Go James Franco and 127 hours. What an incredible movie. I liked the Social Network too but 127 hours was better.
I agree. I tend to be drawn to true life stories. I thought all of the movies nominated for best pix were excellent, but each in their own way. It seems unfair to have them compete in a way
I feel Inception was an incredibly good movie and should have a different category.(a Category for Special effects maybe? ) Many people didn’t care for it.
After my first viewing I scratched my head.... hmmm... what the heck was that about. I got the general gist but it was a bit cloudy, shall we say?
After many more views so much fell into place & I found the genius of the extremely intricate story line & really appreciated all the special effects and the editing which were both astounding.
I now own the Blu Ray Disc (I recently was gifted for V day a new Vizio TV & Vizio Blu Ray)
Well bottom line for movies is the box office & later the DVD, BluRay, netflex etc sales. This is where people REALLY vote
My introduction to all of these movies will be the Oscar Show, since I haven’t seen any of them.
I like it!
And the reward for most people freed from tyranny goes to ... George W Bush!!!
And the reward for best Supreme Court appointments goes to ... George W Bush!!!
And the “Do You Miss Me Yet?” reward for best ex-President goes to ... George W Bush!!!
reward = award, d’oh.
(and dont worry about award/reward). Hopefully the grammar, word use, spelling cops wont be here with us)
Tis okay. I have friends who wait for Oscar wins to determine what they will view if still at theaters or rent later.
After the final awards many of the movies are returned to the theaters. The big , epic speicial effect movies are IMHO best viewed at a theater. Story line shows are okay on your home systems
You are most welcome here!
Waiting to hear if Libya is brought up by any of the actors.
I thought Gadhafi’s killing spree might make a cause celebre....I doubt Iran will, but it should
I despise many of these actors and the films they nominate for Oscars. The vast majority of these unworthy actors are nothing but left-wing activists and Dem voters, while many of the films nominated each year push some left-wing idea.
I STILL want “ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN” to win best picture!!
This shows you how much i care, i didn’t even know Academy Awards was today.
Had to watch INCEPTION twice to get all the dream changes....

I don’t follow. The Oscars are an industry award that has been around for about 85 years. Most Best Picture winners tend to be on the conservative side.
Actors only nominate other actors. Only four of the Oscars go to actors.
Your “hate the Oscars” thread is cute! I can’t help but look forward to the big show, though.
Some of my guesses:
King’s Speech (best pic)
Toy Story (best anim)
Inception (vis eff)
How to Train Dragon (score)
Alice in Wonderland (costume)
It’s a tough year for predictions.
Are you saying that Hollywood is conservative?
And the only focus is so-called “Best Pictures”?
And that the Left would have no problem with the scenario I presented?
I’m saying your analogy doesn’t hold because AMPAS is often rather conservative. Look at the Best Picture choices. They are what people remember.
I looked at the actors and the movies and I discovered I’d never heard of most and I don’t care. Kiss off, Hollywood.
Natalie Portman (with Annette Bening as a possible upset)
And as for Best Supporting Actor and Actress, I’m with Bill Murray, Who cares?
For every minute you can remotely identify as conservative, I am confident that I can easily show 2 minutes that are easily liberal.
My analogy is about awards night, you are lost in some imaginary detail.
Every minute of the show or every minite of Oscar winning films?
Keep up with cinema much?
Yup. Just like Bubonic Plague.
There’s lots of bad books and music out there too. Don’t read or listen to music either?
Most observers would agree that Oscar night is a big night for Liberals. Your attempt to narrow it down to a Conservative moment is a huge fail, and suspect in my eyes.
You said you don’t get it, I accept that.
Whoopi: Republicans are so stupid. [the crowd laughs] I hate Republicans. [the audience laughs] Republicans are so stupid. [the audience laughs]
Suffice to say, most contemporary music has ‘way too much bass and the lyrics are unmentionable in polite company. Some of it sounds like two tomcats with tails tied together and thrown over a clothes line.
The music field does have very good pieces and vocals, but mostly not by the current group of performers. Lots of good listening to choose from besides contemporary.
I like techno thrillers that are well written and plausible. Vince Flynn and Tom Clancy get it right 99% of the time. I like the sci-fi masters from the golden age of sci-fi writing and older fantasy writers; current sci-fi and fantasy writers are very hit and miss; mostly miss. I like most nonfiction about tech, historical, and political stuff. Human behavior is remarkably consistent over the centuries and era to era. Nonfiction, not so much.
So, what's your genre?
Cool thread. I love the academy awards, maybe because I was born in Hollywood. I love the clothes and I love ripping the stupid liberal comments the actors make, and it’s just plain fun to watch.
Sadly, my son has a huge athletic competition during Oscar time today so I have to watch it tomorrow! Bummer.
I assume a lot of the ladies have been scrambling in the past few days to find wraps for their gowns. It’s a beautiful sunny day but freezing (for us) with a high of 50 in LA today, which means that by 3 pm it will be less than 50. Highly unusual for here so we are freezing. Tonight it will get down into the 30s again.
Actually, the Oscars were derided by the 1960s counterculture and defended by people like John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart as an American insitution. Lots of Freepers enjoy them. Yet on every Oscar thread every year the killjoys show up without fail. Boredom I’m guessing.
Don’t really have a genre. Whatever’s good.
man...i loved that movie
it felt like you were right there...like a subtle Walter Hill movie
another good thing is they had to actually act
no help from the cinematography or costumes or momentum
One can enjoy the Oscars.
and still get irritated by the lib preening...Sasheen Littlefeather remember and so forth
and know that yes Hollywood is still overwhelmingly libtarded X10
few creative folks who aren't liberals I've known in my life..a few writers here and there and Ted Nugent
Oscar hated Wayne ...they considered him a crazy right winger..they just gave him True Grit because he was such an icon...the critics and media ridiculed his Oscar..claimed he just played himself
I was only 13 but remember thinking hell...isn't that what all great scene possessors do
anyhow I'm glad Dolly ran this thread ..I actually will watch more than usual this year...True Grit and Bones got my attention...neither was lib loaded or PC...thankfully...maybe one day they will learn out there
but you do have a point...the Hippie-Yippie left in 60s and early 70s thought Oscar was establishment...Easy Rider did not have many fans for example and much of the youth culture was scorned by the Old Guard..as well it deserved it
PS...sometimes freepers just like to be assjack..they can't help it..too many here don't even like babies really...just sour folks...go to any tragedy thread and invariably there will be glee about how stupid the folks who died or were harmed were....it's just a snarky nasty side to some here
Ignore them or tell them to go to Hell
We have seen the following:
The King’s Speech-Excellent. Best Picture, Actor and Supporting Actor.
The Social Network-Very good, not on a par with the one above though.
True Grit-Very good. Best Supporting Actress.
The Black Swan-Didn’t care for it at all.
*placemarker* thanks for posting.
It’s definitely going to be a good night for The King’s Speech (Best Pic, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, at least), but True Grit was more enjoyable to watch, at least for me. And I just saw The Social Network last night, and the kid did a terrific job playing Zuckerberg. Aaron Sorkin, while a liberal dbag, writes dialog better than anyone out there and he should win for adapted screenplay.
I try to be polite to everyone. Wayne didn;t win till later but was an Oscar fixture for years. He was on the ceremony months before he died.
