Fuck the Oscars.
Why are we racing? Why are we constantly poking and prodding each other, tripping each other right as we're crossing the finish line? How did we get to a point where "Oscar-bait" is a recognized sub-genre of Cinema? Why are we trusting a boring-taste-having gang of FOOLS to tell us who lives and who dies?Read More

I think I have finally found a way to survive the Oscars...by watching it in ROBE with copious amounts of whiskey.
With my completed ballot sheet, a taco buffet within reach, and whiskey cocktail in hand- I was ready to enjoy the Oscars in comfort.

The person that can stay awake thru the entire event definitely deserves a shiny lapel pin. Viewing OSCARS in ROBE was the perfect solution to the madness.

It’s not that I don’t like any of the nominees. I do. I like the nominees a lot. But there are a lot of people not nominated who I think should’ve been. Or at the very least, could’ve been.

Even goddamn Charlotte Rampling had to go off and say something. Something extremely, ridiculously dumb. I’m not going to use this (very small platform) to give my overall opinion on #Oscarssowhite. Because it doesn’t fucking matter. And, more importantly, the Academy Awards are only a small problem at the tail end of a much larger issue.Read More
