… some shitty movie nobody wants to watch because it is a two hour Marxist lecture on how I am racist.
For years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been obsessed with only one thing, diversity, both at its Oscar award ceremonies and within its institution. Now new rules will oblige films aspiring to the Oscar for best picture – from 2024 – to comply with minimum percentages of inclusion and racial diversity.
Under the new rules, films like 1917 or The Irishman, to name two of the main Oscar contenders last year, would have had a very difficult time being included in the best picture category. The new standards require that “at least one of the lead actors or significant supporting actors is from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group,” a list that includes Arabs, blacks, Asians and indigenous peoples, among other ethnicities.
Another option is that the plot of the film revolves around women, underrepresented groups, LGBT people or people with disabilities. If you don’t have that, then at least 30% supporting actors or minor roles coming from society’s lower tiers will suffice (LGBT, people with cognitive disabilities, etc).
The idea is to take revenge for “historical imbalances”, because rewarding mediocrity today somehow makes up for previously rewarding talent and ability.
Unsurprisingly, foreigners and ethnics are delighted and ecstatic. “Urban” filmmaker Jerome (Dr. DJ) Johnson angrily welcomed the move as “about f___ing time!” Actress Kirstie Alley bravely called it “a disgrace to artists everywhere … Control artists, control individual thought .. OSCAR ORWELL” on twitter, but was then bullied into removing the tweet, although at 69 her acting career is pretty much over anyway, unless new rules come out mandating including seniors in films. This is unlikely, however, since unlike the Marxist social scum who run the Academy, seniors have actually contributed to society. Alex Wade from the Organization of British Film wondered “When will we be Clockwork Oranged and forced to watch these films?”
Speaking of sinking to a new low, even with people confined to their homes and pretty much forced to watch TV, the 2020 edition awards ceremony was watched by an all time low number of viewers. So some executive thought, “I know, let’s make it even more unwatchable and cringeworthy!”
