炯叔叔昨晚在電視看完奧斯卡金像獎頒獎典禮,真是越看越開心,越看越感動。

不不不,開心感動不是因為那一套電影拿了獎,是因為看奧斯卡你們可以感受那自由的氣氛,包容的的胸襟 - 這些東西現在在香港已經沒有可能再找到。

好,說說幾個亮點:

1The Opening Song – Neil Patrick Harris 載歌載舞玩光影特效開場,一貫奧斯卡開場的熱鬧。但今年更好玩的是自嘲!

在Neil Patrick Harris 和Anna Kendrick歌頌電影的時候,突然Jack Black上台,「唱衰」現在荷里活流水作業靠不斷重複重複做漫畫英雄去賣錢,怎麼千方百計要在大陸賺人仔。你們看看Jack Black的歌詞。

Stop. This is what you sound like:

‘Movies, movies wow they rock’

Listen kid, it’s all a big crock.

Now it’s market trends

and fickle friends

and Hollywood baloney.

Listen Neil, you’re better off just polishing your Tony

This industry’s influx;

it’s run by mucky-mucks,

pitching tents for tentpoles and chasing Chinese bucks.

Opening with lots of zeroes,

all we get is superheroes.

Superman, Spider Man, Batman,

Jedi man, sequel man, prequel man.

Formulaic scripts

and after 50 Shade of Grey, they’ll all have leather whips.

In a world where our breeds are becoming machines,

the only screens we’re watching are these.

Screens are these

Screens are these

The only screens we’re watching…

你們覺得香港金像獎膽這樣玩這樣嗎?

這樣坦白的自嘲,這就是胸襟

[題外話:Neil Patrick Harris – 呢個「弟弟」炯叔叔真係由細睇到佢大。點解?Neil Patrick Harris其實由童星開始做起,當年炯叔叔讀大學的時候,很喜歡看他的“Doogie Howser, M.D.”,哇,而家咁大個仔咯。Time does fly! ]

2John Legend & Common’s Acceptance Speech John Legend & Common”Glory”贏了奧斯卡原唱歌曲。上台領獎是,不忘說到現在世界不同地方需要去爭取平等權利,同時現在對於黑人的種族歧視其實仍不少於當年。 其中,更提到香港。

it’s a symbol for discrimination based on “race, gender, religion, sexual orientation and social status. This is for the kid from the South Side of Chicago to those in France standing up for freedom of expression to those in Hong Kong protesting for democracy.”

Selma is now because the struggle for justice is right now. We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than there were in slavery in 1850.”

你們覺得香港金像獎膽容許有人這樣撐雨傘運動嗎?

就算有人夠guts講,我相信TVB肯定會馬上就cut掉!

夠讓人這樣自由的說,這就是胸襟

[題外話:John Legend & Common的話一出,馬上招來大陸網民謾罵。這就是中國人的胸襟 ]

3Citizenfour Citizenfour是關於Edward Snowden爆美國 NSA監聽醜聞的documentary film。你看你看,首先,這種敏感電影題材基本上沒有可能在中國/香港有人碰(以前70/80年代香港會有,現在不會了。點解?那會有老闆支持?還有,藝人導演不怕被大陸封殺嗎?)。拍了也算了,居然奧斯卡能夠讓他們贏了一個最佳紀錄片獎!你覺得如果在香港拍一套關於香港/大陸政府醜聞的電影,會有機會拿獎嗎?

能夠讓一齣報導自己政府醜聞documentary film勝出拿獎,這就是胸襟!

4)其他亮點- 其實很多不同藝人會借奧斯卡宣揚不同的信息,譬如

4aGraham Moore(憑The Imitation Game拿了最佳改編編劇獎) 分享自己曾經自殺的經驗,勸那些想自殺的小朋友不要怕, “I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there that feels weird and different … Stay weird.”

4bPatricia Arquette(憑Boyhood拿了最佳女配角獎) 宣揚女性平權,同工同酬!

“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America. 

Meryl Streep 和Jennifer Lopez聽到Patricia Arquette後馬上拍爛手掌,大聲叫好!

4c)Alejandro González Iñárritu(憑Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) 拿了最佳導演、最佳原創編劇和最佳電影獎宣揚希望對墨西哥政府能夠重振起來,也希望對美國對新移民的尊重!

“The ones who live in Mexico, I pray that we can find and build the government that we deserve.  The ones that live in this country, who are just part of the latest generation of immigrants in this county, I just pray they can be treated with the same dignity and respect as the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation.”

[題外話:Sean Penn 在頒獎給Alejandro González Iñárritu之前說的一句戲言“Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?” 引來美國很多網民狂插。但其實很多不知道Sean Penn和Alejandro González Iñárritu是很熟的,Sean Penn就是之前拍Alejandro González Iñárritu的“21 Grams”帶來無數的榮耀。Alejandro González Iñárritu後來也說Sean Penn就是很喜歡這樣跟他開玩笑]

[題題外話:這兩年奧斯卡真是墨西哥人的天下,今年Alejandro González Iñárritu是大贏家,去年就是同鄉Alfonso Cuarón Orozco憑”Gravity”在奧斯卡贏了不少獎項,真厲害!]

所以,看完奧斯卡金像獎後,你還會想看香港金像獎頒獎嗎?
