    Renner is truly fortunate to still be alive, let alone still have all his limbs.

    Chris Evans asked if anyone had checked on the SnowCat. Renner replied that it was out of fuel.

    • Frippery says:

      I genuinely thought he was going to die. It’s morbid but there it is. He is so lucky to be alive.

    • Luu Linh says:

      I’m kinda happy he has 30+ broken bones because I was expecting something like he lost a limb.

    • zazzoo says:

      My in-laws are farm people, and every so often they have stories like this about someone from their community. It’s always horrifying to hear. I hope for the best for Jeremy Renner. He’s fortunate to have survived, but it’ll be a long road to recovery.

      • Lady D says:

        My elderly neighbour died from a crushed chest. His bull head-butted him.

      • Elizabeth Phillips says:

        My sister’s ex-father-in-law was killed when his tractor flipped over. It happened first thing in the morning and his wife didn’t know until afternoon when he didn’t come for his lunch.

    Been reading some discussions on how if you make awards gender neutral, women get left out, and boy, did this sure prove the case.

    • Twin Falls says:

      +1

    • Case says:

      Yeah. While I absolutely believe awards should be more inclusive in their wording instead of male/female or actor/actress, I can’t think of a way of doing so in which everyone who deserves to be recognized still is.

      • Emily_C says:

        Plays a masculine or feminine role maybe? That could get awful dicey though, idk.

      • Jennifer says:

        I have no idea how to handle the nonbinary in awards. There’s not that many of them to justify having their own labeled category probably, but if we abolish the gender rules, then nobody other than men will get in, so what’s the point.

        Also probably confusing if an NB actor is playing a cisgendered character. I don’t even know.

      • Frippery says:

        It’s a sloppy comparison, but when the Oscars don’t have, I think, at least 3 nominees for the best song category, they just don’t do that category. Maybe something like that for major awards? There needs to be at least 3 non-binary performers nominated and then there is a non-gendered award that year.

        Or performers who do not identify as male or female could decide which category to compete in, best male actor in a lead role or best female actor, etc, etc

      • Veronica S. says:

        My feeling is it’ll only become an issue if the CHARACTER is NB. We call it actor/actress because male and female characters are typically played by same sex performers. What you’re actually awarding is the portrayal of a man or woman on screen. Simplest solution if the character doesn’t fit that binary is to just slap them into two categories, even if people may find that slightly unfair. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Re: Regal going bankrupt.

    There is absolutely no doubt that the pandemic changed how we watch movies forever, but even before that, the movie theater industry needed to be rebooted. It’s too expensive. The cost of concessions is ridiculous. Other people are loud and obnoxious during the whole movie. It can cost a family more than $100 to take their kids to see the latest Disney film or whatever. I absolutely do not want theaters to go out of business, but that business model hasn’t really worked for the consumer for a long ass time and most theaters didn’t even try to change. All the lockdowns did really was give people much better alternatives.

    I’m not going to pay $20 for a ticket and then another $20 for stale popcorn and a drink to sit down and have other people coughing, talking loudly and on their phones with that bright glow of light in the dark for the entire movie.

    • zazzoo says:

      @Frippery – X100000!!

      I was ringing this bell even before the pandemic, but now even more so. I do feel bad for theater franchise owners. They don’t make money on ticket sales, just the overpriced awful concessions. I used to live near a locally managed Landmark theater that sold actual gourmet food along with wine. Overpriced, but at least it felt like a more elegant experience. At this point, I honestly don’t know who is going to movies regularly besides teenagers, and teens don’t have that much extra cash for concessions. Blockbuster refused to change their business model and they became a punchline. That’s what’s happening to movie theaters now.

      • Lizzie says:

        Landmark in my area is our preferred theater. Only complaint is the don’t reserve seats. We buy two tickets, one of us (me) saves seats and the other (husband) buys drinks and a small popcorn.

