I have not followed the Oscars since. Its a Mad,Mad,Mad World was not nominated.

I too have no idea as to who was nominated for what in the entertainment world...I get all the entertainment that I need from the Nashville City Paper...when it comes to persistent trolls,we have academy award material right here....Most Delusional - Rasputin... Most Obsessed - Yogiman and Most Clueless - Budlight.

But you beat them all, Loner. Hang in there.

Loner gets the prize for Best Buzz even though he tends to bogart. :)

For once I agree with Grigori Yefimovich: who cares?
Next topic please.

LONER.........If I lived in the same "void" as you do I would probably think that delusional people were everywhere

Thank you, Kosh.... I am speechless....except to credit the nuns...the Army....and Cheech & Chong.

By: Loner on 1/11/13 at 7:38

Most Loyal Bushite.....the envelope please.....(drum roll)....and the winner is....Ben Dover.

The Rasp used Google maps to discover that I live in a void.....dammit, the Mossad put my vital statistics online.....oy! What's next? Armed drones patrolling my property? Where's my tin-foil helmet...I gotta fight back.

Have no fear Loner, I have contacted King Elvis at his winter palace at Area 51. He will dispatch a squadron of Klingon cruisers under the command of Admiral Hoffa to protect you and all other rational sentients.

By: Loner on 1/11/13 at 9:05

That is reassuring, Kosh....could you ask the King to air-drop some kind bud......I share.

Most intelligent (nominated by himself and voted into being by himself) - Loner.

Loner, also you would win most insulting. Who died and left you in charge of insulting those you don't agree with? And I am not clueless. I just don't adhere to your train of thought or your values. That does not make me clueless. It makes me "different" than you.

And isn't "diversity" what you strange left wing nuts are all about?

The Actor for "Lincoln" is nominated for best actor; so is the movie. Les Mis is nominated and there are more, but too numerous to mention.

Get out; go to a movie.

Thank you, Budlight for that gracious acceptance speech...I agree, diversity in online trollage is a good thing, not a bad thing...it's more entertaining that way....especially when the trolls are one-issue types.

I get out, Bud....in the real world, not in some Hollywood fantasy land....give it a shot....speaking of shots, I heard that movie theaters without armed guards are being targeted by copy-cat gunners, so I'm opting out of cowering in the dark with the other unarmed "sheep"....you can understand that, right?

By: yogiman on 1/11/13 at 9:58

You gotta understand, budlight, Loner is just one of them "Damn Yankees" we "Rebels" have to put up with.

He can only believe what he thinks. To hell with the facts.

There you have it, Yogi is really Scarlett O'Hara. Go back to Tara, retard.

By: yogiman on 1/11/13 at 11:13

Why? Are you Loner's twin, gdiafante? You both share the same thoughts like you're thinking together.

By: dargent7 on 1/11/13 at 1:37

The "Lincoln" actor is Daniel Day Lewis. (My Left Foot)
Word has itTommy Lee Jones will win for "supporting" .
I haven't seen a good Oscar winner since, "Jaws", "ET", "Titanic", "Dances with Wolves" and before that, "One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest".
Cameron, Speilberg, Costner are terrific directors.
And no one's better alive today than Jack Nicholson.

I do not think the nut cakes will target Matinees; so don't go to 6 pm; 9 pm or midnight shows and you're pretty safe.

At $8 or $9 for a Matinee, it's cheaper and safer. Plus I think it's easier to sneak in your own popcorn, candy bar and soda. LOL Don't take any beer in!
