It didn’t take to long for the Oscars to go anti-Trump. This is an example of why Hollywood award shows are dying.
First award, first speech – and the shrieking began. No matter how abysmal the ratings, these clowns just don’t get it.

Oscar Winner Brad Pitt: 45 Seconds is ‘More than the Senate Gave John Bolton”
By Breitbart, February 9, 2020:
Actor Brad Pitt went on a politically charged rants in his Academy Award acceptance speech on Sunday ripping the Senate impeachment trial and specifically the absence of John Bolton from the proceedings as a witness.
Pitt, who won the supporting actor award for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, had largely avoided mentioning politics during this Hollywood awards season. But on Sunday, he made his speech overtly political.
“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” he said.
“I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”
Pitt thanked his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, Tarantino, as well as the actors and directors who helped his career, including his Thelma & Louise co-star Geena Davis.
According to a Vulture report this week, Pitt has turned to former Obama and Clinton speech writers to help craft his acceptance speeches this year.
