So I actually watched the Oscars last night. Yes, I watched the whole show. I’m going to give a brief review of the show in a bit but first I want to talk about the awkward “Best Picture” win from last night.
So here we go…I don’t know if you caught this or not but if you watch the video above very carefully, as the film crew of “La La Land” started to give their acceptance speeches… you can see an Oscars producer with a headset on walk in the middle of the crowd. If you watch carefully you can see the guy with the headset on, switching envelopes with the “La La Land” director, Damien Chazelle. As the Oscars producer switches envelopes with Damien, you can tell that Damien knew what was going on ’cause he wasn’t looking down as envelopes was being switched. Damien was pretending that none of this was happening. Seems to me that the cast and crew already knew what was going on ahead of time ’cause they had worried looks on their faces when the Oscar producers showed up on stage with another envelope.
The producer of “La La Land” Jordan Horowitz looks absolutely pissed and upset when he kept saying “This is not a joke, Moonlight wins Best Picture”… then he took the envelope from Warren Beatty and held it up for everyone to see.
Warren Beatty blamed himself for the mistake and tried to admit that he read it wrong but it wasn’t a mistake, in my opinion. The whole thing definitely seemed “orchestrated”. I think “La La Land” was originally going to win “Best Picture”, that was the plan but the Oscar producers did a last minute switch so they can avoid getting called “racist”. Doing a last minute switch so they won’t upset the race baiters and the black community. Everybody’s claiming it was a “mistake” but it definitely wasn’t. It’s either the Oscars producers was trying to avoid upsetting the race baiters or the race baiters complained to the Academy when they heard that “La La Land” was going to win. That’s what I think what happened. If “La La Land” won Best Picture instead of “Moonlight”, the Academy would have gotten another backlash so they did a last minute switch to save themselves.
Anyway, on with the Oscars show itself…. a brief review of it, I was trying to figure out if I was watching the BET Awards or the Oscars. Last night was the black community’s night for sure. Mostly black people won awards and presented awards like I’ve been predicting for a while. I knew the blacks were going to win most everything. Hope you’re happy, Al Sharpton and Barack Obama.
I’m not even interested in seeing “La La Land” and “Moonlight” anyways. Both movies look terrible, in my opinion so I’ll probably avoid seeing those.
The only good thing that I actually liked about the Oscars was Sting giving a tribute to journalist James Foley who was killed by Isis. I was surprised that when Dev Petel was introducing Sting to sing the song, he used “Isis” instead of “Isil”. Liberals don’t like to use the name ISIS when it comes to talking about that terrorist group. I was surprised they did a tribute to James Foley which was more of a “conservative” view than liberal. So Sting might be conservative and Trump supporter? Who knows. That was a great performance though.
While they did an okay job with the “In Memoriam” segment they did snub a few: Gary Shandling, Richard Hatch and Miguel Ferrer. They deserved to be in there too but I didn’t see them. A shame.
Of course, most of the Oscars was way too political. The opening Jimmy Kimmel speech was nothing but Trump bashing. Most of the award presenters and award winners bashed the hell out of Trump too.
Most of the Oscars was celebrities crying about “diversity” and shit like that… claiming how they’re so divided under Trump. Man, I tell ya’, yeah we’re a divided nation as a country but if you think it’s Trump’s fault and not Obama’s then you’re definitely out of touch. It’s interesting how no one complained about how divided we are under Obama as president but now everybody is talking about it under Trump. Amazing how “one-sided” people are with their opinions.
Yeah, the Oscars last night was terrible but I only watched it for laughs and that’s it.
