Academy Awards 2011 bombs!
Don’t get be started on the actors who won and had not prepared an acceptance speech.
“I’m speechless, what a shock!”
You had three months to prepare for this moment! Actors need to understand that they are nothing without writers. If you are nominated for an award where you might be speaking to millions of people all over the world, hire me, or another comedy writer to give you a memorable line that will be quoted for years. Actors are idiots.
It’s official, no more academy award parties, or even sitting by myself watching the show. There are more entertaining ways to spend a Sunday night – like watching a Youtube videos of babies dancing.
