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.  😉

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.
