Default ABC star Jimmy Kimmel's 'divisive,' politically charged Oscars were lowest on record

"I'm gonna keep these Oscars positive, so here's a bunch of divisive political babble attacking conservatives."

Not too big of a shocker that ratings were a record-low with Kimmel and his partisan rhetoric along with virtually every "celebrity" that spoke.

ABC star Jimmy Kimmel's 'divisive,' politically charged Oscars were lowest on record

Quote:
Jimmy Kimmel claimed he was keeping this year's Oscars positive, but the ratings were anything but.

The politically charged 2018 Academy Awards were down 19.5 percent compared to the 2017 numbers, averaging 26.5 million viewers for the lowest viewership since Nielsen began electronically recording its data in the early 1990s, according to TheWrap.
Quote:
Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor told Fox News viewers shouldn’t be surprised that the show turned political and featured “divisive, left-wing politics” throughout the four-hour event.

“The Tinseltown elite genuinely hate the people they expect will pay to see their movies and watch their TV shows,” Gainor said. “Why do we support them?”
Quote:
Sunday night’s awards were politically charged and loaded with mentions of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Kimmel took jabs at President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and even Fox News viewers.

“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” Kimmel quipped at one point. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
Quote:
During the show, Kimmel lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: "Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News."

Kimmel wasn't the only one getting political throughout the night. Stars Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong'o took the stage to share a message of support to Dreamers ahead of announcing "Shape of Water" as the winner of best production design.

A musical performance from Common and Andra Day of “Stand Up for Something” was an ode to American activism with politically charged lyrics about topics like the NRA, the Parkland shooting, immigration, feminism and Puerto Rico.

They were prolly Republicans.

Oscars 'In Memoriam' segment slammed for excluding Adam West, Glen Campbell

Quote:
Other people left out of the “In Memoriam” segment included “Harlem Nights” actress Della Reese, “The Lion King” actor Robert Guillaume, “Frasier” star John Mahoney, Jim Nabors of “Gomer Pyle,” “The Partridge Family” star David Cassidy, “Magnum P.I.” actor John Hillerman, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” director Tobe Hooper, “Written on the Wind” actress Dorothy Malone, and “House of Cards” actor Reg. E. Cathey.

Some people also argued that “M*A*S*H” star David Ogden Stiers should have been honored in the segment, though he died a day before the awards show. However, the Oscars did manage to add Bill Paxton into last year's “In Memoriam,” who also died a day before the 2017 Academy Awards.

This old, washed-up whore ranted and raved 'bout 'inclusion riders,' which is basically a demand that peeps get hired onto a film based on their race/sex/sexual preference instead of their skills and abilities.

What is an 'inclusion rider'?

Good thing celebs don't have to use their brains to make a living.

Embarrassment as Emma Watson sports feminist tattoo with grammatical error

Quote:
Emma Watson displayed some new ink at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party but social media users pointed out the tattoo’s glaring grammatical error.

The “Harry Potter” star showed off a tattoo that read “Times Up” on her arm -- clearly missing the apostrophe for the organization Time's Up.

It was not immediately clear if the tattoo was real. People reported the tattoo could be temporary.

Welcome to the Oscars, where we're standing up for sexual and physical assault against women.

And tonight's winner for Best Actor? A man who was accused by his ex-wife of beating her.

Online backlash is fierce for Gary Oldman’s Oscars win

Gary Oldman won Best Actor at the Academy Awards. But for some entertainment fans, the 59-year-old actor’s win marks the “Darkest Hour” of the #metoo era.

Social media users are resurrecting allegations from Oldman’s ex-wife in 2001. The Daily Beast reported that she said Oldman hit her “in the face with the telephone receiver three or four times.” (Oldman has denied these allegations.)

“Strange that Gary Oldman didn’t thank his publicist for keeping all of those domestic violence assault allegations from getting too much coverage this awards season,” writes film blogger Jon Adams.

“Why don’t they ask Gary Oldman about hitting his ex-wife in the face with a telephone? That seems relevant,” tweets writer Roxane Gay.

“Literally ANY OF THE OTHER FOUR NOMINEES would have been better than Gary Oldman,” writes Buzzfeed editor Kristin Chirico.

But not everyone seems to be bothered by Oldman’s past. One Oscar voter anonymously told the Hollywood Reporter: “Gary Oldman was so good that I don’t care if he hit his wife with a telephone.”

When were the Oscars? But a more important question would be, who care?

I heard they had armed security there. But they DON'T want armed security protecting kids. I guess they are not as important.

Makes sense. Hollywood lecturing us on morals is like a crack addict tellin' peeps to just say no to drugs.

Americans Not Interested in Their 'Lecture' on Morality

Seriously, hearin' "celebs" speak out against sexual abuse in Hollywood while they stood by and did nothin' for decades is comical.

Yeah it's crazy that people like Oprah admit they knew about it, but did nothing. And there is Zero backlash from the media and the left.

Actually I think she got Kudos for saying it.
