No -- examining the fixated on steroids -- -- -- Where -- in the. Stuff today some of -- aerial -- -- serious one degree or another so it's deadly serious others just embarrassingly self. But it is the last showed a week and the Oscars at a Sunday night and is such a big hullabaloo. So we're gonna take your calls and comments and text messages today about a and just ask a bunch of questions across the board. Like I read 11. Blog response and in a story I was reading abound on wait that's the same night as. As Walking Dead sorry Oscars you lose. Some -- -- dear Watson you switch back and forth to see who won while you watching other stuff do you sit through the hole. What four hour long process gets mean and and I mean somebody's. Some of these both speeches thanking everybody is is just you know. Pannemon. Some -- need to be caught off with them get to be pretty inventive than they and they cut them off to go and get together sometimes you listen drew. In -- some. Anne -- in a -- and James Francona addressed type of stuff is gone I would rather listen Martin -- when he accepts his you know when he accepted an award that type stuff. But looked ask you and I -- I ask you -- ask a question right now. I don't want to be honest -- okay and whether or not you and call end. Or semi attacks. Please do. But think about this. Do you remember who won last year. I do. But I'll tell you I I do and I'll tell you why in awhile after -- some responsive and about his -- responses to even remember. Who won last year do you remember who won here before. Does this thing make an actor's career now. It used to be back in the forties fifth Demi you you you got an Academy Award your career was set but that was back during. That was back during the studio. Carol you know so somebody won an Academy Award back and it really boosted their career for years. Now everything is in the penalty down there are big studios. And there is still a quote studio system. But it's not the same anymore. And it's almost all that what have you done for me lately so frankly winning an Academy Award -- incredibly prestigious. I think welcoming but I like this are read an article too about where people keep their Academy Awards and more than one person. Male and female especially acting awards and have won them in a bathroom on on a shelf on the map room. Some are finally -- a -- I'd say get out there because the ability the of the damp hair in all it was star known corrode the bottom of a sort of put it somewhere else. Not I mean that they put it in there because they wanna people say it. Mind if I ever looked up and got one would be prominently displayed. I don't know where exactly. I'm sure -- we're treated like the Lombardi trophy. Which is why -- and check out my statue wants on on the canal street ever mound against actually I was there the other morning I was being interviewed by people from the BBC about confederacy advances. And and and we took a stroll over there and interview me about a statue that was pretty cool. I usually go check it out we just -- -- but. So we're talking Oscars here so on who won -- don't go look it up be honest with yourself who won last year. Who won best picture won best all the best acting awards best supporting who won best director who won last year do you remember. -- do you remember every year is the Oscars a big deal for you do you think it's is as prestigious and what do you think about the shows in general. The Oscar presentation in general doesn't go on way too long deal like the entertainment that's up there or do you switch back and forth you wanna know who won. But you gotta switch back and forth and wants the Walking Dead. And then we'll also take your predictions by who you think. Who you think run. So don't go online and look it up just be honest with yourself sit down and think who won last year. Who didn't win last year has some text messages Ben Affleck was robbed is not for director Fargo's my best pick Daniel Lewis fir best actor. In Lincoln for costumes. Chris Waltz for supporting actor great year overall. I agree and unfortunately. I. And a sense. Narcissistic but I frankly make more movies and I say I had kind of just don't get a chance to -- C a whole lot of these films. And and I mean I just don't I don't I don't have the time and usually when I do have attended has him moving us on the kids wanna see. So -- My teacher says you remembered for the best thing that you've done your remembered for the last thing you've done and he teaches us to be great. Yet there you don't that's a good way to put it you aren't necessarily remember from -- Lance. For the for the last thing you know army -- member for great buffalo last what have you done for me like 2678668890. H seven is -- told -- -- a 7870. Is not told for Monica let's let's grab a call here. Bruce is calling up -- don't Bruce thanks for. Red Robin I'm pretty good and I want to let you should probably stick around a little bit of problems there questionable Obama best supporting. We're brave named Fred Merrill whose rules. Street played a prime minister laity and branch. A lady and a French guy that the award we can't. Whether violent movie and bacteria that's pretty Bruce that's pretty good from -- elect Al lot of people frankly I I question people in the hallways. And a lot of them did remember I remembered most of the stuff. It took me a minute to think about a Meryl Streep because the summaries and I thought it was year before. But I knew about the actor because my friend John Tillman was then and there was asylum movie was an unusual film. And asked for a Christopher Plummer best supporting I was just fortunate to shoot a film and -- Shirley MacLaine and only shot on one day. But my daughter is a huge fan here as he was very kind gave her an autograph. So. Anyway that that's that's but I'll tell you -- that's one of the reasons I remembered like the echoes John goma was in the actor. You know and I just work with with the Christopher -- some I sat down and try to think about who was the year before and I can't I don't remember. Do you remember when the. Dances With Wolves from -- -- and Kevin Costner made that statement going you know let some pass the time people don't remember who won. And next -- a lot of people won't remember we won this award but we'll remember Hillary -- -- heart and -- -- Yeah I think it was some conference I got out of there and Amanda words -- -- and -- All right well let's all hope we got money on -- right people to six Sony seven is our number 866889087. In October like in token there he's run a -- book but he asked is Ian. People who column playbook which him. Now now. You ain't got no money to back it up when you lose not yet you can Collie and a bet on the sure things and wind often. 