The Oscars is an anachronism that has outlived its time. Long gone are the glory days of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Katherine Hepburn, Paul Newman and Rod Steiger. Gone are great hosts of the past- Bob Hope, Johnny Carson and Billy Crystal. In their stead are discount hosts such as Jimmy Kimmel, Seth MacFarlane and Wanda Sykes.

Gone is the class and dignity, replaced by woke quotas.

Starting with 2024 films, your project can’t even be considered for a Best Picture Oscar unless it meets a set of diversity targets of the kind you’d normally expect to see credited to the Oberlin Freshperson Student Social-Justice Initiative & Sustainable Vegan Hemp Co-Operative. Good news, whoever staged that Rob-Lowe-meets-Snow-White dance number: You’re now the second-most embarrassing thing ever associated with the Academy Awards.

To boil down the long, complicated new rules: To be eligible for best picture, a film has to check two out of four boxes. One is to represent glorious 21st-century American diversity in its casting (a problem if your movie is set in, say, pretty much any other time and place); another is to have two minorities or women as heads of departments; another is affirmative action in the marketing and distribution departments.

The current “stars” use the platform to shove their views down your throat:

“It has been quite a year, and we are still smack dab in the middle of it,” King opened. “We are mourning the loss of so many… and I have to be honest, if things had gone differently this past week in Minneapolis, I may have traded in my heels for marching boots.”

That was her reaction to the 2021 verdict of former police officer Derek Chauvin for his responsibility in the death of George Floyd which led to nationwide protests and riots in 2020.

Don’t like it? Up yours.

“Now, I know a lot of you people at home want to reach for your remotes and you feel like Hollywood is preaching to you,” she continued. “But as a mother of a black son, I know the fear that so many live with, and no amount of fame or fortune changes that. Ok?”

Tyler Perry:

“My mother taught me to refuse hate…just refuse hate. Don’t hate anybody.”

Travon Free (whoever the hell he is):

“Today, the police will kill 3 people,” and so on, every day he claimed before later adding, “Please don’t be indifferent to our pain.”

A long-time writer for the Oscars weighed in:

“The latest wrinkle,” he said, “is the woke madness…they’re so crazed and they’re eating their own, you know, they’re just eating their young and nuts. It’s just nuts.”

He suggested that the hosts now are the back benchers for those who want nothing to do with the program, knowing how miserable the ratings were going to be.

This year’s woke clown show was a doozy. Chris Rock went off-script to make a joke about Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith was enraged and stormed the stage to slap Rock.

Pathetic. It’s all pathetic. This year’s ratings were higher than last, but these antics ought to fix that. The Oscars have evolved into a mockery of nights past. Maybe next year nominees could determine the winners in a cage fight or better yet, kill it off entirely.
