The Thinking, Drinking, And Tweeting Man's Guide To The Oscars

Tyler Durden's picture


From the youngest to the oldest nominee for best actress (Quvenzhane Wallis - 9 and Emmanuelle Riva - 85) to the relative money gambled on the outcomes, we thought it only appropriate to provide some education and information as this evening's self-congratulatory mutual masturbation begins. With TED scoring well in social media, hopes of an Angelina Jolie thigh-show high, and enough communal drinking-game directions to sink Seth MacFarlane, we hope this provides a little levity as the seriousness of Daniel Day-Lewis' method overwhelms.


The History of the Oscars...



The Oscars vs The Superbowl (from 2010)... (click image for large version)


And if social media was deciding (click image for visual via The UK's Daily Mirror)...


And finally, Esquire's always-classy drinking game...

Drinking communally is one of the great innovations of the modern world. The Oscars, and awards-shows in general, are not. Filled with pomp, circumstance, and self-importance, they are only made bearable by the moments that really remind us of what the movies are all about — nostalgia, storytelling, honoring artists you know have worked hard and haven't sold their souls. For the rest, well, we'll get through it together. Here are some Eat Like a Man-approved beverages to pair with your Best Picture nominees of choice and a few easy rules for participation.*

Drink this if you're rooting for...

Take a sip if...

  • The camera cuts to someone Seth MacFarlane just insulted.
  • Daniel Day-Lewis speaks.
  • You find yourself admiring Ben Affleck's beard.
  • You find yourself admiring Dustin Hoffman's beard.
  • You find yourself admiring Joaquin Phoenix's beard.
  • You find yourself admiring Jennifer Lawrence.
  • Tom Cruise bares his teeth.
  • Tarantino smirks.
  • Kathryn Bigelow's lithe arms make an appearance (one for each arm).
  • The sound and visual-effect awards go by and you fail to notice
  • An actress is described as "lovely."
  • They start playing the "time's up" music on any winner at or below the Best Supporting Actor/Actress level.
  • The camera pans to Angelina Jolie looking beatific.
  • The camera catches Steven Spielberg looking smarmy.
  • Angelina Jolie is snuggling Brad Pitt.

Take a gulp if...

  • Angelina and Brad don't show up.
  • Any reference is made to Ar-Go-Fk-Yourself.
  • Tom Cruise had something better to do that night.
  • Jennifer Lawrence gets on stage.
  • Adele totally owns "Skyfall."
  • Norah Jones totally owns that Ted song.
  • The "Celebration of Musicals" presentation sucks.
  • Seth MacFarlane does a Stewie impression.
  • If Joaquin Phoenix shows up without a beard.
  • You haven't seen any of the foreign nominees.
  • The words "stiff competition" are used when they pan across the nominees for Best Supporting Actor (De Niro…Jones…Arkin…).
  • If the presenter can't pronounce Quvenzhané.
  • If Day-Lewis shows up wearing anything remotely reminiscent of Abe Lincoln.
  • If Beyonce's there.
  • Someone pulls a Pesci.
  • They start playing the "time's up" music on any winner at or above the Best Actor/Actress level.
  • Someone thanks Harvey Weinstein (multiple gulps if necessary).

Down the whole bottle if...

  • Michael Haneke pulls a Roberto Benigni.
  • Anyone drops a statue.
  • Quvenzhané Wallis wins Best Actress.
  • The Master doesn't win anything, because, come on — Amy Adams!

Down the whole bottle, break it over your head, and forget the whole thing if...

  • Les Misérables wins.
  • Life of Pi wins.
  • If Hugh Jackman wins.
  • If Hugh Jackman sings.

*Esquire does not condone binge drinking. (Unless Benh Zeitlin wins Best Director, because at that point, why not?)

Star Wars?

Can you believe they are bringing 75 year old Han Solo back?

Can you believe modern movies suck so bad?

Since *grade school*. Homey. "[She] hasn't been fucked like that since GRADE SCHOOL." World may be going to hell around our very ears, but precision in quoting the classics is what seperates us from the animals. And politicians.

Also, HBC seems to one *seriously* fcuked-up chick IRL - so much so that 'Marla" may have just been typecasting. She's married to Tim Burton, noted director and apparent necrophiliac.

Can you believe that the U.S. in drowning in debt never to recover again in our lifetime?

Can you belive I had to waste 2 minutes of my time to type this out?

Can you believe that if you know what Star Wars will be producing in future movies you are the problem?

You fucking liar. The only reason prices have appeared to increase is that your perceptions have been hijacked by the extreme right. The truth is that actually everything is okay and indeed becoming more so everyday..Except of course for the 'republican problem'.

