The things they say

“Last year, we were like the dolls of the Oscars. They couldn’t even stop us from going up onstage! This year, they don’t even give us a ticket! So I hit ’em up (phoned them). (They said), ‘Negative’. I’m like, ‘I don’t need two, I ain’t bringing a crew!’ and they were like, ‘Nah.’ Third tier, seat filler, nothing.” THE HURT LOCKER star ANTHONY MACKIE has been shut out of Sunday’s (27Feb11) Academy Awards, despite the fact he starred in last year’s (10) Best Picture winner.
