9 Oscar winners and 5 nominees

Recommended Posts

I've just been informed by my contact on The Whattys Committee that there are nine (9) Oscar winners and 5 nominees who have made the transition to TV in order to try and get their hands on the most prestigious of awards handed out by the entertainment industry.

Nominations are about to be announced so stay tuned. Your humble reporter will be posting them as each category is announced.

Winners will be announced as per usual on January 26. Once again the Spartan Marketing Academy (SMA) forum has secured worldwide exclusive rights to the ceremony by outbidding all of the other global media outlets. The actual amount paid is confidential, however it is rumoured to be "several tens of billions of dollars".

You humble reporter contacted SMA to clarify the matter and spoke to Grand Poobah Mike Friedman. Mr Friedman would not divulge the actual amount invested, however he did shed some light on the rationale behind the decision to invest the huge amount involved. "Look,' said Mr Friedman, "Every year The Whattys Awards brings in over 320 billion unique visitors to SMA. This generates ad revenue of several trillion dollars. You'd be mad not to make an investment like that. Even arch boneheads like Dan Riffle would have made the same decision. It's a no brainer for someone as intelligent, wise and drop dead handsome such as myself." Indeed.

We now cross live as the first nominees are about to be announced.

Once again,  The Whattys are as illegitimate as its perpetrator. No awards program that isn't simply the figment of an unbalanced mind would exclude The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (even if he goes back and edits his posts to include the show...).

I propose that the Whatty's become more progressive this year and open a new category for erotic adult features, sub sections could also be considered like best Fetish, BBW etc. Ever since "Whanton Whitacre Productions" ceased making it's features, the competition is wide open. I would expect to see: "This Aint The Marvelous Mrs Maisel" amongst them.

Not only is Dan Riffle a bonehead, he can't read either.

I'll leave that one up to you. Perhaps you could name them in Claude's honour and call them the Jerkoffs.

I so love how the Whattys reward what is gowin' down up top cinematically.

Like Tarantino said, "bash me out prone with a sledgehammer till John Travolta dances o'er my dream horizon like a quivering saint of filth."

Yeah, so I took that quote to heart.

An' I ain't looked back till mebbe it was time to switch ovah.

As a yogah gal I can figure the 180 degree head rotation deal like in the Exorcist — but when I'm down undah, my inner romantic would rather cinemagoers got a loada my hair jus' playin' out all natchrl.

O for finery of locks to be as Cthulhu's momentarily powerless tentacles thwapping in unison against virgin bedsheets ...

Prolly I should start writin' for fortune cookies.

All I know is, no myoosical movie evah gonna feature Moi center stage as Vocal Nirvana Gal bcs I the singin' equivalent of Godzilla rippin' your guts out with fuckin' fish hook.

That never stopped Bob Dylan from pursuing a career as a singer.

With the princesses singing though, there really would be Blood On The Tracks

The Australian Committee are probably on their sleep cycle at present but when they awake, I'm sure they will drop out of the remaining trees and address this oversight.

No. Her character is the one flaw in Billions. It just doesn't make any sense for her to be a loyal employee of her husband's arch enemy and for both Chuck and Axe to be OK with that.

She does look good in her dominatrix gear though.
