Une cérémonie des Oscars particulièrement #politique
Pour le meilleur et pour le pire, ce dernier étant aussi rigoureusement invisible au journal Le Monde qu’il l’est aux responsables des Oscars,
Darkest Hour at the Oscars – Random Thoughts of a Demented Mind
Given how woke the Academy has become, their decision to recognize, with one of its premiere awards, “Darkest Hour”, a hagiography of British war-time Prime Minister and unapologetic South Asian killer Sir Winston Churchill, is beyond reprehensible. Maybe in the 80s and the 90s, when no one cared, I would not have batted an eyelid, but now, now given the widely tomtommed sensitivity on the part of the Academy to the recognition of marginalized narratives, the fact that the Committee chose to reward a movie that airbrushes Churchill’s role in the #genocide of 2 million official (some say it is close to 4 million) in India and Bangladesh, just goes to show that not all marginalized are treated equal, and that Churchill being the savior of Europe still gives his reputation the immunity from having to answer for his #crimes in India.