2678668890. Late 78787. His -- and attacks. Oscar time who -- -- -- gonna win who should've gotten nominated and didn't just what's your take on do you watch the Oscars and do you. Actually remember from year a year who won the year before our show got a couple profit would have. We're back on the bush going to be examining everybody else -- think so when exactly. Think fixated. Zeroing seventieth. I got a whole bunch a text calls a lot and up here we're gonna talk to her friend Alpert Richard a movie man colony and they're doing their Alfredo. I am doing well hi -- doing very well. Cuban over a channel twelve on got to kind of conflict over here human tape Amanda stepped -- program there. Well not much of a conflict that no Peggy Scott aboard banned for years of course Errol I used to work in the gambit. And Peggy saw me doing some extraordinary moves on the parade -- this year. And take you -- relapse what gets a -- we finished our 2013. Parading. And then she called me a bit quiet talk about that look I -- it's great out there and show or edit it wound up being a bit they are. I teach respect at the bit of conflict but it's one of those -- duplicate that -- try to go to Los Angeles. And I imagine Los Angeles is a crazy town I mean when I lived there and I lived in the valley and you know why I didn't have a pass and -- -- A pass to get into the Oscars. And I just know I'm not going anywhere near that forget about it I watched him on TV you could still feel the excitement over the Hollywood Hills. From everything going on but I wasn't gonna get anywhere near that place is this just this craziness too much and it's. I've -- to the codec they're there are on several other trips or interviews and I had. I've submitted the idea the general Jorge -- outstanding -- you'll be on the red carpet. And oral preempted we're now I know I hope that's the way it is I'm going to be heading up to. Where of course everyone in whole bush is going to be cheering on court today court on today no matter how you renounce their. Wallets. The young girl who it hush puppy indeed that would otherwise. That does she have a nickname her or -- they just caught parkway or some like that. Name is the apparent. Look I've had so many people in no -- It took me a minute look at data to figure out and it's spelled out fanatically -- originate. Wallace and slow lap and and I mean once you learn how to say somebody's name is easy enough to roll off to Tom but. Well that's just been -- by everybody I've heard talk about it they and they all have to pause to pronounce her name is Kevin Brady once you once you mastering the blood. It is they're not and that's why I think that it. Where the Oscar nominations -- over held out -- they have all got a Coke -- to name must win. They are dirt is pandered for best actress. If there is a part. Don yeah they don't know what that appear recording and we'll walk walk -- -- He got -- going quiet calm about it that it. She didn't look any -- otherwise -- And so are you gonna go I mean this -- the whole group over there kind of kind of gather around and you'll be with them. There was an article that I read the other day about that asking should she be eligible. -- earlier ward and have been sent -- since she was nominated for there have been people gone I don't. No -- I don't know and I am and I. And I'm going you know what. I think. I mean. I think there should be a child's -- -- not actor award -- Oscar male or female I mean when you get children because there's several movies where you have children who -- You know prominent. But it's. It's kind of like you know. How Q was Drew Barrymore was basically your first film when she wasn't NET. You're right I mean now of course -- has a considerably bigger roles a leading role. And and Drew Barrymore roll's most -- of the -- when you have a film like the Guyanese had a bunch of kids and none of those kids were gonna win any thing you know. For example Joseph is that -- out yeah. It's fantastic in that film had a lot of people thought he sure got that nomination for the fact. I think I think that there should be. There should be a -- an Oscar for children's actor category on May be not male and female just won the for best performance by. A child somebody under the age of thirteen of fourteen or something like that. And I also think and don't send me any texts or emails like I'm wanting and kid actors when animals go from not bought. Their arm. -- you know. There's some really good performances by animals and that is -- that is a big pat on the back. To the trainers and I mean that's who would end up with the Oscar is the trainer so. An Oscar for best performance by an animal it is and the trainer is so and so you know. I -- I consider some of the things they have given Oscars for I don't think there's anything wrong with them because they're like for instance -- -- coach. -- was a central figure in that thing and the big guy who found that dogs are rescue dog. And the training that they had to go through to get bad dog to do it when I did because Dixie there were actually five dogs playing that one role. And the guy