This thought came to me before but was strengthened by some reactions I saw at the Oscars. When those actors win an Oscar they behave as if something enormous happened in their life, which causes them to cry or be at a loss of words. But can this really ever be true? Even if you win an Oscar, you were already a big Hollywood actor, you already were rich, your life was stable, your future predictable, with no surprises in sight. You already had money and wealth. Same goes for professional sports. Professional sports are usually for rich people as they require a lot of money for equipment and medical procedures, so even if you won an olympic medal or something, by that time you were most likely already rich, your life stable and predictable. So it seems to me that any achievement of rich people inevitably has diminishing returns. If you are rich, you have already achieved almost everything in life, so anything else makes it hard to be actually proud of yourself.
They are just woke/pity awards, nobody thinks they are actual achievements
>seething failures seethe
It's true of all award shows. Getting best actor is called the pinnacle of professional achievement, but it's basically the industry telling you you're best days are behind you and to get lost.
they are actors. the oscars are just another acting role for them.
How successful is a successful person?
How long is a piece of string?
>bags of meat and bones pretending to be important
can't we just wipe out this batch of humans and start over?
I hate celebrities with a burning passion, anyone who gorges on fucking award ceremonies of these hacks deserve the rope
The hilarious thing is that the awards are chosen by the filmmakers and actors themselves. So they literally just make movies, and then give themselves congratulatory awards and pats on the back.
Celebrity "culture" and American culture in general now is festering wound swarmed by swathes of self-absorbed egotistical flies that suck on its rotting flesh juices
It's a good, quick way to sort out NPCs from people who think. Anyone obsessed with celebrities is an NPC. Anyone who watches awards shows is an NPC.
Their pay scale goes up and they have more choices for the movies they perform in.
The internet is soijakking all over Brendan Fraser now. Saying
>whoa dude comeback of the century!
>i'm so happy for him, he totally deserves it!
And here I am, watching him give a disgustingly emotional speech for winning, as if he is accepting the award for curing cancer.
Even his whole "awww gee shucks" persona seems fake and calculated. None of it is real. They're even acting when the camera is off. Everyone in LA is a sociopath. Kim needs to hurry up and nuke it already.
>Kim needs to hurry up and nuke it already.
L.A., DC, Manhattan, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Detroit need to be removed. Kim, please, do us all a favor.
Putin has dibs on the east coast cities.
After the threat of not having wealth gets eliminated (by becoming rich), other things in life become more important. It's really that simple.
Priorities in life go like this:
-financial peace of mind
-create a family
-winning an olympic medal/oscar
I also noticed that people only care about celebrities either when they die or when they have a slump and have a fairy tale comeback, like this completely fake and manufactured Brendan Fraser "comeback."
Nobody gave a single fuck about Robin Williams the last 15 years of his life when he was starring in shitty Disney movies with John Travolta, but once he died it's
>Oh my god I was the BIGGESTTTT fan!!!!
m8 I was being made fun of non-stop for listening to michael jackson. After he died, suddenly everyone always has been a fan. I know this feel too well.
Fucking newfag. He got injured, divorced raped and fat. He have always had people hoping for his comeback, now he did and of course a bunch of homosexuals jumped on the bandwagon.
you ought to study a bit of psychology, this is not how it works
also not politics
you have to be extremely competitive to be the best at a sport and competitive people like winning things. These people get off on being better than everyone else, every hour they train is like edging and winning the award is the biggest coom of all time
Sport, yeah. Acting? Being rewarded with a trophy for sucking some producer's cock the best?
1st what the fuck are you doing watching the Oscars, why are you wasting your precious time?
2nd you seem to ignore how power and money hungry these psychopaths are;
3rd you derive rules from a TV show. That's retarded. It is impossible to tell which part of it, if any, is real. Probably a very tiny part anyway. Ignore it.
oh god, he never recovered from the eternal vaginal roastie israelite!
this is a weird thread, you act like the rich are a different species. they are working in an industry, and their peers award them with the most prestigious industry prize. it is their whole career.
>rich people aren't allowed to have feelings
remember, they aren't rich in their own mind. you take for granted all that money you have.
Plenty of rich people are miserable. Money = time, with enough money you have freedom from having to constantly work for cashflow. Now you have to do something useful with that time or you'll quickly become bored because you're not achieving anything, there's no struggle and reward.
I'm already miserable. I have literally no time for myself because of my work. I would rather be depressed and rich than depressed and poor. At least I would have enough time for my hobbies and I would have money for all the medical help I need, healthy organic food etc.
>I would rather be depressed and rich than depressed and poor.
Or you could stop being a whiny homosexual, you know.
And start to value the time you don't have.
Hobbies can bring sense of achievement and community, which are things that bring happiness and fulfilment. Money don't buy happiness or those things, only time and financial freedom to pursue the things you like.
I basically said that...
Yes, I just think it's important to point out what money is. Op being retarded thinking it's some kind of end goal to just be rich.
Being rich is subjective, your argument is stupid.
Acting is not an achievement. In ancient Rome it was thought as the equivalent of prostitution. I've always found it funny these social jerkoff gatherings of wannabe self-important fags - the Oscars and the other crap. Like who the fuck cares you won a little statue?
irrelevant kike awards
Most actors start out from humble beginnings. They choose acting while everyone they know tells them that they are idiots for considering it. They work extremely hard at their craft, work out, modify their bodies, cultivate a public image, and suck a lot of cock to become A-listers, and even then only an exceedingly tiny percentage ever make it. To win an Oscar is the ultimate recognition that they did indeed make it, and that they are accepted by the peer group they have worked their entire lives to be a part of. Of course they are proud. It doesn’t matter if they are communist pedos, or homosexuals, or borderline retarded with no high school. Criticize what you should, but have the honesty to give credit where it is due. These people had a dream and realized it through a lot of work and sacrifice. Almost no one on this board has any idea what that is like.
>To win an Oscar is the ultimate recognition that they did indeed make it
Bullshit. Regular appearance in tv series and movies already does that.
Yeah, and successful athletes making a lot of money playing baseball or football dont feel proud when they get a World Series or Super Bowl ring. Fucking child. Keep being a jealous loser though. See where that gets you.
That's bullshit. Most actors come from middle to upper class, parents paying for their courses or parents being simply somehow connected. Especially now, it's extremely hard for someone from a working class to break in, it's much harder than before, even though back then people also had connections. Christopher Eccleston talked about it too
Read Frank Capra's "The Name Above the Title" it is a production. It almost went tits up but he brought it back. Its a bunch of ass clowns stroking each other off. No serious person gives a shit!
