Remember What I Told You…

posted by on January 14 at 10:00 AM

about the mind-boggling fiasco that was Queen Latifah’s hosting of an audience-free People’s Choice Awards?

I wasn’t kidding. Here’s a short video sampler, rich in scatty goodness.

The last bit is my favorite. Not only does she think we’re hungry to hear those two weird notes one last time, she hilariously assumes she’ll be hosting the awards—or doing anything in public—next year.

(Extra mind-boggling punchline: Last night, the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a miniseries or movie went to….Queen Latifah, for her work as an HIV-positive wife and mother in HBO’s Life Support. Well shut my mouth.)

Oh give her a break. She was just trying to be silly. I'd like to see any of you host an awards show that is already lame as hell to begin with when there ARE writers and an audience to deliver to.

I vote the Golden Globes "ceremony" last night way more heinous.

Dear General: I disagree.

Um, was I the only one to notice the D next to Romney's name? Someone please explain that to me or is CBS trying some Faux news bull?

Dear David Schmader: I fully respect your opinion. I just hate Billy Bush and Nancy O'Dell so much.

Posted by The General | January 14, 2008 12:40 PM

Of course you're right: Bush and O'Dell are monsters. But after watching Latifah, I had to admire their ability to get the job done with a minimum of existential agony for the viewer.

That was painful.

I experienced some existential agony when Billy Bush said Javier Bardem's character in No Country For Old Men was one of the great movie villains, "like Darth Vader."

"existential agony" WTF?

Turn it off and go do something else you jackass.
It's not like any of this shit matters.
