Why Should I Care About The Oscar?

Tue Mar 07, 2006 12:49 am

Really, why care about it???
I didn´t even know that it was last night, I just found out this morning when connecting to the internet.
Now, what is the big deal of it??All movies that win have some "other" motivations to win, like Titanic, The Aviator and life is beautiful, just to quote some I remember, all crap movies that have a much better selling direction than a movie direction.

Why is the big fuzz all about???

If you don't care then don't read about it, listen to it, or watch it. You have to ability to change webpages, radio stations, or tv channels.

It is an evening of self promotion for the movie industry that many do care about although many do not as well.

For your sake, the Oscar Statue detaches from it's base, wherein lies a hollow cavity to hide your best ganja, therefore, you do have a reason to care now...

You shouldn't care. This is an industry of attention whores that dream up ways of drawing more attention to themselves. Can you imagine if other industries thought up of special awards for themselves and then made a big deal on tv?

Intoducing the Stinky Awards.. A trash hauler from New Jersey is nominated for a "Stinky" for his can handling technique. It's not just a pick up and dump. It's a true art form. (This award has already been fixed. A hauler from Ohio can't win.)

The Greeter awards.... Wal-Mart greeters around the world are judged by their peers for the best "Have a nice day".

The Shovel awards will be broadcast live from West Virginia on CMT this year. The best coal miners in the industry are represented. Many of our nominees will win their awards posthumously this year.

I'm sure we could think of more ways to drive the actors out of business and make them realise that they are not special. Oh wait, reality tv is already doing that.

Why should we care whether you do or do not care?

I don´t, but everywhere I look it´s there, I even know Reese Whiterspon won for best actress, even tough I only recognize her from having a nice cheat area.

 checkmark !!

Inasmuch as it is my business to decide what people should and should not care about, I say you shouldn't care at all. I know I don't. I didn't even know the Oscar ceremony was happening last night until my grandmother called and happened to mention that she had been watching it.
