The post-Weinstein Golden Globes was an exercise in hypocrisy

And the award for ultimate hypocrisy goes to . . . the Hollywood class of 2018.

This year’s Golden Globes were meant to be a defiant, vibrant celebration of a post-Weinstein industry, an awards ceremony about so much more than meaningless awards. We were promised a reckoning, the leveling of a male-dominated industry that institutionalized the rape, abuse and harassment of women for decades.

Less than 5 minutes into Golden Globes, Seth Meyers bombs with lame Trump joke

NBC late night comedian and host of the 2018 Golden Globes Seth Meyers couldn’t get through five minutes of his opening monologue without making a joke about President Donald Trump, and it fell flat.

    Hollywood’s answer to politics, Oprah for president. Maybe Dr. Phil can be vice president. And the Church of Scientology can run the campaign.

    It’s funny how they were unable or unwilling to change the MC to a woman or better yet, a minority woman. All his material was anti Trump and he had to toss it out at the last minute.

    Some of you here at BCF might think that all the standing ovations and celebration were just a phoney, calculated move to distract from the horrific sex scandals in Hollywood.

    I have heard from reliable sources that Oprah has recently cured cancer and will announce the news when she officially runs as a candidate for President.

    I detect the whiff of hypocracy here. How come so many of “offended ladies” were pictured cuddling up to Harvey Weinstein? Surely you don’t schmooz with a man who has sexually abused you…or do you?

    It could be revealed that Hollywoodites support the Taliban or eat roast puppies, but they would still find a way to crow about their imagined virtue.

    How about the $380 sweater with the anti-poverty message, standing ovation for Tonya Harding, and all those armed guards?

    On the same day the Iranian sisterhood displayed their solidarity by wearing black in support of the Supreme Leader. Still pumping irony.

    Yeah, tell me more about aspiring sexual goddesses being harrassed when receiving advances from powerful film producers and Tinseltown leading machos.

    One thing I think the article got wrong, though it’s impossible to prove either way, is the part where she said they booed the jokes because they were sympathetic. My guess is they booed the jokes because they’d rather names like Spacey and Weinstein are just forgotten. Even when used in jest in their presence it is a poke at their guilty consciences and a reminder to the public about what allegedly hapened and their roles in it. The sooner they settle on the new power structure and let those names sink into the memory hole, the sooner they can resume moral grandstanding on other issues.
