I guess Oscars are approaching...perhaps this Sunday...not really sure. When I was a kid, I would stay up to watch them. I wanted to see the beautiful dresses and hairstyles and what stars were there. Now, I just don't care, and I'm certainly not going to let my daughters watch. Oscar night once meant something, now it is nothing more than a political statement...We Are Better Than You America...so we are enlightened...deal with it. Hollywood stars once had class, poise, and elegance. Now, it is about seeing how revealing they can make a dress that will barely pass standards for television. It is pathetic really. Besides they reward people that don't really deserve it. A few years back, where was the Best Director nod for Baz Lurhman for Moulin Rouge? And today, where is the Best Movie nod for Walk the Line? Instead a movie about gay sheep herders...THEY ARE NOT COWBOYS!...will probably win in a couple of categories. SORRY JAKE, you don't deserve it. You got paid to love a boy, that makes you a whore not a good actor. Joaquin Phoenix should get Best Actor, but because of a "progressive" agenda, he won't. So, farewell to Hollywood, enjoy it while you can, it won't last. Australia and New Zealand are way better. I, along with the rest of the Posse, will be renting Walk the Line and remembering Oscars gone-by when talent was worth a nod and character was more than what you played in a movie. By the way, Sheep Herders of that NOT COWBOY MOVIE, you don't deserve to wipe the boots of Clint Eastwood.
