The Academy Awards Hug-A-Thon and Trump Bashing Show aired last night. Interspersed among the preening and self-congratulations there were bitter, sarcastic diatribes against the man who won an election by appealing to people who have never been or ever will be a part of the Hollywood stuffed shirts.
Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel predictably trashed President Trump. He said the Oscars were being watched in more than 225 countries that now hate the U.S.
[CtH: Maybe, maybe not. The show hit a 9 year ratings low.]
He called on the star-studded crowd to give a ‘highly overrated’ Meryl Streep a standing ovation before joking about her dress, saying ‘by the way, is that an Ivanka?’
And he said Trump would later tweet about all of the Oscar winner’s acceptance speeches ‘in all caps’, then tweeted: ‘Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?’
Italian make up artist Alessandro Bertolazzi dedicated his Oscar win to ‘all the immigrants’
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years.
Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who won an Oscar for his film The Salesman, issued a statement saying he was not present out of ‘respect for the people of my country’ who have been banned from entering the U.S.
[CtH: Hey, schmuck, how about respecting the American men and women who served, sweated, suffered, and died to free you from Saddam Hussein and help you set up a democratic government for the first time in your sorry history.]
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said in accepting the Oscar for adapted screenplay that people who don’t feel like they have support can look to the American Civil Liberties Union and artists over the next four years
CARE TO GUESS WHY ‘MOONLIGHT’ WON? REMEMBER THE #OSCARS SO WHITE LAST YEAR?… THERE YOU GO.
Oscars shots are pure gold for Donald Trump: Hollywood elites’ snark bolsters prez
Before the best picture gaffe stole the show last night, Hollywood took some shots at President Trump during the Academy Awards, a chorus political strategists say plays right into the president’s hands and solidifies his status as the antithesis of liberal elites.
GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the Americans who put Trump in the White House would likely be put off by quips at the commander in chief.
“Any time Hollywood liberals politically grandstand it helps the president,” O’Connell said. “Ordinary Americans have never been to Tinseltown, and their concerns revolve around making rent and paying college loans, not virtue signaling for the sake of standing on a red carpet.”

I’D HAVE KNOCKED THE LITTLE BITCH ON HER ASS
THIS MOVIE GROSSED $30M/ I GUESS A BLACK DUDE BOINKING A WHITE GIRL AND MURDERING HER WHOLE FAMILY IS HILARIOUS
The story kicks off when Rose (Allison Williams) invites her boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to take a drive out of town and meet her parents. He’s a little cautious. Did she inform them that he is black? She hasn’t, but swears that Mom and Dad (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) are perfectly open-minded, Obama-supporting progressives. Nothing to worry about.
Initial awkward conversations (like a family friend boasting that he once golfed “with Tiger”) soon turn sinister. Just why is everyone behaving so strangely, especially the African-American groundskeeper and maid?
