Just saw a news headline that read: "3.1 million customers face Oscar night without broadcast."

Do people really watch that shit?

I'm watching Saving Private Ryan. No time for the Oscars.

Me too, but that doesn't mean this thread doesn't hold some promise.

Hollywood circle jerk.

Anyone want to put money on some smug fuck giving a political speech involving how great dear leader is.

Girlfriend is watching it. I'm thinking of either going to the bedroom to watch a movie or playing another round of Battlefield 1943.

Edit:

That was a nice tribute to John Hughes.

My girlfriend is watching it, so I am watching it . We have a small house and only one tv, so no I can't get away from it. I'm just sitting here on Arfcom to pass the time.

Hmm, Hurt Locker got best original screenplay. I wonder if Avatar is going to lose for best picture...

Clooney couldn't seem to take a joke during the monologue and looked pretty crabby in the few shots I observed. Pussy!

Christoph Waltz(Col. Landa) won best supporting actor for Inglourious Basterds.

The Clooney thing appeared to be part of the show. It was a setup between him and Alec Baldwin. Unless there is something real behind it.

I was at Cole's the other night and could hear some guy gabbing about it. I guess we all have our likes, but jeese, to fawn all over the stars like that and annoy everyone else in the process...

Grown ups in Hollywood who make a living playing "pretend" getting together to congratulate themselves on how good they are at it.

About as impressive as professional hopscotch competitions and awards.

I can think of very few things I care less about than some self congratulatory bullshit like the Oscar's. Does anyone actually still watch this shit?

Narcissism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term narcissism refers to the personality trait of egotism, which includes the set of character traits concerned with self-image ego. The terms narcissism, narcissistic, and narcissist are often used as pejoratives, denoting vanity, conceit, egotism or simple selfishness. Applied to a social group, it is sometimes used to denote elitism or an indifference to the plight of others.

The name "narcissism" is derived from Greek mythology. Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus pined away and changed into the flower that bears his name, the narcissus.

And the nominees for best original makeup and set design for a foreign short film adaptation never shown in the civilized world are...

I love some of these categories.

Does anyone else think that the Oscars theme kinda sounds like the Star Trek: TNG theme?

Wow, the Oscars are so fucking horrible this year.

Painful to watch. Just horrible.

(although: Damn, Kate Winslet looks pretty damn good though)

ETA: Nice to see Clooney's sour puss after getting beat by Bridges.

BORING. And that fucking diatribe with the Best Actor where they bullshitted about the perosn for 5 minutes each. I left the room.

I know "The Hurt Locker" was a great movie, but beating Avatar for best picture? I know the Avatar storyline was a total rehash of typical Disney storylines, but it was amazing as far as visuals and wow factor.

They lost credibility if they didn't give Cameron best director. I know they think they have to give it to same person as best movie, but in this case maybe Hurt Locker was a better movie but Cameron just fucking awed people and single-handedly launched the first salvo in the next generation of movie technology.
