I nominate Barack Hussein Obama, for Best Actor. His performance has millions believing he is actually an American president. Amazing!

I could give two rips.

I hope this entire industry drifts into irrelevance. What a bunch of elitist, congratulatory, self-important, silicone sell-outs in over priced, gaudy outfits. (Pah-tooey).

Wake me when it´s over. The silver screen stars and starlets that made the Hollywood crowd worthy of praised are past extinct.

Talentless hacks. The whole lot.

"Lincoln" is very, very good. "Les Miserables" is perhaps the best film from Hollywood in the last ten years.

It´s not that the film makers in Hollywood aren´t talented, or that they don´t make movies with value. It´s that they choose to funnel garbage at us, and champion values that undercut the principles that this country was founded upon. They praise depravity and despise virtue, and they get rewarded for this with obscene and despicable wealth. And they had the nerve to to blame Romney for the wealth that he honestly created.

The last time I went to the movies was August 2003.

I only recall the incident because I was on vacation in FL and it was raining ... not much else to do, and I was recovering from arm surgery. It was a movie about a race horse.

Lincoln - that´s CSPAN with whiskers. Let´s listen to D. D. Lewis raise his voice (just like he does in all his movies). He sounds just like Lincoln, oh wait, no one really knows what Lincoln sounds like. A real snooze list.

I´ve never heard of 90% of these people. I´m aware of "Lincoln" because of it´s hype. --But I DO am familiar with a LOT of Barbara Stanwyck movies I saw on TCM last month. Thank goodness for that network--despite the fact that it was founded by Turner.... The escapism is about all that gets me by sometimes! Can´t take the news channels anymore.

I think Les Miserables has gotten mixed reviews because of its Christian message and because Hugo himself had certain free market leanings (noting how Jean Valjean´s factory lifted up the people in his town and how, after he had to go on the run, the people again descended into poverty and stopped paying taxes). All of this could be ignored on the stage because the music was the star of the show. That is, I think, why so many complain that the singing isn´t as good in the movie as in the play.

When did they start nominating more than 5 movies for best picture? And if there are so many wonderful movies each year, why only 5 nominees for all other categories?

Loved Les Mis. Also loved Moonrise Kingdom, MIB3, Argo, The Avengers, The Hunger Games, and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter (the better of the 2 Lincoln movies released last year!) As long as they don´t preach to me, or treat me like a ploddingly backward 7 year old, I am happy to give them my money so they can entertain me. But the Oscars are a joke, a bad joke. Haven´t watched them in years.

One of the worse movies I´ve seen in years was the "Master", it was disconnected and really had no plot line, but the worse film of the year had to be Brad Pitt´s "Killing then Softly", Most everyone in the theatre walked out before the movie ended.

The Worst Wing- How the East Wing

New Republic, by Reid Cherlin    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

New York Soon to

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

´Six-year love affair of
phone hacking editors´

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

CNN´s Hillary Clinton film scrapped as

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
