Ten Ways to improve the Academy Awards by Kate Johns

I was going to write a blog post totally dissing the Academy Awards. But haven't a million bloggers,and reporters already done just that? It's sad when the mozst remembered moment fo the Academy awards is when the best supporting actress winner got the most play for saying the F word on national TV to supposedly a billion people.
The Academy Awards are perhaps the most overrated, most boring show on TV. Even my 83 year old mom doesn't watch the Oscars, because they are too boring! What does that tell you?
The Academy Awards need to be revamped. Here are my 50 year old, astute suggestions:
1. Cut the show down to a shorter non-snoozable length. Do we really need to honor everyone in that amount of time?
2. Cut out the ultra-dull, super snooze-fest of ultra-orchestrated movie songs. They are boring! We hear them while watching something. Get the danged hint!!
3. Allow real hosts to host the Academy Awards, not actors. Bring back a funny, talented comedian. At least for the 83 AA's, Anne Hathaway tried to put some grace, style and humor onto the scene, as her co-host looked dazed and confused throughout the entire ordeal. James Franco---hello---he looked stoned! He was wobbly, his eyes were slits. Take the bong away from him!
4.Please stop acting like the Academy Awards are sooooo danged old school! Boring! Get into the 80's Oscar producers, directors, writers. In other words, get with it, cut out the garbage, the ultra boring songs, and skits and hand out the awards!!
5.Give out a major award earlier!! How about giving out a best actress award before midnight? It may only be 8;30 on the West Coast, but some of us have to work the next day.
6.Stop panning the audience. It's become more interesting to watch the shows before and after the dull Oscars , seeing them walk the red carpet.
7. It tells you something when people would rather hop on the Internet after the Oscars, to get the highlights. Yo Oscar creators, maybe you should put the show on the Internet.
8. How's this suggestion rock you? Stop boring us with the telecast of the Oscars, and give away the awards some other way. Why not just do a fashion show, or show us snippets of the best movies?
9.Please do not, ever again, bring out some old actor dude, who looks half dead. Nooooo, it's like a horror movie come to life!
10, Cut the acceptance speeches down, or out completely. Make it mandatory that only the biggest award winners are allowed to stutter on their thank yous. Copyright 2011, written by Kate Johns, a talented author who has been freelance writing since 2004.

Charlie Sheen is a MESS by Kate Johns

Charlie Sheen is a mess. Charlie Sheen has been fired from his TV comedy, "Two and a Half Men." But that's not the big news. The big news is that Sheen has been badmouthing the producers of Two and a Half Men, and anyone else that comes near him. He sounds like a slightly younger mess comparing his tirades to those of Mel Gibson.
Sheen has been saying nasty, irate things about the show's producers ever since he ran out of the hospital for mysterious stomach pains. My guess, is that the Two and a Half Men creators had enough of Mr. Sheen and his drug problems, rants in the media, and prior arrests.

Charlie Sheen is the typical bad boy who can act his way out of a paper bag. His family tree is filled with actors, with his famous actor Dad, Martin Sheen, famous acting brother Emilio Estevez, and his ex-wife, Denise Richards.
When asked if his current problems will affect his career,Sheen answered the TV cameras with, "I have tiger blood, and Adonis DNA." Sheen also told reporters that he has offers for movie roles such as "Major League 3."
In my book, as well as I'm guessing your book, his recent movie offers are small potatoes compared to starring in a recognizable hit TV show, such as Two and a Half Men.

Sheen is a mess. For a major star to be making stupid comments , as Sheen is saying to media people, is both irresponsible and idiotic! He sounds like Mel Gibson on a good day. Sheen also says he is free of alcohol and drugs. I'm not buying it!
Sheen is messed up. He is in total denial of his drug problems and his major personality disorder. He needs to hit rock bottom before he can climb out again.

Hopefully, Charlie Sheen will get help for his major league drug and personality problems soon before he ends up another celebrity early death story in yet another media frenzy.

