The Anti Oscars 2017: the preliminaries.

Actors have lent themselves to all sorts of political messages in the past, but the 2016 presidential election saw an assault from Hollywood worthy of a WW2 movie. Actors lined up to participate

PARTICIPATE

Participate. In videos. About the dangers. Of putting Donald Trump. Into the White House.

He doesn’t belong there.

He’s not fit to hold the office.

He’s the Devil!!!

At the very least, he’s Hitler.

He’s cruel to kittens!

Those celebrity PSA’s are very easy to ridicule. Pomposity and sermonising usually are.

Traditionally the response has been a shrug of the shoulders. That’s showbiz! And life was got on with. But in 2016 the lectured-to demographic finally decided it had had enough. The time had come to give some back.

There were signs that a backlash was coming. Answering fire was first seen in this response to Demand A Plan.

That was back in 2012. The Hollywood Hypocrites went quiet for a while after that… but last year they cranked up the sanctimony up to 11.

And this is what they got in return.

Putting this post together has been the most fun I’ve had in a long time.
