That he stuck it up the hotel employee's butt?

Blue Chips won an Oscar.

That they spent four hours lecturing us about sexual assault allegations and gave an Oscar to an accused rapist?
 
2018-03-05 08:23:42 AM  
That he needed 72 lawyers to convince the Academy to give him a lawyer?

I watched maybe 30 seconds of his stupid cartoon when it was on TV long ago and turned it off.  I get it.  A guy who became rich and famous putting a ball through a circle turned out to love his ball-circle game.  I would too.  Who gives a f*ck?

I would have thought that the joke would have been something about going to great lengths to throw Weinstein down the memory hole only to give an award to an (alleged but come on) rapist.

That his movie was unstoppable, like it was in a hotel in Colorado?

I think that article comes out Tuesday or Wednesday. Soomeone has to recognize it is easy page clicks.

Wait until they do this for Football starring Big Ben.

Jezebel had it up pretty much immediately so at least one journalist out there took note that Kobe "rapist dumpster human" Bryant had a chance to win and wrote accordingly

Huh.  That's not where I thought the joke would go at all.

Why did Kobe win?  Moses Malone was a much better actor when flopping.
 
2018-03-05 09:52:07 AM  
That he tried doing everything from writing to animation on his own and refused to give credit to everyone else on the project?

You know. I was just wondering whatever happened to Abraham Washington...

That just leaves the Emmy, Grammy, and Tony awards left to go for him. The Tony might be the hard one to get of that bunch, unless he stars in Basketball Jones: The Musical.

Nah.  They can re-do A Chorus Line.  "Gimme the ball, gimme the ball, gimme the ball, yeah!"

Guy who was charged with rape and probably did it wins an Oscar while other guys who have been charged with nothing are ignored or have become pariahs.

And before you say "he was found innocent", he more or less apologized for raping the girl and then paid her millions in hush money.

Ahh, no hypocrisy like Hollywood hypocrisy...

Nice take...

 I like you, man, but it's a little more complicated than "ball-circle game." I'd like to see you have a go at it, and then explain to us again how simple it is. Being dragged up and down the court alone is hellishly athletic. That's before even considering the years of practice perfecting the actual skill set.

His apology included the line "I understand why she thinks she was raped". The victim's personal contact information - name, address, and phone number - were released on a nationally syndicated radio show and she was inundated with rape and death threats. The evidence of the time strongly supports her claim - she immediately came out of Bryant's room crying, went directly to a friend and told the friend she war raped, went directly to the hospital and they found bruises on her neck and evidence of physical trauma to her genitals.

This one seems pretty straight-forward.

You're right - having the word "probably" in there shows that MilesTeg isn't fully informed. After all, he explicitly admitted to raping her in his prepared, written apology:

Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter.

When one party doesn't consent to sex, it's rape.

Saw the nominated shorts.  Cliched story line with about the most unoriginal generic animation style.   Liked "Lou" from Pixar more.  Unfortunately the field of five nominations was pretty mediocre, so biggest fish in a small tank, I guess.

She's a psycho who was discredited by her own family, friends and co-workers.
Innocent. Case dismissed
