    It drums up interest in the movie industry from bitchy cows like us who love goggling at the dresses and hot people. That's not everyone's cup of tea, but its not like its news
    Don't get me wrong, I agree with you. I love us bitchy cows getting all excited over the dresses and whatnot, it's my favorite part. It's just that I don't take the politics behind it seriously.

    Hee, Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was great if you love bad schlock. I actually really excited to see the Abe Lincoln movie because
    1)Daniel Day-Lewis
    2) Abe is totally my presidential boyfriend. Love that guy!
    3)Spielberg makes about one good movie out of four. I figure he's about due.

    Opus Dei threatened him so he wouldn't reveal on film that Lincoln was the great great great great great great great great great great great grandson of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

    By saying the award doesn't mean much to him, you mean? Like he is saying it isn't a valid thing to care about getting one? I just didn't read it that way at all.

    No, I am asking you if that is what you meant by shitting on everyone who has participated or been given an award. I am just asking you to clarify since I don't understand what you meant.

    I read it as him saying he doesn't like the awards and thinks they are a farce.

    ETA i.e. I think Harold Bloom's Western Canon is kind of a BS thing to go by as far as saying who has made a valuable contribution to literature (only the people contained in it), but it doesn't mean I think any less of the writers he chose to include. I just think it's a silly list that would not make me think more or less of a particular author.

    And that's saying that everyone who has ever won an Oscar is a farce. That its all bullshit. Sure some of them were, but the vast majority earned it.

    See, I hear it as him saying the tradition of The Academy is a farce, he doesn't want to play, if others do they do. He isn't saying they suck, just that they don't need to earn an award to tell them their craft is worth something. It's just my subjective interpretation.

    Over 70% of the voters are white men over the age of 70.That's why their choices are always so shitty.

    Jeez how about Joaquin aka Leaf just says I'm glad you enjoyed my performance and shuts the fuck up. I agree that Oscar gets it wrong more than right but to steal from WCC and Stripes lighten up Francis.

    Whenever I watch the Oscars, all I see are a bunch of overpaid people dressed up for prom giving eachother awards.

    Joaquin Phoenix Doesn't Hate The Oscars




    Joaquin Phoenix will probably get an Oscar nomination for playing a crazy, wild cult member (Note: He's basically playing Jenna Elfman.) in The Master and he said in Interview Magazine last month that he could give a shit about wrapping his hand around a gold-plated dildo man trophy. Joaquin said the Oscars are utter bullshit and he doesn't want to be a part of it at all. Just when I was starting to hope that the Academy would tell Joaquin to eat shit and give an Oscar to a Phoenix who really deserves it (example: A lifetime achievement Oscar to Rain Phoenix for her work in Maid to Order and To Die For), he's trying to make nice.
    The studio and Joaquin's publicist have dropped him on a tricycle and told him to back pedal, bitch, back pedal! The Sydney Morning Herald asked Joaquin if he thinks his hate for the Oscars will cost him a nomination and he said this:
    "I guess I sound like a dick. I didn't even know that I was in a position to do something that would cost me something. But I know that first of all, I wouldn't have the career that I have if it weren't for the Oscars. I haven't been in a lot of movies that have made a lot of money … And getting nominated for a movie has probably helped my career tremendously. But in some ways it's the antithesis of what you want to be as an actor. You're always trying to free yourself of the artifice, which is really difficult. Especially when you suck, like me."
    Then he was asked if he thinks he's getting a nomination.
    "Come on man, you know that it's more complex than that. It's not like I fucking hate the Oscars … It doesn't occupy my time to where I can build up hate. What I was reacting to was sometimes the reverence that we have about these things. I don't want to revere it."
    Douche, please. Joaquin wants us all to think he's like "whatever" about an Oscar nomination, but you know that when nobody's looking he practices his acceptance speech in the mirror while holding a trophy he bought from eBay. When he's not doing that, he's on the phone with Nate Silver, begging to know his chances. He probably sounds like a strung out crackie when he's on the phone with Nate Silver. "Is it a hard 80.987% or a soft 80.987%? I NEED TO KNOW! I will suck yo dick if it helps. Please!"
    Joaquin is wasting his time, though. He will get an Oscar nomination, but he won't win. See, the major twist in Les Miserable is that Fantine not only cuts off her hair, but she gets a female-to-male sex change too. Anne Hathaway will get Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actress. She's going to win all the Oscars on Oscar night, so Joaquin can stay under his bridge.
