Who would’ve thought that Hollywood is full of hypocritical airheads who are more fond of lip service than meaningful activism? Well by now, probably everybody. And if you were still under the impression that these are the saints of our time and don’t want that bubble to burst, don’t watch last night's Emmy Awards show and stay away from The Washington Post.
The opening monologue of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing September 17 on NBC, included a little of the usual political slams worked into Hollywood entertainment award shows. The ceremony hosts, Saturday Night Live’s "Weekend Update" hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, took swipes at Christian conservatives and Roseanne fans.
It’s an amazing thing to watch how America has gone from the land of the free and the home of the brave to a nation that more resembles a dystopia or utopia existing only in the dreams of social justice warriors. After reading pieces from the MRC Culture on TV team on Hulu’s Harlots and two items on Freeform’s The Bold Type, it’s more than enough to get the picture as to what passes as content worthy of American cable airwaves.
The entertainment media industry recently revealed the Emmy nominations for 2018. Of course, it came packaged with all the fanfare and excitement that they assume Americans are famished for – even though viewers are probably still reeling from all the liberal hypocrisy and self-preening celebrity antics from the last awards show.
Swell, our beloved Hollywood stars are busy crafting their politicized speeches for the Academy Awards program. I'll bet you can't wait. Oscar-nominated English actor Daniel Kaluuya, in an interview with W magazine, opined that racism is more pronounced in America than in Britain. So happy to learn this and can't wait for his upcoming lecture.
The Grammys are over (and if you watched it, sorry: those IQ points are gone forever.) The Oscars are a little over a month away. That means the we’ve reached peak entertainment awards season, with all the glitz, style and self-congratulation kicking into overdrive.
The numbers don't lie. Across the entertainment industry, viewers and fans are tuning out. It's no coincidence ratings are cratering as unhinged celebrities crank up their anti-Trump and anti-American antics. Pro tip, Tinseltownies: Swapping your jazz hands for middle fingers and waving resistance fists at your customer base is bad for business. Let us count the waning ways.
A sex slave and forced birth dystopia is “fitting” for a “time when women’s rights are under attack,” according to the head of the organization that destroys the lives of more than 160,000 American baby girls each year.
Hollywood couldn’t be clearer in its position on abortion: Three different films are slated to tell the story of an illegal abortion network. And the latest one boasts an actress who just won big at the Emmys.
Despite the liberal media’s roaring approval for Sunday’s Emmy Awards, the first ratings report showed that they were spectacularly awful, setting a new record low with an 8.2 overnight rating and beating out 2016 as the previous low. Deadline: Hollywood had the number in a Monday morning post, but writer Dominic Patten took until paragraph five to reveal the total (minus the giveaway of its pathetic failure in the headline).
Having Sean Spicer appear on the Emmys may be offensive, but the journalists at CBS This Morning loved the “great” award show for mocking “recurring punch line” Donald Trump. Trying to spin the event as somehow just general political comedy, Gayle King hailed, “Television’s biggest night was infused with politics and references to the President.”
After the liberal media spent months laughing over Melissa McCarthy’s depiction of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, on Monday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle was outraged that Spicer himself would participate in a similar skit during Sunday night’s Emmy Awards.
