Avatar not winning best film oscar

Despite hating all the award ceremony back slapping tacky glitzy fake pretending to be all so much more important than the heart surgeons and relief workers of the world the 2010 Oscars at least got something right…

So Dances with Smurfs was not best,
Though visually it may outclass the rest,
The story was a bore,
In 2D I’d snore,
And to stay to the end would be a test.

My Tribute to the Academy Awards

The Oscar cermony is full of glitz,
But somehow just gets on my tits,
Their pretentiousness may,
Cause me to say,
Get a proper job you poncy gits.
