I haven’t watched the Sad-academy Sewer-awards in years. It would have been a big waste of my time. Besides, there were good movies on the Hallmark channel last night.
This morning, I heard on a news report about the screw-up re: La La Land “accidentally” being named as best picture; then finding out that Moonlight actually won. Is that the one that Denzel Washington starred in? I do like him as an actor and maybe he won best actor for his role. However, I don’t know his political leanings but will guess that he wanted HilLIARy to win.
Within the news report I watched, there was one commentator that shared the thought of exactly why La La Land didn’t win. He said something like, “was it because the Moonlight movie had many black actors in it?” I recall (from news reports and someone in Hollyweird actually complaining about it) that the Oscars apparently didn’t have enough African-Americans nominated last year. So…was this done to appease them and avoid such harsh rhetoric yet again? Who knows… Perhaps the movie that won this year outrightly deserved to be chosen over La La Land.
It is ironic, however, to note that “la-la land” is defined:
a state of being out of touch with reality.
(usually initial capital letters) Los Angeles.
British Dictionary definitions for la-la land
(not capitals) a place that is remote from reality
Yep…very fitting for describing Hollyweird in LA.
Anyway, that flub last night with the wrong movie being announced as best picture reminds us of when HiLIARy’s “Madam” photo was already printed on the Newsweek magazine cover! They got that wrong, too! Ha ha!
