This movie about the Oscar is first-rate parody.

I like the Oscar presentation itself and I like to watch Jimmy Kimmel live afterword.

Someone who should know told me they're actually going to rush him across the street to do his after Oscar show this year as usual; I actually haven't really looked into it. I'm not home I guess I can check my local listings for that when I do get home.

I usually like to watch the Super Bowl.

I don't care for either the hours on the red carpet before the awards just like I don't care for the hours of pregame before the Super Bowl, but if people are into those then cool beans for them.

It's just like with the college bowl games. Most seasons I like to watch quite a few of them. I hear people complaining that there are too many and I'm like, "well that's an easy problem to solve. Just don't watch them."

my favorite fake oscar moment from the site was this one:

"When Martin Scorsese yelled “Sayonara, assface!” following every name in the In Memoriam segment"

I wish that really happened.

When Airport lost BP to Patton in 1971, I knew that the Oscars were rigged. Then Helen Hayes wins BSA over Sally Kellerman and Karen Black. I was seriously rooting for the plane to crash. What a bomb of a picture, to use the vernacular of the day. Have not watched the Oscars much since.

that was the one George C. Scott famously didn't go to, despite winning best actor, right?

Correct. He did the same thing in 1962; he refused the nomination for The Hustler. FYI: he was an Atheist.

I knew he was a bit of an independent thinker and iconoclast, but didn't know he was also a fellow enlightened one.

I've been a fan of his ever since GrandpaMichchamp made me watch Patton with him, back when I was 12 or so. Scott was so into that role, I remember at the time I actually thought he WAS Patton.

Atheism = enlightenment? Can you prove that?

Scott was the Daniel-Day Lewis of his generation.
