FTFA: Ironically, Davis was once the target of one of Family Guy's typically random celebrity slams.

How is that irony?

Google Miss South Carolina Teen USA. 2007.

Is Geena Davis a former beauty queen or something?

Why do I suddenly feel like the old guy around here.

I'm still lost. The googles return nothing about Davis being in a beauty pageant.

I think the point was that Davis criticized the Oscars for demeaning women but is notably silent on beauty pageants that do nothing but objectify women.

That's a very, very dumb "point".

But you're the only one who didn't get the joke...

It still doesn't seem very joke-like to me.


It's Geena's terrible phrasing: "It's a shame that that triumph was enveloped in an awards ceremony containing disrespect for women" (FTFA).

The joke is that she sounds like Miss South Carolina Teen USA 2007 explaining maps or whatever.

She's probably still holds a grudge against McFarlane for this:


Stewie Griffin: Chris, whatever happened to Geena Davis? She used to be in movies, but she's not in movies anymore. She's attractive enough but when she smiles you see too much gum. Not a good tooth-to-gum ratio... Chris? Ah, I'll tell you in the morning.

Subby complains that Geena Davis is a hypocrite today. Said nothing about Athenian actor/ politician Aeschines in 4th Century B.C.

Why? For calling out a garbage headline?

Listen, half-wits... If Geena Davis had competed in beauty pageants, was a judge for a beauty pageant, or even if she merely had nice things to say about them at some point in her life, it would make her a hypocrite and the headline would work. But as far as I can tell, she has never done any of those things, so the headline is just whiny nonsense.

Comedy 101, people.

I agree.  Most of the people on this thread are morons.  George C. Scott refused to attend the show to accept his Best Actor award for bloody friggen Patton because he thought it was too much of a skin show.  But when some chick says a word against the latest show, they're jumping all over her.

I don't understand.  Why would an Oscar-winning actress would pay more attention to the Oscars than some teen beauty pageant? It makes no sense.

Of all the threads to bring popcorn to, did not expect this to be one.
 
2013-03-05 02:02:29 PM
I think we can all agree that the headline sucks. The real issue is why Geena Davis doesn't care about black people.

All I know is that she was the best President we ever had.

fozziewazzi:
The larger message still applies.  The time for speaking out against demeaning women is when you're young and pretty and men are throwing stuff at you.  Not when you're old, bitter and bent and no one is paying attention to you anymore.

Sooooo, women are only allowed to speak out about women being demeaned as beautiful and otherwise valueless objects if they are beautiful and otherwise valueless objects at the time?

Wow. It never ceases to amaze me - the level of stupidity that Americans in general have fallen to. As an (escaped) American, I appreciate Seth for what he is doing, and I think, at its deepest levels, I understand it. Aside from the peppered moments of true comedic genius, he generally, IMHO, is saying, "look at this ridiculous mockery. If this were happening in the real world around you, you would, and should, be offended, because it is wrong. Since I am, instead, having a character do it, or presenting it myself, ironically, you should enjoy the show, walking away not desensitized to race/sex/any-other-ism, but acutely aware of it, y'all." To play the buffoon to expose what is f'd up in our society is a noble and high-minded endeavor. To do so through spit-take fart jokes is just a joy. It seems America really has become the land of the haves-and-have-nots. I am glad to be in the 1% that has a sense of irony.

Damn, what happened to Geena Davis?  I had a thing for her since Long Kiss Goodnight, but apparently she has devolved from that brainy hottie to a crusty and bitter Gloria Steinam clone.

Geena in better days

They are saying Geena could have stated her opinion more eloquently. It was a lame "joke".

Let's rewind and think rationally.

Geena Davis, who is a sweetheart by the way, my ex helped deliver her baby, is chair of the Califonia Commission on the Status of Women and girls.  It wasn't just about the jokes about boobs, but the forced bulimia actresses committed to fit into dresses, etc.  The Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, contacted Geena and alongside another female lawyer drafted a letter to the Academy.

Is it all Geena's doing?  No.  Not by a long shot.

Is it her being hypocritical?  Is it her begging to be in a spotlight after her career has faded?  No.
 
2013-03-06 08:15:53 AM
She's never been as sexy as she was in The Fly. Granted, that's not the reason most people remember the film, but it's like that for me.

Oh, I get it now. It's a reference to Beetlejuice

Actresses were forced to make themselves vomit after eating so they would fit into dresses?

 
Who did this? Is there any footage?


You'd think this would be a bigger story.

You'd turn it off when I was halfway across: Actresses were forced to make themselves vomit after eating so they would fit into dresses?


That's not the half of it.  Actors have it much worse.  Where's their righteous champion?

Look!  Look what Hanks was forced to do:

Look!  Look at what they forced Bale to do:
