Virtue-Signaling Reigns at Wokest Oscars Ceremony Ever

''The Oscars have proven once again that they have no idea what they’re doing...'

(DailyMail) Film fans have blasted this year’s Oscars ceremony as the ‘wokest ever’ after virtue-signaling stars used the platform to remind viewers of all the injustices in the world – before Anthony Hopkins was attacked for winning the best actor award above (a black American, the late) Chadwick Boseman.

Award host Regina King had kicked off the night by hailing the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, director Travon Free showed off a jacket emblazoned with the named of black people killed by police on the red carpet and Mia Neal then spoke about ‘breaking the glass ceiling’ for trans and minority ethnic people in her acceptance speech for best hair and makeup.

After years of criticism over racial diversity, Chloe Zhao then become the first Asian woman and only the second woman ever to win best director for Nomadland, British actor Daniel Kaluuya won best supporting actor for Judas and the Black Messiah, and 73-year-old South Korean Youn Yuh-jung won best supporting actress for Minari.

Many then figured that the night would end with a posthumous award for Boseman, after the ‘best actor’ category was switched to last in the billing instead of the traditional ‘best picture’.

But instead the award went to Hopkins, who broke the record for oldest best actor winner at 83 for his portrayal of a man with dementia in The Father – causing fury among viewers who declared he had ‘stolen’ it.

‘Chadwick Boseman was robbed,’ one furious viewer tweeted, before another added: ‘The Oscars have proven once again that they have no idea what they’re doing.’

But others were quick to defend Hopkins – who honored Boseman in his video acceptance speech – saying he had delivered ‘the single best performance of his entire career.’…Original Source
