Mornin' Sausage

Last night was the first time I’ve watched the Oscars from start to finish in I don’t know how long. Stewart managed to make the whole bit a little less schmaltzy, and bringing Marketa Irglova back out so she could get in a proper thank you was just a wonderful moment. Overall the show was just a good reminder that 2007 was a pretty damn good year for movies.

On to the links.

George Clooney’s Oscar picks – He blew it on Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. In your face, Mr. Perfect*

Of course, on the opposite end of the spectrum there lay: The Razzies.

SXSW kicks off March 12th, but you can sneak in an early taste via the festival’s artist page, which features free (and DRM-less) Mp3s from the 764 artists schedule to appear. Want the whole enchilada? Greg Hewgill put together a 3.5gb torrent for your enjoyment.

    And of course, this also just happened to be the lowest rated Oscar telecast in the history of recorded television, which means EVER. This despite all of the “excitement” over the writers strike just having been settled and thus getting cuntwaddles like you all a quiver with massive boners with glistening drops of pre-jizz oozing from the tip of your diamond hard blood engorged cock.

    Guess what?

    No one cares.

    No one gave a fuck.

    The Oscars got lower ratings then your run of the mill episode of American idol.

    Know why?

    ‘Cause the American public could give a fuck about “artsy/indie” films. To the American public artsy=3 hours of people dressed in very uncomfortable looking clothing yapping at each other in incomprehensible British accents. They sure as fuck aren’t going to shell out $18 in ticket and snacks to torture themselves with that.

    To them, “indie”=amateur everything. Shitty acting, shitty directing, shitty camerawork. Again, the American public isn’t going to shell out money or time or watch award shows devoted to that shit.

    NO ONE went to see any of the picture nominated for Best Picture this year because they were all boring amateur pieces of shit.

    You want to know the last time the American public gave anything resembling a fuck about the Oscars? 1998, when Titanic won.

    Yes, I’m such an Oscar maniac; hence my not watching them for years on end. Sweet salty doughnuts, but you’re an idiot.
