Actresses will wear black at the Golden Globes to protest sexual harassment

black dress protestWho knew? All it takes is a LBD – little black dress. Such brave, fighting womyn!

From MSN: Stylish has learned from sources close to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards that many of the female actress who will be attending the show will be wearing black dresses as a sign of protest against sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry.

Sources also suggest it was originally a small group of actresses planning to wear the shade in solidarity but, as the word has gotten out in Hollywood, more actresses have gotten onboard and currently 30 are planning to participate.

“This movement is spreading rampantly and pretty much all the nominated women and others attending are participating,” according to an insider. “All the stylists who already did fittings are now changing out their clients’ original picks for Globes (potentially shifting those dresses to the SAG Awards or other carpets).” The heat is now on to pull black dresses or husttle to get new onyx frocks made!

This comes on the heels of a wave of women coming forward with stories of suffering workplace harassment featuring major industry players Harvey Weinstein and Bret Ratner. While we have yet to hear specific names, the list of nominees include a slew of A-listers who could join in showing their stance in the fight against discrimination by wearing the dark hue.

This isn’t the only Awards-show statement planned for early 2018 — the presenter list at the SAG Awards, which air on January 21, will be made up entirely of women and will be hosted by Kristen Bell.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air on NBC on Sunday, January 7, at 8 p.m. ET.

Meryl Streep: “It’s difficult to be political during Trump’s presidency”

meryl streep

Life is difficult when you have TDS.  And I won’t take her suggestion for the next president, actor Tom Hanks, seriously. After all, she supports a convicted rapist and serial sexual harasser. Her admiration of these characters speaks volumes about her own character.

From Fox News: Three-time Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, who is an outspoken critic of President Trump, said she has no interest in being a political leader during his presidency.

Streep told BuzzFeed News on Tuesday that being critical of Trump has affected her life and she was not interested in being a political leader.

“It’s affected my life because I don’t really — I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be that,” Streep, who dressed as Trump in June, old BuzzFeed. “I’m a really private person, and like a lot of people in show business, I’m actually shy so it’s hard for me to do all this stuff.”

Streep was likely referring to her speech she made during the Golden Globes earlier this year when she accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award and used the platform to criticize Trump for imitating a disabled reporter. Streep said Trump’s behavior “sank its hooks in my heart” and called on the press to hold the president accountable for “every outrage.”

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose,” Streep said.

Trump responded to Streep’s speech shortly after, calling her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”

At the Women’s March a few weeks later, protesters carried signs calling for the “Florence Foster Jenkins” star to run for president.

“I’ve lived through all these eras and it doesn’t feel like an alien landscape,” Streep said regarding today’s political climate, “but it does feel like stepping back in time and how quickly we forget what the world was like 40 years ago.”

Streep, who was talking to BuzzFeed to promote her new movie “The Post” with co-star Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg, announced Hanks should run for president.

“Tom (Hanks), on the other hand, should be president,” Streep said. “I mean really, this guy, there really is no one who knows more about history, statesmanship. No, seriously, it’s true!”

Kate Winslet praising Woody Allen to promote their dismal movie, Wonder Wheel

kate winslet and woody allen

Woody Allen (l) and Kate Winslet (c) filming the sure-to-be-a-bomb of a movie, Wonder Wheel

Kate Winslet is out promoting her latest movie, Wonder Wheel. She apparently needs to say stupid things to garner sympathy for the director, Woody Allen, because the movie is not receiving good reviews. Nor is it bound to be a box office smash.

The plot of the movie from Wikipedia:

The plot follows the wife of a carousel operator, and her husband’s estranged daughter as they pursue the same man. The film revolves around Ginny, the wife of a carousel operator, who perks up when she falls for a handsome lifeguard. But when her husband’s estranged daughter resurfaces and also sets her sights on Mickey, it begins ‘the great unraveling of Ginny. The film is set in a 1950s amusement park on Coney Island.”

