Celebrate Kansas City Oscar Night 2017!!!
Quick occasion to take a pause this evening . . .
Given that Jimmy Kimmel lost his edge in hosting the overtly political but still big money Oscar ceremony . . . Our blog community couldn't care less about the Academy Awards.
To quote comic genius Louie C.K. in routine that's strangely appropriate: "Movies are all sh*t now."
Still, we'll use just a small bit of our cowtown creativity to make this thing local given that Prez Trump controversy might have saved the Oscars this year.
Also because TKC blog community fave Rosie Jones remains hotter than any starlet on the red carpet.
To wit . . .
CELEBRATE THIS KANSAS CITY 2017 OSCAR NIGHT AWARD LIST!!!
Best Supporting Actress: Councilwoman Jolie Justus
A surprise tour-de-force performance backing up Mayor Sly James with a great deal of melodrama.
Best Special FX: Kansas City Single-Terminal Airport Proposal
Hollywood style accounting powers this smoke and mirrors campaign trying to meet a demand that doesn't really exist.
Best Short: Downtown Toy Train Streetcar
A big budget thrill-ride over a very short time frame.
Best Screenplay: Steve Glorioso
For his creative, captivating and ultimately persuasive fictions in so many Kansas City tax campaigns.
Best Movie: Hidden Figures (Real Downtown "Renaissance" Costs)
This isn't an inspiring story groundbreaking work and/or revisionist history only now seeing spotlight . . . Instead, Kansas City Downtown deal-making and the "Hidden Figures" backing up this money grab is all about broken promises (like a pro-team inside the loop) and so much cash shifted away from KCMO neighborhoods to support crony capitalist tax breaks.
And so, the show continues tonight, tomorrow and so on . . . Feel free to add suggestions as we take a pause until the morning update.
