This made me laugh until I cried and I needed that today. Video by Brian Reiss:
Sasha Stone has been around the Oscar scene since 1999. Almost everything on this website is her fault.
Sasha, that satire made my day.
WE ARE FAMILY!
Too funny, eh?
How’d you think I got Donna Summer out of the Bay of Pigs?
I love a salted rim.
That was a hoot, eh?
The parodies this season have been particularly good. Lol.
“I don’t even know where this has been”. Sniff. “Oh now I do”.

How is someone like Arlene Dahl or Mrs. Sidney Lumet even a member? 1,172 actors in the Academy. I feel like I could name 1,172 worthwhile working actors from the 1950s to today without hitting those two.
I don’t disagree with Dahl on the importance of the host, though.
Scott Feinberg: “A few seasons ago, I was sitting next to a guy who I asked about his favorite films,” says Feinberg. “And he said, ‘I liked “Avatar”; I didn’t like “The Foot Locker,” ’ meaning ‘The Hurt Locker.’ I think there should be voters who know the names of the films. The academy has some strange people.”
And a more dedicated older Academy member: “It’s been going on for years. Harvey Weinstein’s trying to buy ‘Silver Linings.’ Why not? Hats off to him — he did it for ‘The Artist.’ He has every right to do that; everyone else does — just not as well as him.”
I stopped it after about a minute. It reminded me of cable access comedy.
I don’t remember a mincing blond in ARGO either. I guess you could say I hated it.

“Still, there are perks. Every year, during the prime Oscars campaigning season from October to December, active members of the academy are feted at fabulous lunches and cocktail parties at some of the swankiest spots on both coasts.”
Indeed. Most people would give their left arm to be part of such inner circle socialization. Arlene Dahl is just bitching. Let us not forget that all AMPAS members get to see any movie FREE when they show their membership card in the LA and NYC areas. Or they get all those free DVDs in the mail just so they can view the films nominated. Jesus, that alone could add up to well over $250 a year for me. One word of advice Arlene: SHUT T.F. UP!
Somewhat cute, especially to those who are a little sour about their movie not making the award progress they wanted. I have a thick skin, so, “Ha, Ha”
I’ve followed you for years Sasha (and never comment) and I am so happy that you were able to laugh and cry, the relief you must have felt! This season has been a tough one for us all, and that is just in reading your rage/frustration/disbelief.
The trick is not minding.
Please never stop doing what you do.
dumb parody, movie was a lot better.
I didn’t make it past two and a half minutes. The short was giving me waking nightmares of the time I spent crewing performance art pieces in Santa Monica and West Hollywood. The horror…the horror…
