Academy Awards

Postby Gail_K » Jan 4th, 2019, 9:48 am

I am happy to hear that Kevin Hart will be hosting the awards again. I will watch them this year but the minute they bring politics into it, I will be shutting it off. So sick of hearing about Trump. Lets get down to what the awards are all about and forget everthing else. Jokes are fine but I am sick of hearing all the ureteric.

I totally agree with you Gail.K

I am more interested in your use of the word "ureteric" as I have never seen it used other than in medical texts. If you are implying that Trump political commentary is pissy, again, I agree with you. :biggrin:

Hart hasn't been confirmed as host ... he's reconsidering.

Prodded by Ellen DeGeneres, comic Kevin Hart says he’ll reconsider his decision to step down as host of the Academy Awards.

Hart had backed away two days after being named host last month when some homophobic tweets he had made a decade ago resurfaced. But DeGeneres urged him to host the show during an interview that aired Friday on her talk show.

The motion picture Academy has not named a replacement host for its Feb. 24 awards show.

I haven't watched the Academy Awards in years. It's just one big self-congratulatory talk show. I haven't been interested in the bulk of their movies, or the celebrities; I find them highly overrated.

The host is a comedian, largest supply of material is usually the current US president.
But maybe this comedian will go in a different direction.

I stopped watching the Oscars years ago. Tired of the politically correct BS and phonyness of the whole ordeal.

The movies that win I've never heard of. They are released 2 months before the deadline and are already a set formula to win or be nominated. Case in point: Mary Poppins Returns was nominated for Acadamy Awards before it was even released in theatres! It has horrible critics scores, but they promote it by mentioning the nominations to sell tickets.

Who are you wearing red carpet BS. Who gives a s**t?

There hasn't been an original idea come out of Hollywood in decades which is why they continuosly pump out crappy sequels and reboot movies every 5 years. Brutal.

The Oscars is waaaaay past its prime and its ratings decline every year. Time to put this thing out of its misery.I could go on but.......

That's my rant for the evening. [icon_lol2.gif]
