Oscars for the wrong films

This video is about one of the rather rare instances when United States governmental crimes were mentioned during the Oscar awards ceremony in Hollywood: Michael Moore attacking George W. Bush because of the Iraq war in his Academy Award acceptance speech.

This year’s Academy Awards ceremony was a spectacle of banality and cowardice. The most highly rewarded films, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Inglourious Basterds, embody something retrograde and foul in the film industry, and all fly under false flags: here.

Following in the wake of the Oscar-winning war movie The Hurt Locker comes Green Zone, an all-action thriller set in Iraq that doesn’t try to fool the public with patriotic baloney: here. A more critical review of that film is here.

“Of the academy’s 43-member board of governors, 6 are women…Cheryl Boone Isaacs is the sole person of color”: here.

Oscar Psychology: Why Celebrities Fascinate Us: here.

The crisis of American filmmaking & cultural life: here. Part 2 is here.
