The Academy Awards (aka “Oscars”) supposedly represent the best films Hollywood has to offer. In the past, what we used to call “movie stars” competed for the top prize. That was then, this is now. Today all the mystique is gone. Thanks to an overabundance of media, we know EVERYTHING there is to know about our celebrities…and the more I know, the less I like them. Formerly, movie studios protected (even covered-up) their images. Now we know all about their sex lives, their proclivities, and worst of all, their politics.
Last year, the Academy received a great deal of criticism for not nominating any black actors (namely, Will Smith for “Concussion”.) Consequently, “lifetime” members were let go and replaced with blacks and the politically correct.
I can’t really comment on most of the films that were nominated because I didn’t see them. The best of 2016? I saw “Vaxxed”, a documentary on MMR vaccines and whether or not they cause autism. The reason it wasn’t nominated is clear – the Hollywood establishment is in bed with the AMA. Truth be told, I believe the reason these massive drugs are being given to infants, is to create a more controllable populace.
I cannot sit through three hours of Hollywood cheese (labeled entertainment) or the endless speeches against Trump. Don’t we already know they hate our President? Do we have to hear their opinions – not based on fact – but on tripe peddled by the MSM, which bases their info from the one who lost: Hillary Clinton? “Racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, xenophobe, blah, blah, blah,” yeah, we get it.
