FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION ...

Why Is Lea Thompson

at the Oscars?

2/26/2012 3:19 PM PST BY Johnny Lopez

0226_lea_thompsonFor some reason, former "Caroline in the City" star Lea Thompson was one of the first to arrive at the Oscars today.

Perhaps she is getting an honorary Academy Award for her stellar work in "Howard the Duck."

Whatever the reason, it's some kind of wonderful.

They invite everyone to these things. Stupid "Real Housewives", the Kardashian whores, morons who had some kind of failed TV show for half a season, you name it. I guess the people who dont get nominated and are real stars don't show up so they bring in the remains.

What is wrong with the staff today? First the Seinfeld post, now this. Lea Thompson has worked steadily since the 80s. She was in J.Edgar last year so it is probably related to that.

I'm sure there will be plenty of stars who shouldn't be there, but will be.

Maybe it's because she was in the movie J.Edgar.

Well, TMZ, Lea Thompson was in the "Back To The Future" franchise, and other movies as well.... So, while none of that may be even close to, "Gone With The Wind," L.T. is a movie actress...And she was great in "Back...".

She has more relevance in hollywood than any of the Kardashians, and they seem to turn up to everything.

TMZ, what are YOU doing at the oscars? The same cameramen who screamed at Whitney Houston's pallbearers to 'get out of the f-cking way, what is your f-cking problem?' when they were trying to put her casket in the back of the hearse. You'd be more welcome at the Razzies.
