By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.hollywoodhifi.com)

Since I’m the resident showbiz historian, trivia expert and movie lover, it would normally fall to me to report on last night’s Oscarcast. But I didn’t watch it. And if I didn’t watch it, I can’t imagine who did.

Oh, I took a stab at it. But I only lasted until the end of the three-way monologue in which Regina Bell, Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer did lines about how sexist and racist Hollywood is (gee, it must be run by Republicans! Oh, wait...) and took a gratuitous swipe at Mitch McConnell (yeah, that’s who Americans are riled up at as they put their mortgage payments into their gas tanks – way to read the audience, ladies.) They ended by taunting viewers in Florida and chanting, “Gay, gay, gay,” proving that they not only didn’t understand what the NOT-“Don’t Say Gay” bill is, they also didn’t care if one of our most populous states immediately tuned out. Heck, I’m in Texas, and that’s the point where I switched to the “Hometown” marathon on HGTV.

By the way, were I writing their material, I wouldn’t be so eager to embrace the sexualizing of young children. Do you really want to remind the audience of what a hotbed of pedophilia Hollywood is? Or make us think about the former king of the Oscars, Harvey Weinstein, who’s currently doing a 23-year prison sentence for rape and facing additional charges? Since the holier-than-thou stars already seem to have forgotten about all that pesky MeToo business, here’s a reminder of it from Kyle Smith in 2018:

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/11/hollywood-sex-grooming-gang-les-moonves-harvey-weinstein/

I caught up with the rest of the show later through reviews and clips, and it’s obvious that as with most of this year’s movies, I didn’t miss anything worth seeing. The only major nominees I saw were “Lucy and Desi” (I liked them; didn’t like the movie) and “Nightmare Alley,” because my wife Laura is a film noir fan. It was a remake of someone else’s original that was lavishly produced, only gorier, more lurid, not as well written and 40 minutes longer than the original. So pretty much the standard Hollywood product these days. That’s why most of the movies I saw in theaters in the past year were TCM revivals.

There were all the expected genuflections to current liberal political obsessions like trans people; plus the usual dumb production decisions, like replacing the tech awards with an idiotic Twitter poll, having “who the heck is that?” presenters instead of actual movie stars, and showing disrespect for the “In Memoriam” honorees by turning it into a production number. If they were going to set it to music, why not “Take Me When I’m Gone to Forest Lawn”?

https://youtu.be/lnO5ZLlFWUM

But then the whole thing went permanently off the rails when Will Smith reacted to Chris Rock’s joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith by charging out of the audience and slapping Rock while twice yelling, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f---ing mouth!” That was bleeped on American TV, but went out over foreign broadcasts and is all over the Internet.

Instead of being arrested (and where was security, by the way?), Smith went back to his seat and was later rewarded with a Best Actor Oscar. He used his speech to cry, defend the assault as protecting his family, and apologize to the Academy (but not the guy he punched.) Several commentators noted that if it had been anyone else, he would have at least been removed if not arrested (and if he were white, charged with a hate crime), but certainly not rewarded and given an uninterrupted TV platform.

https://redstate.com/tladuke/2022/03/28/will-smith-got-his-feelings-hurt-at-the-oscars-and-hit-a-comic-now-come-the-real-jokes-n541904

Incidentally, far funnier than Rock’s joke was a CNN commentator’s attempt to blame Smith’s assault on – you guessed it -- Donald Trump.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-analyst-blames-trump-aftermath-will-smith-chris-rock-oscars-incident

Now, you might argue that Rock’s joke was tasteless or cruel (and it was), and Smith was being gallant in defending his wife. But it’s hard to claim that this is the most glamorous, sophisticated night of the year when the most memorable moment was a star having a meltdown and assaulting a comedian for telling a joke he didn’t like while shouting the F-word twice. It made a WWE Smackdown look sophisticated. And these people dare lecture the rest of us on how we’re supposed to behave because WE’RE not tolerant enough?

FYI: Please don’t claim that Will Smith is the exception. Here’s a story about Sally “The Flying Nun” Field threatening to physically assault Govs. Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott (who’s in a wheelchair, by the way) because she disagrees with their views on unfettered abortion and sexualizing kindergartens.

