Hurt Locker won the best picture award.
Jules is not impressed.
However, Jeff Bridges got the best actor for Crazy Heart.
The Dude abides!
(Disclaimer: No, I am not implying that Jeff Bridges played The Dude in Crazy Heart. It’s just that The Big Lebowski’s my favorite movie.)
Roissy plays Spot The Alpha: Red Carpet Edition (NSFW language warning), and asks,
On a side note, notice how so many of the actors (it is PC nonsense to call actresses “actors”) in their forties look like they’re in their twenties? (Keanu Reeves, et al.) This development is perfectly predictable under the Roissy worldview. As women attain more and more economic empowerment and freedom from slut stigmatization, the average man’s provider beta status — once a reliable trait for attracting women into long term commitment — becomes marginalized. Thus, men under such a system begin to emphasize other male attractiveness traits in order to bed women; traits like game, assholery [further NSFW language warning], and looks. The confluence of a new cultural paradigm, advanced dietary science, and plastic surgery has produced a generation of leading men who look preserved in a state of youthful repudiation of rugged manliness.
Is that yet another reason why Jeff Bridges won this year’s Oscar? By keeping his rugged manliness intact?
