I don't know anybody in real life who takes awards shows seriously.

Of course they don't like the cold they are genetically adapted to warmer climates. Just like I don't like the heat because my family is genetically adapted to the cold. 90 degree weather is the equivalent to walking into an oven for me.


70 degree weather is hot for me XD my body doesn't regulate temperature correctly so I ALWAYS stay hot, fuck 100-110 that's how it gets here in the summer, it was 80 on x mas eve lol


Yup 60-70 degree is ideal. My body produces TONS of heat so I burn up in the summer.

Janet Hubert doesn't even agree with it. And she worked with Will Smith as Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.

Hell YEAH, I'm boycotting the Oscars this year:

The absence of Inside Out from Best Picture this year is a crime, an insult and represents a sad cancer in the current Oscars--The voters made every effort to recognize it this year by preserving the ten-nomination rule, which would have allowed animated films to compete for Picture, but the minute the headlines hit that the Golden Globes wouldn't nominate it, well, that was that, game over.
Inside Out was the best commercial American movie of 2015, and if the job of the Oscars is now to parrot and rubber-stamp the NBOR, a handful of critics' awards and the sickeningly celeb-sycophantic Globes, then it no longer deserves to represent the...

....


....

(...Oh, wait, that's not it?
(Googles headlines) What?? No, seriously, THAT'S it?--Spike mad that Crapful 8, directed by Sergio ADHD-head, didn't get nominated and his own movie didn't either? Oh, man, that sucks...Will someone just stuff that Yankees cap in his mouth already??)

What's sad about the Oscars is that my favourite actor Leonardo DiCaprio has never won an Oscar in his entire life.

I stopped reading when I saw " lack of diversity among nominees"

The racial card pulled once again.

Stop crying and make a good movie then! And no, I don't mean Will Smith, or Morgan freeman.

You know what, there's not enough sharks with lasers attached to their heads for 2015

Fuckin boycott!

What's sad is we thought Catch Me If You Can and Gangs of New York would be nominated for Picture just because he was in them, and a past-winner directed them.
Even sadder is that The Revenant was, just because the Birdman director was the past-winner this time.

It's those old Titanic issues buried in our DNA, a combination of resentment and awe in trying to predict the "inevitable" by causing it.

I'm boycotting CrunchyRoll because there are too many asians in anime. (Even if they all look white.)

EDIT: Relevant video from my favorite Romanian.

Kind of. I've seen people joke saying "What if they make a movie about how Leo never won an Oscar, and the actor who played Leo won an Oscar?"

I personally think that Leo is too over qualified to win one. They just nominate him to make other nominees feel better when they get the award and not Leo.

Lets be real here... Will Smiths wife is just salty because her husband wasn't nominated.

I hear there will be ill-tempered mutant sea bass. So it's a step in the right direction.

I've been scratching my head trying to think of a black actor or a movie with black actors in it that was really Oscar worthy....

And.... nothing....

.... maybe that's why they weren't nominated. Just maybe...

But, yeah sure, if you want to pretend that it's a race thing, throw a tantrum, pull your race card, and demand "equality" (by equality, you actually want preferential treatment that allows someone of your race to be nominated REGARDLESS of actual performace).... Yeah, sure, go ahead and do that. Meanwhile, even another black actress is calling you on it.

Just so you know "actin a fool" doesn't take good acting, sweetheart.
