Social Justice comes for the Hellmouth

 And even the wokest of the woke actors and actresses are not at all happy about the new requirements for the Academy Awards:

To be eligible for Best Picture, films must meet any TWO of the following FOUR criteria. 

1. ON-SCREEN REPRESENTATION

This standard can be met by fulfilling any ONE of these:

  • Lead actor or significant supporting actor from an ethnic minority group
  • At least 30 per cent of smaller roles are played by women, LGBT people, disabled people or ethnic minorities 
  • The main storyline is centered on an under-represented group

2. CREATIVE LEADERSHIP

This standard can be met by fulfilling any ONE of these: 

  •  At least two senior creative posts, such as casting director, make-up artist or producer, are from an under-represented group including women
  • At least six smaller roles in the crew are filled by ethnic minorities
  • At least 30 per cent of the film's total crew is from an under-represented group 

3. INDUSTRY ACCESS

This standard can be met by fulfilling BOTH of these: 

  • Studios and distributors must have paid interns or apprentices who are women or come from minority groups
  • Training opportunities must be offered to under-represented groups in production, distribution and financing

4. AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT 

This standard can be met by fulfilling this ONE requirement:

  •  Multiple senior executives in publicity, marketing and distribution are women or minority groups 

I doubt they're particularly concerned about the Best Picture requirements as such, but rather the way the diversity rules are inevitably going to filter down until even the likes of Sharknado vs Predator II are subject to them. Needless to say, Viral Films Media will be not hesitate to violate all of them with unabashed impunity.

So basically only non-white people made films are eligible for best picture now.

Are there any other kind now? I've watched about two new movies in the last decade, but from the promos I see online, it appears that white men have been pretty well purged from the movies already except for some villains. The few remaining were grandfathered in, like RDJr as Tony Stark, but that's over now too. Or Hamill and Ford in Star Wars, who were only there so their characters could be assassinated. It looks to me like the studio movies already easily meet these criteria, which is unsurprising.

Since getting into watching bad movies thanks to Red Letter Media, one thing I like about them is the refreshing lack of political correctness. You'll see things in them that you won't see from Hollywood, like loathsome women, criminal blacks, and intact all-white families.

Sean Avery, former NHL player and now professional actor, provided some interesting insights on a recent podcast about what it's like to be a white male actor these days. Not surprisingly, it has been a struggle but he's a fighter (both literally and figuratively) and managed to land a role in Tenet, apparently the most anticipated movie of the year.

Granted, Avery's role is small, and the lead actor is a black dude.

Open up, make room for me
Now open up, make room for me

Lose myself, inside your schemes

Be a movie star, blah blah blah
Go the whole hog, be bigger than God

For the artistic vision that Pedowood supposedly strives for, to increase stringent regulations of this kind at this moment is basically exsanguination by way of ropes and pulleys.

Movies like 'Sharknado' get made with endless sequels when Orson Welles couldn't get sufficient funding for his projects for 40 years...no one pays to see them, as they aren't released to the cinema, no one is paying to watch them on streaming services, where is the money coming from and where is it going?

In all fairness to Bollywood, they seem to create generally happy and positive movies that either satirize Hollywood templates (e.g. DaBang 2.
The tagline: "Here Comes Chabul Pandy", a cop with a mustache, mirrored sunglasses and giant revolver) or just have people dancing and breaking into song for no discernible reason.

Blogger Chip Hazard September 09, 2020 10:42 AM

Exactly. To ask such a question was to answer it, of course, but you've brought it into laser-sharp focus. These tax scams have been going on since, well, let's say 2001 (in the current format), the IRS and the Feds ignored them in favor of going after us. I suppose they're putting money into the pockets of the Feds. I already KNOW the military is getting taken care of on the back end.

I ignore all movies now. I like older films like French 60's films and American Noir. I stick with what I like and forgo the rest. I read a lot of books, and I still like Mickey Spillane, who claimed "I write garbage but at least it's good garbage."

Blogger Captain Atom September 09, 2020 10:47 AM  

Since they cleverly included white wimmenz as an oppressed category, this really doesn't change a whole lot. Most of publicity, costuming, make-up, casting, etc. are already dominated by them. This is more cementing a sinecure then any type of change. White women have been the gate-keepers of publishing/screenwriting for decades, it's already their ghetto, this just codifies it.

It really pisses them off when someone like Christopher Nolan sneaks by and becomes acclaimed making movies like Dunkirk, movies that they can't even begin to comprehend. Like the Scarecrow in Oz, women operate on credentialism and believe giving themselves awards will prove they have creative talent.

Blogger Keith September 09, 2020 10:49 AM  

They should add a fifth category that mimics the corporate world where they create an entire new team on the film filled with make-work roles deliberately given to minorities and paid enormously well. Initially that category’s responsibility is to stay out of the way but over time those crew members get nosier and start telling the other teams how to do their jobs

The last movie I saw in the theater was Norman (2017), with Richard Gere. I loved it but not for everyone. In the US the Movies Channel on broadcast TV has noir on Thursdays and Sundays. They have ads and may be edited for length.

