Annie Proulx lost her freaking mind

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

First, I have to say this. I worship Larry McMurtry. I think he's one of the best writers who ever lived... EVER. So this isn't fueled by any kind of dislike of him. Same with Annie Proulx, I don't hate her at all, she's a great writer, but she's acting like a 4 year old.

I just want to shake her and yell "Stop it little girl or you'll have to stand in the corner!"

Annie Proulx has written an essay, A FREAKING ESSAY, on how she was robbed at the Oscars because "Brokeback Mountain" didn't win every award there. (She wrote the original story that was adapted by Diana Ossana and McMurtry.)

It's a fine film. A great film. How could it not be? It was written by one of the greatest living men on this planet and based on a great short. But she's writing about how Crash should be called "Thrash" and how [I]We should have known conservative heffalump academy voters would have rather different ideas of what was stirring contemporary culture...[/I]

The fuck is she talking about???????? This isn't Mobile Alabama here, this is LOS ANGELES. Half the people who are eligible to vote for the Oscars are gay, bi, metrosexual or gay friendly. This woman is seriously confused.

So whatcha all think?
