I seldom watch the Oscars because I just don’t find the show very interesting and it’s WAY too long. What other industry or profession makes such a big deal to reward themselves for ‘doing their job’! I’m also not a movie-goer so there’s that.
I didn’t watch last night but was interested in knowing whether the loony liberals would give any awards to American Sniper. It was a movie that I did bother to see like millions of other patriots. I thought it was outstanding and Bradley Cooper’s performance was amazing!
Hollywood likes money so one would think that the record-setting $320 million receipts would have been rewarded. I heard this morning that the movie grossed more than the other 7 movies combined that were nominated for Best Picture.
However, Hollywood proved once again that they’re irrelevant by totally snubbing a non-lib movie, only awarding it one Oscar for “sound”. Let’s be honest … the movie was snubbed because it was about George W’s war and because Clint Eastwood did that very funny ‘chair routine’ at the Republican Convention.
There is some payback. Oscar viewership was a 6-year low with a 16% drop in viewers versus 2014. So Hollywood not only favors movies that people don’t want to watch, they also reward themselves at a show America doesn’t want to watch either.