I'm... not seeing what the difference is. Most of that is already in play, even for trash movies. Just finding a movie that doesn't have a minimally token black... often a small herd of them... despite having nothing to do with that, is nearly impossible. Finding one that doesn't have that OR is on the woke preachy side?

What is the difference. I quit movies, mostly, about when I cut cords, which was about when I cut sports. I am not missing any of it, really. I do look through batches, from Amazon prime, from time to time. A movie or two a month, after culling dozens of them for said reasons. I can cut that too.

Actually, Amazon prime has made woke and groid commercials impossible to skip, so I just dump some movies without ever having reviewed. I won't watch groids being shoved at me. Done!

Yep, Redlettermedia has actually done industry investigations because of the absurdly bad hollyweird movies, given they review the 'trash' as well.

For a couple years I was living in an unfriendly town, which gave me spare time. Every day I went for a walk and bought a bargain bin movie. Got a huge collection, over 400, and when it came time to pare down and part ways I copied about 150 as keepers. Some mega-gems. "Land of the Blind" for example, describes the world that the left wants, and what that would really look like. I shouldn't have bothered, it's free on gootube because the industry spat it out.

No one watches. Why do the "Classics" play well all over the world? Because they glamorize the lifestyle and wealth and power of Euro-descended people.

Black Panther is something new? Blade was 20 years previous. And no hollyweird creature will ever write a more effective female lead, than Ellen Ripley. You can't force some things. For "Alien" to work, Tom Skerrit had to be the lead for the first act. Ripley defied him, and had to take over after he died. Was she talking about an alien infestation or her film producer bosses?

"I wonder what happens when India takes over the American film market like Japan has taken over the cartoon television market..."

They are certainly primed to do so. Like I pointed out, I defy anyone to not look at the poster for "DaBang 2" (and it's a sequel. They even may have a DaBang3!!) and not genuinely laugh.

I laughed in derision when I thought it was for real. Then I looked it up and it's a comedy. I laughed harder. It was ridiculous and even the dotheads who made it know that.

I'm pretty red-pilled and even I said, I might actually see that if it was made available to me for free. Entertainment is all I'm asking for. I don't look deeper into movies unless it's a technical or artistic aspect I'm interested in.

I haven't see a movie in the theater since the re-release of Lawrence of Arabia last year. Before that it was the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek The Motion Picture*.

(*Incidentally, at that event I violently shoved a hipster at the concession stand- he was getting in my personal space, trying to be 'aggressive', boy, did he figure he was ill-equipped - and I threatened to kick his ass if he didn't STFU. I spent the entire movie wondering when the cops were going to come in an arrest me for assault & battery. Needless to say I did not enjoy myself during the show. I was not arrested (no cops came) but I let it be a warning to myself not to engage these people).

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 09, 2020 3:24 PM

Naturally. They're not into making things harder for themselves. They just wanted credit for what they're already doing. Now when they do awards, they'll point out that movie X meets criteria 1, 3, and 4, and pat themselves on the back for going above and beyond.

And it'll give them an excuse for rejecting movies from outside the system. If you're a smaller, independent studio, you can't afford to have a bunch of extra interns or senior executives hanging around to spend your diversity points on.

Readbeard,

"I await for these SWJs to start applying themselves to the music industry."

Uhrm, what music are you listening too? Man, I hit everything from folk, country, rock, metal, alt... everything save black almost anything, to exclude wigger. And it's everywhere. Even if I like a singer, doesn't mean they haven't gone full groid loving or white hate. I even like a few black(or blackish) singers. But... it's so steeped in teh stupid I am careful what I listen to... ready to yank it, even lose a singer or group if I find they just had one decent, the rest antifa style.

I for one look forward to a category only having student films that qualify. That may actually stand a chance of finishing off the award show.

What about all the other Wogs? The BBC’s negeophilia has not America’s non-excuse of living with a large “black sheep” population for centuries. What are they doing filming episodes about Rosa Parks? That’s disrespectful to Pakis and other oppressed “Asians.”

Who was the Rosa Parks of Pakis, anyway?

Non-Western movies usually are marginally red-pilled. Difficult not to be, considering all that’s required is to retain a bit of traditional folk knowledge. Hollywood purges such things with demonic diligence. But even so short as five or ten years back you can see a lot more of if in native fare.

If I have a hard time believing Americans could ever get into Indian culture and movie aesthetics enough for Bollywood to dominate, well, I wouldn’t have thought we’d ever be so into Japanese culture.

Maybe we’re not, but simply get by in exchange for what some of us consider entertainment worth the effort.

Typical Indian (Hindi) culture is far too weird for the Western mind to accept at large. However in terms of mindless entertainment, it fires one across the bow if one isn't too demanding in terms of continuity or plot.

I could find mounds of objectionable material in the works of Hitchcock, Welles, or even Capra if I put my mind to it.

