Which of the Best Picture nominees do you think are propaganda? Argo and Zero Dark Thirty have actually been called ‘right wing propaganda’ by the MSM. Les Miz, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook certainly aren’t. Nor are the others as far as I can tell.

Haven’t watched since they (in the audience—I’m talking to YOU, Nick Nolte!) gave the cold shoulder to Elia Kazan.

Artistic talent means nothing-political propoganda rules.

In other words, that was the year it became sickeningly obvious to me that commies infested hollywood.

“Curfew” won the live action short... which has five really fine films...

Curfew was the only American nomination... it was the story of a young man, about to commit suicide, who is saved by his sister’s need for a baby-sitter... and, the relationship he quickly strikes up with his niece.....

I thought it was the weakest of the bunch... but, it was still good.

My how the mighty have fallen. I didn’t even know the Oscars were on tonight. No idea.

Not a care, either.

I agree... but, the MIGHTY that has fallen is.. Free Republic. It's been years since we had a server capable of supporting a LIVE THREAD... I've really missed it.

Maybe.. this is GOOD SIGN of things to come... seems to be holding up.

Haven’t seen them, but I gather from comments here on FR that Zero Dark Thirty may be a real picture. Argo perhaps as well.

Have to see both yet though to be honest.

However on balance Hollywood is so breathtakingly biased toward one side, as to be unbearable.

Just worth commenting on. :D

I liked the bit with McFarlane and William Shatner in character as Capt. Kirk. Wow. Shatner's really starting to show his years! McFarlane's "We saw your boobs" song had me laughing. In fact, Seth McFarlane has been cracking me up pretty consistently.

I have a feeling he's not going to be invited back though.

I almost shut it off after 20 minutes but ended up loving ‘Beasts of The Southern Wild’. I’d give it best picture, actor, and actress. Some might think it’s propaganda for the current administration because it’s about a poor, black family. But the fact is that the characters in the movie are ferociously independent and would detest Obama in reality.

I agree with you. Rarely are Christian themes played out like they were in Les Mis— perhaps ignoring the bad rewarding the good is starting to turn things around somewhat.

I was enjoying Liam Neeson’s presentation until he made the comment about the film Lincoln dealing with a familiar topic, congressional gridlock. Grrrr.

The last time we went to the theater was last year to see Act of Valor, that had all those real Navy Seals doing the primary roles. We loved it precisely because it wasn’t phony.

I love the stage production so much I almost didn’t see it. In the end, I’m glad I did. It was encouraging to see people keep their faith in the face of such intense suffering. And especially for Hollywood to actually celebrate people of God rather than ridicule us.

Huh? I've participated on scores of live threads on FR in the last few years. I think I've only seen the site choke up once during that time.

She may be old and cranky, and held together with duct tape and rubber bands, but she gets the job done for the most part.

I agree with you that a serious hardware upgrade is long overdue, and hopefully, John's new installation will make a difference. According to Jim, the server in place now is just temporary until the gear John wants arrives later.

I don't give a rat's ass for the f'n liberals in Hollywood.

Genisus 19: 24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;

25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:

28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

The Academy always overlooks the classy films that ladies go to at the matinee - The Impossible starring Naomi Watts, who did get a best actress nomination, and Ewan MacGregor, about a family seaparated when the 2004 tsunami hit. Heartwarming true story that I’d recommend you see when it’s out on DVD.

I love Family Guy so I tuned in to see Seth MacFarlane. He’s very funny, I’m not disappointed - I love how he’s mocks them all. If it weren’t for MacFarlane I’d skip it as usual.

Some folks have had trouble commenting on live threads while using wireless handheld devices like cell phones and tablets. Those on laptops and desktops haven't had nearly the same experience during live threads.

That is, unless you're using a dinosaur computer on a dial-up connection. Those folks have also had trouble keeping up on live threads.
