Hollywood has become insanely “woke.”
Leftists in the entertainment industry are eating themselves because nobody can be left-wing enough.
Now a Hollywood awards show was a complete embarrassment for one reason.
The Golden Globes were an utter disaster this year, and progressives can thank themselves for that development.
The awards show didn’t even put on an actual show after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was accused of racism and cronyism last year.
From Rolling Stone:
“While the Golden Globes have long been a fun-filled fête full of A-list film and TV stars eating and, more memorably, drinking throughout the ceremony, this year’s event was markedly different. Unlike in years past, the 79th Golden Globe Awards were not televised. Gone was the familiar banter between hosts like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who presented the show from opposite coasts last year, even amid a pandemic. Instead, after a year of controversy for the Hollywood Foreign Press, the party went off without a red carpet or any celebrity presenters. And in lieu of its signature ceremony, the HFPA unveiled winners and losers via…Twitter.”
Leftism is destroying Hollywood itself as it moves wildly to the Left.
Not even frivolous awards shows are safe.
It began when comedian Kevin Hart was bullied into backing out of hosting the Academy Awards—his dream job—because some miserable progressive dug through a decade of old tweets and found some that were crude.
The Academy Awards went on without a host.
Then COVID paranoia forced the awards shows to go remote, which was a complete disaster.
Now the shows aren’t happening at all and the winners are being announced on Twitter because Hollywood leftists aren’t woke enough.
Rolling Stone continued:
“The HFPA has long been considered a grift for its members, who’ve been accused of more or less accepting bribes in the form of lavish press junkets where they hobnob with stars. But the real trouble started last February, when an L.A. Times investigation revealed that the organization had no Black members among its 87 voters. The report came after several acclaimed Black-led films, such as Judas and the Black Messiah and Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, failed to receive nominations for best picture at the 2021 ceremony, sparking outrage at the voting bloc’s lack of diversity. A few months later, NBC announced it would not broadcast the 2022 Golden Globes, and several other networks and streaming services severed ties with the HFPA indefinitely. Tom Cruise even gave back the three Globes he’d won.”
The insanity didn’t stop there.
One of the Best Actress awards went to a biological man.
Transgender performer MJ Rodriguez won the award for the FX drama Pose.

Leftists have become a parody of themselves.
The meltdown in Hollywood is a microcosm of what happens when leftists take over in general.
Their policies and ideas do not work, so everything falls apart when they’re met by reality.
