Yep, like most people I skipped the Oscars last night just like I did last year. It’s a shame ’cause I used to enjoy the Oscars, but they seem to be getting worse each year. Yeah, The Oscars going political is a major problem, but that’s not the only problem with the Oscars. They have more problems like their nominations are always terrible every year and this year is the worst with their nominations! The only films I saw out of the nominations for “Best Picture” this year were: “Dunkirk”, “Get Out” and “Lady Bird”. The rest of ’em I haven’t even seen. The only other movie I want to see out of the Best Picture nominations is the film “Darkest Hour”. That’s another film that interests me and I want to see it. I’m planning to pick up the BluRay for “Darkest Hour” when I hit Best Buy this week.
With that being said, the Oscars did 4 things right when giving away awards last night. I was happy when the Oscars gave Gary Oldman his first award. Surprisingly enough, Gary Oldman never won an Oscar before until now. That man is a very talented actor. He’s one of the best and I’m glad he finally got an Oscar. That was long over due. Jordan Peele winning the Oscar for “Best Original ScreenPlay” on the “Get Out” movie was the right move ’cause the writing for that movie was really good. “Get Out” was a really good movie except the only thing I didn’t like about it was all the Obama worship but what do you expect from liberal Hollywood, hey? Other than that, “Get Out” was a great psychological horror film. I actually liked it a lot and watched it a couple of times. The other two things the Academy got right was giving awards to Blade Runner: 2049 for “Best Cinematography” and “Best Visual Effects”. These were the things that the Oscars got right last night, but all the other awards given last night were terrible.
It doesn’t surprise me that the TV ratings for this year’s Oscars are at an all time low. The Oscars were down 16% from last year’s Oscars. The Oscars get worse every year ’cause of the liberal propaganda and bad shows. Bad nomination choices is another factor of why the ratings are so low. Again, I used to love the Oscars, but Hollywood is going downhill pretty fast. It’s a shame ’cause I am a huge movie buff as you all know. I love watching movies ’cause it’s one of my favorite hobbies.
I’m glad I didn’t watch last night. I too had no interest in Hollywood lecturing us how much they despise Trump and ramming their liberal propaganda down our throats. I’m fed up with all that too. When will they learn that politics and entertainment don’t mix? Instead, I watched the movie “Casino” w/ Robert De Niro on Netflix which was even better. Fuck the Oscars. I’m completely done with award shows. I don’t watch any of them anymore.
