Hollywood Scandal!

A “scandal” is rocking the very foundations of the Oscar awards!  “Sources” say that a questionable marketing and influencing effort may have improperly boosted the nomination of a white actress, Andrea Riseborough.  And that might be responsible for two black actresses; Danielle Deadwyler and Viola Davis not being nominated!

Choking down feelings of anger, hatred and outrage I manage to shout:

WHO?

Really, who the hell are any of these people and why would anyone care at all whether they might win the Oscar for best actress?

First of all, I have a zero chance of ever seeing any movie any of them might be in.  That’s a guarantee.

Second of all, even if one of the black actresses is exchanged for the white actress and even wins the Oscar I will still never see any picture she might ever be in.

Third and last of all, even people who pretend to like these movies and go to see them, are bored and dread going to see them.  They have to claim to like them to impress people they think are important or smart.  But these motion pictures are propaganda exercises that mostly allow Hollywood to virtue signal about whatever the cause du jour happens to be.

Now if they were giving out an Oscar for Creepiest Hollywood Denizen and it was a contest between Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen and Roman Polansky now I’m all ears.

This facade of celebrities carrying a mantle of moral authority is frankly, odd. Why society believes that entertainers and professional athletes have insight and wisdom on subjects they know nothing about is one of life’s great mysteries. They certainly do not show it by their personal actions.

This story about Beyonce and a slew of other actors and reality stars in Dubai is a great example:

Oscars, Golden Globe, Emmies, any and all the others. Who cares, I haven’t noticed or watched any of them in this century and damn few in the last.

It would be literally impossible for me to care less.
