Last night’s Oscars was the biggest gathering of smug, self-important asses in living memory

The American comic Toby Muresianu put it best: last night’s Oscars felt like ‘three hours of being told to eat your vegetables’. If there has ever been a more grating gathering of smug, self-important asses keen to educate the TV-watching blob about Serious Stuff, then I’m struggling to remember it. Hollywood has clearly forgotten what its job is: to make us squeal and swoon, not raise our awareness about rape and paedophilia and the heat death of the planet and all the other misanthropic bilge the beautiful people spouted last night.

  • George C. Scott was right to boycott the Oscars.

    Would these arrogant @$$holes still parade around in front of the camera if no major network would cover that five-hour waste of time?

    Great review. It was a nauseating display of lefties that play make believe for a living.

    Way back in Hollywood’s golden age, a reporter asked Harry Cohn, boss of Columbia Pictures, if his movies had a message. “If I want to send a message,” he replied, “I’d call up Western Union.”

    If Hollywood acted like a business (which it is) rather than a bunch of pretentious know-it-alls who look down on us “peasants” they would be more tolerable…

  • “smug, self-important asses” – I never watch the Oscars or any other such ceremonies.

      I watched approx. 15 mins. of it around 2006 and that was the first time since the early 1990s. Didn’t enjoy it then and it seems to have degenerated even more given this article.

    I have not seen the Leo di Cap movie, but if it is anything like previous outings, Leo will be playing…well Leo. One dimensional.

    I hardly watch movies anymore I hope they eventually go broke.

    I have come to loathe Hollywood. I can’t remember the last time I watched an entire feature length Hollywood movie without hitting the fast-forward button.

    Great post Blaze. Some good news:CNN reported this morning (Tuesday morning) that this year’s Oscars had the lowest TV audience rating snce 2008 — and suffered a 6 percent decline from last year. Like other people on this thread I never watch the Oscars. But just watching the news coverage the next morning was enough to make one vomit. Clearly Americans don’t want to watch stale-bread political-correctness.

      This contributor from the UK doesn’t want to watch either!

    The only thing that drew me to the Oscars was Charlotte Rampling’s nomination for ’45’.

    But she was nowhere to be seen. There seemed to be a media blackout. Was she de facto banished because of her comments about anti-white racism?

    Brava for posting this bang on article.

    So “Lady” Gargle says “One in five women will be raped before they [finish] college”.
    That also means that 4 out of 5 will not.
