Hollywood and the Media Really Upset by Ricky Gervais’ Hosting at 2020 Golden Globes

Hollywood and the Media Really Upset by Ricky Gervais’ Hosting at 2020 Golden Globes

Oh, Hollywood and the media – both worlds consisting largely of very vocal liberals – did not take kindly to host Ricky Gervais dressing down of them at all.

I am not an expert on all things Gervais, but I gather from what I have read that he is an atheist and a liberal.

Hollywood types and the liberal media – and most of our journalists are liberal – loathe anyone who is a conservative or who lives in what they dismiss as “fly over country.”

Then your “everyday” liberals on Twitter were throwing a fit, lecturing conservatives, “Hey, you guys DO realize that Gervais is an atheist and a liberal, and he probably wouldn’t agree with your views, right?” -Yeah, we know, and we don’t care.

I’m actually fine with people holding opposing views to mine, so long as they are not unreasonable, rude, or arrogant about it – or hypocritical.

What Gervais did was point out what enormous hypocrites most of Hollywood are, and they did not like it one bit.

Actor Kevin Hart Getting Beaten Up By Liberals Over Old Negative Tweets About LGBT People (2018)

Actor Kevin Hart Getting Beaten Up By Liberals Over Old Negative Tweets About LGBT People (2018)

(Post updated below, Jan. 2019)

This circus never ends. I initially was not going to blog about this, but it keeps coming up in the news.

Actor Kevin Hart was being proposed to host the next Oscars, until someone said he made some really old tweets mocking homosexual people. Then liberals got in a tizzy, demand he not get the gig, and now, they are really shrieking that he should apologize.

Assorted links about the situation:

Kevin Hart Steps Down as Oscar Host

 Just 48 hours after agreeing to host the 91st Academy Awards, Kevin Hart unceremoniously stepped down late Thursday night on social media.

The turn of events followed outcry over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines nearly 10 years ago. Some of the tweets were feverishly deleted throughout the day on Thursday, leading to an Instagram video from the comedian that only made matters worse for him.

Actress Rebel Wilson Accused of Blocking Black Critics Over Plus-Size Rom-Com Comment

Rebel Wilson Accused of Blocking Black Critics Over Plus-Size Rom-Com Comment

Actress Rebel Wilson got criticized on Twitter over a tweet she made about a new romantic comedy that she’s in.

Wilson, who is apparently white, claimed this rom com she is now starring in is the first rom com starring a plus-sized actress, but several people on twitter corrected her, saying that previously, other large-sized women, who are black actresses, had led in rom coms in years past.

Supposedly, Wilson didn’t appreciate this push-back, or perhaps became over-whelmed over the online backlash, and started blocking people on Twitter.

Rebel Wilson appeared in the 2011 movie “Bridesmaids,” in which actor Chris O’Dowd also appeared, though they did not have any scenes together.

I mention this because O’Dowd blocked me on Twitter over a year ago, even though I never even tweeted at him or used his Twitter handle in the tweets I made mentioning him,

This tells me that, obviously, O’Dowd goes through mentions of his name on Twitter for the specific purpose of seeing what people are saying about him and also for blocking anyone who says anything remotely critical or negative about him.

Wilson at least replied to a few of the critical Tweets she got before commencing with her Block Party on Twitter, which is more than I can say about O’Dowd, who blocks people on that platform who’ve never even tweeted at him, such as myself.

2018 Emmys host Michael Che says the only white people who thank Jesus at award shows are Republicans, ‘ex-crackheads’

Emmys host Michael Che says the only white people who thank Jesus at award shows are Republicans, ‘ex-crackheads’

The 70th Annual Emmy Awards kicked off with a slew of political jokes and jabs as expected. But one remark from co-host Michael Che left many viewers upset.

During Che’s opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, Che explained that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“My mother is not watching,” Che said. “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”

He continued, “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”

Liberal Absurdity Over Acting Roles: ‘You’re Not X Enough For the Role’

Liberal Absurdity Over Acting Roles: ‘You’re Not X Enough For the Role’

this will be a post that I update any time I see new examples of this phenomenon

In the past few weeks, I’ve seen some bizarre news headlines go through my Twitter feed, involving a large percentage of liberals who are harassing actors on social media, or complaining on other platforms about movie casting.

