It’s all jerks, jokes & Jodie Foster

What do you get when 85 freeloading freelancers without genuine media affiliations vote for winners in an industry that’s filled with affiliations and worth more than most small countries? A) A scam; B) The Golden Globes; or C) Jodie Foster. If you guessed A, you are correct, if you guessed B, you are correct, and if you guessed C, you are as confused as the rest of us. Last night, for the 70th time, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association held their annual confusing grifter fest, the Golden Globe Awards, filled with Hollywood honchos pretending it was all real,

Every year it seems like more and more movies nobody ever heard of or seen gets the awards,mostly because they push a "progressive" theme. The anti fracking movie turned out to be a box office flop but they´ll find some award for it. Obama 2016,never made it to the list of documentaries,despite out preforming all other docs combined.The same thing happened on "waiting for superman" which exposed union corruption in the school system and was produced/directed by a career lefty.

I happened to surf by just as Jody Foster was revving up. Move over BHO, we have a new Messiah and we didn´t know it. Even the leftie boobs in the audience were dumbfounded and unconfortable.

Since I had more important and interesting things to watch on TV last night (Anna and the King of Siam - the 1946 Irene Dunne version), I have to ask:

Why was Jodie Foster even there?

And why should we care ... about her, about any of this? Hollywood award shows are, and have been for - uh, always - a huge public ´´master-debation´´ display.

It is said that politics is Hollywood for ugly people. But truly - aren´t these shallow people all the same, inside? Walnut-size brains bouncing around giant swollen skulls.

Congralations, Mzzzzzz. Foster. I used to admire you but you have now placed yourself up there with the rest of the ´´who?´´ crowd. Don´t let that closet door hit you in the backside, dear.....

I agree with #1. The left is trying to push their movies down our throats. Most I have never heard. One show that I would not take the time to review is "GIRLS" with that trashing Dunham. She calls republicans nazis.

If that speech last night was Jodie´s coming out, I think it is safe to say that she didn´t have to bother because most of us have already suspected the truth. I don´t say that in a mean way, because I have always admired the fact that she never put her personal life in our faces and she stood up for Mel Gibson when he had his troubles. In a community that believes in the great art of backstabbing friends to get ahead, that is something noteworthy. If there is any thing resembling class in Hollywood, she is it.

As I was surfing, I landed for a few minutes on the Golden Globes. Thought I might stay a while until I saw Jessica Alba walk out and read a piece of papter. I keep hearing her name and wonder why she is popular. Have never seen her in anything and after watching her last night, will never see her in anyting. She is fairly plain, has no personality, and can´t even read a piece of paper without stumbling. Moved on. Boring!

Like most posters here, I couldn´t care less what these dimbulbs say and do, but it has long been known that Jodie Foster is a lesbian with (last time anyone checked) in a long-term, stable relationship.

It has always interested me how such talented people like Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Streisand when she could still sing, Wesley Snipes, Jonathan Rhys-Myers, Joaquin Phoenix, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and some of the better actors can be so exceptional at their craft and so unfathomably vacuous in most other aspects of their usually dysfunctional lives, especially their politics.

Ditto, #12. I watched a James Bond movie marathon and what is with the new one - talk about ugly. I haven´t been out to a movie in years - not much that I would watch and foster in particular. When Fellini died, I was sad, he was funny, sad and weird.

All I need to know about the Golden Globes was that Julieanne Moore was awarded for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in ´Game Change´. And she was lauded for her "courage". Please. Call me when someone in Hollywood portrays Obama as a lazy Communist, and then we can talk courage.

PS...Sarah Palin is still being ripped by Hollywood? Did she run for something last year and I missed it? She didn´t even attend the RNC convention!

My favorite part was a) missing it all and b) reading the whole of Nikki Finke´s snark blog at Deadline.com, especially the part about Ryan Seacrest and Bradley Cooper needing to ´redo their closets.´ Close 2nd: revealing that Lena Dunham is every bit the nasty piece of work she appears to be.

I´ve thought for some time now that all the people ´outing´ themselves were making a big mistake. Very, very few of them go on to busy careers pretending to be someone else and winning awards for it. Jodie Foster is an excellent actress but after her plane movie where the bad guy were American - that´s it for me.

