Most of you are hopeless “get off my lawn” types who only watch the Oscars to moan about the state of modern art and culture. Your self defined victim-hood is what gets you up in the morning. The world would be a better place if you just pulled your blankets over your head and went back to sleep. There’s over 40 pages of this claptrap and you think you are accomplishing something — instead you’re lost in your own miserable existence. Nobody forced you to watch... your only motivation was to complain.

But, I bet you sit around and Fox all day long.

Geez, what bunch of whiners on this thread. It's an award show for a multi-billion dollar industry that employs hundreds of thousands, pumps untold amounts in the economy and is one of America's crown jewels whose products are consumed voraciously throughout the world.

But :c rying: Jimmy Kimmel made a joke about Mike Pence :c rying: Evil lib, how dare he! :c rying: He's such a meanie.

I watched the whole show, loved the dresses although I wasn't 100% sure about Viola's hot pink gown. She was stunning at the Globes though. Merle looked fantastic too and it was nice to see Jodi Foster. I loved seeing the older generation represented so widely and kudos to the legendary Rita Moreno. I forgot how good she was in West Side Story. Jimmy was funny (especially the surprise interruption of an adjacent movie theater) but Tiffany Haddish and Mya Rudolph (love her) stole the show for me. They were so naturally at ease with their banter.

But my favorite is always the heartfelt gratitude expressed by the winners. Nice to see people happy and pursuing their life's calling. We should all be so lucky.

Not referring to the Oscars, I was referring to his late show.

Fox News must have told the old white people to be angry about the Oscars today.

Never thought I would see the day that Leno is held up as one of comedy's greats. Leno is one of the hackiest of hack comedians. His jokes are lame and so watered down that most seem like they were written by a corporation's PR department.

Wow.

Progressivsm is what accounts for every advancement in human history. You are typing on a computer connected to the world because of progressive thinking and innovation. It's no accident that all the technology companies making huge leaps forward are created and owned by progressives.

It's noteworthy that you do not even attempt to deny that what I postulated in my post is what a conservative Hollywood would look like, so I will at least give you props for that. Even you know it to be true.
And you have a vested interest in keeping that Progressivism going (the ACA, and your ACA subsidy).

Please, I had friends over to watch. We were busy talking with each other so many of the speeches we weren't totally paying attention to. Combine that with a whole bunch of martinis & I don't remember much of the Oscars, lol. I thought the set was awesome though & I was happy to see Jodi Foster, she looked great.

Isn't it weird how a bunch of weak-kneed beta liberals can somehow manage to hold such a billion-dollar industry in an iron grip?
