The Oscars: The good (Chris Rock), the bad (ditto) and the ugly (guess who?)

Harry KhachatrianRebel Blogger

For months leading up to last night's big show, we had the second consecutive #OscarsSoWhite social media uproar over the lack of black Oscar nominees.

Accordingly, it was no surprise that the left’s racially charged chariot was present, and in full speed.

Needless to say, the event was highly politicized, partisan and glaring display of grandstanding from the Hollywood elites. It was not, however, all bad.

There were a few moments of honesty and truth amid the brazen display of race-baiting.

Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly from the Oscars.

Chris Rock’s opening monologue had some great points addressing the uproar over the lack of black nominees:

It’s the 88th Academy Awards, which means this whole no black nominees thing has happened at least 71 other times. O.K.?

You gotta figure that it happened in the 50s, in the 60s — you know, in the 60s, one of those years Sidney didn’t put out a movie. I’m sure there were no black nominees some of those years. Say ‘62 or ‘63, and black people did not protest.

Why? Because we had real things to protest at the time, you know? We had real things to protest; you know, we’re too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer.

This is actually a great point from the comedian. It underscores the fact that several decades back in American history, race relations really were not that great. Lynch mobs and racist groups like the KKK – I’m looking at you Democrats – targeted and attacked black people routinely.

Today, this does not happen. Racist individuals still exist, sure, but there is no institutional racism in America. Thus the uproar over “not enough black multi-millionaires being awarded golden status”. It's tragic, I know. 

Chris Rock also had a good jab at people like Jada Pinkett Smith who were boycotting the Oscars, stating that they were never invited in the first place.

Alright, for the most part, that was the good. Other parts however, were downright awful. In the same monologue, Chris Rock went on to say:

This year, in the In Memoriam package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies.

Leftist Hollywood continues to demonize law enforcement, even after Tarantino’s blockbuster film, The Hateful Eight, tanked due to Tarantino’s venomous anti-cop rhetoric while he marched with the radical Black Lives Matter protesters.

Chris Rock went to call Hollywood racist, stating:

Is Hollywood racist? You’re damn right Hollywood is racist. But it ain’t that racist that you’ve grown accustomed to.

Hollywood is sorority racist.

It’s like, “We like you Rhonda, but you’re not a Kappa.”

That’s how Hollywood is.

In fact, Hollywood is so racist, that it’s made Chris Rock $90 million. Truly the hallmark of racist institution, is it not?

Finally Chris Rock has his heartfelt appeal to Hollywood, suggesting that black movie stars need more opportunity:

What I’m trying to say is, you know, it’s not about boycotting anything. It’s just, we want opportunity. We want black actors to get the same opportunities as white actors. 

This somehow suggests that this already isn’t the case – which is completely false.

When casting decisions are made the only thing that matters is which actor or actress will help sell the most tickets. Hollywood executives and filmmakers don’t see black or white, the color that matters is green.

And now on to the ugly. Speaking of which, Sarah Silverman was a presenter last night. For all the parents out there who told their kids they could watch the Oscars with them, Sarah rode in on her progressive Pegasus to ruin the night.:

I guess I was a Bond girl, in that I had sexual intercourse with James Bond and never heard from him… I know he has a cell phone – he has four! He loves sleeping with women with heavy Jewish boobs.

Oh here’s something. James Bond – not a grower or a shower. I don’t want to say he’s terrible in bed… but he’s slept with 55 women in 24 movies and most of them tried to kill him afterwards.


And then, we got to see Leonardo DiCaprio finally win his Oscar. Though, I must say, I’m surprised he didn’t lose to Eddie Redmayne who played a transgender man on The Danish Girl.

So, Leo got up to give his speech, and of course it got political.

The self-aggrandizing quarter billion dollar movie star with a private jet, yacht and fleet of cars, told us how crucial it is to act on reversing climate change, and how he’s “seen climate change."

DiCaprio had in fact said to have “seen climate change” before, when he was in the Alberta, Canada.

You see, ee’d experienced a chinook – a commonplace weather phenomenon that brings warm winds to southern Alberta -- and called it  “scary climate change.”

Ending off the night, host Chris Rock stared into the camera and yelled “Black Lives Matter!”

Because there’s nothing more authentic than a room full of rich movie stars playing victim.

(Editor's note: It's almost as if Chris Rock doesn't remember shooting this sketch for his eponymous TV show, circa 2000 -- LANGUAGE WARNING...)

And Mr. Mann grasps the low hanging fruit to take a dig at Christianity. How daring. Now let’s hear you denounce the religion that condones stoning women among many other atrocities.

Is it just me, or does any one else find Chris Rock not all that funny? My brother thinks he’s hilarious. But to each their own I guess. Anyhow, we never watch any of the award shows. I couldn’t care less what they spout, wear, drink, eat or win. Just a bunch of superficial hullabaloo.

Christian videos. LOL.

I boycotted the Oscars for years (same with the brainless Olympics and other contests for the rich) – I had better things to do like reading, creative writing, Christian videos (it was SUNDAY). Why would anyone waste time on this dung? We all know DiCaprio is mentally challenged; we all know The Revenant had great cinematography but contained at least three major technical bloopers and totally unrealistic scenes (so not deserving of any rewards); and we don’t need filthy-mouthed racist Chris Rock to tell us what he told us, we already knew that, you nutcase. We all know that Hollywood is the planet’s capital for hypocrisy.

Next time, folks, get a good book, take a nature hike, shoot a windmill, send a check to a 3rd-world charity, and breathe the clean air of our great country. Don’t patronize this shit.

All lives matter, and i do not care if that offends you.

Yes, black lives matter. But all lives matter. It was just a couple nights ago a young, white cop from Virginia who was on her first night on duty and she was gunned down by a coloured man. All life matters.

Loved the Chris Rock video, though!

It’s really amazing to see how chocked the CBC is today after their The Revenant" didn’t win Best Picture. They have spent the last month shamelessly promoting the film on behalf of their team of Aboriginal agenda reporters because it happened to use a few Aboriginals in its production. Even Ms. Bennet is tweeting her disappointment today. (And the CBC website continues to censor by total prohibition of any comments on their Aboriginal site. Suppressing the truth is pretty well how they continue to do business in Trudeau’s brave new world.).

Anyone who could stomach watching this cluster frig of pampered hypocrites is a masochist or has nothing more important to do like clean the toilet.

My OMG moment came when I heard these deluded buttwipes, most of whom made their fortunes portraying the criminal misuse of firearms, wore gun control solidarity bracelets , surrounded by an impressive entourage of personal and private body guards packing all the nasty bang bangs they want to ban YOU from using to protect your life because you can’t afford personal body guards or secure gated communities/apartments.

Leo forgot to mention, the entire fleet of gas guzzling SUVs, he rented from 2 rental places in Calgary. At his insistence. Everything else was too small and yes they had electric cars. Until I see him riding a wooden bike, in his clothez made of hemp, I will only see him as a sell out hypocrite who should go back to 5th grade science.

All colours matter, not just black ones!
