Blind Item #11

A bunch of old white people got together and strategized how best to make sure people of color were placated but wouldn't be everywhere on the television screens. So, they came up with a new award which is such crap and they should be ashamed of themselves.

The new Oscar catergory, "Most popular movie"?

MDAnderson said...

Oscars new award??

Geeljire said...

Viacom Lifetime Achievement Award

MontanaMarriott said...

Also they are going to announce the "lesser" awards during the commercials.

Gossipgal said...

The blockbuster award?

Unknown said...

How the fuck could black panther get awarded best picture? The CGI was dodgy, hello? Was I the only one who noticed the horrible animation?

Geeljire said...

Hey, since this is 2018, and so many Jewish young adults like to tell us how they're "not white..."

Is this old Jewish people or old White people, asking for Sandy.

sandybrook said...

I think it's more to give the high grossing cartoon\comic book movies that never should be in for best picture a prize. Not for black acted movies Enturd.

sandybrook said...

Fuck off you stupid piece of shit, don't ever think for me you cocksucking asshole, you barely have half a mind to think for yourself understand goatfucker?

Geeljire said...

Sandy I'm keen to hear your take on this phenomenon sweeping Jewish youth on Twitter

totaji said...

Eh, I’d imagine it’s as much about bringing in a younger viewership. Not a bad idea really.

sandybrook said...

You keen to have a goat shit all over you too

sandybrook said...

Let's try this I have friends who own pigs how's about we let one of them shit all over you too goatfucker? I bet you'd love that wouldn't you or piss on you?

Unknown said...

You two should fuck and get it over with

Cail Corishev said...

Geeljire, you know how this works. It's like FBI crime stats. Some people are white when they're the perp, and non-white when they're the victim.

I hope people of color don't accept this slap in the face. They should kneel during the anth-- er, I guess they don't have the anthem at Hollywood events, do they? Imagine that. I'm sure they can find some other way to protest.

s.s. said...

Let me get this straight--Greeljie says something about Jews, maybe antisemitic I don't know ?

And sandybrook responds by calling him "Goatfucker" which means Sandy hates Greeljie, but also thinks he's a Muslim or Arabic person or third-worlder, and Sandy also hates them and thinks they have sex with animals all day.

Got it !

hhstarr said...

Let's face it. The majority of people in America haven't seen most of the best picture movies. One or two of the nominated films, but not all. Sometimes I haven't even heard of one of the films. Gone are the days you can honor a movie for being purely entertaining. Most best pictures are ones that make a. "Statement" and are often making liberal statements. So having an award for a popular movie isn't a bad idea. I probably still won't watch the show. But if they do it just to award a certain race, sex, etc. I wouldn't be surprised. Hollywood is so out of touch with the real world.

rosie riveter said...

This is only on the good days @s.s
They typically don't get along so well

MDAnderson said...

They are basically saying that although Black Panther was a huge hit it’s still not getting nominated for best picture. So they made up an award for BP so no one will protest and boycott the Oscars

Tricia13 said...

Lol@rosie ๐Ÿ˜‚
Sandy’s been here a long time and doesn’t deserve the grief ,Geel-stick to comments on celebs because it’s /you are far more interesting when you do and wayyy less offensive dude..
๐Ÿ™๐ŸปPlease.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Yeah no. Not buying this explanation, Enty.
Also, lolololololol at the Academy. You're ridiculous.

Lurky McLurkster said...

CDaN staff?

Ghog said...

I'm pretty sure that Gee does goats. It's not racial or religious. He just likes it

DDonna Tarttty said...

Not a fan of the Geel/Sandy bickering. I just skim past those now and wonder if it's meant as distraction.

The new "Best Popular Film" award is just sad. The Oscars are showing how desperate they are, but it's too late.

Michael B said...

Oscars. They will give it to BLACK PANTHER

Eowyn said...

@Tricia13

Not only are you sticking your nose into a tiff between sandybrook and Geeljire, you presume to tell us we should take sandybrook's side simply because he's "been here a long time". What flawed reasoning.

What does how long someone has been commenting on CDAN have to do with anything? Are we supposed to pay obeisance to you because you also have "been here a long time"?

rosie riveter said...

Sweeerve..... Get back in ya own lane Eowyn

And I agree Tricia I like sandy, he makes me laugh xo

AbbyRock said...

99% of movies today seem like the old Drive In movie fare. You know the movies that could not cut making it to a theater. I base my comment on having watched them on tv.