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2022/03/26/sally-field-if-i-see-ron-desantis-or-greg-abbott-i-cannot-be-responsible-for-what-i-would-do/

There’s a famous book called “Everything I Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten.” Judging from this year’s Oscars, today’s celebrities act as if they’re still in kindergarten, and the only things they’ve learned there so far are sex lessons and gender politics.

    I heard someplace that Chris Rock did not know that Will Smith's wife suffered from alopecia. Do you know if this was true? Your comments on the FL. erroneously named "Don't Say Gay" bill shows you just how everyone just believes what they hear or read on social platforms or from MSM. Recent interviews of several different people when asked about the rising gas prices offered that they believed it was Putin is the reason. Same with Prop 6 in CA a few years ago. It was originally called Stop The Gas Tax but at the last minute the state changed it to Highway Safety Act (or something like it). They ran TV ads showing hwy. construction would be stopped if it didn't pass and a retired CHP Commissioner was shown explaining how it was all about safety. He didn't tell the viewers that his retirement funds came from the Registration Fees that have increased dramatically since it failed to pass and gas taxes have gone up and up, as well. People are just ignorant and lazy!

    I stopped going to films; movie theater in 2016. I didn’t appreciate the comments from Joy Behar (The View); so I have not and will not watch that show until they remove her. The American people need top stop paying money to go see the movies where the actors are making the sinful political comments. We the American people pay their salaries and the only way to stop their arrogance is to stop paying to go to the movies and turn the channel on the news channel or tv show where those actors and media are on! I recommend they all move to another country who can appreciate their comments (Iran or Russia or even China. The saving grace is that God sees all things and hears all things! We the American People Ned to stop funding the woke actors and woke media. God Bless the United States ???? of America and God Bless the Greatest President of the United States; President Donald Trump. Thank you for your posted prayers ??

    Gov. Huckabee
    My Son, Chris is Permanently Disabled due to a Massive Brain Tumor, CVA, NF1, Moya Moya, and other issues as a Child and I(I am a Retired RNC from 2 Major Hospitals in the Charlotte area, and Eastern Airlines Agent for several years prior to Nursing. We live in a Beach area of South Carolina because this is where he wanted to be after several years. He is unable to drive r/t a Massive Brain Tumor at 4yo, A CVA, and other Severe Medical Issues. His original Medical Dx was "Go Blind and Die" at 4yrs. old. A few years ago he asked me to move us to the Beach where He, his Dad, and I came for many years. Since he does not drive due to being legally blind, we found him a place where we had previous second homes in Little River, S. C. that is Vital to him, he knows the area well, and we never had any problems. It is 5 minutes and a short taxi ride to his Dr.'s and everything he needs. Due to his Medical Issues and a Nursing Leg Injury for me, we had to have a ground Condo. We had a previous one as a second home without any problems. In Early March 2020 when Covid was rampant, the Virginia People upstairs in 306 came down, completely ignored the Governor's rules and recommendations. Everyone else in our area that we came in contact with was very respectful, followed all the rules, etc. One day I was at my car getting out groceries and turned around to the Virginia Family member literally in my face-I was so shocked I said Please do not do this, My son and I are Immunocompromised(I am a Bilateral Breast Cancer Survivor, and of course, he has many issues including some caused by the High Dose of Radiation he had r/t Medical Problems. I expected her to say I'm sorry. Instead she frowned, ran up stairs, and came back down 5 minutes later and did the same thing. A short time later, she and her father came loudly bounding down the stairs directly toward my Power Chair(I can walk short Distances) and if I had not whirled around fast, would have ran into me. Since that day, they have harassed us with Loud Bumping, Stomping, our Condo being flooded, and other Harassments either with their family, friends, or Air BNB Renters who it is obvious have been told to do so. I can see what it has done Physically and Mentally to my Son and his Service Dog, and I now, after having Normal Heart Rhythm, 120/70 BP, I have Afib due to the Extreme Anxiety this has caused(Primary Cause of afib). I am now retired and moving is no option. I asked the HOA President and HOA Mgmt Company to take care of this problem in April, 2020. HOA Mgmt. began it, HOA President stopped it after she Promised Assistance also with a Much needed Ramp which never happened and then stopped HOA Mgmt from assisting us in any way. The HOA VP told me shortly after that time that "If People knew what she has done as HOA President and otherwise, she would be in jail, though he said he just sit in the meetings and did nothing more. He is HOA President now, but has "Circled the Wagons" to protect, her, and the HOA Board. In the Meantime, Chris, Abby, his Service Dog, and I have suffered greatly because of their Evil. We are Good Christian People who Love the Lord, go out everyday and take a meal to a homeless person we see (although our funds are limited) Feed the Birds, Squirrels who are hungry. This area where we live has become a very Liberal area, the Condo 306 Owners, have contacts here who have contacts in many areas. The rules they are breaking(Noise, Harassment, etc. ) are stated very clearly in the HOA rules and I have them and the 306 Owners are breaking the rules while my Son, who is the kindest, gentle, and caring person you will ever meet on this Earth, rights as a Human Being and Handicapped Person, as well as mine are being greatly violated at the cost of our Medical Detriment and in Many ways. First and Foremost We need a Very Strong Prayer Chain/Prayers to stop this Evil. We also need someone in the S.C. State(to come and listen to our issues, advocate for us, Believe in Us, and solve the problems so We can have some Peace and Contentment in our Lives. Everything I have said and much more that I can share is True, So Help Me God, and I would be more than willing to take 100 Polygraphs to this fact. As a Mother and Nurse, It hurts me greatly to see the Son I flew literally around the world for to try to save his life, and for me since "it is just Chris, Abby(his Service Dog) and if something happens to me, Chris will have no one to fight for him. As a RNC-Triage Nurse for 2 Major Hospitals, I have Accolades from the Ceo, Managers, Supervisors, and most Importantly my Patients of my Excellent Efforts for my Patients. It saddens me greatly that I cannot help my Son solve this Evil-The Worst I have ever dealt with in my Lifetime. Please Help Us Acquire the People to Advocate for Us, listen to Us, and solve this Issue.

