Remember how shocked we all were when we found out that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope at the Oscars, so Mommie Dearest announced that the incorrect movie won Best Picture? Well, that wasn’t the first time happened at this year’s Academy Awards. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Rebecca Ford, “Sources say that during rehearsals Seth Rogen was handed the wrong envelope (foreign film instead of editing). It led to quite the commotion.” Therefore, you would think that they would’ve been more careful during the big show, but as we know they were not. It was good for us, just sucked for them, La La Land and Moonlight.
It will be interesting to see how all of this will change next year’s shindig.
I love ’70s and ’80s sitcoms and every now and again, they would have a character pretend that they died and hold a funeral for them. That character wanted to see how people would react to their death or was avoiding someone who wanted to kill them or was presumed dead but came alive right at that moment.
Anyways, those were sitcoms so it was funny. Tonight on Billy on the Street, Billy Eichner recruited Seth Rogen for a sick joke. He would tell people on the streets of Manhattan that the actor was dead to see how they would react. After they were done talking about him, Eichner would reveal he was alive and well.
Not one went well and it came off as cruel and stupid. That is why I appreciated the ones who have no idea who he is.
What do you think of it?
Actors have voiced many different objects throughout the years, and Nick Kroll has done an item that is in a league of its own. He is voicing a douche in the movie Sausage Party. The only thing that could be worse than that is a tampon. What do you think would be worse?
I can think of something that could be worse, what if some toy company wants to sell action figures based on the characters in the movie that is out now. Oh wait, then I know what I would be giving my friends for Christmas this year, the Talking Douche.
Back to Kroll, can you imagine getting that phone call from Seth Rogen? Rogen is like, “Hey Nick, want to be douche?” Kroll would reply, “I thought, I already was one?” He isn’t, but I assume that would be his answer. Then Rogen would explain to him what the role is and what guy wouldn’t want to voice something that’s only purpose is to go into a woman’s vajayjay.
Sausage Party is an animated movie about the lives of food. Because it is animated, they get to talk! What would happen if you placed robotic cantaloupes, loafs of bread and sausages in a NYC supermarket? That is what Sony Pictures found out when they did just that and had the movie’s star, Seth Rogen, give them a voice. Let’s just say, NYers aren’t that nice when their food talks back them. So much so, forget about Lip Sync Battle and Drop the Mic, this is the segment that really needs it owns show! Could you imagine? New Yawkers and the Sausage Party. Which has a completely different meaning than when I was growing up in NYC and would go to the Manhattan to party on the weekends!
There is a trick that producers and writers do in order to get the scenes that they really want in the movie included if they know that the MPAA will ask for them to be cut out that scene in order so they can get a R rating as compared to the NC-17. They will write a bunch of a scenes that they know will never get past censors in order to guarantee that the ones that they really want will actually make the final cut. It is a negotiation tactic that has worked for them!
When Seth Rogen came up with an orgy scene for Sausage Party, they created 6 of those scenes and the MPAA approved all but one little thing. He told Howard Stern today that, “There is a pita bread and you see his ballsack in the end orgy and it had hair on it. And they asked that we remove the hair from the pita bread’s ballsack.” So they digitally waxed the pita bread because no one wants to see his chick peas covered with hummus.
Seriously, MPAA it is a animated food’s balls, who cares if it has hair or not? They need to get out more!
And talking about getting out more, I wonder what 6 things were that they thought would never make it in that did. Let’s compare notes on Monday at lunch! And make sure, whatever you are eating is served with pita bread!
