[quote]Which, of course, is why People Magazine wrote about Streisand being snubbed! (according to them)
Let it go Meryl loon, you are grasping for straws and failing. A obscure magazine article doesn't prove your point.
[quote]Anti-loon, your parochial reading of what I meant by "pop culture narrative" resembles your inability to differentiate between "industry discourse" and "pop culture perception".
What the fuck are you babbling about? Again, 10lbs of shit in a 5lb bag. There was zero pop culture narraitive about Streisand being snubbed for an Oscar. No amount of your batshit crazy replies will change that.
[quote]It deals with 'perception' and 'story', and if a big star comes out with her first film as director, there is a 'story' attached to that, and 'perceptions' are made. Just like Redford and Beatty had their own narratives, when they came out with their films.
Yeah the "narraitive" was that their films were actually well recieved both critically and commercially, Streisand's film had ok box office and lukewarm reviews. Beatty's first film was one of the biggest hits of 1978. You are obviously too stuipd to see the differences.
[quote]Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper and Madonna were no Hollywood stars. They were pop singers. The biggest female star in Hollywood until the arrival of Julia Roberts was - Barbra Streisand.
Um no. Streisand made 3 films in the 80's. Two were bombs and one did okay, hardly Hollywood's biggest star.
[quote]That status was held regardless of contemporary box office.
No it wasn't. Try again.
[quote]Her star power allone assured there was going to be a *narrative* about her first film, 'Yentl'.
Yes the narrative was "big star directs mediocre film". That was the narrative.
[quote]Needles to say, this will go over your head. But what else is new with a deranged lunatic like you.
Cupcake you're the one that has a unhealthy obsession with someone you don't know to the point where you are threatening her "competition" and has issues with racism. People like you are the reason stricter stalking laws have been passed in the last 20 years. Frankly, you are the kind of person that people should look out for.
[quote]You know, only idiots calling other people idiots, while exhibiting their own idiocy, are true idiots.
Again Meryl loon, when was the last time you were gainfully employeed? BTW you have been on here for 4 years and you still don't know how to use quotes?
Oh the irony.