    • Ana170 says:

      A huge part of the problem is the movie studios. In order to keep as much of the profit for themselves they make it unnecessarily hard for theaters to stay in business. Concessions cost so much because theaters don’t make money selling tickets. Hollywood as a whole is in trouble.

    • Jennifer says:

      Last time I bought a movie concession, a Slurpee was $10. I can get that at the gas station for $1.50.

      The annoying thing here is that Regal owns both mainstream movie theaters in my town, so…. yeah, that’ll go well.

      But in all honesty, I am not into The Movie Theater Experience, especially in pandemic. Sitting still in the dark, can’t pause the movie to pee (also runpee.com is now an app you have to download and get “pee coins” to check), other people’s shenanigans. It’s like you pay $20 just to leave your house.

    • trillion says:

      the fidelity and availability of home AV gear has massively improved in the last few years as well. And now companies are doing day and date releases, etc.

  4. Well Wisher says:

    He has a long recovery process ahead.
    I wish his all the best, will little pain as possible.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Wow, that is brutal. I honestly can’t believe he survived that and is doing as well as he seems.

  6. Sass says:

    I’ve noticed that the Renner camp has been delivering the news on Jeremy in a slow drip, likely because it was touch and go for quite some time, and I don’t think he’s fully cleared in terms of whether he will survive just yet. I also thought he was going to die. Further, I don’t think 30+ broken bones is the full extent of his physical injuries. I hope it is, but considering how cautious they’ve been with releasing information (which is their right) I have a feeling we won’t know more for some time.

    • Barbara says:

      He was released from the hospital last week. I’m sure he went home with nursing care and he’ll have long rehab ahead of him but he wouldn’t have been discharged if he was still in danger of dying from his immediate injuries.

      The Instagram picture he posted shows a physical therapist bending his right leg. It looks like he has bandages on his left leg but he’s not hooked up to machines or anything.

  7. BeanieBean says:

    I’m glad to see the Duggars & their ilk will be the focus of a docu-series.

  8. Mation says:

    I was convinced he’d lost his leg at the very least, so thank God he’s ok. Praying he won’t go out in that vehicle without someone with him ever again.
    Hope he’s coping well, a good actor.

  9. HeyKay says:

    I’m glad to hear he is at hime.
    He is only at his own home because he is a multi-millionaire who can afford to pay the costs himself.
    A working person would have been sent to a Nursing home w/PT and OT available.

    He has a long recovery ahead, and I wish him the best!
    Lucky to be alive applies.

  10. Sandra says:

    I am watching the “American “ news as I write. I love celebitchy because I have similar points of view. Disclosure: am Canadian. What is happening in California? Is it possible to stop “our prayers are with You.”. It seems like an empty saying.

  11. Jessica says:

    Regal: two of the theaters they’re closing are in my old college town, one of which my friend and I would go to midnight movies at every week. For awhile out of college, I would go regularly but now it needs to be a big movie to make me pay for it. As everyone else pointed out- the current movie going experience is no bueno

  12. one of the marys says:

    I wonder how the late run theatres are doing? Not sure of the lingo but that’s what we called them in school. The one in Burnaby I think was called The Dolphin had movies for pretty cheap that were six months + out and we loved it. As long as you weren’t desperate to see a new release it was a great outing

  13. one of the marys says:

    Jeremy Renner could document his recovery then do an inspirational series for Netflix covering all the kinds of services offered by physio, OT, rehab etc I bet there’d be an audience for it and no I’m not kidding or being morbid. If he’s out of commission say for 12-18 months it would be a way for him to stay motivated, positive, engaged etc

    • Doppelgangers R'Us says:

      @One of the Mary’s
      I just got a book called “Back From Broken” that is helping people in a similar way. I would definitely watch that type of series, and I think there is definitely an audience for it. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  14. j.ferber says:

    Honestly amazed he made it. The 14,000 pound vehicle rolled over him, crushing his chest and legs. No idea how he survived that, but God bless.
