American Film Institute's dangerous connections

I was browsing the AFI site just to find out that without the sponsor of corporations the movie industry would have not a single party. Take a look on how stupid our favorite actors and actresses look when they are at the red carpet here.
If you did click at the link you saw the smiles and the poses celebrities, yes, they are turned into "celebrities", have to do. Just like a zoo.

These are some of the corporations:

"As part of its continuing effort to increase awareness and appreciation of American film history, AFI's 100 Years...100 Laughs is supported by an AFI website, in-theater trailers and a video retail program which launches today. General Motors, Blockbuster, U.S. Postal Service, Warner Bros., Pepsi, Anheuser-Busch, 20th Century Fox, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Walt Disney Pictures are sponsors of AFI's continuing commemoration of the centennial of American movies." (emphasis added)

I still don't know what to think. Fortunately we are having access to movies from others countries lately at the TV which is great because it makes people have other influences.

What happened to the American dream? The Clinton-Obama era turned things upside down. Sad times.
Corporations are killing the Americans and the American culture has changed.
"I am _______ and I am an AFI member." actors and actresses are saying in one of the promotional movies at the AFI site.

Wake up America!

I'm gonna watch a Carlos Saura's movie now.
