I don't normally watch awards shows. I think it gives an already self obsessed Hollywood another reason to say, "Look at me! Adore me! Give me another little statue for playing make believe!" So except for Adele's performance last night, they could've kept this years awards ceremony. From Dustin Hoffman kissing Pierce Morgan's behind about gun control (while on the red carpet surrounded by armed guards), to the jokes about slavery, mocking the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the constant jabs at conservatives, to the vulgar comments about 9 year old Quvenzhané Wallis. Not to mention the crude jokes about domestic assault and battery, and the sexual jokes using "Ted the bear", all courtesy of the host Seth MacFarlane. And for the love of God, could someone please explain to me what the First Lady had to do with last night's ceremony, and using our troops as her background props? And that God awful "speech" of hers was very much condescending, and very much like Eva Péron (as my friend Chris Plante said this morning on his show.) Oh wait, that's right, almost all of them in Hollywood worship at the feet of our dear leader! Nothing to see here moving on...
I feel sorry for parents who would love nothing more than to sit with their children, and watch what for the most part used to be a "family friendly" show. Last night's ceremony is everything that is wrong with Hollywood, and the degradation of society. I am glad I did not watch it with my children around. Today's actors have turned a once noble group of professionals into a cesspool of drugs, sex, infidelity, hypocrisy, and elitism that we continue to feed, by going to their movies, and buying the checkout lane magazines, and watching their crap on T.V. They show what happens when you live by the motto of, "Do whatever makes you feel good, without consequences!" Now don't get me wrong, I love a good movie, but it gets harder and harder to want to support that hellhole of a place.
