    Hey Tom…..just curious, what happened to the Oscar coverage? There used to be an icon at the top on main page with Oscar…and that is gone. Seems like the Oscar talk is at a stand still on gold derby. I woudl think there wouydl be lots to start talking about with Telluride comming up and New York announcing their line up. I check every opther day for Oscar talk….and nothing. Did somethjing happening when the site was sold to Penske? Just curious…….by the way….I will go start some trouble!!! Take care Tom…..

    I think it’s quiet on the argumentative front because of the time of year. With the Emmys, it’s in a limbo period. We know who’s nominated. We know the episodes. People have already voiced their opinions on who they want/don’t want to win. And with the Oscars, it’s the time of year where you get trailers for the baity films. But no one has really seen any films that are contenders to get riled up about. Unless you’re Etchie and Meryl Streep has a film out.

    Not our fault that you guys haven’t made the Emmy slugfests so you can get all the interviewees you want on the site!

    Not your fault, Tom the Emmys exclude the best TV show out there, Continuum, because of stupid foreign rules, even though Vikings, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey are eligible in spite of their massive foreign investment.  New rule; any international English-language series, no matter its country of origin, if it debuts on a U.S. broadcast network, basic cable or premium cable channel, should be eligible for Emmy consideration.  Change the International Emmys to just foreign-language and UK shows that don’t air on American TV.

    Re the Slugfests: We can’t start to post that analysis of the episode submissions until voting is done. All of the stars and TV networks watch what we do and say very closely and they go INSANE when we get critical. Sometimes they then refuse to tell us what episodes they submitted to the judges the next year. Remember, the TV academy does not release that info. We pool it from all contenders and post it publicly, then everybody steals the info from us. We don’t want to hold back our opinions, especially when they’re tough, so the compromise we’ve struck with Hollywood is to delay the posting of our slugfests about episode analysis. It’s OK that we be brutally frank after ballots are in. As things stand now, there is no other way to do this. If enough nominees get angry with us, then they’ll pull their episode info, others will follow and we’ll never know what’s going on behind the curtain.

    OK Tom – here goes…Who in their right frigging mind thinks that the 7 episode final season of MAD MEN deserves to win anything? Seriously? First of all – Matthew Wiener is an award junkie. It seems that he doesn’t feel validated unless his show takes home little statuettes. Is he not satisfied with his 4 consecutive wins at the start of the shows run? Because nothing else explains splitting the final 14 episodes into two halves – and showing them a calendar year apart – unless it’s a blatant last grab at the Emmy ring. The series limped to the finish. It’s best years were far behind it. Did I really need to see a bon mot tossed at a deceased character (who made his Tony bones decades ago as a song and dance man) brought back in a hallucination so that he could go out singing and dancing? No. Did I need to see a episode which has always had a rep for taking its time and going slowly – stop in its tracks to watch a character roller skate around the empty office? No. Are we really going to use the excuse that Mad Men made it through its entire run without winning a single acting award – as an excuse to hand out some hardware NOW to Jon Hamm because it’s “his last chance” – when they never saw fit to give him the award in past years? I hope not. He didn’t do anything he hasn’t done all along – all solid work – but consider his competition in any given year!!! Because it’s not a series lifetime award – it’s supposed to be the best performance in a given category in a single season. Period. I’d vote for Bob Oedenkirk over Hamm. I’d vote for actors who weren’t nominated over Hamm. Hey – sometimes your timing is off – seven years in a row – and you just got outplayed. Tough. Tell it to Peter O’Toole – who went to his grave with 8 Oscar nominations – and not a single competitive win. Peter O’Toole who played Lawrence of Frigging Arabia!!! But he had the bad luck to be nommed in the same year as Gregory Peck in an iconic role as Atticus Finch in “To Kill A Mockingbird”. As Billy Wilder once wrote, “That’s the way it crumbles. Cookie-wise”. All the “experts” here have Mad Men winning Best Drama – if it does – that would be a travesty. Game of Thrones did more in any single episode than MM did in its entire 7 episode final lap. Hell – where’s The Good Wife? Where’s The Americans? The Walking Dead? They weren’t nominated and they were head and shoulders better than Mad Men’s last season. PLEASE Emmy voters – do not go forth into that dark night and show the world how to smile and share a Coke. Go GoT. Go Jon Snow and the dragons and walks of shame and Peter Dinklage and as densely plotted and brilliantly written a  show as there is on TV.

