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. . .
This is why I don't want to watch this crap, but my wife has it on and is not giving an inch on the remote.
That was from best documentary category announced by Tom Hanks. Just before that was Best Short Subject Documentary ( the same sex marriage film) announced by the soldiers from Iraq.
How did they know who would win?
Hollywood.. F*CK OFF!
Who in the military made the announcement?
I'm just glad they didn't make them present the doc feature Oscar. Now that would have been awkward.
Right after what?
I’m sorry, I’ve been to the Dark Side, and I didn’t see the Country there.
It did suck, but not much of a surprise. I wonder if Hanks appreciated our troops getting set up?
And they wonder why no one is watching the oscars any more.
It wasn’t a coincidence.
And not a single person anywhere will say anything about it.
Tom Hanks is a Leftist. He goes in the bin with the rest of them.
They used our troops AGAIN.

Let em know how ya felt about it here.
You saw it too? I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t paying attention, then my wife tells me to look, because of course it’s notable that they were being respectful to the troops. The applause wasn’t too noticeable (and far less than later one when the guy made his dark side comment). So I’m like, well at least they did something nice. Then I hear the people who won the award talking about the movie and this woman is crying about how important it was to make this movie about same sex marriage or something. I’m like WHAT?! They had the military introduce an award given to a movie about homosexuality (knowing the don’t ask don’t tell Clinton policy), NO WAY! Then they follow up with anti-Iraq war anti WOT documentaries. Man. Just another chapter in a long story.
Hey Hollywierd, kiss this.