We brought our 4 year old grandson to the theater to see Fallen Kingdom because he is a dinosaur fanatic. About 40 or so minutes into the movie, he said, "This is boring." My husband and I agreed so we left.

The last movie before that my husband and I went to see was Atonement. It was awful but we sat through it because we kept hoping it would get better. Finally, it did get better. It was when the credits began rolling.

SarahElizabeth said...

I guess i just find it strange that they created an award entirely for Black Panther...like, "Best Popular Film?" That's basically saying it's a lesser film than the best picture nomination anyway. It's just a dumbass consolation prize.

Cail Corishev said...

Yeah, there's a simpler reason than blaming racism and saying the "old white men" who run Hollywood don't want blacks on TV. Maybe Enty hasn't watched TV in 30 years.

They created a monster by the way they hyped up BP as Important. Now the monster wants to be fed with awards. There's a lot of pressure to give BP Best Picture, because didn't everyone say it was the best thing ever? 97% critics' score on Rotten Tomatoes, top of the list for the year, and it appears to have the most reviews too. Everyone had praise for it! It has to be a great film, right?

There's just one problem: as a film -- you know, a story told with moving pictures on a screen -- it's not that good. It's average comic book fare at best, and that's not saying much. Even the CGI, the one thing those movies usually get right these days, was sub-par. All the critics praised it to the moon for obvious reasons, and everyone in the industry knows that even though they can't say it. So if they give it Best Picture, it'll expose them as the jokes they are.

So they're trying to satisfy the fans who bought into their BP over-hype by giving it this other award. Then they can still give Best Picture to some message fiction no one saw, like they usually do. They'll make a big hairy deal out of the new award, and try to disguise it as a wider overhaul of the awards rather than the pandering door prize it is. We'll see if it works any better than the NFL trying to get players to stop kneeling at the anthem by funding their causes.

Tricia13 said...

Xo Thanks Rosie... so funny, I was just reading a fortune cookie ๐Ÿฅ  last night and it said I was going to come across a fierce intellectual who would use obeisance to make a minor/ineffectual point.... the randomness of life is the best!

Viking Song said...

We've entered an era where we have to give Black people awards, whether they earned it or not, or it's "racist." Why should Black Panther get an Oscar? What makes it an Oscar winning movie? Be honest.

Geeljire said...

Even Geeljire actually likes Sandybrook he just never lightens the fuck up

Because realistically speaking this wasn't a room of Hollywood Irish or Italians making these plans at the Academy

Geeljire said...

So we can discuss the elephant in blackface that's been in the room since Al Jolson first covered his face in shoe polish and screamed "WE WUZ SLAAAAAAVES!"

Or ignore and leap into accusations of beastiality. I know what the Talmud would tell me to do.

"I guess i just find it strange that they created an award entirely for Black Panther...like, "Best Popular Film?" That's basically saying it's a lesser film than the best picture nomination anyway. It's just a dumbass consolation prize."

It's like Hillary winning the "popular vote".

Himmmm said...

I’d fuck her even though she is a racist.

Satan 666 said...

Interesting Quotes > Geeljire. Just sayin’...

DDonna Tarttty said...

Can't wait until "Mission Impossible: Fallout" wins "Best Popular Film."

Guesser said...

The Iron Man/ Avengers movies would never get the Best picture award. Let Black Panther just continue as a money making franchise,more black actor get work with๐Ÿ’ฐ, become famous,get real Oscar bait movies. That's how it is supposed to work. This is like give everyone a trophy for showing up.

mike m said...

I wouldn't fuck her with s brooks dick

notthisagain said...

the new 'blockbuster/popular movie award'

wanting to give it to Black Panther

notthisagain said...

hope some famous black people read the blinds!

Sarton Bander said...

Black Panther had to add another "bad guy" as the main bad guy was way too boring.

Golum looked tacked on to save the film from a snooze fest.

Geeljire said...

Help me brainstorm award shows for Viacom's rebrand of "Centric" as "BET Her"

Sara, Making It Work said...

You kidding me?
MBJ as Killmonger was riveting as scary as shit.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Anyway, it won't even be in the telecast until 2020. Black Panther won't even be eligible, so everyone everywhere can calm the fuck down.

Geeljire said...

What Black movies will be eligible by then though?
Get Out 2?

Hortensia said...

The Shape of Water should not have won Best Picture.
Sally Hawkins is a gifted actor; however, the director overdid the bad guy to the point of being ludicrous. It really was a remake of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, only with a successful love match for the creature.

Not interesting said...

((()))

AbbyRock said...

