was boring. Geena Davis won of course. From the clip from her program she isn't much of an actress, certainly not convincing as a world leader. It's all about Hillary to have that female Prez program and then to award it of course.
I guess it's time to change "Martin Luther King Day" to "Martin Luther Queen Day". It's about time!
Felicity Hoffman won for "TransAmerica" about a male-to-female transgender.
Geena Davis won (softening us up for Hillary) for "Commander in Chief"
George "I coulda won it for Kerry" Clooney won for the anti-oil Syriana
It appears to be an actual pulp fiction magazine cover (with "Brokeback Mtn" text added).
And, the Moose.
If 'Brokeback' is was finely a crafted film as the buzz has been saying perhaps it deserved to win regardless of the subject matter. I think many folks are still carrying a grudge because The Passion, a film essentially done outside the system, was ignored by the insiders of Hollywood.
it doesn't matter how many awards bm wins, straight guys will never go see it, so it is doomed to lose money at the box office. (hint: dvd rentals won't be so hot except here in sf).
oscar can kiss my ***.
Let's wait for the "People's Choice" awards. Maybe that'll burst the gay agenda bubble. I'm sick of queer crap being forced onto the public. I think gays are just hetero-phobic.
I like your tag line...( )I'm new... I think that's what the phrase inside the brackets is called...Back to the newbie Sandbox I go...To learn mor FR lingo.
Thank you for sharing this with me! Sharing is just so "special".
I saw Broke Back Mountain. It was a good film but I can't see it being best picture. Maybe that's just me. I liked Crash a lot.
You are so right...
Please note that this award is connected and set up by the Hollywood FOREIGN press members. That's 'foreigners' folks and media, to boot! Do you think they represent the mainstream audience in the USA?
This is another jokey award show like the hundreds of others. Maybe one of the oldest but to win you only have to have the majority out of 100 or so votes possible.
Does this sound like a mouse or lion size public award vote?
Mostly mousey or more like it foreign rat.
I'd say that any award show for a movie is lame. Even the Academy Awards was originally just a publicity stunt to garner anti-union sentiment against SAG (or whatever it was called back then).
My advice: You think a movie is going to be decent, go see it. If you think it's not going to suit you, then don't see it.
I've made mistakes using this method, but it generally works.
That is SUCH a coincidence, since Gore Vidal is GAY, TOO!!
Hollywood in its self-centered arrogance is making itself irrelevant to the lives of mainstream America. They will continue like mindless lemmings in their suicidal march to financial collapse. Brokeback Mountain has as much value to those who provide the backbone of America's social order as a diamond ring in a sow's nose. Those who toiled to put the movie together could have better spent their time collectively puking their guts out in the toilet.
No no no you miss the point. Who cares how good a picture it was. What matters is that it pushed the already humongous envelope of public gay offensiveness.
A critic I greatly respect, Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal, (hardly a sucker for PC) picked Brokeback Mountain as the best film of the year. Which leads me to believe, remembering other critics of a more conservative bent (like Michael Medved) who did NOT dump on the movie
the way some on this forum have, that there is more to this movie than just a vehicle for the gay political agenda, regardless of what the actors themselves have said about it.
(Denny Crane: "I Don't Want To Socialize With A Pinko Liberal Democrat Commie. Say What You Like About Republicans. We Stick To Our Convictions. Even When We Know We're Dead Wrong.")
One does not need to get on step ladder nor do you feed a horse from behind. Sadly, the left pushes it's agenda.
Could this be Gay Trails?
C'mon, the whole thing was predestined. Just like Tom Hanks for winning the Oscar for "Philadelphia". This comes as no shock to regulars on this forum, but there is a tremendous liberal pro-homosexuality clique that runs things in Whollyweird. I guarantee it that if Mel Gibson had made "Passion of the Christ" with some sort of pro-gay theme, his flick would have won Oscars too.
Wacky Trails... to you... until we meet again
Yes, the Gay Mafia!
The sodomites honored a movie that turns them on. Big whoop.
