I don't watch the Oscars and haven't seen any of the recent crop of Oscar-worthy films, but this story is so rich in irony that I felt I had to share it. Bear with me.
Frances McDormand’s Alleged Oscar Thief Arrested
Oscar winner Frances McDormand's acceptance speech included a phrase "inclusion rider" that is going to become a household term. She put out a call for fellow actors to insist that an inclusion rider be put in their contracts that would reflect real demographics, i.e., women, minorities, LGBTQ, disabled, etc..
Wouldn't you know that mere hours later, her Oscar would be "allegedly" stolen by an entitled minority who felt it was his.
Oh, the irony.
Frances, welcome to my world. I live awash in diversity 24/7/365. I don't live in a gated community and I don't have armed security on my payroll.
And you and your ilk want to take my guns away?
Dream on, Frances.

The irony of the oscars and the filthy rich, spoiled, indulged, beautiful people who troop in to collect their $100K swag bags isn't lost on anyone, and it's why the ratings tanked.
LL: Their ratings have been tanking for a long time, but they're not accountants looking at the bottom line, they're 'artistes' who double down on stupid. I thought the irony was too rich to bypass.
great example of the idiucymthat is Tinseltown. I haven't watched it since they were all "aware of AIDS" whatever that meant.
I can't stand Hollyweird types. I've also never seen this woman before. Imagine that.
Have a fabulous day. ♥
Jan: You're right. I never wanted you to inject yourself into the Hollyweierd culture. I was just commenting on the oh so lushish irony of the Oscar winner having her award stolen by the very folks she is reverending for.
Sometimes what goes around comes around fast enough for anyone to see. Not often, but sometimes.
Missymimi: For a long time, I have found you to be a very fine moral center for me, and I realise that I've never thanked you for that. Thank you for that, friend.
and the Oscar goes to... awesome. He deserves to get 3 years if for nothing more than for being caught by a paparazzi.
DaBlade: The entitled nutball plead not guilty. He was caught on video kissing the thing for crying out loud!
