It’s all jerks, jokes & Jodie Foster
New York Post, by Linda Stasi

What do you get when 85 freeloading freelancers without genuine media affiliations vote for winners in an industry that’s filled with affiliations and worth more than most small countries? A) A scam; B) The Golden Globes; or C) Jodie Foster. If you guessed A, you are correct, if you guessed B, you are correct, and if you guessed C, you are as confused as the rest of us. Last night, for the 70th time, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association held their annual confusing grifter fest, the Golden Globe Awards, filled with Hollywood honchos pretending it was all real,

Every year it seems like more and more movies nobody ever heard of or seen gets the awards,mostly because they push a "progressive" theme. The anti fracking movie turned out to be a box office flop but they´ll find some award for it. Obama 2016,never made it to the list of documentaries,despite out preforming all other docs combined.The same thing happened on "waiting for superman" which exposed union corruption in the school system and was produced/directed by a career lefty.

I happened to surf by just as Jody Foster was revving up. Move over BHO, we have a new Messiah and we didn´t know it. Even the leftie boobs in the audience were dumbfounded and unconfortable.

Since I had more important and interesting things to watch on TV last night (Anna and the King of Siam - the 1946 Irene Dunne version), I have to ask:

Why was Jodie Foster even there?

And why should we care ... about her, about any of this? Hollywood award shows are, and have been for - uh, always - a huge public ´´master-debation´´ display.

It is said that politics is Hollywood for ugly people. But truly - aren´t these shallow people all the same, inside? Walnut-size brains bouncing around giant swollen skulls.

Congralations, Mzzzzzz. Foster. I used to admire you but you have now placed yourself up there with the rest of the ´´who?´´ crowd. Don´t let that closet door hit you in the backside, dear.....

I agree with #1. The left is trying to push their movies down our throats. Most I have never heard. One show that I would not take the time to review is "GIRLS" with that trashing Dunham. She calls republicans nazis.

If that speech last night was Jodie´s coming out, I think it is safe to say that she didn´t have to bother because most of us have already suspected the truth. I don´t say that in a mean way, because I have always admired the fact that she never put her personal life in our faces and she stood up for Mel Gibson when he had his troubles. In a community that believes in the great art of backstabbing friends to get ahead, that is something noteworthy. If there is any thing resembling class in Hollywood, she is it.

As I was surfing, I landed for a few minutes on the Golden Globes. Thought I might stay a while until I saw Jessica Alba walk out and read a piece of papter. I keep hearing her name and wonder why she is popular. Have never seen her in anything and after watching her last night, will never see her in anyting. She is fairly plain, has no personality, and can´t even read a piece of paper without stumbling. Moved on. Boring!

Like most posters here, I couldn´t care less what these dimbulbs say and do, but it has long been known that Jodie Foster is a lesbian with (last time anyone checked) in a long-term, stable relationship.

It has always interested me how such talented people like Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Streisand when she could still sing, Wesley Snipes, Jonathan Rhys-Myers, Joaquin Phoenix, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and some of the better actors can be so exceptional at their craft and so unfathomably vacuous in most other aspects of their usually dysfunctional lives, especially their politics.

Ditto, #12. I watched a James Bond movie marathon and what is with the new one - talk about ugly. I haven´t been out to a movie in years - not much that I would watch and foster in particular. When Fellini died, I was sad, he was funny, sad and weird.

All I need to know about the Golden Globes was that Julieanne Moore was awarded for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in ´Game Change´. And she was lauded for her "courage". Please. Call me when someone in Hollywood portrays Obama as a lazy Communist, and then we can talk courage.

PS...Sarah Palin is still being ripped by Hollywood? Did she run for something last year and I missed it? She didn´t even attend the RNC convention!

My favorite part was a) missing it all and b) reading the whole of Nikki Finke´s snark blog at Deadline.com, especially the part about Ryan Seacrest and Bradley Cooper needing to ´redo their closets.´ Close 2nd: revealing that Lena Dunham is every bit the nasty piece of work she appears to be.

I´ve thought for some time now that all the people ´outing´ themselves were making a big mistake. Very, very few of them go on to busy careers pretending to be someone else and winning awards for it. Jodie Foster is an excellent actress but after her plane movie where the bad guy were American - that´s it for me.

By the way, I think some of them are making it up - about being gay. Just a thought.

