Hollywood thinks they are untouchable. Whatever they do, they can get away with it. Everything they say is right, and we should follow their example.
Remember George Clooney’s smug speech?
“I would say that you know we are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while. I think it’s probably a good thing. We’re the ones who talked about AIDS when it was just being whispered. And we talked about civil rights when it wasn’t really popular and we you know we bring up subjects. We were the ones this Academy this group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I’m proud to be a part of this Academy. Proud to be a part as a community and proud to be out of touch.”
This was back in 2006. Of course, Clooney is proud to be a part of the Hollywood community. It is the community that was friends with Jeffery Epstein. His career, along with Matt Damon’s, was boosted by scumbags like Harvey Weinstein. Both heard rumors and knew Weinstein was a bully but ignored it.
We remember this speech because “South Park” made fun of it, even stating he takes credit for the civil rights movement. Inadvertently he does this by saying, “this group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters.”
Speaking of Hattie McDaniel, Hollywood was very much with the times in 1939. Hattie McDaniel won an Oscar for her role as Mammy in “Gone with the Wind.” She couldn’t go to the premiere in Atlanta because it was at a whites-only theater. In Los Angeles, for the Oscars ceremony, she sat at a segregated table at the side of the room. Where is the “out of touch” Hollywood Clooney?
Today, Hollywood refuses to accept that going woke means going broke. It is our fault that “Bros” isn’t doing great at the box office. It is our fault that Oscar’s viewership is at an all-time low, and no slaps to the face will fix that.
Will Smith, a beloved actor of millennials, ruined his reputation by going up to the stage and slapping Chris Rock for a joke. His new movie, “Emancipation,” may not save him, despite having all the right ingredients to fast-track an Oscar win.
It is most likely due to Hollywood wanting to save face and an attempt to save its dying reputation. It is unlikely that Oscar voters honestly think that Will Smith should be snubbed an Oscar nomination.
Truth Tent has quoted some Oscar voters; one member said:
“No chance I would vote for him.”
In other Hollywood news, Alec Baldwin’s team of lawyers was able to pay off the Hutchins.
Alec Baldwin and Rust Productions have reached a settlement with the estate of slain cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Alec said.
“We are pleased to announce today the settlement of the civil case filed on behalf of the family of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna’s son. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation.”
The lawsuit reached an undisclosed settlement. The Maga conservatives article quotes the family not wanting to blame anybody and believing it was an accident. Anyone with a brain familiar with the mafia-likeliness of Hollywood knows that they were paid off to say that.
The next step for Baldwin is to pay off the law enforcement of New Mexico.
The final police report on the shooting near Santa Fe is expected this month, at which time prosecutors will file criminal charges if warranted, district attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies told the state’s finance board.
On Wednesday afternoon, her office added that the proposed settlement had no impact on her eventual decision whether to file criminal charges in the case.
“If the facts and evidence warrant criminal charges under New Mexico law then charges will be brought. No one is above the law,” a statement issued on behalf of Carmack-Altwies said.
The movie will resume filming in January, and Matthew Hutchins, Halyna’s widower, will be an executive producer and receive a portion of the profits, the lawyer’s statement on Wednesday added.
“Halyna’s widower will be an executive producer and receive a portion of the profits” sounds like a very good payoff. Will there be an opening for co-director and profit gain for District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies as well?
