I always read about how he buys the Oscars...which ones were his?
Ironically the more Oscars he buys, the less they are worth.
He pulled only one big one out of his ass this year.
His 2 horses in the race were SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and DJANGO UNCHAINED.
So of the 8 major awards, he got 3 - Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Original Screenplay.
His biggest push was for DeNiro to win - his trade ads were all about how DeNiro hadn't won an Oscar since "Raging Bull" years and years ago. It's the same campaign he used last year to get Streep her Oscar, but it didn't work twice.
I just read today that he unleased a whisper campaign against Saving Private Ryan so that his Shakespeare in Love film would win. It worked.
Also read that when Ben made his speech about forgiving people, he was talking about Weinstein.
His wife is expecting another baby...he is one ugly man.
I can't believe she would let that creepy man near her. I find him grotesque.
Yeah, it's about love and emotion with the wife, R6, nothing at all to do with the money.
Georgina Chapman is pregnant?! Yikes. How do we know the baby is his? That is one gorgeous woman.
She's 8 months pregnant, they already have a girl about 2 yrs. old.
Can't imagine going to bed with that repulsive man.
What did Weinstein do to Affleck requiring forgiveness?

It's really not that bad and you're being too judgmental which is misaligning your chakras.
I was shocked when I heard he's been puppeteering it of sorts since at least like 1990 when Joanne Woodward was one of his girls up against Kathy Bates.
The real sea change I think came in 98 when Goop, Benigni and Shakespeare In Love won. I thought after that year they brought some rules in about campaigns, but it looks like there weren't very much!
I don't think JLaw thanked him in her speech. Even the public who don't follow movies are gonna put two and two together when they see everyone thank him.
The Master as well (I actually think Harvey strong armed Joaquin into attending after he essentially said the Oscars were bullshit).
Jennifer specifically mentioned him in her speech, R12. Has she has done for every speech she's given for SLP.
No, R14. She did not thank Harvey in her Oscar speech.
R13 Phoenix's scowling was one of the highlights. As much as DDL is difficult to argue with, they should have went with him. The trainwreck speech would be worth it alone.