    Kinda strange that when you watch this junk that mr. smith was laughing quite loudly at mr. rock's joke until he gets the "look" from his gay/lesb(aka "sick") wife and then suddenly runs up and slaps mr. rock--this tells me mr. smith cared nothing about chivalry at all-that did NOT motivate him---what DID motivate him was the potential damage to his image--he needed the ire of his wife to spur him on--I suspect this marriage will be on the "rock"s within a few months--unless, of course if she is of the ilk of Hillary, who accepts infidelity for personal gain----

    Re: The Flying Nun--
    Wonder how this person would assess the issue had her mother been of the same ilk as she has turned out to be??? How would she feel if her mom had the same values and decided to abort her??--This whole issue seems to be about "Women's Rights'---oops! this is definitely NOT about that--it is about the rights(to life) of the unborn human(currently growing in the mother's womb)--that 'mother' made the choice to embark on the journey to procreate--they choose to end the life they made the decision to create--they should be held accountable for that life's viability--if they choose to end it, it is NO different than a robber ending the life of a store owner, or a homeowner or any other criminal ending the life of an innocent bystander--and they NEED to suffer the consequences of their premeditated actions. Those that would aid and abet these actions must be held accountable as well for their complicency in these actions----all the way up the chain of command in these united States.

    A wonderful summation of a show I didn't watch, nor have I in the past many years. I glad you watched it, so I wouldn't have to, but I am concerned that the time you watched it may have proven detrimental to your mental and overall health. That's not a shot at you, just a warning for next year, like the notice on cigarette packages.
    Seriously, you confirmed what I thought would be the general tone of the show, and further solidified my belief that that is virtually nothing of any redeeming value coming out of that place. Again, thanks for watching and you very fine report on the show. And for whatever it's worth, I don't care if Will Smith slapped Chris Rock or if any Hollywood type slaps or goes off on another Hollywood type. Just as long as they are going after each other.

