Reality check: The Oscars ignored Hollywood's long history of diversity

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel touted Black Panther as the first superhero with an African-American star.

I guess he forgot about Blade, which came out 20 years ago and was a smash hit that spawned a franchise trilogy. And what about Hancock, with Will Smith? It grossed over US$600 million worldwide.

That's just one fact about true Hollywood diversity that was left out of this year's Academy Awards ceremony.

WATCH my brief history lesson about "gender pay gaps" and "diversity" in the movie business.

So disappointed the Liberals didn’t get a academy award for keeping a straight face every time Trudeau evades questions , It has to be brain numbing having to sit and listen to him stumble through every answer . But what is more mind numbing is supporting it . Man if this is Democracy shoot me now .
As far as all these spoil Hollywood brats go and me too , get real every one knew their was a acting couch and wanted their turn .

Well if hollywood is so damn enlightened then why is it that Marvel Studios made the first movie of this type(according to them)? Comics had Black lead characters a long long time ago.

I only support right leaning actors, and there are a few of them. The left leaning actors are too limp wristed for my liking..

The Oscars are a colossal waste of time.

Don’t forget the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park.

Spawn was also a black superhero….. sort of. Leftist Hollywood is a cesspool. They live in a fantasy land on & off the set. The world of fantasy is the only place were the leftist narrative actually works. The trouble starts when they have to connect with the real world.