By the way, I think some of them are making it up - about being gay. Just a thought.

Why not put Swamp Loggers or L.A. Ink on as best shows? Oh, that´s right, all those garbage "Viewer Wrestling" shows don´t use writers since the writer strike ruined that pool of "talent". Unions have ruined Hollywierd as much as they have ruined this nation´s greatness as a world industrial leader. Now all the elites have is each other- clearly their audience has found other means of entertainment. The dive into commonality and mediocrity has been spectacular. Lady Gaga rules supreme and the world wonders.

Most are nonentities. Mention their names and people shake their heads and go "huh? never heard of him/her"...

But no one has told them.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler "wildly funny women"? Linda is very young or has a bizarre sense of humor. Perpetually meanspirited is not "wildly funny". Especially in women.

The oversized egos of these mental midgets is hilarious. Ms. Foster evidently thinks that the world is agog over her ´sexuality´ when in fact no one cares except maybe Hollywood and shut-ins who have nothing better to do than to follow celebrity gossip. Does anyone really watch these award shows? What is wrong with them?

I agree with number 10. I think she´s been hounded for years to come out publically and she hasn´t. She didn´t do it in an "in your face" way. She´s stood by Mel Gibson who´s politically incorrect as they come. She´s classy in my book.

I read the transcript of Jodie Foster´s speech and it was very poignant. That the media is focusing on that one moment is par for the course but her words for her mother still give me a lump in my throat. That she acknowledges Mel Gibson was the brave moment, IMO. Not saying anything about her "partner".

She showed a room full of morally corrupt and selfish jerks what it is to be a good daughter, a good mother and a good friend.

The media, of course, turns it into something that fits their narrative.

#29, because I like some of the better (real) cooking shows, TCM, A&E, BIO, HIST, and the occasional commercial-free movie.

That said, almost all our TV watching is Netlix streaming of movies or Fox News now and then. But these days, even watching Fox while on the treadmill is painful with that ditzy AM blonde who persists in peppering her speech with "you know".

Because of Lucianne I just found out they had the reward dispensation gathering.
It reminds me of 4 Hero of Soviet Union medals awarded to brezhnev or nobel prize awarded to obozo (lower case intentional). They gather in a dark alley (no matter how much glamor) and give the awards - it matters to the dark alley dwellers, not to us.
Do they deserve those? Of course not, but because hollywood has monopoly producing entertainment goodies in the whole world what choice do you have? Watch this garbage or watch nothing!

How difficult for two boys to grow up knowing that their mother did not VALUE their father enough to be his wife.
Is this intelligent, talented, rich and feted woman is lonely - sh has no one to blame but herself.

Came in late, there was Mel sitting up close, Jody giving him support. Bravo. Mel and Jody, two of the most versatile actors ever, who are also stars. Jody is as versatile, do anything well, as Christopher Walken and Gary Oldman. Rambling speech was incoherent, but nice to see her getting attention. Great to see Mel, the most versatile, accomplished actor of the few true stars.

I am with you #12. I´d rather poke my eyes out. But if Jodie is gay, so what? Anybody who saw her as a child KNEW she was gay before she eve knew it. It is obvious she was just made that way. It was more than her just being a tomboy as a kid.

Anyway, I believe ALL awards show are scams now. They are just a bunch of people congratulating themselves for being phony. Even the Academy Awards has turned that way. It is all a joke

Foster actually went to college and earned a degree, so she´s what passes for an intellectual in Hollywood. Of course, her degree is in Literature from Yale, so it´s not worth much. As for her being a lesbian, I´m shocked, shocked.

1889: What the White House
Easter Egg Roll Looked Like
National Journal, by Brian Resnick    Original Article

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The year that we were married, my husband and I were given a truly wonderful gift: a honeymoon safari to southern Africa. It was an amazing experience. We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous. You meet a lot of

A thief was forced to stop the car he had stolen minutes before and release the children in the back seat after the a pair of 7-year-old twins attacked the driver with a toy snake. The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle. The family was preparing to go to church and the children´s father had just run back inside the house to get a baby bottle when a man hopped

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
