    The academy awards weren't quite as gay then as they are now.

    I was going to say the exact same thing. I bet they didn't have the stupid gay over the top music either.

    Wouldn't it be cool to know where all of these Oscars are now? They each probably have a story to tell.

    more glamourous yes, but in the end it's a bunch of really rich folks patting each other on the back for real easy work. would they give ordinary people the time of day in real world situations unless a camera were on them? not likely. fuck 'em all.

    Love it!
    (And there ain't nothin' easy about being an entertainer! I'm an actress, just shot a music video Thursday, and am still exhausted. Better than working at Walmart, yes, but I went and got the training I needed to do this.)

    No. It was only Hattie McDaniel. She was the "Precious" of the 20th Century.

    Why are some people so jealous of people at the top of their craft?
