Hollyweirdos use 2019 Oscars Awards to trash border wall and Trump’s immigration policy

Such arrogance! Such gall!

Once again, the Academy Awards show last night was used as a political soapbox. Extremely overpaid people who lie for a living, aka actors, deem themselves our superiors in moral judgment and political knowledge by lecturing down to us.

Variety reports:

[T]his year’s Oscar telecast…played out like a response to Trump, his policies, and even his persona, even though his name wasn’t even mentioned.

“The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history,” said Spike Lee, who won his first Oscar for the screenplay to “BlacKkKlansman.”

Jose Andres, a Trump nemesis, joining with Diego Luna to introduce best picture nominee “Roma,” said the movie “reminds us of the understanding and compassion that we all owe to the invisible people in our lives — immigrants and women — who move humanity forward.”

Hillary Clinton reinforced the point when she tweeted, “Well said, @chefjoseandres #Oscars.”

“There are no borders or walls that can restrain ingenuity and talent,” said Javier Bardem as he presented best foreign language film, his words translated in English subtitles….

Best actor winner Rami Malek noted that Freddie Mercury was an immigrant, and that he was “the son of immigrants from Egypt, a first-generation American.”

Maya Rudolph, presenting along with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, took a dig at the Academy’s foibles and at the president. “There’s no host, there won’t be a popular movie category, and Mexico is not paying for the wall.”

The Nielsen ratings for last night’s Oscars are not yet published. I didn’t watch the show; the last time I watched was 15 years ago, in 2004, when the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King won 11 Academy Awards. Last year’s broadcast was the least-watched in modern history with 26.5 million viewers tuning in.

Who really gives a rat’s behind about the Oscars anymore or about the morons who use the event as a political platform.

I watched a total of about 15 minutes on and off. Given the disgraceful hypocrisy everyone expects, what struck me was the faked spontaneity. But even more so the audience camera shots gave the game away, over and over again—sellout blacks, Hispanics, and their Jewish masters celebrating a new face of America we should ensure they enjoy on their own.

I haven’t been to a movie theatre in 20+ years. I’m not paying to watch that trash. And it’s been even longer since I watched the Oscars on tv. I watch maybe 2 hours of tv at night and when those shows are cancelled I’ll be donating my tv to charity. My goal is no tv by 2020.

I love the infographic at the end. It shows how great is the disapproval against Hollywood.

We didn’t let our TV dial anywhere near that contamination. It was a wonderful Acorn night for us.
I read where some gay guy, Billy nobody, wore what he called a tuxedo gown to resist Trump. How he thought that would matter to anyone with a brain beats me. It was just his excuse to wear a gown and blame it on someone else.
They just keep getting sicker and sicker. Can’t even stand up for their own beliefs, pansies.

No attention was given to one of the greatest humanitarian crises in the world today. Venezuela was never mentioned.

So, why do these self-back-patting people even CARE these days if our “end of days” is nigh? (And how are NOT their arms all broken and/or awry with all that self-congratualtion year after year?) Why are they even making movies and staging the yearly Oscar/ political commentary extravaganza ANYWAY? Why don’t they stick to their forte of acting/art/film-making? Otherwise, b/c they involve themselves knee-deep in politics……According to AOC, their recently self-proclaimed/publicly crowned ” boss,” we’re all dead in a decade anyway: We should Just throw in the chips everyone and be done with it…including Hollyweird, where it might take a… Read more »

Goodey, goodey for Spike Lee–he finally won his first Oscar. Will that satisfy him — I rather think not. I think one problem is that his movies, which I never go to see, all about beating society over the head for perceived wrongs and grievances from bygone eras. Every time I see him, he has some outlandish get-up on, frankly it is hard for me to tell if he is an Earthling, or some creature from outer space. Personally, I find his looks offensive and his negativity just down right boorish. Someone would have to come up with a goodly… Read more »
