    I admit that i found the tribute boring as well and that I'm not sure he's done enough to deserve it. Guess we all have differences of opinion.

    Steady with the bashing folks!

  5. Darlene Bonnar

    Was so sorry to have missed the recent AFI to Warren Beatty. I never miss them and was upset I had. Is there a way to purchase it on video?

    In addition to being boring, those sorts of tributes are also the acme of phonyness. People who couldn't give a shit about Warren Beatty and past/future honorees, whether at the AFI or elsewhere, show up to get their picture taken, and hopefully find their names listed as guests at an “in-event.”

    There are “heartfelt,” teary-eyed speeches about the greatness of the honoree, and little stupid jokes that are as funny as capital punishment.

    But then again, after stuffing their faces and having a few drinks mixed with a few pills and/or powder, people will always find ways to enjoy themselves. Even if those hypocrites must laugh at the idiotic jokes and applaud the dishonest, mind-numbing speeches.

    How very human…

    Too bad Leslie Caron's former husband Peter Hall wasn't around to pay Warren Beatty his own sort of tribute.