    Oh these forums are BORING? Is that so? Well, you asked for HELL and you’re about to have it.

    I’ve had enough of Babypook. E-fucking-nough. We’ve had a disagreement about Selma and ever since she has been doing nothing but absolutely bitch about everything that I do or say. Her friends (or minions, take your pick) while agreeing with her, have at least the decency of ignoring me and pretending I’m not even there. Our friend Teri not so much. I can show you about a HUNDRED posts in which tries to drag my pretty ass down to every single freaking user there is in this joint in every single freaking situation or occasion POSSIBLE. I’m always here for a fight when it’s needed but after months and months AND MONTHS of the same old story (calling me disgusting out of nowhere is one good example; calling Tye-Grr ‘Unibrow’ after he responded politely and enthusiastically to one of her posts in the Random Thoughts thread is another f*cking perfect example of how insufferable this woman is – actually she pretty much calls Tye ‘Unibrow’ in every chance she gets, based on the fact that he’s Mexican – go check the Tell Us About You thread, in which she ALSO started a fight with no reason). She is belligerant, promotes seggregation and flat-out BULLYING by trying to convince other posters to rally with her against whomever she hates (ask Macbeth lol) and even has history of stalking and bullying ex-users of this website (if you have any doubts go check the Best Supporting Actress contenders thread and have a scoop on how many users have quit GD because of HER).

    I’ve reached out to her TWICE: once in February and the last time was a week ago or something. Here are the messages I sent her:

    After much reflection, I realized that it would be foolish of me
    to perpetuate this feud between us, considering how much of a positive
    relationship we had before. I think things got blown out of proportion
    re: the Selma subject a few weeks ago and our relationship has been
    pretty rocky since then. You may think that I was being my usual bitchy
    self in the Whiplash thread when all I was genuinely trying to do was to
    encourage someone to look at the movie with a different perspective.
    Maybe I expressed myself in the wrong way and maybe everybody in here
    expects me to be ironic and sarcastic in every single post that I do…
    I’ll give you that. This is just an online “persona” I use for fun
    because even though I’m quite bitchy irl there’s more to me than meets
    the eye. And Malick knows that, I presume.

    I don’t expect us to
    become best friends… I don’t even expect you guys to answer me. I just
    hope we can work this out like adults to be able to have a normal
    civilized relationship in the boards without coming at each other’s
    throats. I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t care not even one bit
    about you guys. I never did this with Scott Fuckerson and god knows how
    many times I had fights with that sir. That’s all I have to say, have a
    swell day 🙂

    Side-note: I sent this message to both babypook and Malick.

    and
    This is the second time I’m reaching out to you. It’s exhausting
    to perpetuate this useless pickering forever. Aren’t we better than
    this? Shouldn’t we make an effort to get along?

    Not only has this person ignored me everytime but she also made fun of it in another thread (out of the blue in a post where doing so made no sense AT ALL) and called me a stalker. And in the Sandra Bullock thread she (once again) plays the victim card and pretends I’m the one who keeps alienating her and pick up on her. Not true. And I won’t tolerate this from the same person. Not anymore. Do something about it, Tom. This passiveness has to stop. You either ban me, her or even both.

    I can concur with this, especially the way she personally antagonizes me about my appearance of all things. I have a thick skin- one sad lady with nothing better to do than bully strangers over the Internet on a public forum (even when she’s MUCH to old to be doing such immature things) is not enough to make me stop posting, unfortunately for her, but she’s become insufferable. I have since used the ignore button and I no longer see her posts unless someone quotes them, but it shouldn’t even come to that. Other posters have been banned for less….