    I can't condone Will Smith's actions. However, kids today find entertainment in verbally ripping one another to shreds. They think it is funny. They choose the most vulnerable targets to devour, and thus human life is being devalued at an alarming rate. Though Will Smith's action was not appropriate, in principle I applaud him. It is not okay to verbally assault anyone. The emotional toll is well-documented by the alarming rate of youth suicides. Someone has got to stand up and say stop! Enough! That is not okay! Will Smith did it inappropriately and counter-productively. The irony is the industry that produces & promotes violence, profanity & porn is actually feigning they are shocked and offended while secretly anticipating the bump in ratings in the same way the NFL was "shocked" about an infamous wardrobe malfunction.

    A wonderful summation of a show I didn't watch, nor have I in the past many years. I glad you watched it, so I wouldn't have to, but I am concerned that the time you watched it may have proven detrimental to your mental and overall health. That's not a shot at you, just a warning for next year, like the notice on cigarette packages.
    Seriously, you confirmed what I thought would be the general tone of the show, and further solidified my belief that that is virtually nothing of any redeeming value coming out of that place. Again, thanks for watching and you very fine report on the show. And for whatever it's worth, I don't care if Will Smith slapped Chris Rock or if any Hollywood type slaps or goes off on another Hollywood type. Just as long as they are going after each other.

    I can't condone Will Smith's actions. However, kids today find entertainment in verbally ripping one another to shreds. They think it is funny. They choose the most vulnerable targets to devour, and thus human life is being devalued at an alarming rate. Though Will Smith's action was not appropriate, in principle I applaud him. It is not okay to verbally assault anyone. The emotional toll is well-documented by the alarming rate of youth suicides. Someone has got to stand up and say stop! Enough! That is not okay! Will Smith did it inappropriately and counter-productively. The irony is the industry that produces & promotes violence, profanity & porn is actually feigning they are shocked and offended while secretly anticipating the bump in ratings in the same way the NFL was "shocked" about an infamous wardrobe malfunction.

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.hollywoodhifi.com)

Since I’m the resident showbiz historian, trivia expert and movie lover, it would normally fall to me to report on last night’s Oscarcast. But I didn’t watch it. And if I didn’t watch it, I can’t imagine who did.

Oh, I took a stab at it. But I only lasted until the end of the three-way monologue in which Regina Bell, Wanda Sykes and Amy Schumer did lines about how sexist and racist Hollywood is (gee, it must be run by Republicans! Oh, wait...) and took a gratuitous swipe at Mitch McConnell (yeah, that’s who Americans are riled up at as they put their mortgage payments into their gas tanks – way to read the audience, ladies.) They ended by taunting viewers in Florida and chanting, “Gay, gay, gay,” proving that they not only didn’t understand what the NOT-“Don’t Say Gay” bill is, they also didn’t care if one of our most populous states immediately tuned out. Heck, I’m in Texas, and that’s the point where I switched to the “Hometown” marathon on HGTV.

By the way, were I writing their material, I wouldn’t be so eager to embrace the sexualizing of young children. Do you really want to remind the audience of what a hotbed of pedophilia Hollywood is? Or make us think about the former king of the Oscars, Harvey Weinstein, who’s currently doing a 23-year prison sentence for rape and facing additional charges? Since the holier-than-thou stars already seem to have forgotten about all that pesky MeToo business, here’s a reminder of it from Kyle Smith in 2018:

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/11/hollywood-sex-grooming-gang-les-moonves-harvey-weinstein/

I caught up with the rest of the show later through reviews and clips, and it’s obvious that as with most of this year’s movies, I didn’t miss anything worth seeing. The only major nominees I saw were “Lucy and Desi” (I liked them; didn’t like the movie) and “Nightmare Alley,” because my wife Laura is a film noir fan. It was a remake of someone else’s original that was lavishly produced, only gorier, more lurid, not as well written and 40 minutes longer than the original. So pretty much the standard Hollywood product these days. That’s why most of the movies I saw in theaters in the past year were TCM revivals.

There were all the expected genuflections to current liberal political obsessions like trans people; plus the usual dumb production decisions, like replacing the tech awards with an idiotic Twitter poll, having “who the heck is that?” presenters instead of actual movie stars, and showing disrespect for the “In Memoriam” honorees by turning it into a production number. If they were going to set it to music, why not “Take Me When I’m Gone to Forest Lawn”?

https://youtu.be/lnO5ZLlFWUM

But then the whole thing went permanently off the rails when Will Smith reacted to Chris Rock’s joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith by charging out of the audience and slapping Rock while twice yelling, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f---ing mouth!” That was bleeped on American TV, but went out over foreign broadcasts and is all over the Internet.

