Oscar Fallout Boy

My Thoughts on the Oscars

1) Ellen blew it. She has as much chance as hosting again as Mel Gibson.
2) Jack Nicholson should start bleaching his teeth or drink less cheerleader urine.
3) The opening looked like a film made by a slumming actor for a cell phone. They’re nominated for Oscars but they’re human. Genius. Those stars actually had to come in and tape the thing on an off day like they were on some sort of Canadian Awards Show. Humiliating.
4) Ellen was wearing my jacket. I can’t look at red velvet the same way ever again.
5) The most beautiful woman was the model standing behind the Best Cinematography winners.
6) Catherine Deneuve stole the show with her dress with the pierced breast broach. She and her co-presenter, the Japanese actor from ‘Iowa Jima’whose name escapes me looked like they had just had twisted Franco/Japo sex where blood was drawn. It was such a ‘Hunger’moment and definitely too foreign for the room. That’s when I could feel the audience pull back from all the immigrants on stage, even the Canadians which I think affected the reaction to Celine. Next year it will be Ron Howard and Rob Reiner’s year and Debbie Allen will be brought back to choreograph.
7) I say wear what you like but if I hosted the Oscars I wouldn’t wear a dress, at least not the entire show and I wouldn’t wear runners with it. Do Lesbians have to always have to dress comfortably? How come they love to camp and climb mountains and generally do lots of genuinely uncomfortable things like fire people but they won’t wear heels. This isn’t day time television for housewives. This is night time television for fags.
8) Beyonce is the perfect woman. She is cinammon. I want to be a mug of mulled cider and have her put her cinnamon stick in me. Have a field day Freud.
9) There were so many foreigners the crowd was looking like the English people at the Canadian Genies clapping for all the French winners they’ve never heard of and pretending it doesn’t bother them.
10) Pilobolus were magic. It was funny when Ellen said, “They’re naked.” It would have been nice if she’d done it again. That’s not fair. She was funny a few times. The Jews and Gays and boys named Oscar joke was funny but she lost them when she started to dance. And can we agree that black choirs have to go. Even in black churches. Surely they’re tired of all the swaying and the clapping. There are other ways for white performers to ignite a fire under people's seats and I don't mean arson. I mean costume changes and choreography. And by choreography I don't mean freestyle soccer mom frugging after a wine cooler, I mean actual steps rigorously rehearsed under a sadistic gay latin dance master. What's that? My best friend Marco who just dropped by to return my bubble maker, just told me that there weren’t any black choirs on the telecast but I think he’s incorrect. He was drunker than me which proves my point and brings me to my next one.
11) I don’t really watch the Oscars. I talk and judge and drink and laugh with my friends and then I look at the highlights the next day to see if what I think I saw is actually what I saw. It usually isn’t but that doesn’t stop me from pronouncing hither and yon.
12) That being said, the funniest moment was Meryl Streep giving Anne Hathaway and the other one the Prada glare. That’s what Britney needs. Can you imagine her looking up from doing a line off of Paris’s tit and seeing Miss Streep looking at her like that. It would be better than rehab. It wouldn’t stop Paris though. She’d laugh it off, probably call Meryl a hack and keep sucking, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Gabcast! ewe #30 - John Belushi

Mouth Congress goes down into the muck and slime of Hollywood perversion to get at the root of self destruction. Guest vocalist Gaventry Glossary, known to legions as the Mad Duke of Fuck and my third cousin, downs a bottle of Jack Daniels and heads on down to the Devil's rec room. There the ghoulish bass rhythms of actual vampire Jack Smith and the crazed propulsive beats of Hale Hardy on drums carry Gaventry down even further into the abyss until the entire Mouth Congress legacy hangs by a thread over a pool of vomit. This song cost one of our members very dearly when Gaventry lost control of his voice during a performance in Chi-town and hit a note so high it severed backup vocalist Lynne Shawshank's achilles tendon, ruining her career as an ankle model. The investigation said that it was more likely the shattered glass from his dropped bottle of Jack Daniels but I'm in the business of legend building not CSI. Besides we'll never really know as Gaventry dissapeared soon after never to be heard from again or at least that's the legend. Others say he works in Orilia at Starbucks as a cafetiere. which for a man like Coventry is the same thing.

Hey Buddy. Have a terrific day today. I mean it.

I didn't watch them. I'd get too distracted by the tiny, gold man being tightly squeezed by much larger, gold men.

Well, I was pretty drunk and it's been 24 hours but I'll try to see what memories of the Gay Super Bowel '07 I can conjour up.

1. ) I'm so glad that 'Borat' didn't win best screenplay. Someone needs to tell Sacha Baron Cohen that Yakov Smirnoff called and said that he wants his career back.

2.) I am also glad that the uber pretentious and depressing 'Babel' didn't win best picture. (Hey, Brad Pitt, if you want to impress me with your humanitarism try not cheating on your wife and then impregnating your mistress before the divorce is final.)

3.) I was thrilled that Martin Scorcese finally won but they should have lasered 'The Departed' off of his trophy and replaced it with 'Taxi Driver' or 'Goodfellas' instead.

4.)Beyonce is gorgeous but I think of her more as the nutmeg in my egg nog.

5.) My vote for best dressed is Penelope Hayek. Who cares if no one can understand what the fuck you're saying when you look that good!

6.) Randy Newman. What can I say? I'm sure he's a nice guy and all but the truth is this........

The other night I downloaded the Jonestown Massacre "death tape". That is an audio recording of the last 45 minutes of the mass murder/suicide while it was in progress. As horrific and disturbing as that was to listen to, it was still more pleasurable to me than listening to any song that Randy Newman ever put out.

7.) I think I liked Ellen's performance much more than you did. Still, I have high hopes that one day the great Buddy Cole will get to do the honors of hosting the Academy Awards!


I read in yesterday's newspaper that Mark McKinney's T.V. show is getting cancelled. I don't mean to sound like an insensitve bitch but I really hope this means we are one step closer to getting a KITH tour!

Alister said...

Penelope Hayek and Salma Cruz have interchangeable names but never the less they both look fantastic.

I would love to see KITH tour again. Maybe Buddy can get them back together. He could host the tour.

I missed the awards show. I was still drunk however if that counts.

Tad. said...

I wouldn't feel bad about missing the award shows. It's not rational that people outside the entertainment industry give any sort of fuck-- flying or otherwise-- about that ceremony. That it's watched by the average schmuck is just an indication of how incredibly awkward our celebrity voyeurism has become.

And Buddy, have a spectacular evening tonight. I mean it.

Tavie said...

It's not Mark's tv show so much as Sorkin's mistake. Mark did the best he could, but there's only so much rewriting of the arguments that Sorkin had with Kristen Chenoweth so that Sorkin comes out the winner that anyone can take.

Sigh. I had such hopes.

Re: Oscars, I'm pissed that:
1) No Chris Penn in the death montage.
2) They played "You Can't Stop the Beat" in the background when Travolta walked out, which confirms the rumour that I heard about him being in the movie-of-the-musical-of-the-movie (Did we learn NOTHING from the horror that was "The Producers"?) of "Hairspray", and I want to know why Harvey's not in the film version.

Harvey is the new Julie Andrews in this regard until I hear otherwise. I am very Put Out.
