Rock Chalk Oscar Win Aftermath



Quick cowtown follow-up after a night of Hollywood glamour and a pretty funny TKC discussion . . .

A TKC reader notes:

Kevin Willmott is part of the writing team of Blackkklansman. So a local guy won an Oscar.

Willmott is also a film professor at KU.

Willmott is very well known locally for his film C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, which played in various different cuts at local film festivals for 2 years before it went to Sundance and was picked up by IFC.

Ratings were up this year.

Altogether a pretty good show.

Spike pouted like a little bitch when Green Book won. Sad!

Fuck Spike Lee. He thinks "Doing the right thing" means giving him Affirmative Action Oscars for being black.

His movies are boring, repetitious, predictable polemics that wouldn't make it out of high school film class if he wasn't black and lucky. I took a knee every time I saw the little, loud mouth puke last night.

The only thing worse than a Spike Lee movie, would be reading Michelle Obama's graduate thesis. It's brutal and is a tribute to the world, in that we can, when necessary be kind to those whose abilities don't match their aspirations.

Glad the prof decided to wear his bullet proof vest at the Oscars so he would be safe.

Spike has joined the snowflake parade.

The real truth is the numbers of people who watch this crap barely register on the scale.

Fuck chuck. He thinks anything he says matters.

His posts are boring, repetitious, predictable polemics that wouldn't make it out of a grade school special-ed class if he wasn't white and lucky. I throw up a little in my mouth every time I see the little, loud mouth puke post.

The only thing worse than a chuck post, would be reading Donald Trump's graduate thesis. It's brutal and is a tribute to the world, in that we can, when necessary be kind to those whose abilities don't match their aspirations.

Keep up the great work chuck, clearly this fool is offended by the truth.

^^Hey great!! You weren't asked though. So nobody really cares wether you watched or not. I'm sure you spent your time humping the flag and watching kiddie porn.

I largely agree with Chuck about Spike Lee. I really hate his message film. even Do The Right Thing felt like just a slightly more mature version of Sesame Street.
But...Spike Lee is a talented filmmaker. If you don't believe me watch Inside Man. Just a standard heist movie well told with excellent actors. Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Christopher Plummer, and Denzel Washington. No racial BS. Just a very good suspense movie. I'll bet if it became a blockbuster and everybody talked about it, he wouldn't have returned to the race pimp ghetto.

It's hilarious listening to a bunch of geriatrics piss and moan about an Oscar telecast that wants absolutely nothing to do with you! None of you clueless fucktards are the target demographic anyway! You're broke asses don't go to the movies, don't have any idea who the stars are, and are the mostly the audience everyone is making fun of anyway! Rich. Real rich!
