Al Sharpton Calls Emergency Meeting Because He Didn’t Like the Oscar Nominations

Al Sharpton has apparently moved on from Ferguson, New York, and any other place he’s been protesting lately, and has decided to call immediate emergency attention to the great crisis of the moment.

What is that great crisis? The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and no black people or “people of color” were nominated for any acting awards. The Reverend Al is quite upset. Quite. Upset.

This man is upset about an awards ceremony for rich liberals.

The problem is, the Reverend Al is upset with the rich Hollywood liberals who chose these nominees. From the Oscars website:

Nomination ballots are mailed to the Academy’s active members in late December and are due back to PricewaterhouseCoopers, an international accounting firm, in January.

Regular awards are presented for outstanding individual or collective film achievements in up to 25 categories. Members from each of the branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. However, within the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominations are selected by vote of multi-branch screening committees.

All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.

This smells like another shakedown in progress. For the record, “Selma” was selected as a Best Picture nominee (it tells the story of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s voting rights march in 1965), which made the Reverend Al happy, at least.

Said Sharpton: “The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling and while it is good that Selma was nominated for ‘Best Picture,’ it’s ironic that they nominated a story about the racial shutout around voting while there is a racial shutout around the Oscar nominations. With all of the talent in Selma and other Black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history.”

So…. the new line is that rich liberal Hollywood is full of racists. And Al Sharpton isn’t the only person or group to think so.

External factors have NOTHING to do with it. The answer is always RACISM to those who want to be offended.

I’m thinking that some people need better hobbies in life than worrying over who gets voted prom king and queen of Hollywood on Oscar night. And we know that Al Sharpton needs some money. No better way to get a quick buck than guilting rich Hollywood liberals into giving him some in return for not calling them racists.

However, I’m glad to know that Al Sharpton considers all his other big issues solved. Or not. Protesting costs money, you know.

    Oh geez Louise!!! On the recent Golden Globes, it was nominated for three awards…won on theme song, I believe. Of course, this film is a Queen Oprah pet project, so there were high hopes….sarc/off

    The Hollywood sign should look dazzling at night when it’s in flames.

    Alrighty then: let’s make sports teams match the demographics of their home cities.

    The Beverly Hills therapists are going to be swamped with whiteguiltaphrenia patients soon. Al can hold court while they all bow before him and beg his forgiveness (then open their wallets for redemption).
