Hollywood, then and now

Then? Go read this post at Little Green Footballs.

Now? George Clooney, accepting his Oscar, saying, “I would say that.. you know.. we are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood…” whereupon he proceeds to prove it by rendering a fractured fairy tale version of the history of the American film industry and the civil rights movement.

And, "The Best Original Song goes to…” It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp which ends, delightfully, with:
Wait I got a snow bunny, and a black girl too
You pay the right price and they'll both do you
That's the way the game goes, gotta keep it strictly pimpin
Gotta have my hustle tight, makin change off these women, yeah
“Behind the phony tinsel of Hollywood lies the real tinsel.”
Oscar Levant
