George Loony and Meryl Shreeeek...

...preaching to their choir at tonight's Academy Awards totally clueless to the fact that they get to prove to the 60 million Deplorables who voted for Trump that we elected the best President in history.

The only President whose focus is on what he promised -- and delivering.

Naw...they were probably appealing to the 70+ million who voted differently.

Does anyone other than liberals even watch the awards show anymore? If they do, it's not for the awards (which also is rigged btw) but to watch high class liberal clowns make fools of themselves.

Speaking of Hollywood, I saw two pretty good movies last night...Collateral Beauty and Doctor Strange...

I watched a subtitled movie about Dries Riphagen on Netflix last night. I recommend the first hour or so, but then I fell asleep.

I just watched Them! It was the first scary monster movie I saw as a kid. What was most interesting about this 1954 movie was seeing cast members with small parts who went on to significant careers. A lot of them were, "Oh, that's uh, that's uh..." so I looked up the cast and found...

Cast
James Whitmore as Sgt. Ben Peterson
Edmund Gwenn as Dr. Harold Medford
Joan Weldon as Dr. Pat Medford
James Arness as FBI Agent Robert Graham
Onslow Stevens as Gen. O'Brien
Sean McClory as Maj. Kibbee
Chris Drake as Trooper Ed Blackburn
Sandy Descher as Ellinson girl
Mary Ann Hokanson as Mrs. Lodge
Don Shelton as Trooper Capt. Fred Edwards
Fess Parker as Alan Crotty
Olin Howlin as Jensen, the alcoholic

Cast notes
Leonard Nimoy has a small, uncredited part as a U.S. Army Staff Sergeant in the communications room.

Other actors who appear in small parts include John Beradino, Willis Bouchey, Booth Colman, Richard Deacon, Lawrence Dobkin, Ann Doran, William Schallert, Douglas Spencer, Dub Taylor and Harry Wilson.

When casting his planned Davy Crockett episode of the Disneyland television show, Walt Disney viewed the film to see James Arness, who had been recommended for the role. However, Disney was more impressed by a scene with Fess Parker as an inmate in a mental ward of the Texas hospital. Watching Parker's performance, Disney realized he had found his Davy Crockett. John Wayne saw the film and, impressed with Arness' performance, recommended him for the role of Marshal Matt Dillon in the new Gunsmoke TV series, a role that Arness went on to play from 1955 to 1975.

That was a great movie!
Scared the crap out of me back in the day.

Movies back then =>
Movies today ====>
The last movie I saw in a theater was Return of the King.
And I'm watching it again right now on TV.
Can't say I missed anything in between.

What scares me tonight is that the Russians have hacked the Oscars.

One of the best older sci-fi's. Wish I could see it again. Didn't Natalie Wood play the girl?

Perhaps now that he has done everything he said he was going to do and delivered stupendously he can quit and go out on top.

At the very least he cut four years off the normal process of seeing your approval ratings tank into the 40's. No president before Trump has pulled that off in a month.

The ending was epic.

I have never seen anything like that before.

I thought "How old is Warren Beatty? Why are they putting him in front of an audience like that?"

And then you find out why he was so confused.

Unintentionally entertaining though I have to feel bad for the LaLaLand crew.
