The Oscar Winners (If Twitter Had Its Way)

Tyler Durden's picture

With all eyes dismally fixed on Eastern Europe and the esclating tensions between the world's most powerful nations, we thought perhaps a little levity was appropriate. "Way To Blue" trawls the social media stratosphere of intellect and calculates a "desire to win" index that summarizes who we, the lowly members of the public, would most like to win the celebrated Academy Awards. It appears, in an odd coincidence to real-life, the debt-serfs of the world would most like to see "12 Years A Slave" win for Best Film.

Art contests are stupid.

Winner:  Most outstanding performance: A tie for Amy Adams' tits, which were hanging out and standing firm in every scene of American Hustle.

The last movie I saw in a theater was Flight. Denzel was alright.

Interesting to see Kim Novak as a presenter.   Fun fact about Kim Novak: She (?) is a hermaphodite with both male and female  sex organs.

That's it!? How does it end? What does The 0'Bamabot have to say?

I would expect that the Individual vs. The State undercurrent of Dallas Buyer's Club would hit home with most ZH'ers.

Best example of cultural marxism I've seen in a while. White male subordinate panics and and turns into a know-nothing sniveling bitch. Has to be saved by the calm, always in control black man. Only Hollywood could come up with that shit. Haven't seen a movie in a theater in 10 years and stopped watching all the Hollywood/TV mind control horseshit. Life is good.

So the "source" is "Way to Blue"? Don't they mean "Way Too Blue"? This Hollywood liberal lovefest has nothing to do with talent and everything to do with political correctness. The only reason Ellen Degeneres is on anything is because she suffers from penis-aversion issues. She's certainly not funny, and she's definitely not particularly talented. I find that if she's in anything or on any show, I'm not going to be watching it, and I feel richer for having made that choice.

I hate to use this cliche, but  I can't up-vote you enough, sir. I was about to leave the same comment.

We are inverted. I repeat, we are inverted.

There are a few details you guys are missing but that's okay.

Clueless Economist's picture

WTF???  I have more interest in a steaming pile of dog shit on the Venice Pier than these hollywood assholes. I honestly have no idea who these people are and have zero interest in finding out.  I know I am a 1%er when it comes to these hollywood liberal Obama pricks, 99% know who they are, I do not.

All contests which are decided by a vote are idiotic. Nothing more that beauty contests.

So, silly newbie here and couldn't find a better place to put this ... go figure LOL

I'm an audiophile and the only reason I watch the academy awards is for the music.

I thought U2 and Bono 'brought it'  nice.nice.NICE!!

but OMG, to get to hear Bette Midler deliver the soundtract for those in the industry that passed?


Are you kidding me??  Bette is STILL a diva and proved it tonite with her cover of Wind Beneath My Wings


JLee2027's picture

99% liked Ellen? the lesbian Satan worshiper? Oh, ok.

Ignatius's picture

Cutting edge, ZH, cutting edge.

His name was Tyler Durden.

fonzannoon's picture

I'm the first ones to throw stones, but Tyler made it clear this was in the name of levity. I have seen none of these movies. I took my kid to see the lego movie this weekend. It was funny to see Hollywood spend 2 hours calling their target audience stupid brainless sheep and the audience laughing at it, not realizing the joke was on them.

Ralph Spoilsport's picture

I wish I had seen the Lego movie last night instead of "Monument Men" which put me to sleep. The kids saw the Lego movie and loved it.

Ignatius's picture

It's over.  When I joined there was a math requirement.

His name was Tyler Durden.

fonzannoon's picture

I hear you, but the math requirement was for the commenters, not the Tylers. Today if we had a test it would be with blocks and 50% of us would still fail.

Many years ago I took my kid to go see the pokemon movie.I experienced a time dilation equivalent to traveling at 99.7 percent the speed of light!!!

You should be thankful - I ended up having a siezure!

I had my seizure during reruns of Thomas the Tank Engine.I was at home with a sick kid and he played the same episode (vhs tape) all day long...

Ranger4564's picture

Agreed. The decay is faster than I feared.

I will let you know if I want anyone to win. No need to predict my supposed interest.

Is there nothing better to spend one's time on than to engineer our demise and to record it in HD? Nothing?

Oh goody, a 0.01% thread ;-)

"With all eyes dismally fixed on Eastern Europe and the esclating tensions between the world's most powerful nations, "

So that would be between Russia and who exactly ?


hound dog vigilante's picture

American Hustle was utterly forgettable... below average movie - should have zero nominations.  That AH is even discussed says alot about the irrelevance of Oscars/Academy/Hollywood.

grunk's picture

I wanted the film that got the Libyans all riled up to win.

A Nanny Moose's picture

...and they didn't like that video, why were they not rioting after Ann Barnhardt's Youtube, bacon book marked conflagration?

automaton's picture

When will they make a film about the enslavement of Europeans by the Berbers?  Or the enslavement of English undesirables and street children in the early North American colonies.  Or the enslavement of the Irish in North America and the Caribbean?  Or the enslavement of Malians by Malians?  Horse shit movies like 12 Years will continue to propagate the illusion amongst black Americans that they have been the only ones to be enslaved (by whites).  ... Not that we aren't all enslaved nowadays anywayssss.

Urban Redneck's picture

Actually they were enslaved by other blacks and a few Arabs, in part because those Africans thought that the Africans they were enslaving had traits desirable in slaves which would in turn fetch a better price at market, before they were shipped of to the new world, where their children were born into bondage and kept in slavery, but not enslaved.

Yes there were dregs thrown in, because there was also a volume dimension to the business, in addition to the tribal/clan/personal rivalries that provided additional opportunities, but this was foremost a business, and these tribes had been trading goods, and battling among themselves for dominance, for centuries if not millennia. It's actually quite fucking racist to disrespect the sophistication of what these black Africans were doing centuries ago.

In retrospect- the Africans' judgement in regards to African-Americans being amenable to slavery has been demonstrated correct. But that doesn't explain white, yellow, red, and brown Americans' proclivity towards enslavement by the Statists, at least the black Americans have an excuse.

But, what does it matter know? Most Americans are slaves enjoying their Hollyweird fantasies and propaganda about what happened yesterday and how the world works today...

kchrisc's picture

Sorry, Best Shitiest-Actor in a leading propaganda role goes to Anderson Cooper. In a supporting propaganda role, the Best Shitiest-Actor would be Piers Morgan. They both get my "Blue-Screen" award, which is shaped like a piece of shit. Also nominated, Robie Parker, Gene Rosen, and the Carlos Arredondo and Jeff Bauman duo.

Good b. job guys.

Anyone else noticed how Steve McQueen looks WAY different to how he looked in The Great Escape?



Ignatius's picture

He's put on some weight, no doubt.

Moe Howard's picture

Dead has been hard on him.

That too, I should have mentioned it.

American Hustle was watchable. Bale is a decent actor. 

1stepcloser's picture

The real Abscam was more watchable

loveyajimbo's picture

It would be PC racist for a non negro story to win...  Viva Obongo!!  America:  5 years a slave... and counting...

Noob1011's picture

A non negro story did win "Broke Back Mountain"
Best supporting actor Barry Ovomit.
