Blind Item #5

There has been a lot of talk behind the scenes whether or not to change the way awards are presented at this big movie self congratulating event. Producers of the telecast are worried there will be some kind of demonstration or protest during one presentation in particular, especially because everyone will know its coming. The producers would not mind at all if that presenter just begged off or called in sick or something to make it go away.

Casey Affleck presenting Best Actress

Melvin The Reanimated said...

@Tricia13, it would likely be Casey Affleck presenting the Best Actress Award. It's tradition for the previous year's Best (Supporting) Actor/Actress winners to present the award to the current year's winners.

Count Jerkula said...

Casey Affleck. Last yrs winners present this yrs awards.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Maybe Casey will just off himself in a fire. Or somebody will do "something" that makes it impossible for him to attend. Ben or Matt can give out the award instead....oh, wait....

Unlikely Franco even gets a nom at this point. I hope. Same with the whole Spielberg crew and "The Post." Criminals all.

Khaleesi said...

A lot of people probably turned their ballots in before the Franco scandal "came to light" (finally).

Shawn McGuire said...

I’m still not convinced about Spielberg. Not no way-no how.

Matt said...

The voting for Oscar nominations was between January 5 - January 12, so the Franco controversy might've been too late to affect nominations.

Tuesdi said...

It is absolutely Casey Affleck presenting.

Somebody light my fire--if you can find it said...

@Shawn: I'm afraid we're gonna have to put Tom Hanks into that SS bucket-o-mess. There's something there. I think. Ugh.

Tell him to stay home. What’s the next order of business?

Lyla said...

Casey - I suspect he will show because if he doesn't, it makes him look guilty. Franco...if smart will have someone accept on his behalf or a pretaped video acceptance speech

Spider Rico said...

@Shawn @somebody light my fire is right - unfortunately it's all there...we all don't want it but it's true

Freckles said...

I am surprised Affleck has not backed out already. He could have saved face by asking a well known person to replace him and being conveniently out of the country at that time

fustian said...

I'm going to hazard a guess here that Harvey Weinstein's dream to host the Oscars just may not be in the cards this year.

Just a presenter. I’m thinking red headed gross dick listed Kathy.

Sal Salington said...

There's no doubt this is Casey.

Amazing actor, but that's no excuse for what he's done. Time to say bye.

PG Tips said...

It probably is Casey.

& I imagine a huge number of people who will be in that damn room are predatory perverts.

Maybe Casey should do what Eminem did when he was called homophobic back in the day - he got a respected gay icon, Elton John, to perform with him. Casey could get some #metoo icon to take the stage with him.

plot said...

Fun Fact -

Eminem received a lot of support from Elton John, who thought his songs were genius.

In thanks, Marshall sent a wedding present to Elton of two gold plated cock rings.

I love that. Bet Elton laughed his ass off, too.

filmfanb said...

Casey presenting for sure.

lab lover said...

I'd like to suggest that they all stay home. Though it would be a shame if they didn't receive their praise and accolades, because the huge checks just aren't enough.

Amy said...

The deadline was Friday. It could be interesting.

Amy said...

Well that's not understanding the Slim Shady alter ego and Eminem-Elton John thing at all.

Unknown said...

Um, what is the Academy's problem? Just say no. Sorry, Casey, we've got someone else in mind.
He'd be an idiot for showing up anyway.

GrumpyOldCatLady said...

I'd suggest some new categories for this year's awards, since all these shiny people are allegedly so keen on revealing the truth:
Best Yachter, Best Beard, Best Tool, Best Sucker, Best Pig in a Foreign Language, Best Asshole in a Supporting Role... any other ideas, anyone?

Best Dubai porto-potty

J.D. Jones said...

I'm not sure how or why Casey Affleck has been lumped into the same group as Harvey Weinstein, and "has to go". Nobody really knows anything about his case.
