Tom Cruise, Annette Bening, Glenn Close and a lot more never won, yet the last few years it seems anyone could win them. I also remember a time being a presenter/getting invited was a big deal. There was a mild uproar about Jennifer Aniston presenting because she was a former tv star with so/so movies. A lot of people didn’t think she was worthy. Brad and Angelina were going to be there too. Looking back it’s unbelievable, especially when you see what they are throwing out there now.

Almost all of them should sue their stylists, MUAs, whoever did the lighting. It's like a freak show.

Imaan Hammam is gorgeous and was well-dressed. One of the Asian lady nominees looked fine, too.

R141 Meryl hasn’t been nominated in five years incredibly. She has no reason to fly out there and just present. She’s done it very few times anyway. Pacino was just there last year. Foster is LA based and shows up every few years. Glenn was going to present with Ford, but contracted Covid. Paltrow has no acting career anymore so it makes no sense for her to be there. Scarlett and RDJ may be busy who knows. I’ve read that, despite the gift bags, they have a hard time getting people to present. It may be because, especially with the women, they don’t want to deal with the social media scrutiny of how they look, what they’re wearing and all the bs. The days of the Oscars being this huge A list event, with big movie stars galore, I think are over.

I was surprised at how star-less this awards season turned out to be. No charlize, Julia, Sandra,Viola, meryl etc. The entire award season only big name present was Cate Blanchett and I'm sure she would not be there if not nominated

No one wants to be seen with loser Cate.

If the big real stars want to hang out with trannies and artsy fartsy fringe and hipsters, they can go slumming to nightclubs for a cheap thrill.

[quote]The days of the Oscars being this huge A list event, with big movie stars galore, I think are over.

An exclusive A-list event is the antithesis of wokeness, which demands inclusivity in everything. As long as Hollywood remains woke, expect the Oscars to remain low-rent.

This is another reason why there are no more movie stars. That would require Hollywood to single out people for their talent and/or beauty and groom them to be stars, as in the past, but that goes against wokeness, which believes in everyone gets a trophy mentality and prefers to promote mediocrity so that no one feels left out.

I forgot how only straight white people are good enough to be glamorous.

Thank god for old white men to tell us how the world works.

R2 Naomi looks older than Helen Mirren. Poor thing. Yes, women can age gracefully, but she's too young to look like this.

Every time I see a woman in a see-through dress, she looks less polished. My brain immediately registers it as under-dressed, which they are. The women who are fully dressed look much sexier and interesting. As for Hunter Schafer, the underside of her tits look off. Not a sexy look at all, poor little feather.

R52 Paul Mescal better not fix that nose. It looks good on him and makes him look less bland.

VF is no longer A list. Kyle Richards even showed up and she wasn't even the blooper guest.

R167 yup. They seem to let anyone in that has any name you would recognize. Madonna has lost her mind nowadays, but I bet her party avoids this.

Well, Bwana, perhaps you should lead by example.

Next year they'll have gals from the Real Housewives franchise as presenters.

Cardi B and Meghan the Stallion were there. Gone are the days of A list stars at these parties.

By the way, why was Monica Lewinsky there? I don't get it.

Oh, r171, nobody cares about your orders except you.

You know that.

There really aren't that many A list stars left.

And too exposed. When you see someone getting coffee or taking out their trash on Just Jared every day, seeing them at an awards show or party is no big deal.

Easy Lewinsky ridicule has always been the first resort of a LOSER.

and write this as someone who eagerly voted for both Clintons and would do so again.

That it still lasts is proof of the rightness of my instant deep, sympathy for her when I saw her early 20s face the morning the so-called "scandal' broke and knew, right then and there, that for the rest of her life, she'd be subject to the feeble attempts at humor r174 tried.
