Mark Wahlberg Says He Has Inside Info About Oscars


Mark Wahlberg says he has a friend at the accounting firm that tabulates the Academy awards votes so Mark knows everyone who will win and lose. Great, just tell us now Mark and we can use the 18 hours broadcast to do other things like watch a show that does not move like an iceberg.


He says The Artist will win Best Picture. It probably will, but no one has even seen it.

Jena Dujardin will win Best Actor and Viola Davis wins Best Actress.

Octavia Spencer and Christoper Plummer are also winners in the acting categories.

Hugo wins at least three awards according to Mark.

It will be interesting to see if he is right.

And the hunt will be on for his friend...nice Mark

timebob said...

IF this is true PWC is having a major meeting right now in LA.

Or some wannabee with the firm was trying to impress him with guesses most people are saying will win anyway.

The Bitch Next Door said...

I hope people treat him like a Leper after making such a stupid comment. Not having enough brains to keep his mouth shut if he truly had "inside info" shows us just how dumb this street thug is. He's always been poor white trash!!

nolachickee said...

Yeah he's dumb. Have you ever listened to him speak? Kids that ride the short bus put sentences together better than he can.

If this is true, why the hell would he out his friend? Keep the info to yourself, ass. Oh, I just answered my own question. Because he's so stupid.

NernersHuman said...

I think in many aspects of his life his intentions are good (he seems like a good dad, and gives back a lot to the community he grew up in) but my God, he seems incredibly dense in terms of having a verbal filter.

Momster said...

ahh, so not only could he have saved UA Flight 93 singlehandedly, he can name the Oscar winners before the Oscars.

All those he named are the frontrunners anyway, aside from best actor, maybe.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Um, Mark...that's pretty much what people following the Oscars have been saying anyway, so it's not as if you're telling us something we didn't already know. Not to mention that, if you're telling the truth about having a friend at PWC, you've probably just cost him his job, and possibly any kind of future in Hollywood, and unless you're offering him a job working for you at an equivalent salary, you've just screwed up his life royally so you can feel like a know-it-all. Is that REALLY what you wanted?

Carrie L. said...

Even if he knows a guy at the firm & just lied about knowing the results, his friend will likely lose his job. They take that stuff very seriously. Low life jerk.

timebob said...

sadly, @Robin, that is exactly what he wanted.

He is a ego driven douchebag. Why care about other peoples fall out when he can brag like the thug he is.

Cheryl said...

I agree with timebob about the wannabee trying to act like he had connections.

auntliddy said...

I cannot imagine why on earth he would go public with this! He must be dumb as a box of rocks!!

NernersHuman said...

You have to wonder a little if he is saying this jokingly to yank people's chains. I mean, could he really have so little self-awareness that he doesn't realize he's potentially fucking up someone's career and life?

Eh, he's a celebrity. I think I just answered my own question.

FS said...

I hate it when douche bags like this are filthy rich while the decent members of this forum work hard and struggle to make ends meet. Someone should contact the good people at the Oxford English Dictionary and ask them to put his picture next to the word "tool".

William Hill here I come

Basil said...

I wonder if he will be taking his friends calls after he gets fired and is looking for a job.

GoGo said...

Only someone who could ne'er win an Academy Award would ruin it for those who can (and did). You suck, Mark!

timebob said...

I work for a big four (not PWC) and you have to understand accountings firms whole foundation rests on trust & confidentiality. Now something like this not only will lose one persons job. It will have a domino effect. Clients will leave and no clients will mean no work, which means layoffs.

This story really ruffles my feathers knowing the kind of fall out it can have.

NernersHuman said...

@timebob, so true! I used to work for a former Big Five that went down the crapper. I'm sure you can guess which one. Luckily, I'd already moved on when that went down.

I always liked Donnie better anyway.

The Black Cat said...

It will be interesting to see if he is right. I am betting he is just shooting his mouth off, it will only confirm what many have suspected, the lights are on but no-one's home.

The Artist will win best picture. Unfortunately.

I think George Clooney will win Best Actor. There are many members who voted for him.

Octavia and Christopher will win.

Hugo will win Sound and maybe cinematography.

BTW, are we live blogging this on here or not?

childeroland said...

So his inside knowledge is what every blogger on earth has already predicted. Whatevs.

RJ said...

