Right after that, a documentary against the Iraq war and GITMO are announced in a second award category. Is this outrageous, or is it me? Having the military introduce a film on same sex issues given the don't ask don't tell policy, and then have it followed by anti Iraq war, anti WOT films is political and using the troops as pawns IMHO.
Quote from the winner:
Let's hope we move this country away from the dark side. . .
Thank you so much for posting this thread. I was waiting for somebody to boo...but I should have known since Tom Hanks was the presenter.
I wonder how many Oscars have been handed out for those posing as a military hero.
Freepers expected it.
Ok, of all the categories to have them announce for, you choose the one with a pro homosexual message and then follow it with a category including 2 anti war movies + a Michael Moore movie (3/4, 75% chance of it being anti bush winner). Please, if they really didn’t know who was going to win, they still gambeled well. There’s no way you can say this was purely conincidental. It doesn’t matter who won.
Taxi to the Darkside :
I saw it, and was first pissed at the weak applause for the troops, then furious as the anti-Military “documentaries” were lauded.
When that puke who gave his little “let’s move away from the darkside” speech finished, I almost threw my remote through the TV.
Hollywood = scum.
The troops didn’t know, and neither did we. But the scheduler and the Academy directors KNEW which documentaries were nominated and which ones won. They KNEW it, and that was precisely why they chose that category to have the troop introduce. It was absolutely intentional.
Oscars??? Bah, I watched the NHRA on ESPN2, then went to work.
Did the GIs give the oscar for the homosexual movie or the Taxi to the Darkside movie? Either one is bad, but I’m not clear about what happened since I didn’t see it.
Which ever movie it was, there is no question in my mind it was set up by the Leftists in Hollywood to make our military look bad.
How could a film about same sex marriage lose in Hollywood?
Since they knew there were only 4 nominees for short documentary, they knew the chances were 50-50 it would be the same-sex film that won or Sari's Mother, a film about an Iraqi kid suffering from AIDS who can't get treatment because the American soldiers destroyed the healthcare system.
Or as the Oscar's website summarizes it: "On a farm in central Iraq, a mother struggles to care for her ten-year-old son, Sari, who is dying of AIDS. As the boy's condition worsens, his mother must deal with a health care system that has fallen into chaos under the American occupation."
The pigs of Hollywood know exactly what they are doing: Don't be a sap.
They just can’t help themselves..their industry is in the toilet. Tonight’s awards will have the lowest ratings of all time...And the STILL think they are smarter than everyone else in the Country. But I don’t get upset anymore. If they DIDN’T do something like this, then I’d be surprised. How can you be angry when someone acts totally in character.
This is still America. It’s his legally gotten gain to leave to whom he likes.
What’s the Academy Awards?
The soldiers were introduced by Tom Hanks. Via satellite from Iraq, each one presented the nominees and Oscar for best Short Subject Documentary. A film about same sex marriage won.
Immediately next Tom Hanks introduced the nominees and presented the Oscar for Best Documentary, many films that were anti war/American. The winner was a documentary accusing our troops of killing a taxi driver in Afghanistan.
Hollywood equals Commie Pinkos.
Was is and shall be.
Communism kills. Boycott the beast. Defund the Left.
