Now that the Oscars have become political, isn't it time to put it to rest?
The Oscars should be an internal celebration and not open to the public. The nominees and the winners are picked within the industry, and not from the audience. So, if you want the Oscar for the grandiose production than take out the movies and make it a fashion show.
Diversity is not a criteria of an award, performance is the process to warrant an award. The problem of who is picked and who wins an Oscars was never really based on any objective criteria.
But now fresh on the powerful Diversity stick called PC the minorities Demand and attack to get their way. Oscars are the latest casualty
The Oscars are run by a bunch of rich, white, old MEN who seem to hate PoC and women. Which is definitely problematic because most of film industry today is run on the backs of PoC and women, because there ARE more PoC and women in film and they're deliberately being left out and ignored as potential contenders (as strong actors) for awards they likely deserve.
Unless YOU, yourself, are one of these butthurt old white men on the Oscar's judging podium, why do you care so much about keeping it "internal" and telling people to butt out?
No, the American public must have that drug once a year. To many Americans, the Oscars are their chance to live vicariously as celebrities if only for one fleeting night. Americans love the Oscars like an addict loves his/her drugs. The Oscars are intoxicating, even addicting to many Americans.
Also, to many Americans, the Oscars are akin to a religious experience. They see their gods/goddesses at one of the most publicized events of the year, wondering what god/goddess will be elevated above the other gods/goddesses into stratospheric status. The Oscars made the grey, monotonously average lives of Americans somewhat worthwhile.
Lastly, every aspect of American life seems to be political. The entertainment business & its accompaniments are no exception. Since the late 1960s onwards, American entertainment has become more political in scope. It was the 1970s when Marlon Brando protested his Oscar. The entertainment business is/has always been rife with politics, political controversies, & political innuendos.
Actors whose groups have been demonized & even marginalized by the entertainment industry have always demand that they receive equal standing as actors who are deemed the ingroup or the majority. There will always be protests of one kind or another until all groups are represented equally & w/respect in the entertainment business.
That would work for me. The Oscars have been political, and now, thanks to Jada's whining, they will be even more so. Too bad. I used to be interested in which actors and movies were actually good due to plain ole talent. I won't be watching the farce this year. I can think of better things to do.