Instead of being arrested (and where was security, by the way?), Smith went back to his seat and was later rewarded with a Best Actor Oscar. He used his speech to cry, defend the assault as protecting his family, and apologize to the Academy (but not the guy he punched.) Several commentators noted that if it had been anyone else, he would have at least been removed if not arrested (and if he were white, charged with a hate crime), but certainly not rewarded and given an uninterrupted TV platform.

https://redstate.com/tladuke/2022/03/28/will-smith-got-his-feelings-hurt-at-the-oscars-and-hit-a-comic-now-come-the-real-jokes-n541904

Incidentally, far funnier than Rock’s joke was a CNN commentator’s attempt to blame Smith’s assault on – you guessed it -- Donald Trump.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-analyst-blames-trump-aftermath-will-smith-chris-rock-oscars-incident

Now, you might argue that Rock’s joke was tasteless or cruel (and it was), and Smith was being gallant in defending his wife. But it’s hard to claim that this is the most glamorous, sophisticated night of the year when the most memorable moment was a star having a meltdown and assaulting a comedian for telling a joke he didn’t like while shouting the F-word twice. It made a WWE Smackdown look sophisticated. And these people dare lecture the rest of us on how we’re supposed to behave because WE’RE not tolerant enough?

FYI: Please don’t claim that Will Smith is the exception. Here’s a story about Sally “The Flying Nun” Field threatening to physically assault Govs. Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott (who’s in a wheelchair, by the way) because she disagrees with their views on unfettered abortion and sexualizing kindergartens.

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2022/03/26/sally-field-if-i-see-ron-desantis-or-greg-abbott-i-cannot-be-responsible-for-what-i-would-do/

There’s a famous book called “Everything I Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten.” Judging from this year’s Oscars, today’s celebrities act as if they’re still in kindergarten, and the only things they’ve learned there so far are sex lessons and gender politics.

    I heard someplace that Chris Rock did not know that Will Smith's wife suffered from alopecia. Do you know if this was true? Your comments on the FL. erroneously named "Don't Say Gay" bill shows you just how everyone just believes what they hear or read on social platforms or from MSM. Recent interviews of several different people when asked about the rising gas prices offered that they believed it was Putin is the reason. Same with Prop 6 in CA a few years ago. It was originally called Stop The Gas Tax but at the last minute the state changed it to Highway Safety Act (or something like it). They ran TV ads showing hwy. construction would be stopped if it didn't pass and a retired CHP Commissioner was shown explaining how it was all about safety. He didn't tell the viewers that his retirement funds came from the Registration Fees that have increased dramatically since it failed to pass and gas taxes have gone up and up, as well. People are just ignorant and lazy!

    I stopped going to films; movie theater in 2016. I didn’t appreciate the comments from Joy Behar (The View); so I have not and will not watch that show until they remove her. The American people need top stop paying money to go see the movies where the actors are making the sinful political comments. We the American people pay their salaries and the only way to stop their arrogance is to stop paying to go to the movies and turn the channel on the news channel or tv show where those actors and media are on! I recommend they all move to another country who can appreciate their comments (Iran or Russia or even China. The saving grace is that God sees all things and hears all things! We the American People Ned to stop funding the woke actors and woke media.

