Why do people care about this? It's all about rich actors etc..... stroking each other and we are the pee on's watching. The telecast is always dull and boring. I'll catch the hi-lights like it or not online or on the news. NO interest in watching the broadcast what so ever!

@Paul If you live in Los Angeles, this is the product being made here. It's our hometown! What's the problem with celebrating, watching talented people -- some of them extremely well paid, graceful old-fashioned big cars, pretty fashions, expensive jewelry, handsome men and women dressed to the nines, applauding themselves and each other for a job well done? If you are so jaded, intolerant of "rich people" and distressed by this fabulous annual party, why are you the first to make a comment about something being watched by millions of enthusiastic people around the world?

This will be a great night. The fashions are already stunning! And the Oscar goes to ...
Irene DeBlasio February 25, 2013 at 12:49 AM
@Mike Catherine Zeta-Jones is stunning but I think Charlize Theron and Dior have hit a homerun out of the park! Talk about WOW factor!

Irene, for those natives of Los Angeles this is just routine and nothing new or fancy. For those that do not live in Los Angeles I understand it is a special night. I respect that. And, I respect that those in the entertainment field want acknowledgement of their hard work just like the rest of us plain joe's. I guess there is a somewhat of a backlash that the rich get acknowledged and the poor plain joe's don't.

I'll tell you why Irene, for the same reason that that Socalman or whatever his name was posted about your piece at 3am. Some people are bitter and have nothing else to do. Maybe Mr. Paul here should stop gracing us with his presence and go read Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky since he is obviously a MENSA member and we are idiots for doing something a lot of us consider fun and an annual tradition. Yes there can be stroking and dull parts but I'll happily take those( along with the disappointment of Mr. Afflect not being nominated) and have a fun evening watching regardless.

Right on, Irene.

Every once in awhile they make a good movie but most of the time it's crap! The movies are not cheap either. These actors need to earn there worth of the un Godly amount of money they get for turning out junk! BTW, most of the telecast of the Oscar show are dull & boring. NOT interested in the rich and there huge ego's.

what's wrong with it is they go on and on about Darfur for when they could take care of the whole country in one night on what they spend at the Oscars in one night.

Not a lot of hits but a lot of misses. Why do these women have such trouble dressing nicely at event like this? The one lady who gets it right every time is Selma Hayawk. So VERY beautiful! I didn't care for Miss Theron's dress. It made her look really flat chested! She is to tall to wear the man's hair style. She looked like a pretty gay guy from the neck up. The gal who is in the vampire movies with the broken foot (I forgot her name?) she looked dishoved. Perhaps she just got out of bed and didn't have the time to bother to finished getting ready? Catherine Zeta Jones was a golden disastrous ready for the Bali awards. Fatty Adel looked lovely and as per usual the voice was pitch perfect! Bad's looked lovely as well. She has not gone over board with the inflated lips like another legendary star CHER. I also enjoyed Kelly Rowlands Oscar night dress! She get more lovely with age.Lots of princess dresses last night. Best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence was the bell of the ball however the way the top part of her dress did not do much for her breast. Poor fitting. There was not a lot of cleavage displayed last night. The awrds shows are always more about the fashion then anything else. No one cares who wins what. The next day it's all about what the rich wore so the we can all judge then.

@Paul For someone who was not interested in watching the Academy Awards you certainly seem to have invested quite a bit of time watching and commenting about it. There are certain events which most Americans enjoy watching. NASA orbits, space exploration and the moon landing, some of the Olympics, the Inauguration and the Oscars. If you enjoy sporting events, add those special games like the Super Bowl. Paul, there are certain professions where people must take a huge gamble -- show business and sports to name two. This is not insider trading where people get a tip and make tons on money. You need talent, perserverance and guts -- their shelf life is very short. They can be the flavor of the month and work steadily or flop and not have another job for months. It is the ultimate free-lance and you're only as good as your last jobt. Many writers, directors and actors only get one or two chances a year. Some don't age well and can't sustain the long wait for work. When they do manage to make it they want to enjoy all the perks they can. Why are you so intolerant of people who are successful? Why should they feel ashamed for having devoted their lives to their craft and achieving fame? What is so terrible about earning a lot of money when the stakes are so high? Do you think people like Adele, Barbra Streisand or Daniel Day Lewis woke up one day with all that talent? I think they invested a lot of time and money to develop their craft, hoping to make it!

Ilene brought up a a few worth while actors in her comment directed to my feeling towards the rich, there stroking and huge ego's. Some are humble and worth while but most are talentless ie the Kardasian family etc...... I believe the true legends like Streisand are exceptional. I would go see her films and purchase her music.
Irene DeBlasio February 25, 2013 at 11:22 PM
@Paul Barbra Streisand was born in Brooklyn in 1942. Her father died when she was 4. She began performing as a teenager. She's a singer, composer, musician and has recorded 50 albums. She has won many awards. Do you think someone pays her a weekly paycheck or guarantees her healthcare? She's 70 years old and we hope she's able to continue singing and writing music forever, but it may not be possible. She had to work hard to maintain her voice, her skills, her craft. She's also very rich. What is your problem with self-made wealth? She didn't rob a bank and she didn't take money from the government or anybody else. She has donated land and given to charitable causes. If she wants to live on the beach in Malibu, buy expensive furniture, eat well or drive a big fancy car, why shouldn't she? Why is there such a prejudice against talented, successful, wealthy people who have worked hard to get somewhere in life and always paid their own way?

You want an award show for the poor?
George February 26, 2013 at 03:06 AM
Didn't you read my response? Yes, I know all about Bab's. am a fan. She is exceptional! My beef is with the Kardashian family and people like them in show business.
Lori N. February 26, 2013 at 05:39 AM
We love Barbra Streisand.

Thanks for remembering me. I'm touched. Truly. Your obsession with me is strange but flattering. I'm not into dudes but if I was you'd totes be at the top of the list. Although your negativity is a mood killer but thanks for proving that Irene was right and that manners are dead, as you well prove.
