5Ethan Hawke Hates The Oscars As Much As I do

ethan hawke lol

Ethan Hawke has a little something to say about The Oscars. Spoiler alert: he hates them. Like, a lot. Is he just jealous? Who cares, he has good points. From The Huffington Post,

People want to turn everything in this country into a competition. It’s so asinine … if you look at how many forgettable, stupid movies have won Oscars and how many mediocre performers have Oscars above their fireplace. Making a priority of chasing these fake carrots and money and dubious accolades, I think it’s really destructive.

Unfortunately somewhere his publicist had a heart attack and this backpeddling occured,

I think The Oscars do a very good job in representing much of the great work in a given year. Inevitably though, many great films and performances are not recognized and can be overlooked due to the mass marketing and PR machines that march through the awards season. I don’t mean to take anything away from the genuine and deserved excitement that every nominee should feel.

Dude, stand by your statements! Last year, Joaquin Phoenix said of The Oscars,

I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s total, utter bullshit, and I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t believe in it. It’s a carrot, but it’s the worst-tasting carrot I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. I don’t want this carrot. It’s totally subjective. Pitting people against each other … It’s the stupidest thing in the whole world.

EFF YEAH! Phoenix is nominated this year for The Master. I hope he doesn’t show up, to really stand by his statement. Or if he does show up, I hope it’s in a t-shirt and jeans and he calls everybody “bro.”

HAPPY OSCAR WEEKEND!

4Seth MacFarlane Hates Us; Will End Oscars With Musical Performance

seth macfarlane

Seth MacFarlane, we get it: you like to sing. You really, really like to sing. You sing in every single episode of Family Guy. As several difference characters. Sometimes at once. You released an album of your singing, Music Is Better Than Words. Your song from your film Ted (Everybody Needs a Best Friend) is nominated for an Oscar.

“I thought it would be over by now, but it won’t stop.” — Destiny’s Child, Survivor.

Instead of ending the show with the award for best picture like it’s always been done, Oscar host Seth MacFarlane is going to treat us with a musical number. I’m guessing he’s also going to open with a musical number. And I’m guessing he will find a way to put another musical number in the middle. Also Barbra Streisand is going to sing and you know Anne Hathway is going to find a way. Where there’s a will… there’s a Hathaway.

Okay, anyway… Oscar producers said in USA Today:

After the Best Picture award has been given, Seth and Kristin [Chenoweth] will perform a special number and we think it will be a ‘can’t miss’ moment…There are going to be some big surprises that no one will see coming.

Yeah, I can totally miss it. The audience that has to sit there and watch it though? Probably not so much. Can you imagine having just lost and then Seth MacFarlane not letting you leave because he has to sing for six minutes?

Whatever, I hate the Oscars and there’s probably nothing he could do that I would like. Unless he said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, DAVID BOWIE!!!” and that was the surprise. That would be cool.
