    After the Golden Globes, Director's Guild, SAG and Producer's Guild awards WGAS about the Oscars really? I mean how many fucking awards does one fucking industry need to give itself every year for fuck sakes? Am I the crazy one here?:dontknow:

    Do you even remember who won the Oscar for Best Movie Score 2 years ago? No you don't. That's because generally people dont really give a fuck either. The Oscars were created back in the early 30's to rebrand a product. And then the "sheeple" would go "Gosh it won an Oscar we better go see it." It's like Coke giving Coke awards for best SOFT DRINK.. :facepalm:

    So to you awards show aficionados I say cudos.. How you can watch 3 hours of vapid self-congratulation is a skill I simply do not posses.

    Though the Oscar's are a big bloated ceremony the people who work behind the scenes in the movies, editors, sound, costuming and others really appreciate being honored. Outside of the industry you wouldn't know any of them if they walked down the street. They don't make millions of dollars a year. People who do animation and special effects toil long hours in front of a computer screen. The motion picture industry aren't all Adam Sandler's
    earning $50 million a year making shitty films every nine months or so.

    The Oscars lost me when "Dances With Wolves" beat out "Goodfellas" for best picture, and Costner beat out Scorcese for best director. :facepalm: :mad:

    And this year, to have a movie like "Silver Linings Playbook" nominated in almost every major category..................................:facepalm:. It wasn't a terrible movie, but it was a safe distance from any kind of "brilliant".

    Ironically, "Flirting With Disaster" was "Citizen Kane" next to "Silver Linings Playbook".

    Fuck Hollywood! :mad:

    As irrelevant as Playboy Magazine. But not as irrelevant as Howard Stern. Yet

    "Silver Linings Playbook" was produced by the Weinstein Company - Harvey is literally a heavyweight every year at the Oscars.

    And as you know, the same guy directed "Flirting With Disaster" and "Silver Linings Playbook," which is why Beth willed her wide body into this dress to go to the premiere as a "remember me" to the Director ...

    ah yes, the self-congratulatory vomit fest they call the award show. it's had its place in time much like the beauty contest before it. next to go is the chat show.

    You kids can post where ever you like.. All I am saying is how many fucking awards does one industry need to give ITSELF every fucking year? Seriously.

    Personally I don't give two flying fucks because "Cloud Atlas" was 10,000 times better than "Silver Linings Playbook" and it has Zero nominations.
