Why aren’t there more white men in Hollywood? Guys, this is serious. Honestly, I cant imagine anything more upsetting than sitting through yet another movie where all I can see is awesome characters with cool sassy dialogue and great personalities that are portrayed by famous female actors or people of color. This makes me so mad, and I seriously don’t know what to say.
How are we supposed to make little white boys believe in themselves if they do not see anyone who looks like them in any of their favorite movies? God forbid Tom Cruise, Eddie Redmayne or Benedict Cumberbatch get a decent role in a movie. Those guys are badass! And all we can ever see them do is kick ass in, like, one movie every few years.
And seriously. Don’t. Even. Get. Me. Started. On the Oscars this year. I was appalled at the winners. I’m pretty sure only one white guy won an acting Oscar??? What??? Denzel Washington was nominated, and he directed the movie. What? You can’t be a good actor if you’re directing the movie. What is that?? And seriously, he wasn’t that good. I don’t even know who came up with the idea for that Hidden Fences movie, but it seriously was just garbage on fire, in my personal opinion. Was Bradley Cooper in it? No. Did he even get an audition? No! of course not. Seriously, this is so unfair!
And seriously, La La Land was the best movie ever. I don’t think anyone can deny that fact. But whenever a white man finally gets a chance to make a movie about other white people doing the whitest thing humanly possible, of course there is gonna be some sort of ridiculous backlash about it from a bunch of idiots who just think they are the ones who matter. Seriously, so offensive. Then the spineless academy can’t even follow through and give them the Oscar that they so completely earned a million times. Cowards! I couldn’t even watch.
And guys, I love all movies, but seriously, did that Spotlight movie even have a white character in it? That’s what I’m talking about. We need to start thinking about the message that we are sending to kids when we make movies. Hollywood, here is my message to you. I know what I’m talking about, trust me. I’d like to literally lobotomize the next person who allows a superhero movie about a female hero. Not kidding. That is the worst.
There are seriously hundreds of male heroes in the comics, I think. I’ve seen the wolverine one, and I’m pretty sure Hugh Jackson is Cockasian. Right? Cause if he isn’t I think I’ll freak out. Uggh, so frustrating. Sorry guys, you know that I’m the kind of dude who just has to say what he’s thinking sometimes.
I’m unfiltered, and that’s what people like about me. My opinion is special.
