I had no idea which films were nominated, because I have only seen one film last year "Growing up Dahmer", which wasn't nominated.

But, mostly because us common folk are just tired to the point of vomitus of them preaching their politics and morals to us, when they have no reason or really authority to do so. I don't really care about what they think of Trump. Sexual harassment of women and women having to have sex with gross individuals to advance their career has been going on for a hundred years now (1918, Charlie Chaplin days). The hypocrisy burns, it really does.

It would be nice if the system just totally changes in the next decades, and hopefully as Mr. Data said in TNG that "television as a form of entertainment died out by 2040." We can only hope. (That and California falls into the ocean).
Well, common man, you are wrong.

People *do* watch movies now. With just as much fervor and regularity as they have since tv took over a large portion of the entertainment audience in the 1950's (how's THAT for quality observation?!).

The difference is now we pay less money and watch them at home on our giant tv screens in our teeshirts and boxers instead of getting dressed for the public and sitting politely in a theatre for more money.

They don't spend 50 million dollars to make a film because nobody is going to see it.

Braintrust.

In other Hollywood hipocracy :

They lecture us on gun control while making movies that glorify gun violence behind a small army of 500 armed guards.

Apparently, it took over 500 police and bomb squads to secure the Oscar's. Which was just fine for the Hollywood misfits but, not when it comes to providing police security for the common citizen or securing our borders. Wasn't it Robert De Niro who said he wanted to punch Trump in the face? I wonder if knows just how many people would like to do the same to him?

Movies donít kill, people do. Just ask any other nation that distributes these same movies without the related gun violence.

Yeah, because....it's only recently that war movies were made, sci-fi came along, cowboys and Indians rode into town, and guns have been seen on the BIG screen. AND it's only Democrats who make/made movies since...ohhh.....1900 and only Democrats who starred in those movies.

Good job, J for Genius.

Careful, Caca. You and your friends are eventually going to run out of people to hate. Let's see what we've got so far:
Democrats/Liberal Loons
Academia
Media of all sorts (except RW)
Government agencies
Unions
Entertainment industry
Americans on public assistance
Immigrants
Muslims
Environmentalists
Social workers
Public school educators
Industry regulators
Atheists
FBI agents
Europeans
Canadians
Medicaid recipients
Healthcare Industry
Poor people
Gays
Blacks

Whew!! AND I probably forgot some.
What's left? Oh yeah...how could I forget? DONALD J (for Genius) Trump.

And that is the big point to which they never have an answer.

Then why are you not supporting a people ban?
