Posted on 07/26/2013 12:02:51 PM PDT by drewh
In a breathless puff from Roger Friedman of Showbiz411.com, Oprah Winfrey is predicted to win an Oscar for her performance as the White House butlers wife in the upcoming feature film The Butler starring Forrest Whitaker. Friedman hyperventilates:
Oprah is simply off the charts mesmerizing as Gloria. Its as if shed been acting this whole time. (Some will say she has been, but I disagree.)
Among the many powerful performances in this landmark movie, Winfrey jumps out because of her long absence from the screen.
People in our showingwhich was a very good cross-section of black and white, young and old people were crying through this movie.
And Oprah gets a scene stealing Oscar moment that is going to take her right into every awards show.
If I had to bet now, Id say she wins Best Supporting Actress. Shes that good.
Then, to bolster his credibility as a prognosticator, Friedman cites a couple of liberal stalwarts:
And by the way, among the audience were none other than Mike Nichols and Diane Sawyer. Mike gave the movie a hearty thumbs up on the way out. He wasnt the only one.
The question arises: if Oprah wins the Oscar after not attending Barack Obamas 2013 inauguration, will Michelle Obama still present it?

Have you seen the Cast list ? They stopped Campaigning for Obama just long enough to make this movie
One hears of all the box office failures this year.
I suppose that means there is not much competition, and if you pick an Oscar winner like you pick a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, in anticipation of greatness, then we all might win a little toy statue, signifying nothing but political correctness.
the movie trailer looks like an Obama campaign commerical http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZ4xDTz8Avc
Of course she will win..Isn’t it a rule at least one black has to win..I do not watch that Oscar stuff any more..The most no talent people win..Have fun Hollywood..
She probably will win a Nobel Prize, also, as it is just being given away to ANY Black person they can think of.....
Nobel Prize, lol!
I'll be they were, and the white ones were no doubt female, and the same types who used to scream in hysterical adoration in Winfrey's studio audience.
Well, there’s another movie to stir up hatred of the South-———KKK robes and burning crosses, even!
I am so damned sick and tired of these movies and TV shows that portray blacks as long-suffering saints. I’m fed up with the pot-stirring and the utter refusal to let the past lie. I don’t care what happened 50 or 60 years ago. Just shut up and get over it, already.
Dang near gagged when I saw the promo clip
Sounds like a real nail biter .... action packed from the get go ..... snoooooooooooze.
I think Oprah may win an Oscar for this movie. Did you see her slap her son after he said something nasty to her father The Butler. I saw the coming attractions at the theater when I saw “The Heat”. Wowsa it was quite a slap.

lol. This is a true story about a Butler who was with 10 Presidents.
I don't care if it's about the personal maid to Mrs. Santa Claus. It's exactly what I said Watch the trailer.
Haven’t you heard? This is black America now.
How many CGI giant robots explode?
They still give Oscars? Why?