who was the main trainer for all those dogs. He was good and he got those all five different dogs to perform. You know and -- and that ain't easy you know and I don't I don't see any reason in the world why there should not be some kind of Oscar category for that. And -- for example last year war horse welcome directed by -- Spielberg I thought. That's so what is excellent and it got an Oscar nomination -- -- for best picture so that would ball into new Yorker you're what -- -- -- I got a special Oscar probably for the horse Wrangler who trained and and and actually. Minute practice I mean they're dealing with a horse that they surround it would -- -- -- all kinds of other stuff the -- horse had to do I mean whoever was the Wrangler for that -- Really new animals and knew that animal and got that thing to. To perform at an Oscar winning level and and that -- never there isn't even a category so that got to be nominated and and yet somebody. You know. People get. Awards for cinematographer you well if you don't have anything to take a picture -- if you don't have a horse that really. So you know steps up. Days ago so I think they should do wow. And went. That's an ugly text you sent. 6660. Yeah yeah 03 blank blank. That's ugly. Column it. Oh wait no OK maybe they're just talking about the kids -- and apple not the animal all right do you just want your daughter began and that's what they sent but yet you're a -- Well I am yeah my daughters on a parole for a little bit -- like that a bush had a very good. All right I'm -- -- -- -- you remember that now make -- on a dog comment about my kid can't let it good enough all right. Tell you -- and -- whole month. -- and watching and and what do you think your chances are really of the troop. I went on television this morning and I said my belief is although they academy could go on either side going for the youngest. Nominee court on today -- being old is that -- people -- 85 for the film. Are are more. I think that. She has a very good chance I think Andre -- at a very good chance of taking the Oscar for best actress. It's bad market that is my pick for best actress this year. Well let me say I got to go to the news here but most people. Are saying. Jessica chance Maine. Where where most of. Debt papers zero dark thirty it. -- very good in that and also Jennifer Lawrence urged the board are so Martin's playbook you know very good it's just. Everybody had their opinions I'm going I'm sticking with anything. -- and anger for you and if she does when while 10 what a firestorm on news that will be but here we go so most of the people to send a Jessica chance stain. And Daniel Day-Lewis are gonna walk away when it so. You'll -- almost like we've waited for -- the first Lincoln Lincoln gonna get a good number but don't be surprised if our go. It's in the air and expense picture because the academy feels guilty about not nominating Ben Affleck. And don't -- probably. And that's you know level the last question I gotta go. If you have a movie that has been nominated for best picture. Why is the director not nominated as best director because he has the artistic central vision to put that film -- -- -- on the screen. As far as I'm concerned they may not win the award but if your motion picture gets nominated for best picture the director gets nominated to. We got that happened remembers Shakespeare in Love you know and they're -- private Ryan. Yeah I understand that but I mean if the picture gets nominated for best picture the director should get Perez Donald see how you can say. You know that this guy -- doesn't fit in the best director category. When I had his picture made made the best picture category I gotta go through I don't know Alfred have fun and -- give us to call next week are right. Thanks by Donny and siren went over time back and more are on your big 870 right after this. We're back music -- only semi sick big city and I -- seventy is hurtful -- A mobile moment. I believe there are ten nominees for best picture yes and only five nominees for best director when they change -- then never -- people out. I don't think there should be ten. For best picture all all these all these but everybody gets left out you know one Ben Affleck should not been left out if they gonna do ten pictures -- ten directors. I see your picture can be considered. One of the best pictures but you're not one of the best directors in I guess they did in spite of -- so maybe your picture would have been. The best one just in spite of Boras that. In a sending me a message on the screen -- get of the monkey in every which -- balloons but -- rang at. Those eight. Minority clinic. Yeah you know what and it's a Manson and Tex would and it wisdom that's -- jumped. With the Oscar for the animal go to the trainer of the owner most of the time. Most of the time it is the owner who does all the training. But I would say the the the Oscar goes to the trainer because the trainers the one who trained him to do that. You know I certainly has some plaque may be done accompanying plaque to go with via. You know with with the owner if it's somebody different ideas for a -- someone that put the trainer is the one who was actually on set who trained the animal -- -- time. Who took care of the animal and trained it and got it to perform on camera. So I would give if there were an Oscar for best performance by an animal. I would give the I would give it to the trainer. Are my picks or Jennifer Lawrence Christopher Waltz jango and change I think Ben Affleck deserves nothing I think. It was the artist not the actor you're right I don't know why -- I was -- -- -- -- The Academy Awards don't matter much to me I wish you best of luck to win one if the actors were more genuine like John winner Stewart canyon hope Crosby is that. In my pay more -- Well -- pointed at their acting that's that's that's the bottom line I mean is that is that now. Really and truly. Is it just the popularity