Sigourney Weaver needs to stop talking


"I was robbed! I should have won the Oscar for Ghostbusters 2."

Yeah, so, speaking of boobs … Sigourney Weaver bitched to the press that James Cameron didn’t win the Best Director Oscar because he doesn’t have breasts. So, does that mean all the men who did win Best Director do have breasts? I’m confused.

She went on to bad mouth Kathryn Bigelow’s “Hurt Locker” saying, “”In the past, ‘Avatar’ would have won because they [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions like ‘Ben-Hur.’ Today it’s fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw.”

Please take note that nowhere in that quote does Weaver actually say that “Avatar” was the best movie of the year, because of its excellent performances and original script. It should have won Best Picture and Best Director because it was a “big production.”

In a related story, Sigourney Weaver is a bitch and a sore loser, which is depressing. I expect more from Ripley.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. It’s all about trends. When big money is the trend, big money movies win. When Indy films are the trend, they are the ones that win. In any case, it does seem Miss Weaver has gotten bitter in her old…er age…

  2. I’m going to show some biases here so let me get them out up front:

    1) I love Sigourney Weaver
    2) I hate the Huffington Post
    3) I hate Brazil Nuts

    There. Now I would like to defend Sigourney and point out that she *is* in Brazil promoting Avatar. I doubt that she honestly believes that. I’m sure it was a bit of good spirited trash talking that has been blown way out of proportion through 2nd and 3rd hand reports from a Brazilian to English translation.

    Finally, go watch Death and the Maiden. You won’t regret it.

    P.S. – I love you, Sigourney. Call me.

  3. 1) I love Sigourney Weaver, too … or at least I used to.
    2) I like the Huffington Post, and I read this story on many websites.
    3) I love Brazil Nuts.

    There. Now, maybe you are right, Aaron. But I think a true professional can promote her movie without trash talking.

    Also, saying “Well, he didn’t have breasts” is an assy thing to say.
