First, it was the Gone Girl fiasco.
Women's Groups cried foul that Hollywood might reward a movie where the baddie is a female.
In turn, it caused the spineless, sackless Boys (TPTB) to dump the movie from contention.
Secondly, there was the crying about the lack of racial diversity.
I find it odd there is an implication racial quotas are needed for the Academy Awards.
Or are is message only movies about/for minorities are worthy?
Somehow, everyone has forgotten last year's BP was 12 Years a Slave.
Lastly, there was Sean Penn's joke while announcing BP last night.
"Who gave this S.O.B his green card?"
Penn and Iñárritu have been friends for a very long time and worked together on 21 Grams.
Anyone who knows anything about Penn knows he is the exact opposite of a racist.
This stupidity has gotten completely out of hand and has ruined it for me.
I won't be taking the time next year to put a thread like this together.
It's no longer fun.
