If there is one major reason why the average person cannot stand Hollywood culture, it would be the widespread arrogance. Viola Davis won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and, when on stage accepting her award, said something so stunning, it’s hard to imagine anybody could think of such a thing!
Davis was great in the movie “Fences,” for which she won the award for. Movies are a great expression of art and can often be beautiful. But there’s no excuse for the nonsense the people involved in movies spout. Here is what Davis said during her acceptance speech:
Thank you Academy. You know, there’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered. One place. And that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time: ‘What kind of stories do you want to tell Viola?’ And I say exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed big, and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist and thank God I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.
This is just insane. What it means to live a life? What about doctors? Or teachers? Or police officers? What about career military men and women? What about missionaries?
Don’t they live full lives?
I am sorry but this kind of thinking is what separates people like “them” from people like “us” and they don’t even realize it. And then they’ll act clueless when news like this breaks:
BREAKING: Oscars ratings on ABC averaged 32.9 million, least-viewed broadcast since 2008

Do you think the Hollywood community is hopelessly disconnected from reality? If so, share this because it certainly proves that point of view.
