Emmys #SoLeft: Biased Nominations Showcase Only Liberal Actors and Shows

July 14th, 2017 2:59 PM

Hollywood has never beat around the bush when it comes to proclaiming its politics -- and that includes the shows and stars the industry honors with nominations and awards.   

Yesterday, July 13, the complete list for the Emmy nominations was released. Most of nominees were shows or actors that supported Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton (or Bernie Sanders, in the case of Susan Sarandon), and supported the LGBTQ in their political correctness. In fact, some of the shows nominated have been so outspoken and even scandalous in their content that it seems as if the media will willingly praise only political, liberal programs as quality television.

The amount of liberal propaganda in these categories is so much that it can’t be just a coincidence.

In the categories for Best Actress for either drama, limited series, or comedy, all of the names should seem familiar. That’s because all of the nominees are well-known for their support of Planned Parenthood and outspoken campaigning for Clinton, (again, with the exception of Sarandon). There are a couple of exceptions: Nicole Kidman and Claire Foy are not United States citizens and therefore don’t really have a place in the American propaganda scheme.

Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Allison Janney, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Elisabeth Moss have all offered their financial and vocal support for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion mill. Ellie Kemper, Pamela Adlon, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Viola Davis, Evan Rachel Wood, Robin Wright, Felicity Huffman and Reese Witherspoon all supported Clinton in her run for the presidency. Even Keri Russell, Carrie Coon, and Jessica Lange, who haven’t spoken out recently about politics, are Democrats. Based on their donations to Democrat politicians, listed on OpenSecrets.org, public endorsements of Democrat politicians, or public condemnations of Trump or other Republican politicians, there are no nominees in these categories who identify as Republican.

The same criticism applies to all the major best actor categories, be it drama, comedy, or limited series. All of the actors nominated are openly liberal, again with the exceptions of Benedict Cumberbatch, Ewan McGregor, and Geoffrey Rush, who are not United States citizens. Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Donald Glover, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Tambor, Sterling K. Brown, Bob Odenkirk, Matthew Rhys, Liev Schreiber, Kevin Spacey, Milo Ventimiglia, Riz Ahmed, Robert De Niro and John Turturro all identify as Democrat. Some actively campaigned for Hillary. Even actor Anthony Hopkins (who became an American citizen in 2000), has linked himself to liberal organizations such as Greenpeace. Again, no Republicans or independent affiliations here.

The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s breakout drama that has caused so many abortion-supporting feminists to dress in costumes mimicking the ones on the show, received a total of 6 nominations. While some of the nominations for Best Drama and Best Limited Series have steered clear of the in-your-face politics (such as FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan and HBO’s Big Little Lies), the majority of the shows nominated in these categories are left-wing. One that stands out above all the rest is Ron Howard’s series, Genius, which created a Nazi scientist character that was inspired by President Trump.

In the category for Best Comedy, all of the shows nominated are notorious for their political tantrums over Trump, their support of Hillary, and their feminist and liberal values. Some of the major offenders include “black-ish,” “Master of None,” and Veep. The show “black-ish,” which received four nominations total, has repeatedly focused on the election and questionable race policies. Master of None, starring Aziz Ansari, has gone out of its way to attack in the most vulgar manner possible conservative politicians, and judges, including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In their last season, Modern Family praised the Women’s March and highlighted the importance of raising a child to be gay, almost as if sexuality was a goal to be achieved. Even the adorable show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt changed its somewhat apolitical tune to address liberal values this season.

Not to mention when it came to late night talk shows, only the most political and anti-Trump were nominated for best program. Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Bill Maher were nominated, and the mostly apolitical Jimmy Fallon was snubbed completely. Even The Hollywood Reporter mentioned that being anti-Trump could give a “boost in Emmy buzz.”

Coincidence? Or extreme political bias? You decide.