    Gov. Huckabee
    My Son, Chris is Permanently Disabled due to a Massive Brain Tumor, CVA, NF1, Moya Moya, and other issues as a Child and I(I am a Retired RNC from 2 Major Hospitals in the Charlotte area, and Eastern Airlines Agent for several years prior to Nursing. We live in a Beach area of South Carolina because this is where he wanted to be after several years. He is unable to drive r/t a Massive Brain Tumor at 4yo, A CVA, and other Severe Medical Issues. His original Medical Dx was "Go Blind and Die" at 4yrs. old. A few years ago he asked me to move us to the Beach where He, his Dad, and I came for many years. Since he does not drive due to being legally blind, we found him a place where we had previous second homes in Little River, S. C. that is Vital to him, he knows the area well, and we never had any problems. It is 5 minutes and a short taxi ride to his Dr.'s and everything he needs. Due to his Medical Issues and a Nursing Leg Injury for me, we had to have a ground Condo. We had a previous one as a second home without any problems. In Early March 2020 when Covid was rampant, the Virginia People upstairs in 306 came down, completely ignored the Governor's rules and recommendations. Everyone else in our area that we came in contact with was very respectful, followed all the rules, etc. One day I was at my car getting out groceries and turned around to the Virginia Family member literally in my face-I was so shocked I said Please do not do this, My son and I are Immunocompromised(I am a Bilateral Breast Cancer Survivor, and of course, he has many issues including some caused by the High Dose of Radiation he had r/t Medical Problems. I expected her to say I'm sorry. Instead she frowned, ran up stairs, and came back down 5 minutes later and did the same thing. A short time later, she and her father came loudly bounding down the stairs directly toward my Power Chair(I can walk short Distances) and if I had not whirled around fast, would have ran into me. Since that day, they have harassed us with Loud Bumping, Stomping, our Condo being flooded, and other Harassments either with their family, friends, or Air BNB Renters who it is obvious have been told to do so. I can see what it has done Physically and Mentally to my Son and his Service Dog, and I now, after having Normal Heart Rhythm, 120/70 BP, I have Afib due to the Extreme Anxiety this has caused(Primary Cause of afib). I am now retired and moving is no option. I asked the HOA President and HOA Mgmt Company to take care of this problem in April, 2020. HOA Mgmt. began it, HOA President stopped it after she Promised Assistance also with a Much needed Ramp which never happened and then stopped HOA Mgmt from assisting us in any way. The HOA VP told me shortly after that time that "If People knew what she has done as HOA President and otherwise, she would be in jail, though he said he just sit in the meetings and did nothing more. He is HOA President now, but has "Circled the Wagons" to protect, her, and the HOA Board. In the Meantime, Chris, Abby, his Service Dog, and I have suffered greatly because of their Evil. We are Good Christian People who Love the Lord, go out everyday and take a meal to a homeless person we see (although our funds are limited) Feed the Birds, Squirrels who are hungry. This area where we live has become a very Liberal area, the Condo 306 Owners, have contacts here who have contacts in many areas. The rules they are breaking(Noise, Harassment, etc. ) are stated very clearly in the HOA rules and I have them and the 306 Owners are breaking the rules while my Son, who is the kindest, gentle, and caring person you will ever meet on this Earth, rights as a Human Being and Handicapped Person, as well as mine are being greatly violated at the cost of our Medical Detriment and in Many ways. First and Foremost We need a Very Strong Prayer Chain/Prayers to stop this Evil. We also need someone in the S.C. State(to come and listen to our issues, advocate for us, Believe in Us, and solve the problems so We can have some Peace and Contentment in our Lives. Everything I have said and much more that I can share is True, So Help Me God, and I would be more than willing to take 100 Polygraphs to this fact. As a Mother and Nurse, It hurts me greatly to see the Son I flew literally around the world for to try to save his life, and for me since "it is just Chris, Abby(his Service Dog) and if something happens to me, Chris will have no one to fight for him. As a RNC-Triage Nurse for 2 Major Hospitals, I have Accolades from the Ceo, Managers, Supervisors, and most Importantly my Patients of my Excellent Efforts for my Patients.

    re: will smith--
    Kinda strange that when you watch this junk that mr. smith was laughing quite loudly at mr. rock's joke until he gets the "look" from his gay/lesb(aka "sick") wife and then suddenly runs up and slaps mr. rock--this tells me mr. smith cared nothing about chivalry at all-that did NOT motivate him---what DID motivate him was the potential damage to his image--he needed the ire of his wife to spur him on--I suspect this marriage will be on the "rock"s within a few months--unless, of course if she is of the ilk of Hillary, who accepts infidelity for personal gain----

    Re: The Flying Nun--
    Wonder how this person would assess the issue had her mother been of the same ilk as she has turned out to be??? How would she feel if her mom had the same values and decided to abort her??--This whole issue seems to be about "Women's Rights'---oops! this is definitely NOT about that--it is about the rights(to life) of the unborn human(currently growing in the mother's womb)--that 'mother' made the choice to embark on the journey to procreate--they choose to end the life they made the decision to create--they should be held accountable for that life's viability--if they choose to end it, it is NO different than a robber ending the life of a store owner, or a homeowner or any other criminal ending the life of an innocent bystander--and they NEED to suffer the consequences of their premeditated actions. Those that would aid and abet these actions must be held accountable as well for their complicency in these actions----all the way up the chain of command in these united States.

