The Golden Globe Awards are tonight. Not that anybody outside of the Los Angeles area cares. But Hollywood is filled with a sense of foreboding.
Welcome to the club kids.
Most of America has been filled with a sense of foreboding for the last eight years.
The Associated Press’ film writer Jake Coyle asks this hard-hitting question: Will Hollywood be in the Mood to Party at the Golden Globes?
Golly! I sure hope so!
How will I ever survive if Hollywood isn’t in the mood to party?!
The election of Donald Trump has loomed over this year’s awards season, where the movie industry’s usual self-congratulatory toasting has been mixed with a foreboding sense of dread.
My heart just bleeds for them.
I realize these guys think the world revolves around them. But come on.
The only reason Donald Trump is “looming” over the Golden Globes is because these spoiled children are letting him live rent-free in their heads.
How is that our problem?
The AP article goes on:
“We are living in very troubled times,” Kenneth Lonergan, writer and director of one of the season’s favorites, “Manchester by the Sea,” said Wednesday at the National Board of Review Awards. “How troubled, we don’t know yet. It’s going to be a lot of trouble, or it might be bad trouble like we’ve never seen.”
That must be why consumer confidence has risen for the first time in over a decade. Because we’re all headed toward “troubled times.”
Sheesh. These people.
Though to be fair, it might be “bad trouble” for Hollywood.
Americans are getting sick and tired of giving time, money and attention to a bunch of whiny, self-important snots whose disdain for half the country is strikingly similar to that of their losing candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As Kyle Smith puts it over at the New York Post:
At the Golden Globes Sunday night, and the Oscars next month, expect lots of gold-plated bitching about Donald Trump. Honorees will mourn the “dark times in America” in their $20,000 frocks. Or they’ll mutter “fight the fascists” as they head back to their Malibu estates.
Does Hollywood even notice how much America mocks them for their self-important drivel?
Michael Shannon — General Zod in “Man of Steel” — joined fellow actors Debra Messing and Rosie O’Donnell in signing an open letter published in The New York Times exhorting, “Fill the streets of DC with millions, millions more demonstrate in every major city and small town all over US and the world, demanding that Trump-Pence be prevented from taking office before January 20.” It was an open call for mob rule to overturn the results of an election. And somehow Trump is the fascist?
The more hysterical they get, the less we take them seriously.
Celebrities have every right to say what they think, including the remarkably dumb things they think, and if they want to turn their backs on half of America, their diminished relevance and pay is of little concern to the rest of us.
Possibly the craving of performers to be taken seriously is understandable when you consider how intellectually insecure they can be.
Something tells me that the only people worried about the “mood” at the Golden Globes will be the self-absorbed idiots attending.
The rest of us really don’t give a damn.
On a side note. If you haven’t seen it yet, this Townhall parody of Hollywood stars’ self-importance is pure genius.
