SJW’s ruin everything.

#OscarsLessWhite? Diversity comes to Academy Awards

Is it time for a new hashtag?

This year’s Oscar nominations have thrust the conversation about diversity back into the limelight, but this time in a more positive context.

Seven actors of color were nominated Tuesday — Denzel Washington and Viola Davis for “Fences,” Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris for “Moonlight,” Ruth Negga for “Loving,” Dev Patel for “Lion” and Octavia Spencer for “Hidden Figures.”

Davis is now a three-time Oscar nominee, a first for an African American woman.

“Moonlight’s” Barry Jenkins also made history as the first African American to score nominations for best director, best picture and best adapted screenplay in the same year. That film’s co-editor, Joi McMillon, also became the first African American to earn a nomination for achievement in film editing.

Ava DuVernay, who in 2015 lost out on the opportunity to become the first black woman nominated for a directing Oscar for “Selma,” snagged a best documentary feature nomination this year for “13th.”

It all led BET to tweet “Oscars are not so white this year. Look at all this #BlackExcellence recognized in the Oscar nominations.”


So what happens if none of the black nominees wins? What about Asians, Hispanics, and other minorities?

I don’t care about color. My favorite movie from last year (Suicide Squad) had two black actors in lead roles. I’m not saying it was Oscar-worthy, but it was a damn good movie. What I don’t like is the way everything has to be racialized.

I have a dream where actors are judged by the quality of their performances and not by the color of their skin.

  1. But it’s all squirrels. The hacks covering Trump are as lazy as they are partisan, so feeding them clickbait such as manufactured controversies over inaugural crowds is a guaranteed way of keeping them occupied while things of real substance are done.

    If that wasn’t obvious over the weekend it surely had to be by Monday, when Trump resuscitated one of his chestnuts from the days following the election. He claimed that were it not for 3-5 million illegal aliens the Democrats trucked to the polls in California and elsewhere he would have won the popular vote in November as well as the Electoral College vote, and the claim sent the Democratic media into convulsions of outrage over how “baseless” and “without evidence” Trump’s charge of voter fraud might be.

    And while the ink-stained curs were scampering after squirrels on the White House lawn, Trump was inside signing executive orders of such magnitude as to thoroughly dismantle the Obama legacy.

    Federal agencies must now “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” any portions of Obamacare creating financial burden on states, individuals or healthcare providers — which essentially guts Obama’s signature legislative achievement.

    The Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines will now be built.

    The federal government will no longer fund abortions performed in foreign countries.

    America is withdrawing from the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty.

    U.S. airstrikes severely wounded ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and turned several of his advisers into scrambled egg while trapping ISIS forces on what is for them the wrong side of the Euphrates River in Mosul, in a rapid escalation of the fight against the jihadist network.

    Ajit Pai, the foremost critic of Net Neutrality at the FCC, is its new chairman, meaning the free market now has a friendly majority in that body again.

    Trump froze all federal government hiring “except for the military.”

    Trump essentially shut down the EPA pending Scott Pruitt’s confirmation. He also muzzled the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    There is no longer any content in Spanish on the White House’s website.

    The Centers For Disease Control’s planned Climate and Health Summit will not be happening.

    And on, and on.

    Any one of these actions would be regarded as a major policy shift on its own. Taken in concert, they represent a sea change in American government in half a week of Trump’s tenure. And yet while the media is in hysterics over the opening salvos of the new administration, it’s crowd sizes and illegal Mexicans in the polling booths that are occupying their time.

    Here’s hoping Trump continues with the parade of squirrels, and let’s hope the media keeps chasing them. At this rate, he’ll have the country well on its way to recovery from the Obama malaise, and the enemies in the newsrooms will have hardly noticed his actual work.

    I’m not much of a movie goer, but I did see Viola Davis in ‘Doubt’ and ‘Far From Heaven’. I was very impressed with her acting. I saw those movies years ago and I still remember how great she was in her roles.

    I hope she wins.

    • Viola Davis is one of the lead actors in Suicide Squad.

      • elliesmom says:

        I really liked Viola Davis in “The Help”, but my SJW friends said liking that movie and the book that spawned it made me a racist. So I stopped watching her movies and TV show because I might like them. It’s easier than filtering what I watch through the SJW filter.

    Quick question: I sliced open a cantelope and it was very juicy, dripped all over. It tasted good. That’s ok, right?

    Usually the cantelopes I get are rather dry inside.

    • Somebody says:

      Boom, shots fired, LOL!

