Do People Really watch The Academy Awards

Ok I'll admitt I watched a few minutes of some of the people walking down the red carpet as they entered the building but stopped as I started to BARF. Who really cares about these people? They act as if they think their gods gift to earth and look down upon the people who worship them. They must have low esteem because they have a different award show about every week so they can tell themself how great they are. And what about the poverotsee (spelling) who snoop around all the time noosing into there business like a peeping tom. I think their just as bad if not worse than them. I just don't get how people floock to see these people and they coud not give a rats ass about their fans. I know they thank their fans but what they are really saying is "thank you to all those low lifes who went to see my great movie and voted for me, and thank you for the millions of dollars I've made off you but would never have anything in common with you common folks. Buy now and get the hell out of my way". OK, thats my rant for today.

Re: Do People Really watch The Academy Awards

I don't watch but I do know that a lot of people who watch it. The show itself boring but I like hearing/reading about the movies and actors that won. This way I can make an informed decision about what movies to rent (Netflix). Of course, movies that win aren't necessarily good movies.

I was disappointed with the Last King of Scotland. To be honest, I thought the doctor was the main character of the movie and not Idi Amin. Forest Whitaker did a great job but they didn't show case him enough IMO.

I'll have to checkout The Departed. Also, Babel was a good movie but it definitely was a clone of Crash.

Re: Do People Really watch The Academy Awards

it always seems like the winners have either been around forever( like they are deserved an award) or the movie that wins, either sucks to high heaven, or i have never even heard of it. but i did like the departed. even though i don't think much of DiCaprio, he did a helluva job in that movie

I mean i i guess i can see where you're coming from with that one, the similarities between the ending and the overall scheme of a cop infilitrating the a gang, but then again thats a scheme in many movies... all in all they are different movies just from the way they are told, the plot, and the devolopment of charectors.

Re: Do People Really watch The Academy Awards

The key question is whether anyone has ever seen any of the movies they actually give these silly awards to. I'd say by and large, my answer is "No" and when I have seen awarded movies in the past, its usually a regrettable experience.

The only reason to care about the academy awards last night is to see if the ground game attack of Cars would run rapshod over the poor run defense by the penguins of Happy Feet. But of course, the Cars coach kept calling passes and lost the game.