Not to stir the pot r anything but do the BET awards have a "Most Popular" entry so that Whites or Asians don't feel excluded?

plot said...

@s.s.

"And sandybrook responds by calling him "Goatfucker" which means Sandy hates Greeljie, but also thinks he's a Muslim or Arabic person or third-worlder"

Geejlire means camel fucker in Swahili. Whoever chose the name for himself fucked up spectacularly.

Geeljire said...

Plot
First, you're wrong again.
Second, that's racist. Somali is not the same language as Swahili and you're as much of a problematic, first world, non-intersectional bigot as ever

plot said...

@Hortensia

"The Shape of Water should not have won Best Picture."

I concur. A friend loved it, begged me to see it so we could talk about it. Hawkins was fantastic. Other than that, it left me cold. Oversaturated, exaggerated, and way too busy, I just couldn't connect with it.

plot said...

"Somali is not the same language as Swahili"

Oh gosh, no kidding, surely you jest!

Geeljire said...

Maryscott O'Connor problems I guess

Itttt said...

They already have this award x10 - people's choice awards, MTV awards, etc. etc.

Unknown said...

And so it begins. What will the NEXT new category be? Best performance by a goat f**ker? Best soundtrack in a minor key?

Pop Warner said...

Can you please stop lumping in white people with Jews that run Hollywood and constantly push anti-white propaganda and lobbying?

mike m said...

Hollywood, the Ministry of Truth

hhstarr said...

All I k ow well s Birdman was truly one of the worst iflms I have seen. I want those 2 hours back. Will NEVER watch it again. How it won, I have no idea.

rosie riveter said...

"It Left Me Cold"

...you spelled FRIGID wrong

DDonna Tarttty said...

"Birdman" beat "Boyhood," too, one of the worst Best Picture picks ever.

GoogleSleuth said...

+1 Tricia, very well said!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I stopped believing in acting awards after 12YAS. ๐Ÿ’”

Amartel said...

Jeez, calm down. This is just a feeble last-ditch effort to get people to watch the Oscars, meaning the actual telecast not the clothing parade that precedes it. Won't work. The end.

Stupidpervs said...

The more you let him get to you the more he enjoys this ...besides I d9dnt think you valued his opinion that much or his racism.

hunter said...

"non-intersectional bigot"

I'm impressed with these high-falutin' insults. Also I believe sandybrook is a man.

Myself, I'm female. Don't let the bloodthirsty moniker throw you off.

Hamid said...

Inbred backward child raping suicide bombing female genital mutilating sex slave owning muslims need to stop whining and blaming all their problems on Jews and kuffars.

Thanks!

Oh god, Birdman! WTF was that? To this day that post modern heap of brightly-colored shit is beyond me....or I simply don't care...whatever...too boring for words, really.

longtimereader said...

Maryscott O'Connor, the former regular poster on Daily Kos over a decade ago? how the hell does someone connect that name with Plot? just curious...

@ MontanaMarriott

instead of awarding the best achievement in filmmaking they often give the oscar to the "Most popular movie"

GentleBreeze said...

Speilberg didn't get nods for his hits back in the day. This seems like a bone the Academy is throwing at a (not deserving, but PC popular) movie so's not to be accused of racism.

Epileptic Spudmonkey said...

Q: If you pushed tricia13, sandybrook, plot and viking song of the top of the empire state building, who would hit the ground first?
A: Who fucking cares...

Marshall Mathers said...

Can anyone enlighten me as to how this whole sandybrook vs. geeljire feud originated? Because it feels like I've been seeing these back and forths between them for ages now and while it's entertaining (I won't lie I laugh at the responses), it derails the people trying to guess the blind. And it often carries on for a ridiculously long time and distracts from other comments.

Marshall Mathers said...

Okay honestly, can we stop saying "people of color"? It sounds so pandering and stupid. I don't know a single black person who has ever been offended by being referred to as black, or referred to other black people as "people of color". It's a bullshit sjw term meant to make white people with unresolved racial tension feel better about themselves.
Also before anyone bitches, I know it's supposed to apply to a "broader spectrum" of ethnicities/minorities. Ie, basically anyone who isn't white. Same thing applies. I don't know anyone of any ethnicity who has ever been offended by being referred to as their ethnicity. It's so fucking ridiculous.
I'm white and when I have to bubble in "Caucasian" on forms, I always get slightly irritated -- and have since I was a kid. Just put "white", for God's sake. This hubbub about race is making everyone more on edge and isn't helping.
