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.

What do you mean "why is she at the oscars" There are a ton of actors there that aren't nominated for anything or haven't starred in a movie in a while, stupid TMZ.

You know I love you TMZ but the real question is why are the low-brow, low class, no account s***bags from TMZ at the Oscars? You guys contribute nothing but vile innuendo while glorifying rudeness, shame and hostility. Big fan of the show though...Say Hi to Harvey for me!

She just happens to be in a fairly popular TV show right now called Switched at Birth and she's married to the director of Big Love, Jane By Design and Hung. She's far more relevant than half the people you sycophants report on religiously.

She had an incredibly small part in J. Edgar.

People forget she was in a series of movies called "Back To The Future". She was also in "Red Dawn". Those two things, to me, made her more worthy that some of those wannabes, ( i.e. KIM K.).

WTF was her sitcom? The entire "tension" was, is this gay guy gonna kiss this frumpy gal? How on EARTH did it last so long and how does this nontertaining vacuum Lea get work let alone an invite to ANYTHING? One of Hollywood's enduring mysteries, like the Black Dahlia.

She has made very nice movies for back inthe day, and some are still classics, much better than some nobodies that were in there just to eat and get drunk for free.
