Quick!  Somebody help “Oscar!”  He’s fallen and he can’t get up!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “Politically charged [2020] Oscars hit all-time low rating, plummet almost 6 million viewers from 2019.”

If I had to guess, all of the “red carpet” pregame shows probably did better than the awards show itself.

My wife likes to see all of the stars and what they’re wearing…, so I got sucked into watching this year…, and then I decided to roll right into the awards show and give it another chance.  I have declined watching The Oscars the last few years because of all of the anti-Trump nonsense.

The opening dance routine was pretty lame, in my opinion.  The girl who came out doing the Mr. Rogers thing obviously didn’t rehearse much.  First, she couldn’t get her jacket off, then she couldn’t hang it up, then her shirt became unbuttoned, then she couldn’t get the sweater on and then she couldn’t button the sweater.

And it was all downhill after that!

The segment with Steve Martin and Chris Rock was really pretty funny, and I was beginning to have hope that this might not be too bad after all.

But the Hollywood idiots just couldn’t resist and they didn’t waste any time.

The very first award for Best Supporting Actor went to Brad Pitt, and he felt it was necessary to make some remark about John Bolton and the Senate, and then something about “the adults in the room” doing something…, and that was it…, “click, click, click,” and I was off watching something else.

What is with all of this denigrating lecturing?!

Do you think you’re Barack Obama or something, Brad?

My 2020 Oscar experience didn’t last very long…, and I probably won’t even try again in the future.

“ABC’s politically charged Oscar telecast averaged [only] 23.6 million viewers on Sunday night, the smallest audience ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).”

“THR noted that total was ‘well below the 29.56 million and 7.7 for last year’s awards,’ and down 20 percent in year-to-year viewers.”

“The lengthy, host-less broadcast fell almost 2 million viewers short of the previous all-time low, when the Oscars averaged 26.54 million viewers back in 2018.”

“The Oscars featured several winners injecting politics into the Academy Awards, starting with the telecast’s first famous victor, Brad Pitt, who took a shot at Republican senators who voted against calling witnesses at President Trump’s impeachment trial.”

‘“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,’ Pitt said. ‘I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.’”

“Pitt was not the only actor to politicize his comments as Joaquin Phoenix used his lengthy, emotional best actor acceptance speech to discuss, among other things, the state of humanity, and the plight of cows.”

I actually have no problem with anyone denouncing animal cruelty…, but the rest of it can go.  Can we just say thank you for the award, say thank you to who you need to thank, and let the show go on?

We really don’t care about anything you have to say.

Really…, we don’t.

“Even socialist revolutionary Karl Marx was mentioned in a speech by Julia Reichert, the co-director of the Barack and Michelle Obama-produced best feature-length documentary winner ‘American Factory.’”

Oh…, that figures!

I believe Oscar fell and broke a hip this year…, and he won’t be getting back up.

Hollywood hypocrites love to “dish it out,” but they sure can’t take it!

Ricky Gervais is an English stand-up comedian, actor, writer, director, producer, and musician.  He is best known for creating, writing and acting in the original British television series “The Office.”

77th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Show

He also hosted The Golden Globe awards show last night, and according to Yahoo senior writer, Ethan Alter, Gervais “attacked Hollywood” in his monologue and “went a little too far.”

Awwww, poor Hollywood!

Inexplicably, I actually caught Gervais’ opening monologue last night, and I thought it was actually refreshing to see all those Hollywood prima donnas take their comeuppance.

If pointing out Hollywood’s hypocrisy and laying out the truth is going too far, then so be it!

You haven’t seen President Trump, or his supporters crying about the abuse they’ve been forced to stomach at the hands of all of these Hollywood hypocrites, have you?

‘“This is the last time I’m hosting these awards,’ Ricky Gervais said moments after taking the stage at the 77th Golden Globe Awards for his fifth hosting gig. Based on the audience reaction to his bridge-burning, F-bomb-laden monologue, this might be the last time he’s allowed in Hollywood… let alone at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s [HFPA’s} annual shindig. The mood in the room was essentially summed up by everyone’s favorite L.A. neighbor Tom Hanks — this year’s recipient of the HFPA’s Cecil B. DeMille Award — whose face displayed an expression of shock and disgust every time the cameras found him in the crowd.”

“One of those jokes that noticeably raised Hanks’s ire was Gervais’ suggestion that the license plate on his HFPA-hired limo was made by Felicity Huffman during her brief prison stay after she was swept up in the college admissions scandal.”

HA!

“Gervais proved anything but embarrassed as he continued to call out the rich and famous on their privileged lifestyle. ‘If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech,’ he warned. ‘You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f*** off. OK?’”

BWAHAHA!

Thank you for that Rickey!  No truer words were ever said!  And they are words that many of us have been dying to say for many years.

“Meanwhile, tech world titan [and Apple CEO], Tim Cook, looked on stone-faced as Gervais praised Apple TV+’s marquee series ‘The Morning Show’ as a ‘superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company who owns sweatshops in China. You say you’re woke but the companies you work for — Apple, Amazon, Disney — if ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn’t you?’”

OUCH!

Tyler McCarthy of Fox News added that, “The biggest stars in TV and film gathered in Beverly Hills in the hopes of kicking off the 2020 awards season with a highly coveted Golden Globe award, and notoriously controversial host Ricky Gervais wasted no time laying into the Hollywood elite vying for a big win.”

“He called out the many stars in the room for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney.”

“Gervais then mocked the stars in attendance for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd.”

‘“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care!’”

BAM!

“He also took a shot at Leonardo DiCaprio for his film ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ being three hours long.”

‘“Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him!’”

Ha!

“He added: ‘Even Prince Andrew is like, “Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.”’”

OUCH, and double OUCH!

Way to go Ricky!

It was a beautiful thing, watching all of the stunned faces as the comedic tables were turned on them for a change.

Mr. Erickson is one of your newest fans, among a whole bunch of new fans after last night!
