Out of the mouths of babes, as they say! When it’s Hollywood babes, however, what comes out of their mouths isn’t always very cute or funny. Such was the case on HBO’s hit drama Big Little Lies which is on its second season after the first received rave reviews. On Sunday’s episode, “She Knows,” the writers of thought it would be amusing to have a little boy call God a “douchebag.”
This Fall TV season is starting to arrive and the Emmys are just around the corner. Likely both will provide the media with new opportunities to preach to ordinary Americans about how diverse Hollywood is. But what those claims won’t tell you is that Hollywood is one of the most racist, sexist places to work.
The title for episode two of Big Little Lies, which aired Sunday, February 26, on HBO, ended up having a much deeper meaning than just competition among some of the mothers to have the most popular children, the best birthday parties, and to be the alpha mother ruling over all other moms at fictional Otter Bay Elementary School set in Monterey, California.
Hollywood bias extends beyond tweets and activism—it’s in the money too. Using data from the Center for Responsive Politics, MRC Culture found that six Oscar nominees together donated more than $240,000 to Democratic and liberal causes.
After the election, many liberal celebrities cried “Resist!” Yet, a few brave ones called “embrace.”
When we hear celebrities speaking about politics, it usually includes a lot of Republican-bashing, so when we hear an actress speak about supporting whoever is president, it's news.Actress Nicole Kidman tries to avoid talking politics, but during a recent interview with BBC News, she suggested people rally behind Trump as America’s president elect. Kidman describes herself more issue based rather pledging to one certain political party.
Nicole Kidman gave a tremendously lewd, sexually provocative lap dance to Jimmy Kimmel on national television Thursday night.
This occurred during ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live which was humorously hijacked by Matt Damon (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
