    Mixing politics and movies

    Yesterday, was the ceremonies for Nika Awards. Nika is the Russian Oscar, essentially. An award for movie stars.

    This year, the ceremony was briefly disrupted by a small scandal.

    It was hosted by Kseniya Sobchak

    and Evegniy Mironov (who personally handed out the trophies)

    As actresses Chulpan Khamatova (above right) and Dina Korzun (left) were being awarded special Nikas for their charity work (with their foundation "Giving Life" that helps sick children all over Russia and Former CCCP), Sobchak, who recently shown some sympathy for the Opposition, suddenly challenged Khamatova for her endorsement of Vladimir Putin in the Presidential Election.

    She asked if Putin and the government's financial and other support for her foundation motivated Chulpan's support for Putin.

    Immediately she (Sobchak) was drowned out by whistling and jeering from the audience, and, before Chulpan herself could even answer the question, Mironov, the gentleman knight in shining armor that he is, quickly leaped to her defense

    shouting back at Sobchak that Chulpan is "a sacred person, a saint, she helps children in this country; while you [Sobchak] and your liberal bastard friends sit around on your couches and spew stupidity out of your mouths" or something to that extent. He essentially confessed his love to Chulpan right up there on stage lol

    Chulpan later said, simply, that this evening was a celebration of Russian cinematography and should stay that way. Politics should never have been brought into it, she said. But she did thank Mironov for defending her as he did haha

    Just from the first few comments on each video, one can see how much "support" Sobchak has.

    Video one:

    "Stupid horsefaced bitch [Sobchak] should keep her mouth shut"
    "What idiot let her [Sobchak] host the Nikas?"
    "Sobchak is compared to Khamatova is what an insect is to a human person"

    Video two:
    "People are judged by their deeds. Chulpan's foundation saves children's lives. Mironov is the best of the best of the Russian theater. And Sobchak is a dumb orange mare"

    Etc.

    Well, it is understandable. She is a hypocrite, Ksenia Sobchak. If she is a opposition activist, why does she ride around like this

    LMAO I love Russia...
