Did anyone watch the performance of Hustle and Flows "It's hard out here for a pimp"?
The Oscars should be ashamed of putting those stereotypical rappers on stage to make fools out of themselves. An audience of millions may have just been introduced to a live rap performance for the first time; unfortunately a bunch of loud mouth gold teeth wearing Negros is what they will take with them.
Now young yuppie liberals and ignorant conservatives have a perfect example of what they always thought the "Hip Hop" is. When in all actuality rap is not hip hop.
Ludicris for all his verbal supuirtiory gave a waek introduction. I also don’t understand why there wasn’t a few movie clips shown to set up the films song like they did for Broke Back and other films.
I didnt see director John Singelton in the audience and Im glad cause Im sure he was embarrassed too.
The Academy Awards is a disgusting institution.

Since this was my idea already for the Topic of The Week, but someone beat me to it *sigh*, we'll just keep it and keep discussing.
Other than the uproar over the 36Mafia, any other highlights worth discussing?

I personally love the Oscars. Yes the 36Mafia thing wasn't the best part of the show, but I agree that Jon Stewart is amazing! What with the montage about the cowboys and the "Just for the record, 36Mafia 1, Martin Scorcese 0", he is my new hero![/list]

While i thought 36Mafia's performance was...interesting, given the applicability to the movie it was from (Hustle & Flow) I thought it was a good time for the Oscars to branch out and give them a performance. Them winning was probably my favorite part of the show for sheer humor. I would have been OK with them winning if it was for nothing else than to give John Stewart material. John Stewart was, by the way, the best host in years and freaking hilarious. "I think it just got a little bit easier out there for a pimp"

Sorry, lost my connection for a while. Here's what my post was supposed to be:
Pope, the TotW-topic is reserved for whoever is assigned the forum. You're always free to suggest any topics you'd like to see up in the top of the forum.
Edit: Okay, now only the Mod Squad can post, and everyone can reply.
Topic: I didn't watch any of the Oscars, so I can't really comment on the performance itself, but I will say that I doubt that many people were introduced to rap for the first time. Rap and Hip-Hop are arguably the most popular genres of music in American culture right now, and are certainly not outside the mainstream.
Considering the songs that were up for Oscars, it seemed only appropriate that in a year where Crash, a movie about the complex nature of prejudice/racism in ordinary life, wins Best Picture would Three 6 Mafia win an Oscar for the song. Slight correction to the world: the song is credited to DJayz and Shug, who do not compose everyone in Three 6 Mafia. Everyone should just be glad that past Three 6 Mafia songs like Slob On My Knob, Chickenhead, and Dis ***** Dat Hoe weren't up for Oscars or else every old white woman in the building would have fainted.
I guess the song's win though will partly make up for South Park's Blame Canada not winning a few years ago... partly.

I personally didn't think that any of the songs up for the oscar were that good. I'm just glad Dolly Parton didn't win. I would have cried. At least
Three 6 Mafia was excited about winning, which a lot of other winers didn't seem to be.

The song nominated from "Crash"... called "In the Deep" should've won... a powerful singing performance... I liked it a lot.
i didn't know the oscars had happened until after the fact.
people actually watch the oscars?

The Oscars are on TV?

I was happy to see CRASH win Best Picture. It was such a beautiful movie which dealt with some very real issues. Also, props to Tennessee Native Reese Witherspoon for her win as June Carter. And finally, Jon Stewart rocks!
