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

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/14/2013 5:27:45 AM

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!

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.

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug.

Bray allegedly is among several officials who were obtaining weapons through this operation.

A FedEx truck crossed a freeway and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. At least 34 people were taken to local hospitals, authorities said. The bus was taking students from various Los Angeles-area schools to visit Humboldt State University in Arcata. The collision occurred in Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento. In a statement, the university said it got word of the crash but was working to find out more details. "Our thoughts

Give this retching, crying, sniveling, vomiting degenerate an Academy Award! I don’t know how much more I can take of Oscar Pistorius’ rubbish. A prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the athlete known as the “Blade Runner’’ for the carbon-fiber blades that replace his lower legs — which he’s not afraid to use as props to score pity — to “take responsibility’’ for slaughtering his beautiful girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day, 2013. He told Pistorius, 27, to look at a picture of the blood- and human-tissue-covered head of the model and TV personality, who died, like a caged animal, at age 29 inside

Rolling Stone´s Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

RICHGROVE, Calif. — In March 2013, a man with brooding, mahogany eyes and a walrus mustache traveled from his home in California to visit relatives in Alabama. The trip did not end well. When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe. Martinez, 51, was charged Tuesday with killing nine men mostly in California´s Central Valley, part of a

A Southern California city declared the factory that produces Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance Wednesday night, and gave its operators 90 days to make changes that stop the spicy odors that have prompted complaints from some residents. The Irwindale City Council´s action allows city officials to enter the factory and order changes if the odors persist after the 90-day deadline. The measure passed by a unanimous 4-0 vote. The decision came despite testimony by air-quality experts that progress was being made toward a resolution. The South Coast Air Quality Management District said its inspectors have taken air samples inside

During an interview as a part of an appearance at a marketing conference, the former secretary of state said: “I am thinking about it, but I am going to continue to think about it for a while. … The hard questions are not do you want to be president, or can you win. The hard questions are why. Why would you want to do this and what can you offer that could make a difference.” Clinton has said she is thinking

The audience was still cheering reverently for Barbara Walters on Tuesday’s edition of The View, the day after her announcement that May 16 would mark her final day presenting the ABC morning show. Her hair its usual whipped and spun golden halo, Walters came out of the wings, gingerly high-fived some folk in the audience, before her fellow host Whoopi Goldberg reminded us of her momentous imminent farewell

Republicans are demanding greater transparency on how much the administration spent to promote and implement Obamacare — and hitting back at President Obama´s claim that he “didn´t make a hard sell.” The new effort comes after Obama´s claim that the administration met its goal of enrolling more than 7 million people without spending billions. “We didn´t make a hard sell,” Obama said. “We didn´t have billions of dollars to spend on commercials like our critics did.” But both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill estimate the administration has spent roughly $4 to 5 billion to get the Affordable Care Act running, including hundreds

Despite the Obama administration´s insistence that everyone -- the government, insurance companies, doctors, medical providers, and consumers -- will reap benefits from Obamacare, a recent grant proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggests that the agency does have concerns about the ongoing financial viability of one player in the health care market: so-called family planning centers. HHS intends to spend up to $800,000 to fund studies to "conduct data analysis and related research and evaluation on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X funded family planning centers."

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