We have to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff, and things that don't matter from the things that do. The works of Dante, Milton, Joyce, Woolf, Hemingway, Tolkien and yes, Spillane.

Even the works of Rockstar Games (recently Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and RDR2) have gotten my attention in terms of Art.

Let's break off with Kipling:

The Tale is as old as the Eden Tree/As new as the new cut tooth/
For each man know 'ere his lip thatch grows/He is master of Art and Truth...

The funniest thing in this whole folderol is how low they're actually setting the bar. Positions like casting director are already almost entirely female, and since queers count as an "underrepresented group", and this is Hollywood we're talking about, most of the other boxes are easily ticked.

Noah,
Yeah I liked the Chinese-backed Midway a lot. Only movie I've seen in the theater for more than a year. My gut is that it was made to honor their grandparent's generation that fought the Japanese. Surprisingly, it was actually even pretty fair to the Japanese, displaying their faults and their virtues. I loved the heroic demonstration of accountability by the Japanese admiral at the end.

Blacks are only 12% of U.S. population, yet you'd think they were 99%. Every television commercial laid here depicts the equivalent of South Africa instead of America. Americans live on Planet Negro as far as (((advertising firms))), (((television producers))), and (((film producers))) are concerned.

There also appears to be an epochal case of cognitive dissonance happening in the heads of not-fellow whites in recent years. Even the least perceptive moron among us sees now that the doctrine of human equality is false. Yet that doctrine - the doctrine also known as "anti-racism" - is the defining faith of the West since World War Two. In other words, the secular religion at the core of our society for the last 75 years is now rather widely seen to be a damned lie on the order of 2+2=5. That explains why many Americans and other whites are going stark raving mad now. Their madness includes their doubling-down on the sainthood of abysmal scum such as Fentanyl Floyd. The foundational and organizational belief of post-war society is garbage, and one factor in people's realizing that fact was, humorously enough, the failure of the expectations they placed in the Obama Administration. They started seeing in 2010 that Black Jesus, aka the first black U.S. President, had proved to be just another lousy black. That's when Wokeness started catching on in a big way, with significant ratchetings every year thereafter. "Black Jesus is society's savior, he MUST be," they cried out, and then it turned out, HE ISN'T. Their conclusion was: Black Jesus is dead and we have killed him. Now they want to burn down the West rather than question their faith in "anti-racism." They are religious fanatics in the true sense, namely, believers in false idols.

James Woods hasn't been acting for a while. He made his $$$ buying Apple stocks decades ago.




...I hope he was bright enough to get out last week. The parabolic chart signature of that stock is reminiscent of Netscape in 1999.

Is it too late to option the movie rights to Space Raptor Butt Invasion? It was a Hugo Nominee after all.

Blogger tublecane September 10, 2020 3:05 AM  

The Oscar nosedive is instructive, how it started and how precipitously it fell. Of course, one could say it started decades ago, but there’s a difference between fait accompli and the thing itself actually happening.

By 2014 it was all over but the crash. 12 Years a Slave won, and because blacks believe once you go black you can never go back, they expected every year thereafter to be the Year of the Black.

2016, Straight Outta Compton failed to be nominated and the OscarsSoWhite Farce tanked the ceremony.

Then there was MeToo and everyone was sick of all their creepy old nonsense. Unlike the Golden Globes, they were too afraid to hire a host who’d make fun of the industry.

Finally, despite a Korean movie winning last year, 2020 was remarkably white. Simply too white to leave future ceremonies to chance, I suppose.

I was amused when that "National Conservative" Yoram Hazony commented that Hollywood was a once-great American industry that corrupted itself. https://www.twitter.com/yhazony/status/1303558785550688259

@ Cloudbuster “transgender brothers were killed assassinating Hitler”

That movie was already made: Inglorious Basterds.

Don't forget the baleful influence that Quentin Tarantino's movies "Django Unchained" and "Inglorius Bastards" had on a debased generation already brainwashed in school with the pseudo-religion of "anti-racism." And these vile films are what spawned copycat productions like "12 Years a Slave" and the kill-whitey would-be epic "The Birth of a Nation" (2015), the latter made by a black credibly accused of rape. Only the Trump Ascendancy and the "Me Too" movement spoked the wheels of that evil trend, at least temporarily. The removal of Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino's producer, was a more significant victory in the Culture War than most people realize.

Hahhaa!

Good.

I've been watching Koran tv series, and I like them.

Very chipper, positive, boy falls in love with girl, without any preaching, hiphop/rap, or trashy clothing.

They don't force any agenda down your throat.

Hollywood is failing, and I love it.

I like the old movies they made, back when stars were classy, and kept their mouths shut about their political beliefs.

Too bad that era is gone.

It's been years since "Best Picture" Oscar-bait movies have had anything to do with what audiences want.

Oscar-baiting - it just occurred to me how appropriate that term is - isn't about making movies that are entertaining, it's about making films that are "important."

Virtually all of the MeToo take-downs during the 2017-18 period had (((something in common))).
