Brett Ratner got fired from the Oscars


Brett Ratner has been forced out as producer of this years Academy Awards telecast, and yes it's because of Hollywoods predictably typical PC bullshit. Deadline says...

This comes hours after Academy president Tom Sherak said he was standing behind Ratner despite his using the word "fag" in a Q&A to promote Tower Heist, and speaking graphically about his sex life on the cable TV show Attack of the Show and also in a phone interview with the Howard Stern show. Now, the biggest question is: Will Eddie Murphy stay on as Oscar host?

Brett Ratner is an asshole and a terrible director but holy shit this is stupid. He obviously wasn't saying anything homophobic. But now the show needs a new producer and a new direction. Here's a few suggestions...

- make the losers leave. - If the winner is ugly just bring the statue to them and let them wave from the crowd. - If the winner is some foreigner hire a fake interpreter and have him say stuff like "America sucks" and "wow there are a lot of blacks in here."
