There are really two kinds of movies: Movies produced to entertain and make money, and movies produced for "Oscar Bait”.
Oscar bait movies almost always lose millions but allow the studio to virtue signal and push any agenda. The Green Book checks every progressive box and was a clear frontrunner in this year’s Academy Awards race.
Not because the movie was good, of course, but because the movie is about racist white people, a talented oppressed homosexual black man, and a dumb failed mobster who drives around learning how racist people are.
Who doesn't want to see that?!
Well, things were going good until co-star Viggo Mortensen was accused of racism after saying the n-word while talking about how racist the South was. That's right: Using the word to condemn those who used it to demean people also means somehow, someway, Viggo is also racist.
