Oscar 78: I Heart Jon Stewart

Quote of the night:

"36 Mafia: one Oscar. Martin Scorcese: zero Oscars."

I wish Dolly would have shot them backstage.

No Mitzzee, Jon Stewart is hilarious! You're cracked, if you don't agree.

your judgemental aunt said...

the oscars suck!

Crucible said...

I think Stewart was just "ok". It seemed like he was being too careful. He's definitely funnier than that.

I heard that the "band" was so shocked that they forgot to put their silver teeth in before going on stage. It was hard to make out the oscar statue in that sea of "bling."

YJA is mad because he lost to Lisa Whelchel. Don't be bitter buttercup. There's always next year!

Dead Robot said...

Was Jack Nicholson drunk? Or high? He was behaving just like all his characters in all his movies...

Kunstemæcker said...

Has Scorcese actually ever won an oscar? Isn't he the guy who always ends up empty handed?

madamerouge said...

d.r.: didn't notice--was too busy keeping an eye out for Eric Bana in the audience shots

Kunstemæcker: Scorcese has yet to win an Academy Award. 36 Mafia has. For a song celebrating male exploitation of female sex trade workers. This is truly farcical.

To all: check out the lyrics and make up your own mind

You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin)
When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin)
For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain't knowin)
Because a whole lot of bitches talkin shit (you ain't knowin)
Will have a whole lot of bitches talkin shit (you ain't knowin)

In my eyes I done seen some crazy thangs in the streets
Gotta couple hoes workin on the changes for me
But I gotta keep my game tight like Kobe on game night
Like takin from a ho don't know no better, I know that ain't right
Done seen people killed, done seen people deal
Done seen people live in poverty with no meals
It's fucked up where I live, but that's just how it is
It might be new to you, but it's been like this for years
It's blood sweat and tears when it come down to this shit
I'm tryin to get rich 'fore I leave up out this bitch
I'm tryin to have thangs but it's hard fo' a pimp
But I'm prayin and I'm hopin to God I don't slip, yeah

Man it seems like I'm duckin dodgin bullets everyday
Niggaz hatin on me cause I got, hoes on the tray
But I gotta stay paid, gotta stay above water
Couldn't keep up with my hoes, that's when shit got harder
North Memphis where I'm from, I'm 7th Street bound
Where niggaz all the time end up lost and never found
Man these girls think we prove thangs, leave a big head
They come hopin every night, they don't end up bein dead
Wait I got a snow bunny, and a black girl too
You pay the right price and they'll both do you
That's the way the game goes, gotta keep it strictly pimpin
Gotta have my hustle tight, makin change off these women, yeah

Ha ha. Burn.

PS WTF kind of prehistoric bird did Naomi Watts have to shoot and pluck to wear that? And who invited her bony, Home & Away-watchin', nasty-shiraz-drinkin', didgeridoo-playin' ass anyway?

toobusyliving said...

what a beautiful song.

TheHamburger said...

I just liked the make-up comment about Russell Crowe; "Yeah, so the make-up artists win for Cinderella Man...I'm sure it was really hard to paint Russell Crowe up like he was in a fight...I'm going to get beat up for that comment."

That isn't exactly what he said I'm sure, but is the jist of it.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

I had to cover my eyes and I am telling my mom about those song lyrics. That's so-o wrong.

Carrie said...

36 kind of name is that anyway?

Dead Robot said...

Madame, have you ever seen Bana in his breakout Australian movie "Chopper"? Cover in tats, my-name-is-earl handlebar moustache, 100lbs heavier than the Hulk and not all muscle.

Wow. Simply wow.

George Larson said...

Big Green Hulk?

Or yellow-red wrasslin epileptic Hulk?

Anonymous said...

Maybe Scorcese needs to learn to rap.

madamerouge said...

I've heard he has a full-frontal scene inChopper.

Dead Robot said...

It's Boogie Nights fake, madame, but the scene is pretty funny regardless. Watchable if you like rough looking guys with thick Aussie accents. Sorry... no lifeguards.