The reviews from Rotten Tomatoes:

  • Wonder Wheel gathers a charming cast in an inviting period setting, but they aren’t enough to consistently breathe life into a Woody Allen project that never quite comes together.”
  • “[A] well-acted, yet pointless and, most disappointingly, dull tale of lust.”
  • “Line to line, “Wonder Wheel” clunks and groans.”
  • “Solid performances can’t overcome an anemic plot that’s void of any sympathetic characters.”
  • It’s just a bad movie; a flat melodrama in which some lovely camerawork and a ferocious central performance from Winslet can’t conceal the rote tiredness of it all.”
  • Wonder Wheel will strike fans as an embarrassment and doubters as further evidence of decline – proof of Allen’s lack of interest or engagement in a world beyond his shrinking artistic comfort zone.”

With all the prominent cases of sexual assault throughout Hollyweird and Woody Allen’s unscrupulous past, Winslet is spewing garbage to garner support for Allen and his movie.

From NY Post: It appears that Kate Winslet isn’t trying to rock the boat in her ongoing Oscar campaign for her role in Woody Allen‘s “Wonder Wheel.”

In a recent interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Winslet lauded the famed director for his writing of female characters, despite sexual abuse allegations that have been a cloud over his career.

“I think on some level Woody is a woman,” Winslet joked of Allen’s continuous creation of memorable female roles. “I just think he’s very in touch with that side of himself. He understands the female characters he creates exceptionally well.”

She continued, “His female characters are always so rich and large and honest in terms of how they’re feeling and he just knows how to write dialogue for them to communicate all that.”

The Los Angeles Times previously asked the 42-year-old actress about her thoughts on abuse allegations against Allen, but she played it coy.

“At the end of the day, you look at the facts. He’s an 81-year-old man who went through a two-year court case,” she said. “As far as I know, he wasn’t convicted of anything. I’m an actor; he’s a director. I don’t know his family. I’ve heard and read exactly what you’ve heard and read. I know as much as you do. That’s all I can say.

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Jennifer Lawrence wants to throw a drink in Trump’s face

jennifer lawrence

Libtards are still whining…

Take a chill pill, girl. Better yet, go get on that farm. It’s not like Hollyweird box office will miss you since your latest movies have not been all that stellar.

From HuffPo: Jennifer Lawrence has never met President Donald Trump, but she knows exactly what she’s going to say ― and order to drink ― if she ever runs into him.

“I’ve got a pretty good speech,” the 27-year-old said in an interview with Oprah for The Hollywood Reporter. “And it ends with a martini to the face. I have something to say for all of them. I watch different characters on the news, and I’m like, ‘You just wait.’

Considering Lawrence is a self-proclaimed fan of all things “Real Housewives,” we’re sure her drink-throwing technique would be on point.

“I would [be prepared], definitely,” she told Oprah. “Oh, my God, I’ve been waiting for this moment. I’ll give you a hint — it’s not nice. You wouldn’t want me to say it to you.

We can try to imagine what she might say, since Lawrence came up with a short speech last year when she heard she and Trump would be at the same event.

“I was at a concert where I heard he was attending, so I had my full security team, like I was like, ‘Find Donald Trump,’” she said on the “Graham Norton Show.”

“I was adamant on finding him and making a video of me going, ‘Hey, Trump, f*ck you!’”

Lena Dunham warned Clinton aides that Weinstein was a rapist

lena dunham clint

So the faux-feminist knew about Weinstein yet said nothing publicly. Such a brave womyn.

From Yahoo: Harvey Weinstein was discussing a new documentary TV show with Hillary Clinton’s team the month before he was exposed as an alleged serial sexual predator—and despite her team having been warned about him—according to a new report.

The New York Times published a detailed account on Tuesday, based on nearly 200 interviews, that describes the network of complicity surrounding the disgraced movie mogul. It largely covers how assistants, journalists, and agents helped Weinstein target young actresses and cover up his alleged misconduct.

But the article also details Weinstein’s long-running association with Bill and Hillary Clinton, for whom he raised funds and donated cash. It’s not clear whether allegations of his sexual activities reached the Clintons themselves, but the actress and writer Lena Dunham said she warned Hillary Clinton’s deputy communications director, Kristina Schake, in 2016 that Weinstein was a rapist and that this would come out at some point.

