5 Bad Movies You Can’t Believe Won Oscars

The Oscars might be the most prestigious awards in the film industry. But over the course of history, some ridiculous movies were nominated for them. Worse, some of those stinkers were actually able to win Oscars as well.

The whole world looks to the Oscars when deciding whether a movie is worth watching or not. A classic status is instantly enshrined upon a movie after it has won one. Despite being so much importance attached to them, the Oscars have rewarded some stinkers over the years. The purpose of this article is to shed light on some of them.

Harry and the Hendersons (1987)
Won: Best Makeup

Here’s the plot of this movie, provided you have the stomach to call it that. A happy family, during their trip through a jungle, mistakenly run over a Bigfoot esque creature. Out of sympathy, the family brings it home. Once there, the creature gets back to life and starts loving a happy life, with the family. The movie is a stinker and torture to watch but somehow, it managed to bag the Oscar for Best Makeup.

Suicide Squad (2016)
Won: Best Makeup

Ever seen a movie which was as incomprehensible and constructed a superhero as bad as the Suicide Squad? Nope, me neither. The film was so bad that even Forbes, a magazine which mostly reserves it to deal with the financial side of things, ended up writing an article about how bad it was. However, as the Best Makeup Oscar which this movie got tells us, maybe the jury didn’t read that article.

Les Miserables (2012)
Won: Best Supporting Actress, Best Makeup, and Hairstyling, Best Sound Mixing

The clue lies in the title of the movie: miserable. Anna Hathaway, who won the best-supporting-actress award, was way too emotional and over-weepy with her performance. As for the sound mixing, the movie had too many songs with even Russel Crowe singing a song. What could be worse than this!

Crash (2004)
Awards Won: Best Original Screenplay, Best Picture, Best Film Editing

Despite being named as the ‘’worst move of the decade’’, this movie bagged not one but three Oscars. Apart from its star-studded cast and an inherent social message, this movie was abysmal. Though its topic was good (racism), the delivery was abysmal. Look, all of us know that racism is bad, that we shouldn’t indulge in it. The problem is that the movie told us everything which we already know.

The Wolfman (2010)

Award Won: Best Makeup

If there is one thing that hasn’t changed in the Oscar Jury over the last three decades, it is their love for the Bigfoot. Just like the abovementioned ‘Harry and the Hendersons’, it was the makeup of the Bigfoot which once again did the trick.

YouTube Shooting: Woman Shoots 3 and Kills Herself at YouTube HQ

The shooting took place at the sprawling headquarters of YouTube which is located in San Bruno, California, on Tuesday.

A shooting, which took place at the headquarters of YouTube in California, has left at least three people injured, with the female suspected of carrying out the shooting dead of a suspected suicide, police says.

Ed Barberini, the police chief in San Bruno, told reporters that the police responded vigilantly to 911 calls made from the tech campus of Silicon Valley on Tuesday.

After reaching the scene, the police found the dead body of a woman, whom they suspect to be the shooter. The woman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, he further said.

Barberini further noted that a handgun was used to carry out the attack and that after the shooter killed herself, the public does not have any further threat.

Of the four people who were transported to the nearby hospitals, police said, three of them had suffered gunshot wounds. All of them are hospitalized at the San Francisco General Hospital and two of them – a 36-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman – are in serious condition.

Police have further confirmed the name of the suspect as Nasim Aghdam, who they say posted videos on YouTube venting anger at the video streaming giant.

The data of such ‘’active shooter’’ incidents reveals that it is an extreme rarity that a woman is involved in one of them. According to an FBI report – which compiles data on 160 such incidents between 2000 and 2013, only six of the perpetrators were women.

Who was the Suspect?

Nasim Aghdam, the woman which the police identified as the perpetrator of YouTube attack, was a 39-year-old woman of Iranian descent who was a resident of California.

Before the shooting, she had a personal account on YouTube. It was in one of these videos that she berated the platform for filtering her posts and discriminated against her.

Following the shooting, YouTube deleted and terminated her account. Her Facebook and Instagram accounts have also been removed from the respective platforms.

What’s the reaction?

Chris Dale, the spokesperson of YouTube, took to social media to praise the way police handled the situation.

Twitter, meanwhile, that it was horrified by the situation.

President Trump thanked the Enforcement Officers and First Responders for their efforts.

Scarlett Johansson Issues Statement About Rub & Tug Casting as transgender man

News broke yesterday that Scarlett Johansson took a new project- playing a transgender man.

Johansson caused major controversy when she took the lead role in 2017’s ‘Ghost In The Shell’, where she was playing a character who was Japanese in the original manga series. So it’s a mystery as to why she’s chosen this latest project as a transgender man in an upcoming drama since this can be considered her second offense when it comes to appropriate. In this case, it’s not cultural, it’s gender identity.

Scarlett Johansson would be re-teaming with her ‘Ghost in the Shell’ director Rupert Sanders for the crime biopic ‘Rub & Tug’. The story of ‘Rub & Tug’ is centers around the life of Dante “Tex” Gill, a Pittsburgh-based crime boss, who was working during the 1970s and ‘80s. Dante “Tex” Gill was known for mob feuds and running a string of massage parlors that doubled as prostitution hubs. Gill was ultimately arrested and served seven years in prison for tax evasion.

Dante “Tex” Gill, born Jean Gill, was described in his 2003 obituary as “insisting that she was a man and telling everyone she wanted to be known as ‘Mr. Gill.’”. ScreenCrush dove deep into Gill’s real life and find that the crime boss lived as a “transmasculine person”.  ScreenCrush pointing to old newspaper articles there Gill described Gill as “the woman who prefers to be known as a man.”

While the idea of Scarlett Johansson playing a crime boss is exciting, the protest against the casting choice started online. Many fans took to social media to express problems with the casting since Dante “Tex” Gill was a transgender man. Johansson is a cisgender actress, which is the reason for the casting backlash.

A rep for the actress, Scarlett Johansson, allegedly said: “Tell them they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment.”

Littel reminder: Felicity Huffman was nominated for an Oscar for played a transgender woman in 2005’s Transamerica,  Jared Leto won a best-supporting actor Oscar his role as playing a trans-woman in Dallas Buyers Club, and Jeffrey Tambor won two Emmys for playing a transgender woman in the TV series Transparent. All of these casting choices caused controversy at the beginning.
