Oscars “Fix” Racism Issue and Award al-Qaeda’s “White Helmets” a Statue for Their Terrorism

Last year the Oscars were accused of racism. It wasn’t really fair because Hollywood has always been racist, last year was just highlighted because the divide and conquer effort across the country was fixated on race-baiting and the Oscars failed to nominate anyone of color for an award of substance.

In 2016, the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite popped up and folks like Dustin Hoffman made a point to let everyone know he was boycotting the ceremony. When was the last time Dustin was relevant at the Oscars? Anyone remember? He joined Chris Rock saying Hollywood is racist and always has been.

Well this year they fixed that. Kind of. Jimmy Kimmel made a joke about it in his opening monologue saying something like “Thank God for Trump because now the Oscars look less racist” or something like that. It went over like a lead balloon as you can probably imagine.

Moonlight, a movie about being a gay black man in the rough neighborhoods of Miami, came out of nowhere and won Best Picture beating out favorites Manchester By The Sea and La La Land. This year a number of black-themed films were released which were worthy of awards: Moonlight, Fences and Hidden Figures come to mind right off the bat.

But Moonlight was a big surprise taking the big prize at the Oscars. So much so, they weren’t announced as the winner on stage. That honor went to La La Land and those guys got up on stage and spoke for a couple minutes before the “mistake” was noticed and the Moonlight cast and crew were called up to get their second-hand trophy.

La La Land won:

  • Best Director
  • Best Actress
  • Best Original Music Score
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Production Design

Moonlight won:

  • Best Actor in a Supporting Role
  • Best Writing Adopted Screenplay

And of course.. Best Picture.

All I can say is that must have been one hell of a performance in a supporting role.

Both Best Supporting actor awards went to black actors as well. I have yet too see Fences or Moonlight so I cannot comment on their performances anymore than it seems like the Academy Awards seems to have “fixed” their little racism PR issue this year.

On another Oscar-related note, this year they decided to give an award for Best Documentary Short Subject to al-Qaeda’s PR team known as the White Helmets.

That’s a hell of a turn around, isn’t it? Talk about redemption. al-Qaeda goes from enemy of the free world and magical destroyer of 3 sky-scrappers with 2 planes in 2001 to winner of an Academy Award in 2017. I’m sorry, but that even beats the racism retooling switch we saw at the Oscars this year. That’s rebranding if I ever saw it.

Of course, it didn’t go without notice or comment on Twitter.

I don’t know what else we are supposed to expect from Hollywood. They’ve been run by Zionists, neocons and the CIA’s Mockingbirds forever.

Yet this year’s offering seems unusually transparent, doesn’t it?

Now I don’t know if Moonlight was a better film than La La Land or not. I’m not in a big rush to go see an urban jungle version of Brokeback Mountain any time soon.

But it does seem pretty odd timing that this film with it’s Best Supporting Actor beat out another with so many major awards the year after #OscarsSoWhite was a thing.

And of course, there is never a good reason to give an Academy Award to a bunch of PR guys working for the folks who supposedly blew up the Twin Towers and made a giant 767-200 disappear into the side of the Pentagon.

Maybe I’m old fashioned but that’s just the way I see it.

  1. I’ll never pay to see a movie again. An award to terrorist. That takes the wind out of any promo they will ever do again….. wouldn’t believe anything they say.
    I have a window pad that brings in movies and programs…. it’s free.
    I watched Mississippi Burning the other night….. great movie. old one but still worth watching.

  2. I was a bit disappointed the Witch King didn’t accept the award himself.

  3. We have seen blatant political correctness and obvious vote fixing at the Academy Awards for years — but this is a new low.

    Academy Awards presenters recite a list of nominees. Then they open a sealed envelope, inside of which is the name of only ONE nominee. How could two people look at a single piece of paper in their hands (THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT AWARD OF THE NIGHT) and get it “wrong”?

