An increasingly out-of-touch Hollywood celebrates itself before a relatively small audience. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Ricky Gervais might have been on to something…
From Joaquin Phoenix – the man who’s fighting climate change by wearing the same tux to all his award shows – raving about the injustices of inseminating cows, to Chris Rock and Steve Martin’s insipid jokes about #OscarsSoWhite, this year’s Oscars was almost intolerable for viewers who haven’t totally bought in to the far-left identity politics currently dominating Hollywood. And it showed in the ratings.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, this year’s Oscars – which some have joked would be the ‘wokest Oscars ever’ after Kevin Hart was fired as host and best picture went to a foreign film (South Korea’s “Parasite”) for the first time – bagged the lowest TV ratings in the history of the storied awards show.
