Perhaps, Scientology is his only malfunction I'm aware of, and that doesn't have any bearing on ability to pronounce names.

12 Years, bitches.

This is me jumping for joy when it won BP, courtesy of one of my friends:





My other fav win of the night was The Great Beauty, but that wasn't as tense so I didn't get airborne.

How dumb is this clickbait.

Are the Oscars sexist? Should women and men be in the same category?

If males and females were combined in one category, the same people calling for it would cry sexism whenever a male wins.

You do seem to complain about women who take issue with sexism a lot, just saying.

I don't see anything in that article outrageous enough to warrant your reaction.

Not going to argue with that, but the above suggestion sounds stupid to me, and would no doubt lead to articles complaining if, say, men won three years in a row.

I don't see a problem with a male and female category. I think perhaps releasing the female category after the male category might shut everyone up in that case. I did think about that and how the order could seem sexist. I don't think that's the intention.

Only 4 wrong in my Oscar pool. And to be fair... I knew U2 wouldn't win. True fandom meant I had to pick em.

These ones were wrong.

Cobs, I don't particularly care about the categories of Oscar voting but I do think any exasperated explanation of anything that ends with, "because then women would cry sexism" is a little bit troubling. Not because that end may or may not happen, but because it frames the potential "false cry" of sexism as more problematic than actual sexism.

Mr. Kotter tried but couldn't get him the extra help he needed for it because the school lacked resources.

If it's that troubling you can always watch him talk after the show for 9 minutes with nary a mention of it

Oh my God. I made a joke last night about people complaining that the female category comes first, making it ever so slightly lower on the totem pole of awards.... I cannot believe I'm actually reading this now.

After hearing his rambling, self-absorbed I-am-my-own-greatest-hero-thank-god-and-daddy-in-his-underwear mess of a speech, no, I don't think I need to hear nine more minutes.