Why not put Swamp Loggers or L.A. Ink on as best shows? Oh, that´s right, all those garbage "Viewer Wrestling" shows don´t use writers since the writer strike ruined that pool of "talent". Unions have ruined Hollywierd as much as they have ruined this nation´s greatness as a world industrial leader. Now all the elites have is each other- clearly their audience has found other means of entertainment. The dive into commonality and mediocrity has been spectacular. Lady Gaga rules supreme and the world wonders.

Most are nonentities. Mention their names and people shake their heads and go "huh? never heard of him/her"...

But no one has told them.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler "wildly funny women"? Linda is very young or has a bizarre sense of humor. Perpetually meanspirited is not "wildly funny". Especially in women.

The oversized egos of these mental midgets is hilarious. Ms. Foster evidently thinks that the world is agog over her ´sexuality´ when in fact no one cares except maybe Hollywood and shut-ins who have nothing better to do than to follow celebrity gossip. Does anyone really watch these award shows? What is wrong with them?

I agree with number 10. I think she´s been hounded for years to come out publically and she hasn´t. She didn´t do it in an "in your face" way. She´s stood by Mel Gibson who´s politically incorrect as they come. She´s classy in my book.

I read the transcript of Jodie Foster´s speech and it was very poignant. That the media is focusing on that one moment is par for the course but her words for her mother still give me a lump in my throat. That she acknowledges Mel Gibson was the brave moment, IMO. Not saying anything about her "partner".

She showed a room full of morally corrupt and selfish jerks what it is to be a good daughter, a good mother and a good friend.

The media, of course, turns it into something that fits their narrative.

#29, because I like some of the better (real) cooking shows, TCM, A&E, BIO, HIST, and the occasional commercial-free movie.

That said, almost all our TV watching is Netlix streaming of movies or Fox News now and then. But these days, even watching Fox while on the treadmill is painful with that ditzy AM blonde who persists in peppering her speech with "you know".

Because of Lucianne I just found out they had the reward dispensation gathering.
It reminds me of 4 Hero of Soviet Union medals awarded to brezhnev or nobel prize awarded to obozo (lower case intentional). They gather in a dark alley (no matter how much glamor) and give the awards - it matters to the dark alley dwellers, not to us.
Do they deserve those? Of course not, but because hollywood has monopoly producing entertainment goodies in the whole world what choice do you have? Watch this garbage or watch nothing!

What about their rights?
How difficult for two boys to grow up knowing that their mother did not VALUE their father enough to be his wife.
Is this intelligent, talented, rich and feted woman is lonely - sh has no one to blame but herself.

Came in late, there was Mel sitting up close, Jody giving him support. Bravo. Mel and Jody, two of the most versatile actors ever, who are also stars. Jody is as versatile, do anything well, as Christopher Walken and Gary Oldman. Rambling speech was incoherent, but nice to see her getting attention. Great to see Mel, the most versatile, accomplished actor of the few true stars.

I am with you #12. I´d rather poke my eyes out. But if Jodie is gay, so what? Anybody who saw her as a child KNEW she was gay before she eve knew it. It is obvious she was just made that way. It was more than her just being a tomboy as a kid.

Anyway, I believe ALL awards show are scams now. They are just a bunch of people congratulating themselves for being phony. Even the Academy Awards has turned that way. It is all a joke

Foster actually went to college and earned a degree, so she´s what passes for an intellectual in Hollywood. Of course, her degree is in Literature from Yale, so it´s not worth much. As for her being a lesbian, I´m shocked, shocked.

What Obamacare Means for Your Taxes

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

I´m waiting for my missus and the TV is on and I´m half watching, half reading and you´re covering the plane. And time passes. And you´re covering the plane. And commercials intervene and you come back and you´re covering the plane. And my

The following are 23 news stories from a variety of sources that everyone should consider before the avalanche of “go green” stories that will be unveiled on Earth Day – in the media and in our kids’ schools. Whether or not one wants to promote the perfectly fine goal of fostering a better environment and leaving a cleaner planet for one’s children, that should not be carried out on the basis of disinformation, hysteria, or hidden political agendas. 1. Humans are NOT to Blame for Global Warming, Says Greenpeace Co-founder… (Daily Mail) “There is no scientific proof of man-made global warming

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Few of Ernst’s missed Iowa Senate
votes due to National Guard Duty

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service. Ernst is in a field of six candidates vying to win the Republican

Let HHS nominee Sylvia Burwell
explain Obamacare lie

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