    Regarding “Moonlight,” I had never heard about it. Scott says it’s about gay blacks. The gay part makes me want to rush out and see it. (Not.) People who saw “Moonlight” say it’s mainly a couple of people sitting on a beach and talking about their confused sexuality. Deep stuff, aye?

    This scam will backfire. Average people will assume that all future movies about blacks are another “Moonlight,” and will not pay to see them. Nor will the Oscar for “best movie” generate any increase in box office revenues.

  4. Check out the video below. Is this obvious or WHAT???!!!

    • I dont get warren’s bumbling explanation for the mistake? He looked at it twice, then handed it to faye. She looked and announced la la land. He didnt say a thing. Then he explains thats why he looked so long and saw emma stone….which is not on the card at all 😂😂. This idiocracy just gets better by the day.

      • It’s amazing what people get away with, even as they are standing before an audience of millions.

        Still, I think this scam will have negative repercussions for Hollywood, and for the entertainment industry, and for political correctness in general.

  5. I guess its blatantly transparent now as we all awakening to their bullshit. They all clinging to a sinking ship, spouting anti trump rhetoric and hoping the rats will follow the paid piper. The good ship hollywood (la la land) has set sail and didnt win the golden trophy, Lol. Would like to know what La La Land is about….the irony of the title and the epic fail does not elude

      This original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

      Does that enlighten you, Syd? Make you want to rush right out to the theatre?

  6. «Moonlight» … «an urban jungle version of Brokeback Mountain». Brilliant, because that’s what it is.
    Once again, pathetic nominees, films and decadent so called actors with plastic smiles. I cannot stand these new Hollywood productions, so I keep close to the old ones.
    I’ve been watching «The Guns of Navarone». Fortunately, no white helmets there.

  7. The fake news outlets (LA Times, New York Times, etc) are lying about the Academy Awards scam. They note that all the awards envelopes are handled by two people from PricewaterhouseCoopers, namely Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz. (Why does a British firm handle this?) Anyway their “theory” (the L.A. Times’ word) is that these two people “accidentally” gave out the wrong envelope. When Brian Cullinan gave Warren Beatty a sealed envelope that was marked “Best Picture,” Cullinan should have instead given Beatty a different (and presumably unmarked) envelope that had “Moonlight” inside. Or something like that. It’s bullshit, and is deliberately unintelligible. All we know for sure is that “La La Land” was for months considered a shoe-in, but at the last minute the award was given to an obscure movie about queer black drug dealers because…Hollywood. We may never know what really happened, or who issued the order to suddenly switch the award.

    • It seems like something fixed at the last minute. Why couldn’t Warren Beaty read the name of the winner? Strange.

  9. All i know is that none of this is “accidental”. I can only guess the psychological reasonings behind this ‘mistake’ but it’s apparent it was deliberate. It’s either an inside joke to those who know or it’s programming or perhaps both.

    If La La Land is a euphemism for a dream like state or trance, ie.. someone who’s crazy has gone off to la la land and Moonlight is reflected light, not original or a copy of the original, then maybe by giving the award to those in la la land (crazy people… ie. us) then taking it away for a fake (reflected sunlight) is a revelation of just their programming. We were gonna go with the idea that everyone just check out and go crazy but we decided at the last minute that portraying black gay lifestyle is better. Congratulation black druggie perverts… you’re the winner.

  10. I find this quote from a NYTimes article extremely enlightening (apparently that’s my word for the day):

    At the very least, you would think the academy, which has made real if confusing strides toward inclusion, would understand that its well-intended efforts seem a little hollow when a straight, white male host jokes about no one’s seeing a movie from a black director about gay black men. Optics, people, optics!

  11. File under “YCMTSU – You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”. The folder is getting fatter by the day …
    It’s all so exceptional! But at least the losers didn’t have to practice their acceptance speeches for nothing. Now that’s true democracy in action!

  12. And an adoring public can’t get enough.
