SURPRISE: Oscars Already Being LAMPOONED by Poster All Over Hollywood
The Oscars are tonight, and as with most Leftist nonsense, they called for people to log their protests of President Trump at the event.
However, things may have backfired.
As Unsavory Agents wrote,
I hardly ever go to movies anymore and it there’s ever a movie I really want to see I’ll just wait for it to show up in (sic) ReBox. I’ll admit the reasons I do this are a bit petty. It’s my own little way to rebel by putting as little money possible into the big liberal Hollywood machine. Out of touch actors who rail against my political beliefs drove me to it.
Shia LaBeouf, Bryan Cranston, Cher, Madonna, Ashley Judd, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck … I could go on all day, have shot their mouths off long enough calling people like myself every vile name in the book, again and again, and again, and again. I used to really love movies and the occasional tv show but not so much these days. I “discount” what goes on in them these days more than ever.
I’m sure many people are wondering if anyone is going to out Meryl Streep her Golden Globe anti-Trump tirade on Sunday night at the Oscars.
Recently a Hollywood Reporter pole revealed 6 out of 10 Americans can’t even name one Best Picture Nominee.
He went on to put posters on RedBox kiosks to showcase what he believes the movies are worth. Personally, I think he’s giving them too much credit.

The Oscars, ergo actors want to be relevant, politically.
But when someone has just won a major acting award for his performance in a movie that had nothing to do with climate change, and he uses his acceptance speech as an opportunity to offer fans around the world a righteous didactic tidbit about climate change…well, let’s be clear that this sort of thing is one of the reasons why Donald Trump was elected. The perception — right or wrong — that people in the entertainment industry are standing on a pedestal telling the rest of us what to think has become part of the problem, not the solution.
So given that track record, why am I suggesting that four weeks from now, it would be a great thing, and maybe even an important thing, if Oscar night became a finely orchestrated pageant of political passion? Well, clearly, the stakes are higher now. Given the presidential actions of the last week alone, we suddenly seem to be living in an America where every dimension of our political process, our freedom, our very perception of reality is up for grabs. My point, though, isn’t simply about the urgency of the moment, as transcendent as that is. My point is about the role that members of the entertainment industry now have the rightful place to play in America, and about the opportunity they have to create a paradigm shift in that role — to upend the mythology of it.
You can’t say the same about the Oscars. In an effort to shade the pageantry with a modicum of perspective, we’ll be taking a look at the Academy’s playbook of fuck-uppery. This is a gentle reminder to you, the discerning reader, that if you treat the Oscars as some sort of authority on what makes a film great, you’re doing it wrong.
No sense rehashing the bad movie choices by “the academy.” After all, “the academy” implies academia, ergo brilliance when it comes to selecting movies. In other words, what do we know.
