The annual Oscar ceremony has become a four-hour ritual in which showbiz liberals such as Kevin Spacey and Casey Affleck hand trophies to people like Harvey Weinstein while viciously mocking conservatives and piously lecturing the rest of us about how much better Hollywood’s morals and standards are than ours.
Well, entertainment writer Kyle Smith of the New York Post has a modest proposal for this year’s Oscarcast: Cancel it. Spare us all the phony sanctimony and spare yourselves the embarrassment. Surely, people in Hollywood have more worthwhile things to do with their time than going to a big expensive party to congratulate themselves on their own moral superiority.
I know there will be objections to people who like to hold Oscar parties and take a drink of booze every time someone says “Trump,” but he makes a darn good argument. Hear him out.
