Do you remember the Oscars, the 60s, 70s, or even the 80s? Certain words have stuck in the minds of generations, a taste that do not change with age. Take Oscar, for instance. “Oscar, can you hear me?” go the eternal question. Some say yes, some say no. But whatever your answer may be, there is one thing that you can almost guarantee regardless of gender, color or generation.
That word is peace. Oscar is an Oscar, so he must be peace. Other Oscar’s have been peace, too, but the world (at least the lot of it) has realized that Oscar is peace. Oscar is an Oscar… and Oscar is a genius.
Oscar’s humility has been cartoonishly played out in movies like Rounders, but in real life, his humility is probably more accolades than berating him. While promoting Rounders, Jeff Cronnen (played brilliantly by Matt Damon) explained the reason behind his Oscar comment. “My mom’s generation was about peace. We didn’t know any different. We just went to the movies, and the theaters were louder than any noisy street. And we had Beats by Public Enemy behind us. That was us. That was us happening.”
Another famous utterance that Oscar has given us is his comment, “Gets to be love.” That Oscar has achieved peace through awards, and more specifically through the single- mindedness of awards. awards have taught us that it is possible to get to love something; you just have to make a film about it.
And in the case of the Academy Awards, the Bond films, you can almost guarantee that 007 will be the leading actor. That Bond will be the leading actor; will be the leading film actor; and will probably be the only leading film actor (at least until James Bond (accidentally described as an actor) returns).
This Sunday, Kevin Spacey will host “Oscars So White,” the single most anticipated event on the Oscars’ 28th anniversary held annually in Hollywood.

The last time poker was shown live on TV was September 15, 2000. The last live United States poker broadcast on a U.S. television station was November 18, 2003. Since then, the networks have primarily televised poker premier events, the World Series of Poker, the European Poker Tour and the World Poker Tour Championship.
NBA basketball has found its own moderate middle ground: basketball’s cultural phenomenon. With top players, millions of dollars in broadcast revenue and a youth culture addicted to hip-hop, poker is suddenly the Southern half of the basketball league.
“We’re about the only sport where you can fill a Barclays Center, seat 1,000 people,” Silver said.
“It’s a little bit about the culture that we have here in New York, a little bit about basketball, a little bit about baseball. It’s nice to have a little bit of everything.”
Some national cable networks have started to cover the NBA, with “So Money It Can’t Be Hidden.” The film, released in November as part of “Dazed and Confused” director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Play roll series, tells the story of a group of college buddies who fix long road trips by hiding $100,000 in rolls of bills in their bags.
“It’s cool, a little deflate,” Hawkins said of the colts. “It’s a little more naked money than poker, but it’s our population.
“You can put a littlelassibotics on it, you know,” he continued. “And these guys are about 5/2 (on the card) at the Hilton.
“It could go all the way up to 10/1, if people want to do that.”
