The Academy Awards were your usual bit of stilted passing of trophies to actors and filmmakers with prepared speeches about racial injustice, gay rights, and equal pay for women. Also, how we’re really not about Transformers and Iron Man even though that makes up 99% of our industry revenue. Those all sound good. But I don’t need an affliction movie to breakout at my civil rights rally. I just want Charlize Theron to be able to buy black babies and marry an humorless roid rager and get paid a fair $10 million for a Snow White sequel. She is getting all that now, but where’s the confetti drop? I want to live in a world where we encourage people to stay weird. Like creepy cancer wig John Travolta caressing women throughout the evening. The awkward beard show drew attention away from everybody spitting on Clint Eastwood. From behind. From the front they were asking for jobs. There’s so much to love about Hollywood. It’s just yet to be found.
