HAHAHAHAHAHAHA: Oscars Hit All-Time Low

They might have done better had they let Gervais host:

From Yahoo: In the latest TV ratings, ABC’s broadcast of the 2020 Oscars averaged 23.6 million total viewers and a 5.3 demo rating, down 20 and 30 percent from last year’s first host-less outing.

This year’s Academy Awards thus hit new lows in both measures, lagging behind the previous “record holder” — the 2018 Oscars hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

The Oscars outdrew both this award season’s Grammys (which were steady-ish with 18.7 million viewers) and the Golden Globes (which dipped to 18.3 million viewers), making it TV’s most-watched entertainment special in a year (since the previous Oscars), though the Grammys edged out the Oscars in the coveted 18-49 demo (having scored a 5.4 rating).

Last year’s host-less Oscars delivered 29.6 million total viewers and a 7.7 demo rating in Nielsen finals.

Feminists see something very sinister in men who don’t want to date ‘woke’ women

Something is happening in Britain that isn’t in the United States.

Prominent Brits are saying they’re sick of the “woke” culture of the Left.

First, it was journalist, TV personality and self-identified liberal Piers Morgan who, on the Ben Shapiro Snow last August, launched a stinging critique of the contemporary Left, calling them “unbearable”.

Then, at 2020 Golden Globes awards in January, comedian and host Ricky Jervais lambasted the Hollywood crowd for their arrogance and hypocrisy.

The latest is actor Laurence Fox (you may know him as Inspector Hathaway in the Lewis TV series).

Fox has become an instant fave of conservatives when he recently said on BBC’s Question Time that Meghan Markle is not a victim of racism (see “Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen”), followed by Fox appearing on the cover of The Sunday Times to tell the world that he does not “date woke women”.

Note: Urban Dictionary defines “wokeness” as “self-righteousness masquerading as enlightenment” and “being constantly offended”.

At that, already ever ready to see chauvinism and insults everywhere, some feminists went into a spitting rage.

In an essay for Medium titled “The Dangerous Rise of Men Who Won’t Date ‘Woke’ Women,” pro-abort UK journalist Vicky Spratt castigates Fox up and down. In addition to Fox not dating “woke” women, he is also guilty of:

  • Being “a very privileged man” who doesn’t believe in “white privilege, irrespective of the fact that he works in a painfully undiverse industry, was privately educated and comes from a wealthy acting family which is nothing short of a dynasty.”
  • “[D]enying racism and sexism, ” which is “nothing short of gaslighting. It’s all very Donald Trump.”
  • Saying “dangerous” things that legitimize a big “backlash against diversity and progress which is unfolding every single day”.

Most “insidious” of all is Fox not wanting to date “woke” women because he exemplifies “(generally white) men” who are “radicalised by anti-feminism” with “hideous and incorrect ideas” and “saying openly sexist and misogynistic things,” whose “hostility towards feminism is feeding directly into far-right movements online.”

According to Spratt, Laurence Fox is “legitimising hatred and division.” Horror of horrors, last year when The Times interviewed Fox, he turned up “wearing a pro-Donald Trump MAGA (Make America Great Again) cap,” which he said was a “social experiment”. But Spratt darkly warns that Fox “wandering the streets in a MAGA cap to provoke ‘hipsters’ can quickly turn into something more sinister.”

Spratt then directly links the “bile” of the “anti-feminist” “far right” to violence, citing the 2016 murder of Labour MP Jo Cox by “far-right terrorist Thomas Mair,” and chat-forum 8chan publishing the manifestos of “the El Paso shooter (who left 20 people dead and many more wounded only a couple of weeks ago), the Poway shooter (who opened fire at a synagogue in California last April) and the Christchurch shooter (who killed 51 people at two mosques in New Zealand last March).”

Of course, Spratt conveniently ignores and omits the many instances of violence committed by the Left, including attacks on people wearing MAGA hats, and assaults by feminists on pro-lifers. See, for example:

Pratt concludes her essay warning that “the far right” is “capitalising on Fox’s words,” and urges that we must “do something about” the “anti-woke, anti-women backlash” that will “burn hotter and faster”.

Hollyweird libtard Ricky Gervais promoting assisted suicide for his Netflix series: “I would take a euthanasia tablet”

From Daily Mail: He has notoriously joked about the most controversial of subjects – but Ricky Gervais is deadly serious about how he sees his own life ending.

Speaking exclusively to Event magazine today, the creator of The Office and Extras reveals: ‘I am in favour of assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia. I know that I’d want it. I hope when I’m ready to go you can just go to Boots and get something. I hope we get more advanced and more liberal, that there’s not all this hate for people who want to do it, all this going, ‘How dare you?’ That’s madness.’

His comments come ahead of After Life, his upcoming Netflix series about death and grief, which is said to be as black as comedy can be.

Gervais, 57, reveals his latest TV character, a depressed journalist who dabbles with hard drugs and thoughts of suicide after his wife’s death from cancer, is his darkest by far and made him face up to his own mortality.

Ricky Gervais smokes heroin in his new Netflix show. That’s hugely controversial, even for him – and as if to prove a point, he takes the hardest of hard drugs on screen not once but twice. ‘Well, it would be a misrepresentation not to say that heroin is very moreish!’ says the comedian with his familiar, wolfish grin. ‘That’s a line from one of my stand-ups: ‘Hobnobs, Pringles, once you pop you can’t stop. Same as heroin.’

Funny, but the creator of The Office and Extras has made a highly successful second career out of winding people up and causing outrage, whether in his stand-up shows or roasting Hollywood stars at the Golden Globes. Now he’s pushing the boundaries in a different way with After Life, a six-part series about death and grief that’s as black as comedy can be – his character even pays for someone to commit suicide in this show. ‘What’s good is that people can’t accuse me of anything, because they know it’s a character.’

Gervais plays Tony, a journalist whose wife Lisa has just died from cancer. Tony can’t kill himself because the dog needs feeding, so he expresses all his anger and grief by saying and doing whatever he wants, no matter who gets hurt. But the portrayal of heroin is still surprisingly positive, as Tony gets comfort from drifting away, into the arms of a vision of his wife. Can Gervais not see why some people might be shocked?

‘There’s absolutely no comment on heroin per se in those scenes,’ he insists, shaking his head. ‘He’s a man in free fall, who wouldn’t have indulged in the underworld when he was married and happy with his wife, but suddenly he’s hanging about with a sex worker and a drug addict because he doesn’t care about himself any more. If you talk to a hundred heroin addicts, I bet you’d find that 90 of them first tried it after a really bad experience. The thing to take from this is that he tries something he would never have tried, and it doesn’t turn out well. He’s not the right man for heroin. Not that anyone is.’

Still, Tony does appear to walk away from the infamously addictive drug after taking it twice, which seems unlikely. Has the real Ricky Gervais ever done the same?

‘I’ve not indulged in that. I believe the injecting of heroin is the addictive bit, as opposed to smoking a little bit in a joint. I make the guy say that’s no big deal [as opposed to injecting]. I don’t want people to think you can take heroin a couple of times and it’s fine. So is there still a conscience? Yes. And is there still a reality and a bit of research here? Yes.’
