AND THE OSCAR FOR BEST PSYCHO PERFORMANCE GOES TO…

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Saddle River NJ, in honor of last night’s Academy Awards—and actor Will Smith’s unhinged outburst—local bad-boy-turned good, Thomas Giacomaro, tells us his nickname was once “the Italian Hannibal Lecter.”

The Anthony Hopkins drama, The Silence of the Lambs, swept the Oscars exactly 30 years ago winning five main categories—Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. 

A decade later, Giacomaro—who penned his 2018 memoir The King of Con: How a Smooth-Talking Jersey Boy Made and Lost Billions, Baffled the FBI, Eluded the Mob, and Lived to Tell the Crooked Tale, earned the moniker—in prison.

The nickname evolved after he’d completed a month of “Diesel Therapy”—that’s when guards move you from prison to prison every two days to mess with your head.

“They shackle you and put you on a bus and chain you to a dozen other inmates, like animals,” Giacomaro describes.

When you arrive at the next prison, the correctional officers take you to meet your new cell mate.

“It’s usually some 6’6” savage named Bubba, whom you’ve just woken up and he’s mad,” says the NJ native. “He wants to kill you. He probably has a shiv under his dirty blanket.”

Giacomaro—never the muscular, athletic type—figured a way to scare each new Bubba he came across.

He’d give them a crazy-eyed look and say, “Don’t *&^% with me. Because eventually you’ll fall asleep. But I never sleep. And you’ll wake up with me on top of you biting your ears and nose off, biting your entire face off!” (With some fava beans and a nice chianti, he should have added)

The crazy talk worked, and he never had to chew off anyone’s body part.

If only Oscar presenter Chris Rock had this fine acting advice last night, when Will Smith (who’s played boxer Muhammad Ali on film) hopped on stage with a look that could kill.

  1. Desperate for ratings so they created this ‘incident’.

    The movie business is dead. They have no one to blame but themselves.

  3. Had any other white actor done this, their career would be over having been shunned from the industry.

  4. Can u imagine these self absorbed liberal elites receiving $140k gift bags while they stepping over the homeless to get to the red carpet. Hypocrites.

    1. BUT, they do so much by “raising awareness”.

  5. Once the Oscars stopped being about movies, and instead became about virtue signaling, people stopped watching.

    1. How will they do that?

    2. CNN analyst did. People will do anything for attention and ratings. The best we can do is ignore them including switching our kids to flip phones to insulate them from the sewage that all media embraces today.

      1. I don’t see how Rangappa’s tweet blames Trump for Smith’s actions.

        1. She explicitly blamed Trump, did you not actually read it???

          1. Actually she did not blame Trump. She compared the lack of audience reaction to the general apathy that allowed Trump to get the power that he did.

            1. She actually did blame Trump. It’s out there for anyone to read for themselves.

  7. Let’s face it the Oscars is over, done, finished.
    It was squirm worthy anyway as all it was, was a platform for “The Mutual Admiration Society”.

  8. Something really smells here, I think it was all all that act.

  9. This is what happens when you take the once classy Oscars and turn it into a Black Entertainment shit show.

    Sure miss Johnny Carson hosting the Oscars back in the 1970s when movies and stars had substance.

  11. Not worth watching – true for years past! To have had folks singing and dancing in front of a screen honoring those who died recently was beyond belief. Not worth calling entertainment, just a show of stupidity – Hollywood sure has changed! What were those alleged 13 million viewers were thinking???