Why we should feel sorry for Child Stars by Kate Johns

Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, and Tiger Woods may have tons of money, but they do not have it all. Here are the reasons we should feel sorry for child stars:

Miley's Dad, Billy Ray, brought this fact front and center by saying he wishes he never let Miley become a young millionaire celebrity type. He feels guilty, because as he says, her stardom has ruined the family. You see Billy Ray and his wife are getting a divorce, and his family is breaking apart.
Well, now that makes me feel bad. Sure, you may be cynical enough to say, "You are a sucker! Billy Ray is just trying to get us real people, to feel bad for him, so that we stop giving Miley a hard time" I just knew you were thinking that!

These child stars realized their potential early on, when the rest of us regular folks, were just watching them on TV.They were each loved, and treated like royalty. We all would love to be rich, but that's not the way it goes. So we adore celebs and treat them like Gods until they make one mistake.
You see, the real reason I feel sorry for these young celebs is because they all gained exactly what they wanted very early in their lives. When they messed up once, they were given hatred from us. We have brought them down, because we feel jealous of them.
That's why I feel sorry for these young celebrity types; they got exactly what they wanted; millions of dollars.Child stars such as Michael Jackson, Drew Barrymore, Corey Haim, all gained major fame, and riches very young, then they all came into major problems.

These child stars never had a real childhood. They did not get to play at the playground, experience recess, or ride a real school bus. All the things we take for granted, they never even saw. For all we know these child stars, felt jealous of us for having friends, having regular birthday parties, for having brothers and sisters, and for having the same boring house to live in seeing our moms, and dads every boring day.
For all we know child stars might want to ditch it all; the fame, the fortune, to just have one regular day in a real home, living a real life. Maybe child stars can't handle all the stress of being responsible for not only their careers, but for other people's as well. They have people who earn money off of them they need to keep on payroll. Many people have jobs because of them. Justin Beiber has a band, songwriters, publicity people, a manager, an agent, etc. All these people have families that depend on them to earn a paycheck. Can you imagine having ALL that riding on your shoulders at the tender age of let's say 10?
So, yes,we should  feel sorry for Lindsay Lohan, Justin Beiber, and Tiger Woods, for being so young they have too much responsibility and no real childhood. Copyright 2011, written by Kate Johns who is a talented writer who began her writing career in 2004.

Christina Augilera Screwed Up National Anthem

Christina Aguilera messed up and she messed up badly at the Superbowl. Now that Superbowl 45 is finally over, the ads have been watched, the winning team, The Green Bay Packers are enjoying their strident win over the Pittsburg Steelers, (YAY!). Life is returning to normal.

But, not for Miss Aguilera! Seems the magically inclined, usually smooth as silk singer, messed up the National Anthem so badly Sunday night, hardly anyone noticed.
It was a major flub of an entire line of America's most heralded song, with Christina repeating one line, and leaving out another. When I heard it, it sounded like she screwed up one word., watch,which should have been hailed. But alas it was an entire sentence, "What so proudly we watched, at the twilight's last gleaming."

Seems many people did not get it--must have been the booze ,and fuzzy dreams of yet another Superbowl win, screwing up their listening abilities.
I was disgusted, a superstar of Aguilera's magnitude, singing at the Superbowl, had messed with our National Anthem so badly she messed up one word. HAH! Dude, was I wrong or what? She messed up an entire line.
How does someone who is a millionaire star, who can afford a singing coach to read the words for her, screw up the National Anthem? Hello! She is a mega-millionaire that millions of people look up to, and she can't sing the National Anthem correctly?

She screwed up on purpose people! Now, Aguilera gets major promotional publicity out of her gaff. She gets FREE bad pub, people. It's the kind of pub we all want. Bad new is better than no news.
Bad publicity works!!! It works for Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Demi Moore, and have we all forgotten , Britney Spears?!!
Now, Christina will make millions more by selling millions of more records, and cologne because we, fools are reading, and talking about her.
At least the Black Eyed Peas were killer!
