Now that the Academy has realized that hip-hop exists, I think it might be time for them to acknowledge some other developments in our culture, the Internet and the screen crawl. They could use these two together to get rid of all those thank-yous that bog down the telecast. Here’s my proposal:
Each nominee from every category gives the Academy a list of all the people they want to thank. The lists would then be posted on the Internet, and during the telecast, while the winners give their speeches, their thank-yous will be on a screen crawl below them. This way everyone gets thanked and maybe the winners would have the chance to make speeches that would be funny, touching, embarrassing, etc. and we’ll have something to talk about the next day other than how boring the show was.
Now this is dedication. Check out this SIUC cheerleader who continued cheering during her school’s fight song as she was taken off the court on a stretcher. Truly one of the best In Case You Missed It moments you’ll ever see.
Are you sitting down? I’m about to break some shocking news: young, fashionable, NYU student and superstar, Ashely Olsen, is a smoker! Tabloid investigators got the scoop first hand after witnessing what appeared to be a cigarette in her left hand. While we knew that twin sister Mary Kate had some issues, we figured blonder sister Ashley was far too proper, polite, eco-friendly and socially-motivated to even consider the habit. While we’re very disappointed in Ashley, we take comfort in the fact that young girls still have a chaste and sober role model like Lindsay Lohan to look up too.

Kelly Clarkson would like you to believe that cops, football players and office associates all love to sing her popular songs when they come on the radio. But really it’s just teenage girls…and it’s probably just that one song. But we’ll let you be the judge of that. Check out here new video for Walk Away. Let us know if her music moves you to sing uncontrollably in an otherwise professional boardroom meeting. That may be grounds for a lawsuit.
The short answer: Probably not. However, it’s amazing what happens when you slide a couple of effeminate looking photographs over a RuPaul song and match it up with some out of context interview quotes.
It just got even harder out there for a pimp. Shame on you, Media Take Out. Shame.
