This year’s Oscars is riddled in controversy, or perhaps fauxtroversy is a better word.
Left wing activists are boycotting the event because all the nominees are white. However, most of these people will be voting in the all white Democratic primary.
The recent Oscar nominee luncheon has added more fuel to the boycott fire. The picture highlights the lack of diversity among the nominees. Now, the boycotters have a visual to prove their point.
This is an amusing situation as it has the left eating itself. Hollywood types always seem to want to push affirmative action and quotas on other aspects of American life, but when it comes time to hand out awards, they don’t want to live by the standards they believe should be placed on us. Hypocrisy much?
Lady Gaga is one of this years nominees. Fresh off a fantastic Super Bowl performance, the super star had an emotional time at the luncheon. This year, she has redefined herself and it is being noticed. Check out the video below to hear about her nomination.
