He has Harvey Weinstein to thank for those awards. Since when did the INDEPENDENT Spirit Awards become so mainstream?

He disgusts me, hopefully he’ll go away as soon as the awards season ends.

I, along with a lot of people posting understand what George Clooney meant when he once said he wanted to “sock Russell in the f***ing mouth”. The little time I’ve seen him on camera this awards season, this guy comes off as a major douche bag, in particular – his reaction to Riva’s win for best lead actress at the BAFTAs earlier this year. God forbid anyone should win over his muse, Jennifer Lawrence! Take a bite out of some humble pie and put your energy into making movies, NOT towards being a f*cking d*ckhead!

@Czarina: it was totally normal for him to be disappointed: Jennifer Lawrence won every prize until BAFTA.O Russel believes in “his” actors
and Clooney is a jerk because if he’s Cool Clooney ,it’s thank to O Russel and the movie they did together

@dont hit i’m belgium: i agree with @Czarina, his reaction to jennifer losing the BAFTA was rude and disrespectful.

# 8

@dont hit i’m belgium: It’s fine to believe in your actors, but stick to supporting them – have respect for their peers who are just as deserving to win such awards. I know his personality won’t ruin his career in hollywood – there’s plenty of douche directors out there like O’Russell – Michael Bay and James Cameron for example. It’s off-putting to see people who can’t handle being criticised/challenged in a graceful manner, it makes it difficult for people to root for the guy.

I think he’s a headcase.