Tina Brown, the veteran journalist and publisher, also said she warned Clinton’s team during the 2008 presidential race, saying it was unwise for the candidate to associate with Weinstein.

“We were shocked when we learned what he’d done,” Clinton communications director Nick Merrill told the Times “It’s despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage. As to claims about a warning, that’s something staff wouldn’t forget… Only [Dunham] can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him.”

According to the Times, Weinstein was emailing with Clinton lawyer Robert Barnett in September this year, discussing distribution rights for “a documentary television show he was working on with Hillary Clinton.”

Other fresh details include Gwyneth Paltrow’s allegation that Weinstein falsely told people she had slept with him, suggesting that for other actresses who followed suit, it would be “the best thing you can do for your career now.”

Apart from that, the article largely expands on what has emerged over the past few months: that Weinstein got people to dig up dirt on women who might report his misconduct, and that his business associates regularly suppressed information on his behalf and tolerated his behavior.

It also shows Weinstein called in favors among friends in the tabloid press, such as The National Enquirer, to run hit pieces on his potential accusers.

Hanoi Jane praises Colin Kaepernick: “Keep kneeling until you can’t stand up!”

hanoi jane

One would expect this praise from the anti-American womyn.

From Hollywood Reporter: The ACLU of Southern California’s annual Bill of Rights awards gala Sunday evening was a star-studded affair with honorees such as Viola Davis, Gina Rodriguez, Jane Fonda and Judd Apatow, but it was Colin Kaepernick who received the loudest applause.

The NFL star took home the Eason Monroe Courageous Courage Award.

“He’s been viciously and unfairly criticized,” said ACLU Southern California’s executive director Hector Villagra. “He’s been called a traitor because too many people in this country confuse dissent for disloyalty. He took a stand knowing some would threaten him and he has had his life threatened which is why that we are profoundly honored to have him here [and] we didn’t publicize his presence tonight.”

When Kaepernick hit the stage, the audience jumped to its feet. “We must confront systematic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat and you defeat it. We all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fell men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised. In the words of Frederick Douglas, ‘If there is a no struggle, there is no progress.'”

Kaepernick received a second standing ovation before Billy Eichner came on stage to present a Bill of Rights Award to Judd Apatow. “I have to follow Colin Kaerpernick?!” Eichner joked. “I didn’t even wear the ACLU ribbon at the Emmys because it didn’t match my tuxedo, which I feel terrible about now, by the way.”

Judd delivered more of a politically charged standup act than an acceptance speech, which included his hope that the alleged “pee tape” of President Donald Trump would be released.

“But if there is a pee tape then who becomes president? Mike Pence,” Apatow said. “Then we need another pee tape, maybe of Trump sitting next to Mike Pence. So, we need another pee tape because then who becomes the president? Paul Ryan… We basically need a tape of a Russian hooker urinating like a firehose on like 40 Republicans until we finally get Bernie Sanders.

Another Matt Damon Hollyweird movie to avoid: “Downsizing”

Based upon Damon’s last movie, Suburbicon, seems that a lot of people are sick and tired of Damon and his politics.

Damon starred in Suburbicon, a libtard George Clooney-directed movie, which failed miserably at the box office. Suburbicon opened on October 27 and as of November 27 had made only $5,775,178. That is no surprise considering Clooney, Damon and the other “star,” gun-grabber Julianne Moore.

Matt Damon has another movie coming out on December 22: Downsizing. The premise of this picture, from Wikipedia:

Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to 5 inches (13 cm) tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small, but with one catch: the procedure cannot be reversed. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to become small and move to a new downsized community—a choice that triggers life-changing adventures. To Paul’s horror and outrage, he finds out that Audrey backed out at the last second. After the couple understands that they do not have a future together, they divorce and Paul must now figure out how to start his life over in a completely different world.”

Damon has been part of the Hollyweird machine that hid the Weinstein sex scandal, promoted gun control and generally been a hypocrite in the highest form. Examples:
