Oh the lengths Hollywood producers will go for dollars and ratings. But you know they say they would sell their own families for a deal, a package, or box office success. An so, earlier this week, Oscar’s producers agreed to let British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen come to the Oscar’s telecast dressed as a “dictator” in order to promote his film, The Dictator. It is scheduled to have a May 2012 release, and will be distributed by Paramount, the distributor of Hugo, one of the multi nominated films.
On Friday, hours before Jewlicious 8.0 kicked off, Cohen issued a video message in the character of the dictator, Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, that promised to punish the “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and ZIONISTS.” He also wrote that he wished to triumph over the ZIONIST SNAKES OF HOLLYWOOD. I guess this means the Academy voters, the majority of whom are white, old, men.. which is a code word for JEWISH.
All I am saying is.. he went too far with his comedy, and I hope the film fails and sucks, unless of course they advertise on Jewlicious.com. In that case, all is forgiven. Cuz, I, too, would sell my principles for ad revenue and ratings
well.. i guess i can write another posting now.. that says IRAN BEATS ISRAEL… at the OSCARS… but i will just watch the telly instead
Great post Larry. But we can’t wish ill of Sasha. He was in Hashomer Hatzair and we don’t wanna come off looking like right-wing thugs. But it would be neat if he advertised here…
I think Brian Grazer was in Betar
hey.. riddle me this. Why did the Oscars DIrector, during the winning speech by Iranâ€™s Asghar Farhadi, director of A SEPARATION, pan over to show Steven Spielberg’s reaction? Is he the go-to representative “Jew”?
Poland, Quebec, and Israel plan to attack Iran’s film industry so they can;t win another Foreign Film Oscar or threaten the international distribution of other films in the lucrative US marketing
You need to take Sacha Baron Cohen with a pinch of salt. He doesn’t single out one group, he parodies everything. He doesn’t mean any harm he’s just taking the piss really.
