Quite honestly, this is the best idea Vox has EVER come up with! Granted, it’s a low bar to clear, but still!
According to this, Vox.com has put forth the BRILLIANT idea that, to protest President Trump’s temporary immigration ban, Hollywood should cancel the Oscars because Hollywood was built up by immigrants (who came into the country legally and NOT from countries where radical Islamic terrorism was A Thing, but details don’t matter to Vox) –
President Donald Trump’s new immigration order — the one many have labeled a “Muslim ban” because it temporarily bars entry to the US for natives of seven Muslim-majority countries — stops people associated with various Oscar-nominated films from attending the 2017 Academy Awards. That’s just one reason the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should cancel its annual ceremony and instead announce the winners via press release.
You mean you want to cancel Hollywood’s yearly self-pleasuring puke-fest, just to make a stupid political point that doesn’t actually need to be made? We won’t get to watch a bunch of rich elites wearing clothes that cost more than my car applaud each other for being insufferable douchebags for another year? I won’t have to endure people going bonkers for that dumb “La La Land” movie anymore?
WHERE DO I SIGN THE PETITION?!
I mean, it’s not like I was going to watch it anyway. In fact, many Americans already “cancel” the Oscars each year, just by choosing to do something else that evening. It’s not like any of us have seen the movies that have been nominated (other than the movies nominated for technical awards). Only film students who think that Hollywood has anything worthwhile to say anymore tune in. And even they have to be sick of the same old garbage being said year after year.
I'll second that motion... cancel the Oscars and take it up one level... cancel Holly Wood and throw in Mexifornia for good measure.
I've said it several times, since I RARELY pay to see a movie anymore, that if the Hollybonk crowd depended on me for a living, there are not enough highway overpasses and bridges for them to live under!! Even the trolls don't want them!!
Never happen. Who, but lefties watch it anyway? I've not watched one in my life.
Good ! Who Cares !! no loss for me. never did watch .The self grandstanding s.o.b.s, pat each other on each others backs.
Like we give a crap about their asinine Oscars.
I agree, where do I sign to cancel the Oscars?
Great idea...do it. We're not going to watch anyway so we won't miss anything.
What is the oscars?
