Hollywood continued its slide into irrelevance Sunday night as nobody watched the overrated extravaganza and the assembled dilletante leftists slammed those who keep our streets safe. Next year the Oscars may only be watched by most of New York City, California, and Beijing.
FNC: “The “One Night in Miami” director Regina King said that it would have been quite a different celebratory night for her had Chauvin not been convicted in the May 2020 murder of George Floyd. ‘I have to be honest if things had gone differently this week in Minneapolis, I would have traded in my heels for marching boots.’…According to Variety, citing early Nielsen numbers, an average of 9.85 million viewers watched the show Sunday evening, which is a 58.3%, 13.75 million viewer drop-off from last year. In addition, the show earned a mere 1.9 rating among the key demographic of adults age 18-49. For comparison, that’s a big drop-off from last year’s 23.64 million viewers and a 5.3 in the key demographic — both of those numbers were already previous all-time lows.”
BREAKING: Oscars ratings crash to an all-time low, down a staggering 58% on last year’s Awards (which was also an all-time low.) As I feared, the woke brigade may have now destroyed the biggest, glitziest event in showbusiness.

Travon Free, one of the directors of “Two Distant Strangers,” said “Today the police will kill three people and tomorrow the police will kill three people, and the day after that the police will kill three people because on average the police in America every day kill three people…Those people have been disproportionately Black people… I ask that you please not be indifferent. Please don’t be indifferent to our pain.”
But not all were singing from the same Bolshevik hymnal. Director Tyler Perry said, “My mother taught me to refuse hate, she taught me to refuse blanket judgment. With all of these internet and social internet algorithms, it is my hope that all of us would teach our kids to just refuse hate. Don’t hate anybody. I refuse to hate someone because they are Mexican, or because they are Black or White or LGBTQ. I refuse to hate someone because they are a police officer. I refuse to hate someone because they are Asian. I want to take this Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and dedicate it to whoever wants to stand in the middle. That’s where conversation happens, that’s where change happens.” Bravo Mr. Perry.
