Lee Daniels’ Weekly Review

Butler

 

Now there are two reasons to skip Lee Daniels’ The Butler — Oprah, and Lee Daniels.

 

*****

 

Shepard

 

“What is wrong with people?” — Shepard Smith, pretty much speaking for all of us.

 

*****

 

Idiot

 

Not sure why this is considered news.  Isn’t this knucklehead wrong about nearly everything?

 

*****

 

Lebowitz

 

Jimmy Fallon had Fran Lebowitz (above) on his show.  Every talk show needs more Fran Lebowitzes — and fewer Hollywood starlets.

 

*****

 

From Entertainment Weekly:

“The Oscars Atone with Ellen:  That was the message when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences tapped Ellen DeGeneres, 55, to emcee the Academy Awards on March 2, 2014.  The fact that a woman was selected felt like a well-earned apology for the arguably sexist humor of this year’s Seth MacFarlane.”

Yes, because in hiring MacFarlane, the Oscars reached out to a straight-male audience, and as a result its ratings went up.  Don’t want to repeat that mistake, right, Entertainment Weekly?
