Default Christie Alley challanges the OSCAR'S

Christie Alley has been an actor in Hollywood for fifty some years. She knows the score there but apparently has had enough.
Putting controls on artists???? Gimmie a break.


"You people have lost your minds." she tweets.

Putting diversity quotas in any situation is as rabidly racists as it gets. If art imitates life or vice-a versa, then the two should be comparable. Yes, one is reality and the other fantasy but fantasy is what the controlling racists want.



DAILY WIRE;

On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) released its new guidelines for inclusion, which dictated that movies must meet a diversity threshold, employing specific minority individuals in front of or behind the camera to qualify for Best Picture. As The Los Angeles Times reported:

Those standards require one of the following: at least one of the lead actors or significant supporting actors is from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group; at least 30% of all actors in secondary and more minor roles are from certain underrepresented groups; or the main storyline, theme or narrative is centered on an underrepresented group.

To be eligible for best picture, a film must meet at least two standards across four categories: “Onscreen Representation, Themes and Narratives,” “Creative Leadership and Project Team,” “Industry Access and Opportunities” and “Audience Development.” Within each category are a variety of criteria …

DailyWire

In response to this blatant violation of artistic freedom, actress Kirstie Alley (“Cheers,” “Star Trek”) said the new rules are “a disgrace to artists everywhere” and likened it to telling Picasso what he could and could not paint.

“This is a disgrace to artists everywhere…can you imagine telling Picasso what had to be in his ****ing paintings,” tweeted Kirstie Alley. “You people have lost your minds. Control artists, control individual thought .. OSCAR ORWELL.”

Kristie Alley deleted that tweet and later clarified that she supports diversity and inclusion but opposes the mandating of it.


“I deleted my first tweet about the new rules for best movie OSCARS because I feel it was a poor analogy & misrepresented my viewpoint. I am 100% behind diversity inclusion & tolerance. I’m opposed to MANDATED ARBITRARY percentages relating to hiring human beings in any business,” she tweeted.

As if anyone in the real world even cares how hollywood likes to pat themselves on the back. But at least someone on the inside sees the hypocrisy and stupidity of it all.

Someone will eventually make a movie about Nazi Germany, and the Nazis will be made up of Whites, Blacks, Jews, Mexicans, Chinese, homos, transsexuals, and some other types. And if that movie does not win at least eight awards, including Best Picture, someone is going to throw a progressive snowflake rainbow shlt fit.