I loved "The Artist" and hope that it does win, but I wouldn't consider it a crime if "The Descendants" or "Hugo" won. They were very good, too. Picking Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, and Christopher Plummer isn't exactly making a bold prediction. They have won EVERY major award leading up to the Oscars. My 96-year-old grandmother who doesn't use the internet or go to the movies (but she does read the newspaper cover to cover every day) could probably tell you that they were going to win. The only real contest is between Clooney and Dujardin. Both are worthy.

I hope Wahlberg retracts this as a "joke" and no one loses their job or clients over this.

Sarah said...

I've lost all respect for this guy after this and the 9/11 comments. What a jerk.

feraltart said...

I have seen The Artist. I enjoyed it, though there was one dress in particular and I thought, I would love to see that in colour.

iheartjacksparrow said...

According to The Daily Mail, only the two top guys in the firm know who the winners are. I'm guessing that they are the ones who appear on stage every year. So Mark's not talking about some flunky in the firm. This makes it seem more likely that Mark just wants some publicity for himself.

Del Riser said...

Mark is not the sharpest crayon in the box, it would be truly terrible if he took real info like this and spouted off publicly to gain a little attention for himself.

I hope he says it was all a joke. I'm sure PWH is not thrilled that there is even a hint of impropriety
with their tabulations.

Thoughtless, stupid act.

Mother Campfire said...

The only cool part of Hugo was the entrance to the film when they were going through the station. The rest of it was too long and Chloe Moritz is incredibly annoying to watch on screen.

BigMama said...

I love a mixed metaphore

He is just experiencing sour grapes because he knows he will never get a nomination. Now, he has cemented that by his comment. Good news is, his brother might want to try for a meaty roll in the near future, cause I bet he could get nominated for playing Mr.Peanut if it meant pissing of Marky Mark.

Sunnyhorse said...

Still just as meanspirited as he was when he put the old Vietnamese man's eye out. Nasty creep.

FrenchGirl said...

someone explains me what award is "best production" (for hugo) and how Hugo can win best cinematography where it's TREE OF LIFE 's DP who won Best Achievement in Cinematography

Davis,Dujardin,Spencer and Plummer will win because they won all the others awards (GG,SAG,BAFTA...)
THE ARTIST will win because it won all the others awards, Weinstein promotes it,the crew campaign since almost 6 months in uSA (Q&A,tv show,interviews,parody...), every one in Hollywood saw the movie and it's a feel-good tribute of silent B&W movie

best picture,best director,best actor/actress,best supporting actor/actress are locked

Jason B E said...

@big mama - He was nominated a few years ago for The Departed. Was he nominated last year for The Fighter? I can't think that far back. LoL.

Jason B E said...

Maybe he just went to Awards Daily.com and read the projected winners consensus there.

But it's true. What the hell is up with his brain and big mouth lately? He knows all the Oscar winners huh? He should totally play the lottery.

mygeorgie said...

He has the face of a dumbass, so no surprises here.

George Clooney nor anything 'Descendants' better win. Seriously, the slowest, most predictable movie I have seen in years. I don't get the hype at all & I love my Georgie ;)

Henriette said...

I cannot stand him! He was the worse part of Boogie Nights! He was cast because of how dumb he is.

I loathed The Descendents! It was like a bad Lifetime movie, and George sucked!

Mooshki said...

Yes, as iheart said, there are always just the two guys who know the results, and there is no way in hell they are telling anyone. They have way too much on the line. Either he's full of shit, or his friend lied to him, in which case he deserves the firing he's going to get.

Dear Marky Mark,

You look good with your shirt off. Next time you're being interviewed, you need to remember two things. (1). Whatever you're about to say is stupid and failure to keep your mouth shut will result in your embarrassment. (2). Instead of answering the interview question, just take your shirt off.

Cousin said...

Mark Wahlberg should stick to talking to animals:

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/mark-wahlberg-talks-to-animals/727504/

"Say Hi to your Mother for me"

Andy Samberg had Marky Mark pegged a long time ago.

Halfmad said...

Oh, man. Imagine being one of the people he names...and then NOT winning. This was a dick move.

YourNameHere said...

What he needs to do is get some botox done in between his eyebrows. It reminds me of that "bacon" icon they have on air hand dryers.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Well, he got most of 'em! ;)