    I can't condone Will Smith's actions. However, kids today find entertainment in verbally ripping one another to shreds. They think it is funny. They choose the most vulnerable targets to devour, and thus human life is being devalued at an alarming rate. Though Will Smith's action was not appropriate, in principle I applaud him. It is not okay to verbally assault anyone. The emotional toll is well-documented by the alarming rate of youth suicides. Someone has got to stand up and say stop! Enough! That is not okay! Will Smith did it inappropriately and counter-productively.

    Kinda strange that when you watch this junk that mr. smith was laughing quite loudly at mr. rock's joke until he gets the "look" from his gay/lesb(aka "sick") wife and then suddenly runs up and slaps mr. rock--this tells me mr. smith cared nothing about chivalry at all-that did NOT motivate him---what DID motivate him was the potential damage to his image--he needed the ire of his wife to spur him on--I suspect this marriage will be on the "rock"s within a few months--unless, of course if she is of the ilk of Hillary, who accepts infidelity for personal gain----

    Re: The Flying Nun--
    Wonder how this person would assess the issue had her mother been of the same ilk as she has turned out to be??? How would she feel if her mom had the same values and decided to abort her??--This whole issue seems to be about "Women's Rights'---oops! this is definitely NOT about that--it is about the rights(to life) of the unborn human(currently growing in the mother's womb)--that 'mother' made the choice to embark on the journey to procreate--they choose to end the life they made the decision to create--they should be held accountable for that life's viability--if they choose to end it, it is NO different than a robber ending the life of a store owner, or a homeowner or any other criminal ending the life of an innocent bystander--and they NEED to suffer the consequences of their premeditated actions. Those that would aid and abet these actions must be held accountable as well for their complicency in these actions----all the way up the chain of command in these united States.

    Spot on! No Oscars any more for us for the past few years. Elitist group who are always sure they're right.

    I can’t help but wonder why you say “you like” Whoopi Goldberg.
    As for the oscars which I haven’t watched since the early 1970’s, but from what I hear and just read in your email, it is nothing more than a no class idiotic reality show.
    Sally Field, just another fool follower.

    Pat Reeder did an excellent job with his commentary on the Oscars. I appreciated the thoughtful analysis and am grateful for his efforts. Keep up the great work!

    A wonderful summation of a show I didn't watch, nor have I in the past many years. I glad you watched it, so I wouldn't have to, but I am concerned that the time you watched it may have proven detrimental to your mental and overall health. That's not a shot at you, just a warning for next year, like the notice on cigarette packages.
    Seriously, you confirmed what I thought would be the general tone of the show, and further solidified my belief that that is virtually nothing of any redeeming value coming out of that place. Again, thanks for watching and you very fine report on the show. And for whatever it's worth, I don't care if Will Smith slapped Chris Rock or if any Hollywood type slaps or goes off on another Hollywood type. Just as long as they are going after each other.

    I can't condone Will Smith's actions. However, kids today find entertainment in verbally ripping one another to shreds. They think it is funny. They choose the most vulnerable targets to devour, and thus human life is being devalued at an alarming rate. Though Will Smith's action was not appropriate, in principle I applaud him. It is not okay to verbally assault anyone. The emotional toll is well-documented by the alarming rate of youth suicides. Someone has got to stand up and say stop! Enough! That is not okay! Will Smith did it inappropriately and counter-productively. The irony is the industry that produces & promotes violence, profanity & porn is actually feigning they are shocked and offended while secretly anticipating the bump in ratings in the same way the NFL was "shocked" about an infamous wardrobe malfunction.
