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.

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

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

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'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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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...

The fact that blacks were enslaved by blacks is not lost on me.  It is lost on the majority of society, however.

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.