      I don’t know if there was enough voter fraud to change the popular vote, but I do know that there is voter fraud. I’m glad he mentioned people voting in multiple states as well as illegals voting. Both sides have people that vote in multiple states. The R’s have rich people that own multiple homes and feel entitled to multiple votes, there are wealthy D’s that do the same. The democrats, however, also bus people in. I’m not aware of any stories where republicans have done that. I know for a fact in 2008 there were buses from my area that carried college students to Ohio. They early voted in Florida and then did same day registration in Ohio and voted there.

      We need honest reform with our voting system. Voter ID is not racist, it’s practical and logical. We need to make sure people are not registered in multiple states and personally I think we need to do away with same day registration. If by chance we keep same day registration, I think those should be provisional ballots until checks are made to ensure said voters are legitimate residents of the state and are not also registered in another state.

      This is the 21st century we should be able to get a handle on voting for goodness sakes. It’s not like we have to send pony express across the country to check and validate these things.

    • Lulu says:

      And they scamper off trying to hide shit. LOL. The public is already convince they vote illegally. Talking about it, the media denying, all reinforce it in the public
      s mind. He doesn’t intend to investigate because they are mostly going to self-deport before 2020. AND the illegals are going to hide from the census takers since the brilliant Dreamers gave over all their info so they could be deported more conveniently. So between self-deports and hiders there will be fewer to count for federal “grants”, money for bureaucracies, and the all important re-districting. High illegal alien population centers will loose reps in both Congress and state leges thus power and giving themselves more and more money. Gravy train is derailing.

    • Constance says:

      Good! it is about time. Citizens first!

    • Somebody says:

      I’m a bit concerned about the SCOTUS pick. I have a feeling whoever it is will be Borked. The dems are out for blood and they have sway with a SCOTUS pick, it still requires 60 votes. Time will tell I suppose.

      • Lulu says:

        Well Schumer lying about the CIA guy vote probably got the nuclear option to be used by Repub’s because their last give a shit got used. All the Dems can do is delay and piss them off more. Dems are now the party of ass dragging and NO. Not the smartest re-election plan.

      • Constance says:

        Well I would guess Trump won’t pick a white male for the Supreme Court. That should confuse the Dems.

        • Somebody says:

          The three that are supposedly at the top of the list are all white males. There are some women on his overall list, but I haven’t heard them mentioned as being considered at this point.

        • Lulu says:

          I think he will pick the honkiest honky of all time. Maybe even a redhead. This is Look! Squirrel! while he builds a big ass wall and starts firing civil “servants”. Since the Dems and media can only have one thought in their head at a time per month they are going to be overwhelmed like yesterday. And the photo showing no crowds at the inauguration? It has been “blown up” and embiggened and the Smithsonian clock tower shows it was taken at 1:15 or an hour after the swearing in and speech. Liars. Dumbasses.

    • votermom says:

      That’s a whole week away. What a slacker! LOL

      Seriously, I love his breakneck pace. What a great change from Sir Golfs-a-Lot.

      • Constance says:

        Yeah! That would be a great smart assed question, “you own multiple golf courses don’t you ever play golf?”

      • Anthony says:

        I’ve been lmao for the past three days. Its like Trump said “Screw the shells – its buckshot all the way!”

        Morning Joe compared it to a “firehose of executive orders and campaign promise fulfillments, and nobody knows what to attack first”

        Great strategy! #WINNING

  5. Venus says:

    “What happens if none of the black nominees wins?”

    Won’t happen — Viola Davis will win. She’s a good actress and “deserves” it but also she’ll win because the Academy doesn’t want to be faced with the aftermath of none of the black nominees winning.

    If the Oscars was something more than a popularity contest that might offend me, but because it is nothing more than that mixed with Hollywood egos sucking each other’s dicks, it doesn’t.

      It’s starting to look like DC again. No one was protesting for the Error Of O . When I had offices near the WH there were groups there every day protesting something or other. The other mainstay was Lafayette Park. Regan/Poppy Bush/Clinton/W and of course I recall seeing the news with LBJ/ Nixon and Carter with protesters 7/24/365.

    • lateblum says:

      Trish Regan’s guest just said that Trump has accomplished more in 4 days as POTUS than the last 4 administrative terms. Then said recent presidents have been lazy and easy to accept minimum improvements. They are awaiting comments from President Trump at Homeland Security. FIrst time I’ve said “President Trump”. It felt good. 🙂

    Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover

    All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

    Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

      I respectfully disagree with Milo. It’s one thing to mock and /or torment the rich and famous grownups. But quite another when you target a child – any child. If Kate Whatshername wants to go after public personalities, that’s one thing. It’s quite another going after the target’s children. Remember when a writer from the WaPo (I think) commented on the clothing the obama girls were wearing? She was fired. That’s a far cry from being suspended for using bad judgment – especially when it reflects poorly on the employer. People have been let go for far less.

      Don’t worry Milo, she was going to be back by Monday, anyway. Essentially, she got a long weekend with pay.
