Oscar Wrap Up

Tim Babb’s March Blog Madness: Day 8

First off…sorry folks this week’s episode is a ways off I am busy and a little sick and the former is making the latter worse. I swear it will be worth the wait. (I’m quite proud of Noah and Andy on this week’s show)

But last night was Oscar night!!! As your intrepid Hollywood reported (who just drove by the Kodak Theater moments ago…several sloooooow moving moments ago), I know you give a shit what I thought. So here goes…

Actually I’m amazed that I HAVE an opinion! I haven’t seen most of the nominated films (Hence I was rooting for “Up”). For some reason I was rooting against Avatar. I dunno why. I haven’t seen it. Kevin Smith seemed to like it. Andy and Noah seemed to have at least enjoyed it. Part of is it that I don’t like James Cameron. Anyone who breaks it off with Sarah Connor is an idiot of the highest sort. Then, I guess, part of it is the hype. I was over this movie before it came out. I was just inundated with how this movie was going to “change movies forever.” Then the previews looked not as good as the average Pixar movie.

And Sandra Bullock…hell yes! Winning a Razzie and an Oscar in the same year. The first actor to do it. I just have always liked her since she ran over the baby carriage in Speed. I haven’t seen the movie she won for…and there’s no guarantee that I ever will. But, you go Sandra!!! Hell yeah!

I won’t go through the rest of the catagorys but I will say that Star Trek is officially an “Academy Award winning movie!” w00t! Suck it, Transformers!

Also people have been complaining on Twitter that Michael Jackson was mentioned in the look back at people who died in 2009, but Farrah Fawcett wasn’t. Ok…I get with you being hurt with them leaving Farrah out…she wasn’t a “movie star,” she was a television actress for the most part, but she DID do some movies. But I’m not down with these people who are saying Michael didn’t belong on that real. He has contributed to film in a number of ways. Aside from playing one of the leads in the Wiz, he had a small part in Men in Black 2, he performed the themes to Free Willy, Free Willy 2 and the immortal “Ben.” Not to mention that his music videos were considered to be “short films” by many. Just look at the talent he had behind the camera: John Landis, Martin Scorcesse, John Singleton, and OF course George Lucas and Francs Ford Copilla for a little 3D adventure playing in Disneyland RIGHT NOW! I for one was glad they gave Michael a brief mention. But I AM sorry they skipped Farrah…and also Wayne Alwyne (The voice of Mickey Mouse) May all or lost favorites rest in peace and may we carry our love for there work with us no matter who is a fuck stick and tries to ignore/shit on them.

…ok…no time to spell check this train wreck. I gotta go. Kisses!!!

    I too have not seen Avatar and have no desire to ever see it. There really seemed to be no story to it. I was surprised that they mentioned Michael Jackson and even more surprised and kind of pissed that in the tribute to horror films they used clips from Twilight, Beeteljuice, and as you mentioned via facebook/twitter, Edward Scissorhands. In no way are those movies frightening in any way. Watching the oscars always makes me want to watch alot of these movies but my apathy seems to always get the best of me. I’m glad that Up won and the song from it which won the award still makes me a little teary.

  2. Geoff Says:

    I really want to see The Hurt Locker.

    That is all.

  3. Logan Says:

    Avatar…saw it twice both times I thought it looked cool but the story was really lacking. I am glad the hurt locker beat them. A good movie has to be more than special effects.

  4. Alissa (at school in class shhhh) Says:

    I don’t totally care whether or not MJ was mentioned, it makes sense that he was so whatevs, but I was upset that Farrah Fawcett wasn’t. That’s just not cool, ya feel me? And that was the only part of the Oscars that I watched. So I guess that’s all I can say about that.

    “Fawcett was best known for her ‘remarkable television work'” Whereas MJ=movie star???


    Actually, I think that the most disturbing line in this article is the use of the term “necrology sequence”. I don’t care if it’s accurate terminology, Sandy Cohen of the AP, you’ve got issues, girl! Surely it’s not just me who finds that term creepy?

    I find it creepy, but also good…

    Oh geez! I forgot about “This Is It” I guess that should count for something for Michael. It made 260 million dollars world wide.

  8. Andy Says:

    People were on Larry King last night bemoaning the tragedy of Farrah’s snub. At length. With trembling voices.

    Hey, retards: Farrah doesn’t care anymore.

    People just get way butt-hurt about shit that doesn’t actually affect them. It’s like intellectually lazy activism. They feel good because they took a stand, but their outrage doesn’t accomplish anything.
