SACHA BARON COHENS HUMOR WAS NOT APPRECIATED BY SERIOUS OSCAR PRODUCERS

We were SO looking forward to seeing Sacha Baron Cohen pull some sort of stunt and liven up the Oscars, but as you know, he was cut loose at the last minute because producers fear that Avatar director James Cameron has no sense of humor. Cohen had planned a skit with Ben Stiller where Sacha would be dressed up as a blue female Na’vi and Ben would “translate” her speech. The translation would have become more and more heated and finally the Na’vi would reveal that she was pregnant with Cameron’s child. This was supposed to lead to a hilarious Jerry Springer style surprise confrontation with Cameron. Producers were afraid that Cameron, instead of laughing, might actually walk OUT, since he is renowned for having highly publicized romances with his leading ladies. It might have been the funniest moment of the show…..

    anything woulda been funnier than what Ben Stiller did…ugh…his makeup looked great, but he wasn’t funny at all…

    Oh, that would have been great! But James Cameron probably would have thrown a diva tantrum and flounced out in a snit.

    Yeah, James Cameron doesn’t look like he has much of a sense of humor for that sort of stuff. Did his wife look like she has a eating disorder?

    Sounds very lame, Stiller was bad enough, how embarrassed he must be. The opening musical number was not even a mild amusement, all the dance numbers were so boring and middle schoolish. All round humorless production, bad directing, just bad.

    I think the funniest part of the show was when Cameron’s EX-WIFE won Best Director! LOLz

    Noblecascade: I also wondered about his wife… she was a walking skeleton.

    Suzy Amis looked OLD and pale and too thin. No makeup, ugly!

    I don’t know when he was married to the woman that won, but she sure is a lot better looking and healthier than the woman he is currently married to. THAT woman looks like she is in serious need of being rushed to the emergency room for life saving treastment and force feeding! She was so painful to look at standing next to him on the red carpet with all her bones showing and her skull showing all over her face. She looked like she would collaspe in a heap of bones any minute. If her family care about her, they need to get her some treatment QUICK!!!

    dee cee: I agree, I can’t stand Ben Stiller. He was in no way funny. Plus, I have heard he has turned into a male diva who refuses to speak to anyone and takes his lunches in his trailer.

    There is NOTHING funny about Borat/Cohen. Period. I did love it when The Hurt Locker beat out ALL the Avatar categories that mattered, esp his ex wife winnign best director! Now that’s funny!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