I’m all for diversity in movie role casting, but I think liberals have gone too far. There is no pleasing them.

Hollywood: Please Stop Marketing Some of Your Movies as Being “Feminist”

Hollywood: Please Stop Marketing Some of Your Movies as Being “Feminist”

I’m a conservative, but unlike many other conservatives, I don’t get upset by having more diversity in casting in movies – within reason and depending on how it’s handled, at least.

If Hollywood wants to include more women, black people, Asians, or Hispanics in movies, I have no problem with it, and I welcome it.

I do actually tire of seeing primarily white, 30 year old guys play the lead in most movies, and it’s been this way for decades now.

(Note: I do not hate white men. I’m just saying it gets tiresome seeing mostly nothing but white guys on screen constantly.)

My one area of exception: I do think, however, the Trans activists and LGBT crowd go way too far out though in their anger over LGBT diversity in movies – such as getting upset over a cis, hetero actress playing a transman in a movie. (See Amid Backlash, Scarlett Johansson Drops Transgender Role as an example.)

At any rate, I’m by no means opposed to having more women or black people in films – as a matter of fact, I think movies can look very strange if everyone is white and male, because I live in a world that has more types of people in it, one that is populated by more than 30-something white men.

While I believe it’s wonderful to include more women in movies, I think Hollywood should be careful about how they go about doing this, otherwise they end up shooting themselves in the foot and creating a sexist backlash – which is what happened in the case of the Paul Feig Ghostbusters.

Creating Backlash By Marketing a Movie as Being “Feminist”

If a studio wants to include more women in roles, and does in fact cast more women, especially in these gender swap movies, the best way to go about it is to not call attention to it, which may seem counter-intuitive, especially if you think advertising a movie as being “feminist” or “pro-woman” will attract more women audience members.

If that is what you assume, you would be wrong, and I don’t care how many focus groups you’ve run on this subject.

Shania Twain Apologizes After Saying She Would Have Voted For Trump

Shania Twain Caves To Left-Wing Intimidation  

Leftists are taking Canadian singer Shania Twain to the woodshed.

Her crime? In an interview with the Guardian, she said that she would have supported President Donald J. Trump in the 2016 election, if she had been allowed to vote. She said she would have voted for Trump because he seems honest.

ESPN isn’t just dying the death of a thousand chord cuts. Ratings for the Oscars aren’t down simply because the Academy keeps nominating movies nobody has seen.

And it wasn’t just a disappointing U.S. medal haul or NBC’s amateurish broadcast that drove Winter Olympics viewership down 24% compared to Sochi among viewers aged 18-49.

 Sure, those all may be contributing factors in dismal ratings for once-thriving networks and broadcasts. But we have more evidence that the relentless politicization of entertainment media is alienating audiences.

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say

Regardless if they help or harm their liberal causes, I wish they would keep their political opinions to themselves, instead of spewing them in interviews, on social media, and in You Tube videos.

This was written by Christian Toto, who I follow on Twitter:

Hollywood Celebrities Hurt Liberal Causes As Much As They Help, Political Scientists Say 

Excerpts:

Hollywood celebrities once again are gearing up to advocate and agitate for their causes as elections approach, but political scientists and observers say liberal stars do as much to hurt as help their efforts.

…But in the wake of the failure of the full-scale industry push for Hillary Clinton in 2016, political observers are left to assess whether Hollywood’s progressive campaigns do more to mobilize liberals or energize conservatives.

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

Celebrities Who Get It – They Don’t Alienate the Public By Publicly Trashing Other People’s Politics or Religious Views

This is an on-going list. Any time I see a famous person who comprehends that it’s really stupid to unnecessarily offend about half the country (and it’s almost always liberal celebrities trashing right wing people or people with conservative religious beliefs) I want to add such examples to this post.

(I may also post examples of celebrities who speak up in disagreement with liberal celebrities and directors on other matters.)

Just to get started:

Mel Brooks (actor, director, comedian):
