TVTV looks at the Academy Awards.
WATCH Dinah Manoff in pigtails as she helps tailor Lee Grant's wedding dress!
WATCH Steven Spielberg get humiliated as he is snubbed for a Best Director nomination. Then as Joe Spinell comes to his defense. Yes, there was a time when Steven Spieberg was hanging out with someone like a Joe Spinell.
WATCH Lily Tomlin fix her tiara!
WATCH Ronee Blakely toss her gown in the back seat of her car as her brother/escort drives them to the show!
Back when the oscars were truly fun, and not the humorless nonsense it has become today!
I was shocked at how Spielberg's physique has withered to nothing recently. He's really skinny, and undeveloped. No muscle tone whatsoever.
It makes his head look really big.
Could someone start a thread on Mr. Spielberg's lack of physique and muscle tone?
This is interesting.
Did Spielberg actually expect a nomination for Jaws?
Lee Grant looks really good, given that she was almost 50 at the time. Don't love the dress, though.
Lily had a great body for clothes!
If they did this today, Judy Beasley of Calumet City, Illinois, would be 300lbs.
The 1970s AAs were really shockingly shabby compared to now, looking like any crappy contemporary awards shows, and this is before Dick Clark started inventing ripoff awards shows like crazy. Hardly ANY nominees seemed to show up back then, and a typical lead-in program from 1976 was "Miss Rona Looks at The Oscars".
God, Goldie Hawn sits like a trucker. Beautiful long 1920s gown and her legs splayed apart like she's giving birth.
Lily really does have the body and look for really elegant clothes. To bad she didn't take advantage of that more. I see Michael Douglas was always a cunt.
I find it... odd... that Douglas and Brenda Vacarro dated. Just.. odd.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
