    What? It's the truth. It's the worst kind of Oscar bait... and they're falling for it.

    I doubt Precious will win much Oscar-wise. It hasn't so far with anything else.

    I saw it this weekend, and it's been a while since I've had the emotional reaction that I had toward that film

    Well, even one Oscar is too many.

    I am so sorry... so so sorry. [/Tenth Doctor]

    I have absolutely no desire to see Precious, but Lee Daniels was on The Daily Show a couple weeks ago and he seems like a nice guy, so I wouldn't mind seeing it win some Oscars. The Oscars are meaningless to me anyway.

    Yeah, I generally don't put any real weight to awards or anything. I still follow them and like rooting for stuff I think should win though. Well, I did anyway.

    So, Corp, are they going to close this place as soon as it hits 10,000 posts?

    I'll be closing it, yes. If I catch it right on the 10,000th post, I'll do it then. Otherwise, it'll be whenever I happen to see that it's over 10k. Hype policy, and supposedly it reduces lag, which can only be a good thing at this point. :o
    I don't even know what you're talking about. All I know about the movie is that it involves rape and it has a bunch of actors who aren't really actors, like Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz.

    That's not too far from where I was raised. I've been there. Decent place. :up:
    D9 was pretty good, but I'm pretty sure it isn't really considered Oscar worthy.
    Whoa whoa! And -I'm- racist? :o

    Damn, that's just a few posts away too. I hope Womp is working hard...or barely working on the next one :awesome:

    Nah, I actually hope it catches it in time.

    Her mom rapes her in the literal sense?

    Hmm. Either you or Gilpesh are a *****e depending on the veracity of that statement...
    Apparently, Helen Mirren was originally going to play her role. Jon Stewart was like, "So, after Helen Mirren called and said she couldn't do it, were you just like, 'You know who I need? Get me the girl from Glitter.'" :funny:

    No. I don't like it because it is clear Oscar Bait bull ****. Let's take a look at the checklist:

    Ugly protagonist. Check.
    People playing against type to win awards. Check.
    Lots of horrible things happen to the protagonist. Check.
    More horrible things happen to the protagonist. Check.
    More people playing against type in a role that tries to inspire the protagonist. Check.
    More horrible things happen to the protagonist. Check.
    Movie ends on an even bigger down note (usually something bad happening to the protagonist). Check.





    It reminds me of Blazing Saddles when Hedy... I mean Hedley Lamarr says, "And I am most certainly risking a nomination for best supporting actor!"
