    Oscars: the Hollywood Prom

    We all know the Oscars are the Hollywood Prom, you win because your Dad let's you have everyone over to the house for keggers....

    So any surprises yet?

    What about the host, creepy shadow figures, blah blah....

    I was not surprised by the Best Supporting Actor/Actress wins, but was surprised by best foreign language film (I though Pan was a lock), and was hoping Robot Gore wouldn't win for Inconvenient Truth....although I support global warming

    I like that so many different countries and foreign film makers are finally being given props....I can only take so many American big budget stinkers....

    What are these "Oscar's" you speak of?
    May the force be with you.

    I lost all respect for this when Eminem won one.

    And since Danny Elfman has never gotten a musical nod of any sort from these snobs.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'm glad The Departed won. This marks the third time that my favorite film of a particular year won the Best Picture Oscar. The first two were Gladiator and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

    But I completely agree with Chux about the Danny Elfman thing. This year, the "Best Score" category was filled with scores that weren't memorable. Which is a bit of an oxymoron. Why would you acknowledge a mediocre and forgettable score for a movie? Why do you think John Williams won so many of these? Because his scores were memorable. Do you think that the score for "Babel" will be famous? I didn't think so. All of the Danny Elfman music for Tim Burton's films have been excellent. And they've been used in countless trailers. Also, he did a great job on the score for "Spider-Man".

    And the only reason Eminem won was because the other songs that year sucked.

    Thank God it's over....very predictable winners, very uneventful (where's fatty mcMoore with his Americans suck documentaries?)....better luck next time O'Tool....



    SK99, the Oscars are where a powerful and wealthy film maker (typically white until recently) hands another powerful and wealthy film maker a statue that says "good job sport." Then that person makes about 20 horrible films after finally winning excusing it to, "hell, I won an Oscar didn't I?" Typically a woman wins one when she either 1.) strips nude and bangs Billy Bob Thorton, or 2.) gains 60 pounds and plays a lesbian with some sort of obvious prosthetics. A man usually wins when he either plays a sadistic sob or if he lost last year to another overrated actor who lost the year before, etc.... Directors ususally win after about their 3 or 4th nomination (sometimes after their 5 or 6th in extreme cases), and typically someone gives a speech about a socialist ideal where everyone is happy living in peace and harmony with the billions of people they hate and want to blow up....God gets a bunch of cred for helping get a lot of films made and there's almost always a joke about gays, Jews and other people Mel Gibson blasts when drunk....Beyonce typically sings at the show.....then everyone gets smashed and hammered at swanky parties after the awards and the rest of us talk for weeks about the winning films and performances none of us saw....

    In honor of Mr. Scorcese's victory, here is a song about him by King Missile

    This one is called Martin Scorcese.
    He makes the best [expletive] films
    He makes the best [expletive] films
    If I ever meet him, I'm gonna grab his [expletive] neck and just shake him and say "Thank you. Thank you for making such excellent [expletive] movies."
    Then I'd twist his nose all the way the [expletive] around and then rip off one of his ears and throw it like a like a like a [expletive] frisbee
    I wanna chew is [expletive] lips off and grab his head and suck out one of his eyes and chew on it and spit it out in his face and say "Thank you thank you for all of your [expletive] films."
    Then I'd pick him up by the hair swing him over my head a few times and throw him across the room and kick all his [expletive] teeth in and then stomp on his face forty or fifty times cause he makes the best [expletive] films he makes the best [expletive] films I've ever seen in my life
    I [expletive] love him
    I [expletive] love him


    Actually, I had to look up on imdb.com to see if I have ever seen one of his films. I think the only one I have seen is The Color Of Money. I saw the beginning of The Last Waltz on VH1 Classic last week, but haven't seen the whole thing.

    That's a great film. But you'd have to be a brain-dead chimp to not be able to make a great film if your cast includes The Band, Van Morrison, Neil Young, and Muddy Waters jamming onstage. Even Carrot Top dancing around in every scene couldn't screw that one up.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Martin Scorsese?!?!

    I have seen some of his work, very nice stuff:

    The Departed
    Gangs of New York
    Cape Fear
    Goodfellas
    The Color of Money
    Taxi Driver

    So, I guess he won for "The Departed" tonight? Hmmm, I saw the film, pretty good, though it could have been better. I personally think Scorsese was sending a sub-conscious message "stop snitching". Maybe he just wants to get some street cred? Who knows, all I know is, even "snitch" dies by the end of the film.

    Hmm, sound like a bunch of rich arses stroking each other for accomplishing...what...entertainment. Truthfully, I find the whole thing a bit obnoxious. Maybe next year they could do the awards a little differently...

    And the award for the Firefighter who saved the most lives goes to....
    And the award for the Police Officer who...
    And the award for the Public School Teacher who...

    Until they start doing award shows like that, I probably won't watch.
    May the force be with you.

    Yeah, cos "nobody" saw "Little Miss Sunshine" that cost 8 million to make and grossed over 60 million at the BO and "nobody" saw "The Departed" that grossed 130 million at the BO and let's not forget "Pan's Labyrinth" which is critically claimed and grossed 40 million in the States. And a few of the films nominated this year had very limited release, but that's purely due to their distributors. Hell, "The Queen," "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "Last King of Scotland" have been playing here for weeks (which means dun dun dun: people are seeing them!). If you didn't see any of the films this year or care, why the hell did you watch it? Get off your high horse and do something productive instead of complaining. You're just making noise anyway.
