E. Annie Proulx Can't Stop The Emotion

E. Annie Proulx has a cry in The Guardian over Blokedick Mountain not winning the Oscar for Best Picture.

I read an interview with this minger a while ago and she gave the impression of being the most obnoxious, irritating, intellectually bankrupt and self-absorbed woman in the world, without also being Germaine Greer. In her post-Oscars whinge, Proulx defeats her own logic by first complaining that they didn't win the statue, and then by saying "If you are looking for smart judging based on merit, skip the Academy Awards". So the Academy judges wouldn't know a good picture if it hit them in the face, but you're nevertheless irked that they didn't award yours? Nice going, Lady McBrainington.

Of course, Crash is probably the worst movie ever made (I say this with total confidence, having not even seen it), and certainly not deserving of the accolade it received, but still, shut up, E. Annie Proulx.

That article is an impressive bunch of sour grapes. "Trash - excuse me - Crash" - well, if that isn't funny, then...oh wait, it isn't funny. What a bore.

Annie Proulx doesn't care about black people.

Remember when Annie Proulx alienated her entire doting audience at a Melbourne Writers Festival talk, by saying she'd rather be at home shooting grouse?

I don't know if it was the blasting small, defenseless creatures out of the sky, or suggesting that a bunch of pensioners in Melbourne isn't the finest possible company in the world, was what worked against her there.

Yeah, but I know how she feels. Sometimes when I am giving one of my sermons on the corner of Bourke & Elizabeth Streets, I think about how I would much rather be at home shooting Annie Proulx.
