Oscars Again

After the SNP’s junk politicians decided to come over all truthy today, Sunday, to tell us Scotland’s liberty is a decade away, minimum – ha! ha! ha! ha! – I thought readers would need something to make them laugh and reduce their blood pressure. As for my anger, I hope no SNP politician is sharing the same footpath as me this week. What a bunch of utter toss-pots. And that’s me constraining myself. By the way, this was Ricky Gervais’ last hosting spree, not this year. The ’95th Ceremony’. Hell, how that makes me feel old.

Anyhow, when I wake up tomorrow I’ll read how my predictions- easy to make this year – are as bad as Nicola Sturgeon telling us a referendum WILL happen this year, or maybe next, or was that last year?

Best picture: Everything Everywhere All at Once (Super imaginative)
Best director: Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, as above
Best actor: Brendan Fraser, The Whale (Empathy award)
Best actress: Michelle Yeoh, Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best supporting actor: Ke Huy Quan, Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best supporting actress: Angela Bassett, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Best original screenplay: Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best adapted screenplay: All Quiet on the Western Front (by a Scot – I’m biased)
Best documentary: Navalny (Not seen it but everbody tells me is great)
Best original song: Naatu Naatu, RRR
Best animated film: Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (Lead was a bit wooden)

Silliest movie title: Everything Everywhere All at Once (Made that one up)

Spoiler alert: This list is almost the same as everybody else’s list.

    The vichy quisling colonial administration is in meltdown,
    It cannot be saved. The only person that offered hope Ash Regan is being shut down dirised for being a true patriot, the SNP are rejecting their last chance of redemption with the electorate.
    We have been betrayed by those we put our trust in to represent us but they stole our dreams, like the Red Tory party there betrayal will not be forgotten.
    They want their wages and pensions for doing nothing for us, useless deadbeats on a grravy train they tell us we are not ready for independence. We have been ready since 2015. Now is the time to let Sturgeons devolutionist cabal know how P””d off we are and consign this lot of rats to the traitors corner of history.

    That is so funny GB, the expression on the faces of the likes of Tom Hanks a total picture – they knew they were being mocked but mostly didn’t know quite how exactly.

    A bit like having a ‘conversation’ with some of the Sturgeon loyally blind brigade who comment below the line in The National (which loses my subscription this week after 5 years subsidy, so at least 3 years overdue).

    I would love to adapt and direct some of the sentiments of scorn, ridicule and disgust that Ricky Gervais aimed at his audience towards those who would have had us believe in the last 20 plus years that they were actually in favour of the restoration of Scotland’s Cause and working towards restoring Scotland’s full self-government and independent statehood whilst they were actually either filling their own coffers and pension funds or simply acting in bad faith.

    In no particular order of dishonour my nominations in the various categories would include the following:

    N.Sturgeon: Best Actor / Best Actress (She/Her)
    P.Murrell: Best Director, Best Editor
    P.Wishart: Best Supporting Actor / Best Supporting Actress
    A.Smith: Best Make-Up and Hairstyling
    S.MacDonald: Best Make-Up and Hairstyling
    J.Swinney: Honourary Award
    M.Russell: Honourary Award
    P.Harvey: Juvenile Award
    L.Slater: Juvenile Award
    M.Chapman: Juvenile Award
    The National: Best Screenplay

    There are so many other deserving to be named – too many, in fact, to be shamed – so I will restrict myself to the above crop. Which matter is it that they say always floats to the top?

    I hadn’t seen that before and boy! does Ricky Gervais go shooting up in my estimation.

    I loathe and detest these silly awards for folk who have made a fortune doing what they do as much as I hate knighthoods for athletes who have won gold medals – wasteful drivel.
