‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’
Dominates Oscars With Seven Wins, Including
Best Picture (Full Winners List)

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/13/2023 12:45:57 AM

“Everything Everywhere All at Once” was named best picture at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday, capping off an improbable awards season run by winning the movie business’s highest honor. The film, a gonzo adventure about a Chinese-American laundromat owner grappling with an IRS audit and inter-dimensional attackers, earned seven statues, including original screenplay and directing honors for its creators Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (collectively known as the Daniels). The victory is a triumph for A24, the indie studio that pushed the zany film to an impressive $100 million at the box office, a stunning achievement at a time when the market for arthouse movies has shriveled.

I don't know what woke or "equity" garbage the Oscars may have promoted since I didn't even watch 1 second of it. But looking at "Best Picture" according to this article involved a Chinese Laundromat in America, isn't that an unwoke stereotype -- a Chinese laundromat? Washy clothy.

I only watch movies from 1930-1960, except for Clint Eastwood and 007, all of which I seen several times, and no longer watch. Then, people dressed nicely in the movies, including the criminals, wore hats, so no bald heads to have to endure. And it is interesting to look at the cars for those eras.

The dominance of EEAAO just highlighted how weak the overall field really was. Haing seen all the nominees, I would agree with the pick but it wasn't a memorable movie. There were enough categories that almost all of them got some recognition. The major film industry is as polarized and fractured as the rest of the country. It is becoming an intellectual echo chamber of artsy liberals combined with the formula low risk approach of remakes like Top Gun and Avatar. All Quiet was stunning but so grotesque in its violence that I couldn't finish it. Its war, I get it, but the CGI makes it easy to exaggerate and detail the suffering beyond the limits of my stomach.

uhm... no, "Everything Everywhere All at Once" was a poor move, incredibly derivative, silly, with stereotyping gone amok. It was like it was a bad Marvel movie that did not know what it wanted to be. And I doubt any film wound up on the cutting room floor.

I looked up the plot summary of the movie that won for best movie. When I came to the part that said the Chinese American parents have a g*y daughter, I stopped reading. My friend was right. The Academy for another year would vote for a movie that shows diversity. I agree with many posters. I watch movies from 1930-60s and also documentaries, some foreign films.

Ok, flame away, but I did watch a bit of the Oscars. I haven’t watched them in years, but this year I had seen a number of the movies that were up for awards. Mainly, I wanted Austin Butler to win for Elvis. The movie was just ok, but he was amazing. I also would’ve been ok with Colin Ferrell winning for The Banshees of Innisherin. It was a very weird movie, but he was very good. There wasn’t too much political snark, but a lot of talk about diversity, and all of us living and working as one big happy, human family. I chuckled, knowing that they didn’t mean conservatives. Actually, Top Gun Maverick did receive an award for sound I think. Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t resist a comment when introducing the editing award about “selective editing” of the J6 tapes, and predictably the anti-Russian film won for documentary. The award recipients bleated that their award was for all those suffering under tyrannical governments, so congratulations, patriots, we won one! All in all, it was a lot of breasts on parade, and not in a complimentary way.

My wife turned on the Oscars when I left the room to get a snack. While it was on only for a few minutes, that was long enough to witness an endless women are victims' narrative, the black actors upset looks when they didn't win, and an off the chart prayer for jailed people under a repressive regime that had something to do with Ukraine. No mention of the jailed people from Jan. 6th who have been jailed in this country that still haven't gotten a trial date under the Biteme repressive regime. I took control of the remote again and returned to watching something that didn't make my blood pressure soar.

Haven’t watched in years. It’s not so much the wokeness and left wing slant, I just find all award shows boring. It may be just that I am old and we no longer watch many movies. The last I saw in a theater was “Apollo 13” (excellent movie). I knew “Top Gun” wouldn’t get much since the Academy is now so political. We stream a few now but almost all are over 20 years old. There is so much content available now on-line that Hollywood could close and never make another movie and not be missed.

#30 Agree, was hoping Austin Butler would win. He did a fantastic job. But in the back of my mind I knew it wouldn't happen because Hollywood hated Elvis Presley, when he was alive. I think they were jealous of this young man from Memphis who took over the music industry as well as being the #1 box office draw. So Hollywood never awarded Elvis a grammy award for his rock'n'roll music and they certainly weren't going to award the young man who portrayed him in such remarkable fashion, with an oscar.

Ron DeSantis is causing waves after answering a questionnaire on the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Fox News host Tucker Carlson sent the inquiry to all of the announced and presumed 2024 Republican presidential candidates, asking them what their views on the current war are. DeSantis bucked the establishment trend on both sides of the aisle and didn’t spew proclamations about defending democracy (which is definitively not why we are involved in Ukraine). Instead, he pointedly said it is not in US interests to become “further entangled” in the fight, which he described as a “territorial dispute.”

Just 30% of all Republicans and Republican-leaners say the country's best days are still ahead of it -- a dramatic shift from 2019, when Trump

Early in the morning hours of a polar vortex in January 2019, FOX's "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett claimed two White supremacist Trump supporters attacked him near his Chicago apartment in a racially-motivated hate crime that would soon incite outrage from activists and the media. It's the "hate crime" that dominated headlines, but facts proved none of it was true. In December 2021, the now-40-year-old actor and singer was convicted of five felony counts of disorderly conduct.

U.S. bank stocks jumped on Tuesday, recovering some ground after the failure of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank triggered heavy selling by investors who were already anxious about the impact on lenders of rising interest rates. Worries about potential contagion had also slammed bank shares in Asia and Europe as investors re-examined their risks, despite assurances from U.S. President Joe Biden and other global policymakers that the financial system is safe. An indicator of credit risk among euro zone banks hit its highest since mid-July, while ratings agency Moody's cut its outlook on the U.S. banking system to negative from stable "to reflect the rapid deterioration in the operating environment".

Both Taibbi and Schellenberger are progressive Democrats who voted for Joe Biden. Yet, because they hold the First Amendment and truth as a higher standard than political agendas and allegiances, they have been maligned and targeted as disinformation agents.

As the Democratic presidential nominee, or even the vice-presidential nominee, she would give Democrats their best chance at retaining the White House.

Students at an all-female college attended by Nora Ephron and Hillary Clinton will vote on whether it can admit trans male students who were born female in a tense referendum on Tuesday.

But now a landmark referendum, which has polarized students, will ask whether its application process should be open to individuals who were born women but now identify as transgender men.

That’s something the U.S. citizens also know, just like our fellow Mexicans that live in the U.S.,” the president said during a daily morning press briefing, CNN reported. He pointed to the large number of American tourists who routinely visit the country as proof