These 'people' must be confronted.

Hey, friend??? I'd like to have a real conversation with you about making some difficult choices. These rightwing extremist have demonstrated a cold and callused disregard for the truth that Michelle and I work so tirelessly to promote ( not to mention Joe and his selfless efforts that together with Jill do so very much for this thing we call a 'nation').

So 22winmag...Can you find it in your cold white heart to have some compassion for our cause? $2.00 would really help.

We'll feel much better explaining to Oprah why we did this if you would just pitch in and go along.

Get on the train.

And the greatest bit o' horseshit in Perceptions Management with Agro (or whatever that fucking Affleck thing is called) is that first, the "producers were aided in information as to the operation by the CIA"
Then, there's that story a surfacin' that top secret information was leaked by the movie

Instead of company tokens and wealthy Yankee Robber Barons, they now have beautifully printed pieces of paper and national debt slavery to NWO Globalist Jew bankers. Think about it a little and you’ll get what’s really behind the “culture wars” business (actually anti-White brainwashing and Marxist social manipulations)."

I don't watch TV so I had no motivation to watch any of those 5 movies. I can't believe it I did not watch a single one of them. I'm not interested in what other people are doing. Lordy lordy I'm becoming an indibidual.

Oh no I'm not that's right I watched Resident Evil 3D at the theater. It was not one of the better REs but the 3D made it fun.

Watched naked Angelina Jolie kill all the heros in Beowulf last week. It was not much of a story to begin with but they followed a lot of the cotton vitellius A xv.

Maybe its Hollywood's new method of copyright protection. Make them so bad that no one will want to steal them.

I'm not watching it.  Haven't seen either Lincoln or Zero Dark 30. Saw Argo.  Mildly entertaining.

I've noticed that in the past, whenever the US Government was about to go to war, or go on the offensive, a ton of these war/government/feel-good propaganda films would come out.  A subliminal message to rally the sheeple to support the cause.

I believe Daniel D Lewis will win best actor and Lincoln will be best film.  The votes came in directly from the whitehouse on this years Oscars.  Don't believe the hype that the press-guild had anything to do with the votes.

Ironic that a figure like Lincoln who was all about preserving and honoring the Constitution will be voted in by a bunch of thieves and crooks who are all about dismantling all those same rights that Lincoln stood for.

unfortunately a smart man learns the way of the lying and pervasive jew and the scales fall from the eyes,

Hitler was 100% right about everything.

"We were not foolish enough to try to make a currency coverage of gold of which we had none, but for every mark that was issued we required the equivalent of a mark's worth of work done or goods produced. . . .we laugh at the time our national financiers held the view that the value of a currency is regulated by the gold and securities lying in the vaults of a state bank." -Adolf Hitler, 1937 (CC Veith, Citadels of Chaos, Meador, 1949.)

"And it proved sound. It worked. In less than ten years Germany became easily the most powerful state in Europe. It worked so magically and magnificently that it sounded the death knell of the entire (Zionist) Jewish money system. World Jewry knew that they had to destroy Hitler's system, by whatever means might prove necessary, or their own [system of usury] would necessarily die. And if it died, with it must die their dream and their hope of making themselves masters of the world. The primary issue over which World War II was fought was to determine which money system was to survive. At bottom it was not a war between Germany and the so-called allies. Primarily it was war to the death between Germany and the International Money Power." --William Gayley Simpson, 'Which Way Western Man' (p.642)

Funny how history is indeed written by the victors.  In the scheme of things, Lincoln had far more failures than (lucky) successes.  Here is a sample:

A list of Abraham Lincoln’s Failures and few successes:
  • 1831 - Lost his job
  • 1832 - Defeated in run for Illinois State Legislature
  • 1833 - Failed in business
  • 1834 - Elected to Illinois State Legislature (success)
  • 1835 - Sweetheart died
  • 1836 - Had nervous breakdown
  • 1838 - Defeated in run for Illinois House Speaker
  • 1843 - Defeated in run for nomination for U.S. Congress
  • 1846 - Elected to Congress (success)
  • 1848 - Lost re-nomination
  • 1849 - Rejected for land officer position
  • 1854 - Defeated in run for U.S. Senate
  • 1856 - Defeated in run for nomination for Vice President
  • 1858 - Again defeated in run for U.S. Senate
  • 1860 - Elected President (success)
  • Closet gay.  Lived with a man and shared a bed wit him.  Research it.

No, serious, it was surreal - Michelle with her bangs and an evening gown and what looked like service members in dress uniform in the background.  She was introduced by Jack Nicholson who was drunk, on drugs, or playing a character playing himself.

Leaders?  Oh no, celebrities as leaders - leaders as celebrities.
