I think what you mean is that Art should speak for itself?
No...more that—acknowledging it’s just a dopey awards show with pretty people giving each other trophies—that acceptance speeches touching on what movies can mean and do is more valuable to me than whatever cause might be rattling around a celebrity’s head.
Art metaphorically mirrors the human condition in all aspects, inviting us to reflect, learn and grow. I don't care for overt political commentary in arts awards either but Pitt didn't go overboard. You're missing the point of Phoenix's speech (perhaps intentionally?): he talked about egocentrism, social inequality/systemic inequality and cancel culture -- underlying themes in his film. Animal cruelty is an extension of that.
I found Pitt talking about John Bolton and Phoenix talking about how we steal milk from cows annoying. No problem if you didn't. I did like his shot against the cancel culture.
Know your audience.
So, you’re saying that there are some boobs after all?
Thanks for the recommendation re: 1917. I’m definitely going to try and see it this weekend.
1917 was an excellent movie. If you like war movies it's a must-see. The Academy Awards show is a complete joke. The ratings were down 20 percent lol. I love it. I hate awards shows. I have no interest what so ever in what billionaire pedophile rapist actors have to say about politics or anything for that matter. They are a bunch of hypocrites. Do as I say. Not as I do. They whine about global warming and then fly around on their private jets.
You should see someone about your problem.
Lowest rated Oscar show of all time. Couldn’t happen to a more pretentious, self-righteous group of pole smokers. Yes, please go on about your sheltered political stances and talk down your nose at me before retiring to your lush, massive, gated community mansion in the Hollywood Hills.
Actually yeah I do.
Good that’s all that matters.
Hollyweird's hypocrisy never ends. Another place you can see that is in their over-the-top use of gun violence in their movies while at the same time promoting less guns. If anyone has had a major influence on the desensitizing of our young people to gun violence it's Hollyweird, not the NRA.
In the case of Phoenix, of course I don't know for sure but I get the feeling that he lives by those words he used.
Video games are a much greater culprit re. desensitizing young people. "Hollyweird" polices itself, most highly violent films are rate R barring access to those under 17 not accompanied by an adult. Where the NRA deserves blame is lobbying against common-sense measures like red flag laws and background checks.
Eh..fair amount of “plundering of the natural world” here, I’d say...
I mean...you’ve got to spend your hundreds of millions on something, so I don’t think we should fault him for having a nice house.
I understand that he’s a bit preachy about his beliefs, but he was brought up in a really strange household where they’ve been practicing some of that stuff for years, so he’s definitely the real deal.
There is nothing common sense about red flag laws. liberal anti gun judges psychiatrist and politicians deciding who gets to have a gun. No, thank you. go NRA go.
The NRA hierarchy have done their members no favors as of late. Making deals with Russian spies, stealing from the association. Currently they have been selling insurance to their members without a license. Typical of people chasing $$$ rather than looking out for their constituents who deserve better.
I don't really follow the personal lives of actors. I thought that he could have been sincere about what he eats.
