Here's a good companion read:

No wonder. Who wants to listen to a bunch of virtue signaling, self-aggrandizing twats all night.

I hear Brad Pitt and Joaqun Phoenix were competing for woke points in their acceptance speeches. A simple thank you would have sufficed. Songs were interrupted for self-congratulation on diversity hires - that sort of thing.

Oh and then there was this:

Obama’s Oscar-Winning ‘American Factory’ Omits His Own Role in Ohio Factory’s Closing


Quote:
The former president and First Lady Michelle Obama are celebrating the Oscar win for their new production company, Higher Ground, which saw American Factory win Best Documentary Feature on Sunday evening.

The film follows the travails of a shuttered General Motors factory in Ohio that is re-opened by Chinese investors, who save American jobs but encounter cultural and economic clashes with American workers.

But as Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the former mayor of nearby Dayton, Ohio, wrote last year, the movie leaves out President Obama’s own role in making life worse for the GM workers who lost their jobs.

Obama’s auto bailout, he recalled, helped force the plant’s closure and made it harder for the workers to find new jobs because his administration was dealing political favors to its favored union allies — and they were in the “wrong” union...

You just have to laugh at these chuckle-heads sometimes, because what's the alternative?

I don't bother with award shows at all. Why do I want to watch rich people giving awards to other rich people for doing their jobs? Add to the fact that most of the 'winners' make these elaborate speeches about virtue signalling and other nonsense, and you have something that I will never give a damn about.

I have a hard time raising the energy to even watch the films these people appear in - exception: Joker, for being one of the best superhero/villain movies ever made. As such I find it impossible to have enough strength to watch the event where they congratulate each other on how terrific they are. That ceremony needed Ricky Gervais to poke holes in all the stuffed shirts far more than the Golden Globes did.

I can't even remember the last time I watched any award show. It just does not interest me at all.

I don't give a tinker's dam about award shows, or the SuperBowl, or the State of the Fucking Union.
I just get annoyed when ALL the channels fuck up ALL of the programming for an entire week because of them.

1917 was damn good movie too, though apart from cinematography, it went home empty handed.

The Oscars have always been droll and stuffy because that's what Hollywood wants. That's why it's nigh impossible to find a host; because anytime a host was picked to be "edgy" (Seth McFarlane, Jon Stewart, David Letterman) they weren't liked because they made jokes at Hollywood's expense.

Like you said, That's what the Golden Globes are for; to have a more laid back, tawdry affair.

Right? Between the Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Super Bowl and the NFL playoffs, Bob's Burgers hasn't been on for a month and I'm missing it badly.

They are both puppets. Do not expect much from them beyond reading a script.

Their job is to pre-program the public for insanity and to push social engineering with bullshit.

Ditto with Walking Dead being on break because I'm really jonesing to once again see almost every member of the main cast who aren't named Negan to once again do the most retarded thing possible that they can.
