A COMPREHENSIVE ACADEMY AWARD REVIEW

Just kidding. I never have,never will waste a minute of the precious little time I have left of my life watching a bunch of posers with overinflated egos and way too much time on their hands indulge themselves in an orgy of self-congratulations and espousing their favorite liberal propaganda for the entire world to be awed by their awesomely awesome awesomeness. I perused the interwebs for some stuff about the gala this past evening,and the UK Telegraph had an orgy of coverage. I’m trying to do this like CtH or Grunt would post this. No promises. Regular stuff in reply section.

Hollywood Actress: ‘American Sniper’ Was Snubbed Because of Clint Eastwood’s Speech at RNC
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: How pervasive are politics in Hollywood right where we can’t even watch the Oscars? Everybody has their freedom of speech but you would think there would be some who feel a different way now. Are there some being silenced?

Stacey Dash: Oh yeah, being silenced. And I think they are so chummy with this administration. They love it so much…

Moonbat Actress Patricia Arquette Goes On Feminist Rant During Academy Award Acceptance Speech…

To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation. We have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America,” she said.

Valerie Jarrett Praises Oscar Winner Patricia Arquette For Equal Pay Speech

While Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez were leaping out of their seats to endorse Oscar Winner Patricia Arquette for using her acceptance speech to highlight the issue of equal pay for women, President Obama’s most trusted senior advisor endorsed the message as well.

“Congrats @PattyArquette!,” Valerie Jarrett tweeted shortly after the speech. “Thx for using your speech to advocate for #EqualPay and for understanding that when women succeed, America succeeds.”

5 moments when politics took center stage at the 2015 Oscars

1) Racial diversity

Politics took center stage right off the bat, when host Neil Patrick Harris referred to the #OscarsSoWhite debate.

“Tonight we honor Hollywood’s best and whitest — sorry, brightest,” he said, an ode to the controversial fact that the year’s acting nominees were all white

2) Gender pay gap

The comments were likely sparked by the email hack on Sony Pictures that revealed Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams made significantly less than their male co-stars.

3) Selma

Singer John Legend brought up voting rights, the incarceration rate of black men and Selma in his acceptance speech for his song “Glory” with Common from the movie “Selma.”

4) Snowden’s Oscar

“CITIZENFOUR,” which focuses on National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, won for best documentary feature. Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills, joined director Laura Poitras, producer Dirk Wilutzky and journalist Glenn Greenwald onstage to accept the award.

“The subject of ‘Citizenfour,’ Edward Snowden, could not be here tonight for some treason,” Neil Patrick Harris said to laughs as the winners walked offstage.

5) Sean Penn’s Immigration Joke

GASP!!!
Ohio News Anchor on Oscars: All That “Jigaboo Music”
Well, here’s one opinion.
Kristi Capel from FOX8 in Ohio critiqued Lady Gaga’s performance at the Oscars last night
“You couldn’t really hear her voice with all that ‘jigaboo’ music, that ‘jigaboo’ whatever you want to call it.”

And the award for most obscure shortlist goes to… Oscars accused of snubbing popular movies in favor of films that fit the tastes of Hollywood judges

Box office performance of best picture nominees was just $605million
Figure would have been lower without American Sniper, which took $312m
This year’s winner, Birdman, took a measly $36million at the box office

DIDJA CATCH THAT PART?

Director of snubbed ‘Selma’ asked protesters NOT to target Oscars for a lack of diversity
Ava DuVernay requested that the Los Angeles chapter of National Action Network not protest
The organization agreed to cancel a planned rally in exchange with meeting with two Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences executives

A PLANNED PROTEST OF THE UNBEARABLE WHITENESS OF BEING WAS CALLED OFF WHEN THE HOI POLLOI AGREED TO MEET WITH BROTHER AL AND HIS MERRY BAND OF NEGROES. THE FACT SECRET-SERVICE TRAINED LAPD SNIPERS WERE POSTED AROUND THE THEATER MAY HAVE HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. JUST SAYIN’

Criticizing POTUS

Democrats are having kittens over Rudy Giuliani’s remark that Obama doesn’t love the United States because he “doesn’t express a great love of this country” and criticizes the United States at home and abroad.  “President Obama was brought up in an atmosphere in which he was taught to be a critic of America. That is a distinction with prior American presidents.”

The irony challenged Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tweeted this:

Deb2

Puh-leeze!  Do these people have NO memories?!  I am reminded of the old saying, “Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it.”  I think it should have an addendum, “Those who can’t remember their own history are doomed to look like idiots.”

People who know Wasserman Schultz have told Politico that when Obama was giving her the cold shoulder and she got worried he’d replace her as DNC Chair, she rallied her supporters to let him know that such a move would prove he was anti-woman and anti-Jew.

And then there’s Fancy Nancy, who broke the age-old rule about keeping partisan political squabbles inside our borders.  It used to be that pols believed in presenting a united American front on issues of foreign policy, particularly when we had troops in harm’s way.  But that was before the current crop of America haters got control of the DemocRAT party.

2004 Pelosi rips Bush

Below is a MUST VIEW video.  It gave me goosebumps!

12-year old black political activist says, “President Obama, you don’t love America” [3:01]

Oh how I wish the First Black President of the United States had been someone of this kid’s caliber and not that unspeakable sack of ……….. squatting in the White House amongst the memories of men whose shoes he was never fit to shine.

Grunt’s Saturday Late Night (OK, Sunday Night) Movie Micro Review – Get the Gringo

Reprinted from my post at 4gfc.wordpress.com back in 2012 because I just saw it again, and Mel is a genius. And not just because I’ve been hitting the Bourbon. Quentin Tarantino couldn’t make a movie like this if he was sober for a decade.
