Who really thinks thinks the world would be a dark and

a dreary place if we didn't have actors? When you hear them talk about themselves you get the idea they think without them there would be mass suicide in the streets.

1. maybe without music but not actors, but good actors do make life better

but i also don't really care to hear them talk about acting. that's why i usually don't watch entertainment talk shows and things like award shows.

i just watch the movie, tv show etc.

3. To be Irish is to know the world will always shit on you, to be Irish Catholic is to know it


will be diarrhea.

Just the truth.

14. I am Irish (County Donegal) Catholic, and know that the world's best thespians come from Hibernia.

So your OP is sad drivel.

7. Dreary? Perhaps so, but not dark.

We can thanks the Engineers for our world of light.

9. Frankly, I don't think your life could get much darker and drearier

judging by the tone and subject of most of your posts.

10. So spare yourself, don't watch,

 

It really is that simple.

Besides, what do you expect from any such award show? The Oscars are a self serving, self congratulatory party for the movie industry. What, you think they're going to tell you that they are unimportant?

16. Ah, so it is just tonight, during the Oscars, that you decide to make this comment.

 

OK, that's fine.

But you see, lots of people in lots of professions like to think that what they do is one of the most vital jobs on the face of this planet, and some actually make a very good case for that point.

It is human nature to impart importance about what one does. It bolsters the sense of self worth, improves mental health, hell, it just might make a person have the ability to get through a really crappy day. In other words, it is human nature. My suggestion, just roll with it and move on.

20. the world would be just fine without professional actors. maybe better. or maybe people would

 

just use more drugs in their attempts to escape reality.

i've come to a place where i think most entertainment is propaganda & mind control.

23. If aliens came down to earth

and saw the profession we call acting I doubt they would understand it. If you think about it, it's weird. People act out all this terrible drama and pretend scenarios and the rest of us sit there and watch it.

What a weird behavior. Every now and then while watching something where the acting and dialouge seems particularly contrived, I will find myself looking around and asking myself: What are we all doing?

24. I appreciate good acting.

I'm not sure real acting is all that valued in America, though.

I'm talking about the kind where any woman can look any way she acts.
It's not about "looks."
