Sigourney Weaver attacks the academy for giving oscars to breasts

59844529Sigourney Weaver must have looked at herself in the mirror, saw some rawhide with nipples rubbing shoulders with her kneecaps and went “Ok, I’m not going to be winning anything anytime soon, so time to start shitting on everything that still qualifies as breasts. Because i hate them. HATE, HATE HAAATE THEM!!!!!”. And so she did. Starting with Hurt Locker. Whose only relation to breasts was that its director was a woman.

FYI, for those 5 people in the universe who didn’t waste 3 hours of their lives watching Avatar, it’s full of 3-dimensional smurf titties.

Via NYPost:

Sigourney Weaver has launched a blistering attack on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, saying James Cameron didn’t win the Oscar for Best Director because he “didn’t have breasts.”

Outspoken “Avatar” star Weaver said she believed Cameron — who lost out to his ex-wife, “The Hurt Locker” director Kathryn Bigelow — didn’t win because the academy wanted to make history by naming its first ever female Best Director.

“Jim didn’t have breasts, and I think that was the reason,” Weaver told Brazilian news site Folha Online over the weekend. “He should have taken home that Oscar.”

In a stunning rebuke hinting at frustration in the “Avatar” camp — who applauded gracefully when “The Hurt Locker” also took the Best Picture Oscar — Weaver added, “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.”

“Avatar” has grossed $743.7 million in the United States and $2.7 billion worldwide, while “The Hurt Locker” has taken $16 million in the US and just more than $40 million worldwide — numbers that make it the least popular Best Picture winner of all time, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

Weaver made her comments as she and Cameron promoted “Avatar” in Brazil and protested against the proposed Belo Monte dam in the Amazon — the world’s third-largest hydroelectric project — which they claim will destroy the jungle and displace indigenous tribes. Cameron also wrote a letter to Brazilian President Lula da Silva, who’s insisting the project will go forward and has refused to meet with him.

Zoe Saldana gets curvy for

1
Zoe Saldana is at her curviest best in the latest issue of Details magazine. Thankfully, the curvy part is confined only to the photoshoot, because the sultry actress does some real straight talking in the bare-all interview. The Avatar actress, who has already captured a wide fanbase as Star Trek’s new Uhura, confesses that she’s a dominant woman who is all about action.

In her own words,

I’ve become a little action wh***. I’ve always gravitated toward the Sigourney Weavers, the f***ing Linda Hamiltons, the Angelina Jolies. I just love strong women that are in tune with their bodies—that don’t just use their bodies as sex tools. I’m very dominant—feisty. I’m not a man-hater, just a very proud woman.

That’s a strong and proud woman! She’s got the right stuff and she knows how to use it the right way. Dominate me, Zoe! Scope out three more pics after the jump.

Sexy as She Wanna Be… Zoe Saldana: “I’m an ACTION Whore …”


Zoe Saldana, appears to be so sweet and innocent, is very specific about what she is, what she likes and what she wants. In a recent interview she gave details on what gives her a rush:

I’ve become a little action whore. I’ve always gravitated toward the Sigourney Weavers, the f*cking Linda Hamiltons, the Angelina Jolies. I just love strong women that are in tune with their bodies—that don’t just use their bodies as sex tools. I’m very dominant—feisty. I’m not a man-hater, just a very proud woman.

I’m such a physical person, action-film work came natural. Even at 5 years old, I was watching Sarah Connor. If you f*cking switched the channel to The Last Unicorn, I would’ve been like, ‘Ah, Jesus—just find your way home, you f*cking unicorn!’

The biggest draw at Comic-Con 2009? Hot actresses!

3girlsatcomiccon

If there’s one thing nerds like more than comic books and sci-fi movies, it’s unattainably hot babes. Which probably explains why so many hotties came out to Comic-Con this year.  In addition to big names like Scarlett Johansson and Megan Fox, less famous babes showed up to grab their slice of attention.

Funny girl Anna Faris mugged for the cameras, as did Audrina Patridge.  Why were they there?  Heck if we know!  As we’ve said before Audrina pretty much shows up wherever she gets invited.  Maybe she just got confused and thought that Comic-Con was a new nightclub or hair salon.

Another gorgeous lady who attended, and actually deserved to be there, was Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana.  She spoke on a panel about female action stars, along with Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) and Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost).  Check out what she had to say about the ultimate ass-kicking heroine, Wonder Woman, below.
