Find Me On:
I don’t know how many of you actually watched the Screen Actors Guild awards last night–because, really, why would you?–but NOT enough of a deal was made over the fact that Claire Danes, Winona Ryder, and Susan Sarandon were competing against each other in one category. If this still doesn’t seem significant to you, you were NOT an 8- to 13-year old girl in 1994 (probably why not enough of a deal was made over the fact). Anyway, Claire Danes won; she coached up all over the stage like a big coachy coach coach.
I am blown away by how handsome baby Adam Scott is. I’d been putting off my love for him, because he was gross on Veronica Mars, but between this picture and the moment on last night’s Parks & Rec when he said, “That was…Leslie Knope” (I cried? I cried), I’m in love.
“An Academy Award nomination? Psssh. Check out my totally sweet Tamagotchi!”
14-year-olds still play with Tamagotchis, right?
You don’t have to steal it, because I bequeath it to you, in honor of our civilized disagreement on the internet.
Of course we have bigger fish to fry! I would never argue that there are not bigger fish than this one. My concern is mainly that people are having reactions like “I do not give two fucks about this post and thus you who give maybe one-eighth of a fuck are idiots.” Is that possibly fair? I don’t even give one-eighth of a fuck, when I really think about it. But I do consider this to be Beneath Videogum, whatever that means.
Also, I did not want my comment to come across as an accusation of deep-seated misogyny in Gabe. I do not believe that at all. Like I said, this is just one in an infinite series of upskirt photos of non-consenting women, and all of them are gross, and can we as human beings try to avoid them in the future, if possible?
Not to get all seriousgum (no, but actually, to get all seriousgum), this post really brings me down. If you’re not a lady on in the internet, you might not realize that there are a not actually that many places that are friendly to ladies on the internet, at least not places where a smart lady would want to be. Videogum is one of those places! Gabe writes really well, really often, about the terrible ways women are portrayed in movies and TV, etc. So it’s just a drag to see this post on Videogum, and also to see all the comments dismissing any criticism of this post, because upskirt photos are gross when they’re being taken by guys on the subway with camera phones, and by paparazzi of Gwyneth Paltrow, and I don’t even know where I’m going with this anymore, you guys! You can downvote me now.
SRLSY, why do aliens think they’re so much better than us?
I am charmed by Seth Rogen for reasons I do not understand (j/k, it’s entirely because of his weird laugh), and so I’m afraid I cannot join you.

Or left-wing media flavored! I don’t know; just go with it.
This comment is not grammatically correct. It’s just, the lip-smacking! THE LIP-SMACKING.
Why does this video make me angrier than anything Sarah Palin has ever done?
I thought the emphasis on Catholic was weird too! (I only watched the first 45 seconds of this video, guys). I didn’t know what that was about, but I just assumed abortion.
Yeah, really. You’re not really in the moral high ground when it is barely a leap to connect you to a terrorist-y rampage.
I can kind of sense her unease throughout the video, her anxious wondering as to whether there are enough American flags in the shot.
I would remain skeptical.
If Brad Pitt was my friend, and I saw him go to these lengths for a prank with this level of hilarity (read: none), I would be worried. I would feel that the “prank” reflected the fundamental emptiness of my friend Brad Pitt’s life. Which is to say, are you okay, Brad Pitt? What is the matter?
I motion that we all just avert our eyes until Ted Williams settles into comfortable anonymity in a nice apartment somewhere.
I have always wanted first-hand knowledge of the mysterious texture of Leonardo Dicaprio’s face.
If at the end of this movie, the beaver puppet gnaws Highlander Brat’s face off, I will see this movie.
I can’t believe this post has been up for an hour and NO ONE HAS POINTED OUT THAT MEL GIBSON’S BLONDE SON IS SMUGGY MCBRATTERSON FROM THE “JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE A PARENT DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO BE A LOSER” CAR COMMERCIALS. Unless someone has pointed out and I totally missed it, in which case, my apologies.
I upvoted all the “This is sad” comments and nothing-voted everything else. I’m all for comedy but I’m also all for feeling things.
It would be totally disingenuous for him to be like, “Oh, no, really? I’ve always felt that that guy deserves a job more than everyone.” I thought the clip he added of Sanchez talking about the Nazi was (despite the audience’s laughter) not a joke–like he was actually trying to say that he does not believe Sanchez is bigoted. In that respect, I thought this was a pretty classy response.
