Oh my God. Is this not the most beautiful redhead you’ve ever seen? She makes Jessica Rabbit look like a truckload of suck. Jessica Chastain, I am enchanted.
Da f-ck is this? Kristin Chenoweth, girl, you gotta reign it in. You’re dressed like you’re going to a Jennifer Lopez costume party.
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!
