Luckily my brain has the capacity to think about many different things from moment to moment.

I'm not going to be sitting around all day dwelling on it.

Just enough to make you indescribably angry over something completely meaningless.

If it's meaningless, I wonder why you're taking the time to post in a thread for the Academy Awards.

Yeah, the Academy Awards are certainly not "completely meaningless."

At least in my view.

The time? Killing time is one of the main reasons most people post on forums, and this is one of the more active threads of late. As I've said before the Oscars are a fun enough distraction to follow each year, but I do think it's asinine to ascribe any realimportance to them, or to any art or entertainment "awards" in general. Especially to the point of emotional investment.

So getting riled up about an award given out isn't killing time as well? I'm not ascribing importance to anything; I'm angered that some nobody won over four talented filmmakers for an Oscar Bait film.

It's still a "distraction" as you put it. It's not going to affect my life.

Dickey the crack addict jumping on stage when Bale got the award was a little odd. Real crack addict stuff.




edit.
Walberg just said he sent him up.

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
The King's Speech
Anthony Andrews, Claire Bloom, Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Ehle, Colin Firth, Michael Gambon, Derek Jacobi, Guy Pearce, Geoffrey Rush and Timothy Spall
Not happy about this.

But fuck yeah about this:
Quote:
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
Boardwalk Empire
Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt, Kelly MacDonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Aleksa Palladino, Michael Stuhlbarg, Stephen Graham, Vincent Piazza, Paz de la Huerta, Michael Kenneth Williams, Gretchen Mol, Paul Sparks, Anthony Laciura, and Dabney Coleman
There's something seriously wrong in all this shit.
One moment The Social Network is THE FILM to win everything and out of nowhere The King's Speech starts to get every possible award. What the hell?
I mean... it's an pretty, well-acted film, but still quite an "normal" one in that sense.
Well, whatever...

I really expected The Fighter to win best ensemble, if not TSN. This is the kind of thing everyone was expecting from The King's Speech before TSN swept everything in it's path, it's like either everyone has reverted to the admittedly good Oscar bait expected-frontrunner so as to not have every award be unanimous.

But there are def similarities between Fincher and Scorsese and so this cold shoulder by a bunch of hacks like the DGA shouldn't really surprise me. They fucked Marty so many times before The Departed.
Yeah... but AMPAS also fucked him over every time out until The Departed.

This happens every year, I don't know why it should suddenly upset every one to such a degree.

It just goes to show that the film adored by the critics will not necessarily be loved by other groups.

I still think it's down to "heart" and likability and people voting for TKS because, lord knows why, they just love the movie.

Maybe The Social Network would have fared better if it had a scene where Zuckerberg has a life-changing epiphany and weeps on the phone to Eduardo

And no way did TKS deserve Best Ensemble, Firth and Rush were fantastic but it's basically a two-actors show.

If we needed any more proof that the critics know more about film or have better taste than the people that actually work in the industry, this is it.

Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce and Michael Gambon were also excellent.
