The Oscars 2006 - Skateboarding Gets Robbed Again

Oscar sk8 statue

There's really no good reason to watch award shows, especially the Oscars. Do the best films win? Do the best actors and actresses win?


Actually, I usually fall asleep about 10 minutes into these things and wake up wishing I'd skipped the whole thing and watched a sk8 video instead. Speaking of which, why aren't skateboard films ever given any recognition? I think it's time that the fossils behind the Academy Awards get with the program and recognize the importance of skateboard media.

If Skateboarding Invaded the Academy Awards

The lesser known (or cared about) awards...

Award Went to... Should Have Been..
Best Dressed Penelope Cruz Jim Greco
Worst Dressed Nicole Kidman Lizzard King

It'll never happen, but I think skateboard media should be acknowledged at a higher level and The Oscars should be lampooned.
