Well This Happened Last Night “The Onion Calls Award Nominee Quvenzhane Wallis C Word? #TVTIME101 #Oscars

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 25, 2013


The Onion Tweet

 Quvenzhane Wallis WOW!!!  A huge uproar happened last night when “The Onion” (which is a satirical news organization website) was live tweeting the Oscars and had more than a nip slip, but an inappropriate lip slip.   The Onion referred to Quvenzname Wallis as the infamous C Word that is not normally reserved for children of the 9-year-old kind.  Or 10, or 11, or 12 etc.

I imagine the tweeter on the job thought he was being controversial and snarky, but who lashes out like that at a 9 year child who actually is the youngest Academy Award Best Actress nominee in history and looked just too adorable for words?

Last night Quvenznane was gracious on the red carpet in interviews talking mostly about her dog purse and upcoming projects and for the life of me I can’t find the inspiration for such an inappropriate tweet.

Today, The Onion had issued an apology to the dismay of some of its loyal readers who have no problem with crossing the line even when young children are involved.  Many have cited racism and others commented that Dakota Fanning had never had to deal with such commentary.

The tweet was eventually removed (but never forgotten) but none too soon before many have taken a snapshot of the tweet and forever burned into the memories while acknowledging or celebrating Black History Month.

What do you think?  I know what I think.  😉

2011 MTV Movie Awards Tonight – Complete List of Nominee’s “Teen Wolf” to premiere right after

Posted by ImaJustSaying on June 5, 2011


Sunday June 5 @ 9/8c Host: Jason Sudeikis Location: Los Angeles, California

Sunday June 5 @ 9/8c Host: Jason Sudeikis Location: Los Angeles, California

Hold on tight, spider monkeys. We’re gearing up for the 2011 MTV Movie Awards where anything can happen. And who’s going to be the ringmaster of the big night? We’ve tapped SNL “A-Hole” Jason Sudeikis to take the reigns as host. You’ve seen him everywhere from guest stints on “30 Rock” to the silver screen on “Hall Pass” … seriously, the guy’s popping up all over the comedy scene.

Jason will keep you laughing with his own brand of jokes in between all the awards. Maybe he’s even picked up a few tips from his “The Rocker” co-star and last year’s Movie Awards host Aziz Ansari. Or maybe he’ll even take a cue from his SNL co-star and 2009 host Andy Samberg and showcase hilarious digital shorts at this year’s awards. With all his MTV ties, he’ll definitely be a worthy Movie Awards host.

What’s New On TV Tonight? A Whole Lotta Oscars Coverage

Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 27, 2011


Tonight might be all about the Oscars/Academy Awards, but cable is still running new episodes of HBO & Showtime’s popular series, Big Love, Californication and Shameless.

Had you ever wondered why tonights award show The Academy Awards is also referred to as The Oscars?  Here is a quasi explanation:

Officially named the Academy Award of Merit, the statuette is better known by its nickname, Oscar. While the origins of the moniker aren’t clear, a popular story has it that upon seeing the trophy for the first time, Academy librarian (and eventual executive director) Margaret Herrick remarked that it resembled her Uncle Oscar. The Academy didn’t adopt the nickname officially until 1939, but it was widely known enough by 1934 that Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky used it in a piece referring to Katharine Hepburn’s first Best Actress win.

Here’s what’s on TV tonight (all times Eastern). Check your local TV listings for the full schedule.

  •  

    Best known as the organization behind the movie industry’s most prestigious honor, the Oscar, the Academy encourages excellence in filmmaking through a range of coveted awards.

    Dedicated to the advancement of the arts and sciences of motion pictures, the Academy’s corporate management and general policies are overseen by a Board of Governors, which includes representatives from each of the craft branches.

    53rd Grammy Awarding Performance!!! Eminem ROCKS IT!! **Update – Lady Gaga Yolks IT!!

    Posted by ImaJustSaying on February 14, 2011


    Eminem’s 2011 Grammy Performance – Love the Way You Lie Pt. II / I Need a Doctor

    Last nights Grammy show was pretty lame.  I didn’t realize 25 out of 30 awards were already awarded during a web show and only 5 were left for the actual 3.5 hour show.  Ugh!!  Most of the performances were so BORING since the majority of them were ballads and singing about how you lost your dog, your wife left you and now you’re soaking your sorrows in a bath tub full if home-made gin!!

    Finally its Eminem’s turn led by Rhianna and finished up with Dr Dre and it was certainly a get off your seat type of performance that I rewound the performance and called down my son to enjoy again with.

    At this point, perhaps we can officially declare Eminem’s comeback to be complete. He’s already got the year’s best-selling album (and a pair of the biggest singles), and now, well, he’s the most-nominated artist of the 53rd annual Grammy Awards.

    Following (not so) closely behind him is Bruno Mars, who landed seven nominations, followed by Jay-Z, Lady Antebellum and Lady Gaga, who earned six apiece. B.o.B and John Legend are among the names who will head into the Grammys with five noms.

    The complete nominations for the 53rd annual Grammys:
