Coulter on the Oscars...

If you're a fan like I am, you've probably already read Ann's latest piece from's brilliant.

Some snippets...

...I shall summarize the plots of the five movies nominated for best picture below:

-- "Brokeback Mountain" (gay)

-- "Capote" (death penalty with bonus gay lead)

-- "Crash" (racism)

-- "Good Night, and Good Luck" (McCarthyism)

-- "Munich" (Jew athletes at Munich had it coming)

Everyone says it's going to be "Crash," but I think "Crash" is too popular with filmgoers. Moreover, Hollywood feels it has done enough for the blacks. Hollywood can never do enough for the gays. Gays in the military, gays in the Texas Rangers, gays on the range. It's like a brokeback record! As Pat Buchanan said, homosexuality has gone from "the love that dare not speak its name" to "the love that won't shut up."...

...Finally, my favorite category: best foreign language film. The nominees are:

-- "Don't Tell" (Italy)

-- "Joyeux Noel" (France)

-- "Paradise Now" (Palestine)

-- "Sophie Scholl" (Germany)

-- "Tsotsi" (South Africa)

After consulting with the Yale admissions committee, the awards committee will give the Oscar to ... "Paradise Now," a heartwarming story about Palestinian suicide bombers. How good is it? Al-Jazeera gave it 4 1/2 pipe bombs. It's Air Syria's featured in-flight movie this month -- go figure! I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but let's just say there won't be a sequel.

Normally, the smart money is on the Holocaust movie, so any other year, "Sophie Scholl" would have been the clear favorite. Unfortunately for the makers of "Sophie Scholl," their Holocaust movie came out the same year as a pro-terrorist movie, so they lose...

It used to be that everyone had the right to be it seems like everyone has the right to be right (hat tip BLY), especially if you're a Hollywood Elitist.

Well, Hollywood continues to be wrong. With Jon Stewart leading the way, this year's Oscars should get the lowest ratings ever...we'll see. (or maybe not)
