Mortensen: Oscar Nominations ‘A Racket’


Viggo Mortensen is not far from being wrong, the Oscar nominations are a ‘racket’ and two things happen this past week that highlights it even more: First we saw The Academy Awards shooting itself in the foot to appease the Social Justice Movement. The second thing was The Academy Awards deciding to rig their own voting process so that next years the Oscar for best actor/actress does not go to someone who deserves it but to a token actor of color. Everyone viewing the ceremony from now on will automatically assume affirmative action when a black actor wins, totally devaluing their achievement, well done assholes. If people are now forced to vote for minorities it removes the purpose to vote for merit and the best movie. Tokenism does not equal diversity…
