My take on the awkward ending of Best Picture win of the Oscars last night… it wasn’t a mistake… they did a last minute switch to avoid being called “racist” again… Period???

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.

Will more celebs at the Oscars come out in support of Trump after the Joy Villa MAGA dress incident?

A lot of people are expecting a lot of Trump bashing at the Oscars and there probably will be but I’m thinking not all of it will be Trump bashing. After the Joy Villa MAGA dress incident at the Grammy’s, do you think more celebs will come out in support of Trump? Whether on the red carpet or during the Oscars show itself, I think a few more movie stars will come out in support of Trump. Who knows who may that be?

Mel Gibson himself seems to be a Trump supporter even though he hasn’t been vocal about it but Mel has been caught giving a dirty look when Meryl Streep was bashing Trump at the Golden Globes. Mel seemed to be disgusted with Meryl bashing Trump at the Globes. Maybe Mel will speak for his support of Trump at the Oscars this weekend, who knows?

We’ll have to wait and see what happens. I think it’ll be cool if more celebs would come out in support of Trump at the Oscars to piss off liberal Hollywood even more. That would be funny as hell!

Will Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” actually win Best Picture??? It would be amazing if Mel Gibson would get it but I doubt he would…

I know I’ve said I was gonna skip the Oscars and boycott earlier in the past but I think I changed my mind. I’m probably gonna end up watching it anyways this Sunday ’cause I’m pretty curious on who the “Best Picture” award is gonna go to. The three top choices that the “Best Picture” award could go to either: “Hacksaw Ridge”, “Moonlight” or “La La Land”. I haven’t seen all of the “Best Picture” nominations at the Oscars this year. The only movies I’ve seen out of the “Best Picture” nominees were “Arrival” and “Hell or High Water” but I haven’t seen the rest of them. “Arrival” and “Hell or High Water” are both excellent movies but I don’t think they’re gonna win at all. “Hacksaw Ridge” has a pretty good chance but I doubt that will win ’cause that film is too “patriotic” and it’s about “war” which will be too much for liberal Hollywood to handle. So my bet the “Best Picture” award will probably go to “Moonlight” or “La la Land”. The film “La La Land” is probably gonna get it.

If “Hacksaw Ridge” ends up getting “Best Picture” after all then that would be amazing and shocking. If “Hacksaw Ridge” wins, no doubt it will spark a backlash by liberals and the MSM ’cause of Mel Gibson. They would rip him to shreds if Mel Gibson won “Best Picture” for his film. Liberals would go, “Oh, how could the Academy reward a man who had a past with alcoholism and anti-semitism” blah blah blah blah. You get the deal. If “Hacksaw Ridge” wins, liberals would be outraged again.

The Oscars is gonna suck and no doubt, it will be full of liberal politics and Trump bashing for sure. I’m curious on who’s gonna get the Best Picture award.

I’m not even interested in the movie “La La Land” so I probably won’t see that one at all. Just doesn’t look interesting to me. Just another typical musical movie  nobody really cares about. I will get around to seeing “Hacksaw Ridge” though ’cause that movie does look really good. I love Mel Gibson movies. Yeah Mel has a lot of problems in real life but love him or hate him, you can’t deny that he is a talented man. He’s a good director and good actor too. He made some great films over the years especially “Braveheart”, “The Man Without a Face”, the Mad Max trilogy, the Lethal Weapon series, etc. I wish Mel Gibson good luck this weekend ’cause he’s gonna need it.

“Spotlight” was surprisingly a very good film, watched it on Netflix last night…

I remember last year when the Oscars was around, “Spotlight” won Best Picture last year. Another movie that stars Michael Keaton. I remember being disappointed that “Spotlight” won Best Picture over “The Revenant” movie. After finally seeing the movie “Spotlight” last night on Netflix, I’m now realizing that the Oscars giving “Spotlight” the Best Picture win was the right choice after all. “Spotlight” really was an excellent film. I loved it actually, I might even watch it again later tonight. After you get done watching the movie the first time and you want to give it a second viewing, that’s when you know the film is that damn good.

“Spotlight” is a great story based on a real life thing. The film has a great cast, the writing is surprisingly good and best of all, Michael Keaton kills it with his acting like usual. The cast of this movie is pretty killer: Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, etc.

If you have Netflix, this film is worth a look. I’m definitely gonna get my own copy of the film on BluRay, I think. Turned out to be a great film after all.

Sly posts photo of himself chatting with Mark Rylance at Oscars after-party…

Sly is trying to let the world know that he’s not upset over Oscar loss. Sly is acting like a total professional by showing others respect. As you can see Sly looks to be in a good mood and all smiles. Even Sly is happy for Mark Rylance. Whether you agree with Sly’s Oscar loss or not, you got to hand it to him ’cause he’s a pretty strong guy.

To be honest, I’m gonna have to check out “Bridge of Spies” movie just to see what was so special about Mark’s performance in that film.

I’m happy for Sly that he finally got recognized for his acting talent… that’s more rewarding than a freakin’ gold statue!

I remember back around the early 2000’s years Sly Stallone used to be one of the most hated actors on the planet. I’m not kidding either and I’ll never forget that. I’m sure you remember too. Back then, Sly got hated and criticized so much toward his acting talent. It was debated on whether or not Sly had any acting talent… people slammed him that he was only known for “Rocky” and “Rambo”, they say he was only talented at that. Anything outside of “Rocky” and “Rambo” Sly got trashed by movie fans and critics pretty harshly. Really Sly was bashed on a lot back then. That’s because back then, he was struggling in his career.

Today, everybody is finally realizing that the man has acting talent which to me is pretty amazing really. I always knew that one day Sly would start to get the respect that he deserves and he’s finally getting it.

Yeah, Sly may have made some pretty bad choices with his movies in the past but I think he’s finally smartened up and now he’s making some better choices with his films like “The Expendables”. “Grudge Match”, “Escape Plan”, “Bullet to the Head”, etc. Those are pretty good movies. He’s learned from his past mistakes and making smarter choices this time around.

So yeah, who cares about some award. Sly is already getting rewarded by getting recognized for his acting talent finally which he deserves more than an Oscar. So Sly is always a winner, in my book. I’m real happy for Sly that he’s finally getting all the love and respect that he deserves which he didn’t have much of that in the past. I’ll never forget the days when he was getting hated on. He finally silenced all of his doubters.

Sly is an interesting guy, though. He definitely knows how to stay strong and tough even through the setbacks in his career which to me makes him an amazing man. Now I understand why he played in movies like “Rocky” ’cause those movies helped inspire him to become strong and be the man that he is today.

The movie “Creed” is out on Blu Ray this week and I’m meaning to pick up a copy very soon!

Frank Stallone is upset at Sly’s Oscar loss and Sly himself responds…

Frank Stallone who is Sly’s brother is upset that Sly lost at the Oscars to Mark Rylance so Frank took to twitter to rant at the Academy and the media.

Here are some of Frank’s tweets:

I agree with Frank that it’s all Hollywood bullshit for sure. It’s pretty clear that the Academy don’t care what the people really want. I do agree with Frank that the Academy voters are terrible. The Oscars used to be good in the past but it’s getting worse and worse.

While Frank Stallone maybe upset, once again… Sly wants to let the world know that he isn’t upset at all. Sly says he is happy and life is good. He’s not letting his loss bring him down. Sly is used to losing ’cause he lost back in 1977.

Like I said, there’s always another film where Sly can get an Oscar… maybe for “Creed II” so a third time’s a charm?

Anyhow, awards are not important anyway. Sly should be focusing on his film career and that’s probably more rewarding than a gold statue.
