Awards For Trash

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 24, 2018

         AWARDS SEASON IS IN HIGH GEAR AS LIBERAL FILM MAKERS GIVE EACH OTHER STATUES AND THE WINNERS GET TO MAKE ANTI-TRUMP AND ANTI-REPUBLICAN SPEECHES IN AN ORGY OF SELF-GRATIFICATION.

         NEXT UP ARE THE SAG-AFTRA AWARDS. THE COMBINED UNIONS OF THE SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AND AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TELEVISION AND RADIO ARTISTS IS ABOUT TO HOLD ITS ANNUAL AFFAIR. THERE ARE SOME GOOD CANDIDATES, SUCH AS “THE CROWN,” BUT THERE ARE MORE REALLY BAD ONES.

         I WATCHED ONE OF THE FILMS PRAISED BY CRITICS. IT’S CALLED “THREE BILLBOARDS” AND IS ABOUT A WOMAN SEEKING REVENGE FOR THE RAPE AND MURDER OF HER DAUGHTER. THE POLICE HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL IN FINDING THE RAPIST AND MURDERER SO THE WOMAN BUYS ADS ON THREE BILLBOARDS TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE COPS.

         WHAT DISTURBED ME WAS THE TSUNAMI OF FOUL LANGUAGE AND BLASPHEMIES, INCLUDING BEFORE CHILDREN. DOES HOLLYWOOD REALLY THINK PEOPLE TALK THIS WAY? MAYBE HARVEY WEINSTEIN DOES, BUT I’LL BET STEPHEN SPIELBERG DOESN’T. THE FILM DISGUSTED ME, BUT IT PROBABLY WON’T DISGUST THE HOLLYWOOD COMMUNITY THAT APPARETLY BELIEVES SUCH TALK IS COOL. I WON’T BE WATCHING THE AWARDS SHOW. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