contest does that become politicized or is it true reflection. Of people's of talents and their ability to do stuff. John here you mentioned John -- from last year and he's in flight and -- this year Bravo to him. The news. Is. Simple around he's not an amount the park yeah you're right in the thing of -- -- true. Is. He is is only child. Is studying film making -- USA. She went to Newman over here and they and they they moved back here specifically for her -- -- grow up in the state Louisiana around family. And and go to school there but now she's in college and she's also he's. Purchase another home out in LA and now he's really get -- he turned down a lot of work so he could be around for his daughter growing up achieves. An adult going to college now as actually I think he. He brought her to the Screen Actors Guild award. The year awards ceremony he was her escort for their three saw them on red carpet was lovely yeah Terry what -- just a class active. She really is a nice nice nice woman I was a single -- was general Durham almost -- Muslim. But yet now now that she's grown and out of the house and and starting on around he's he's taken all kinds of roles and you know you get to see you know the range that he actually has some onstage. Do. Are they did Henry the fourth part one and two with both the role -- staff they combine the -- he played -- sent. Brought that company of actors would could and none of them were in his league he blew everyone up the stage both -- good in that 260187. Is a number 866889087.

And I think it's the only one in the country and it's I'm probably only world that's actually owned by the musicians. So they all have a stake in playing really really well and they do. But anyway this this concert remember we went to see. My Ambien rehearsal on and going I got rehearsal gone shows signing -- will make it. But we went to see. That the group from Canada came down play -- -- -- McQueen the music from queen that it was great. It was a real it was a hoot and my kids are like -- queen fans I don't. Anyway it was fellas -- that was a great even with the family that all of a certain and we had great seats to elect fifth row. It was fun. 2670. More text messages about the Oscars come -- -- -- Texas a great way to get your fluent in earn your idea across. Youngest best actor winner 29 year old Adrian Brodie in the -- I got a chance to work putting Jim wrote when he was like a teen early maybe twenty years -- I did a movie just a Steven Soderbergh movie called King of the Hill. And got to work with them and you know -- -- and and and not the least bit surprised that he won best actor he was he was the consummate professional is -- pleasant guy. Great to work him. What about the tiger in the life of -- you know what the problem -- that is so a lot of that tiger was CG it was computer graphics. One thing -- my my idea would be no computer graphics if any of the performance. Is is computer graphics than nicely like -- really doing like one of the world's a Beowulf that they did and Angelina Jolie but it was all I mean it was her. And it basically threw her and did different things and she did the voice and she acted and everything but that's a cartoon. You know that falls under a whole different category of animated cartoon and I don't know if actors' performances. Maybe they should give a best voice performance Oscar from from animated film. I don't know. But -- what about the tiger -- -- too much too much CG. Too much. That most most of the time that tiger was -- a concern generated computer generated. Seems like critics don't like the film has no shot of winning an Oscar. The critics have a lot of say so but not all of because they are not I don't think critics are members of the academy not sure but if they are they certainly are in the Monday morning. I can't -- the Oscars because the show was too long I'll flip back and forth Lotta people do that. Lot of people watch the Super Bowl to see the commercials a lot of people flip back and forth. Or they'll then and now everything's being tweeted to sing it just took a tour tweet account you can find out the right -- -- Who wins and then you can flip over near their speech if you want to. -- -- And they think he's jumping around. Daniel Day-Lewis he's the president they Marlon Brando there's just some rules and no one else complain that well. And I'll and I'll tell -- you know. Wind. What's his face. Who played Patton who played patent. George C. Scott when George C. Scott won the award for Patton he got up and do -- speech is as you know what. Don't give me this award get this I don't deserve this war because -- whoever had -- would play this part. Would win this award because dispute is the part that actually did it it was so well written as such or -- -- great role that whoever would have played this -- -- -- won the Oscar. I disagree. George C. Scott brought that -- to life if anybody else would have played that role it would have been. Different and it would not have met the standard and it's the same thing here with Daniel Day-Lewis you know what. I think one of the reasons that movie was made was because Daniel Day-Lewis was available to play Lincoln. Because heat is one of those the only way you don't pull that roll off really and truly is doing what he did. He is acting technique as soon literally. Just immersed himself in the character 2470. Literate and and you really and truly have to do that to be an actor. I mean you wanna have a acting discussion one day about the methanol resident. But this guy. No really. Really delves. Into and becomes his characters and I. I'm fine and there's no doubt in my mind that one of the reasons. Spielberg made the movie is because he had a Lincoln to make it. Anyway let's step away for a second comeback we're more recalls -- Thomas find out what's going on Iran home life we know that -- -- -- barely got to do that we have run I was going around no tobacco.
