Today’s Social Justice tantrum concerns the Academy Award nominations. Apparently, not enough non-white people received nomination.
- Variety: “Black Actors Shut Out of Oscar Race — Again”
- People: “Actors of Color Shut Out by Academy: Oscars Under Fire for Lack of Diversity Again”
- Vox: “Oscars 2016: The nominees are blindingly white. Again.”
- USA Today: “Oscars: Acting races are an all-white field”
It really doesn’t surprise me that the Culture of the Participation Trophy has decided that Academy Awards are an entitlement. They should just hand out Oscars to everybody, like the high school that had 117 valedictorians.
BTW, in this era of gender equality, why are there still separate categories for Best Actor andBest Actress.
Not very progressive, if you ask me.
