Celebrities Rail Against Republicans, Hammer on Animal Rights at ‘Woke’ Oscars

From dairy farming to John Bolton to climate change, the Oscars were a political affair through and through.

Hollywood’s big night was, once again, an unrepentant liberal love-fest, with a number of Tinsel Town’s biggest stars exploiting their time in the spotlight to dabble in Democratic talking points.

This certainly isn’t anything new for the cult of celebrity, who have taken to identity politics like pigs to muck.  It’s not enough to be attractive or talented in Hollywood these days; you must also maintain the proper political alignment as well, lest you wish to be shunned or blackballed by the liberal elite who sit atop of the entertainment throne.

At the Oscars last night, this new reality was on full display.

The first political commentary of the evening came during Steve Martin and Chris Rock’s opening monologue, where Martin recalled the famous best picture category mishap in 2017. “They have guaranteed this will not happen this year because the Academy has switched to the new Iowa caucus app. But what a night!” (Martin was making light of Tuesday’s Iowa Democratic caucus’ technical issues that delayed results for several days.)

Rock responded: “I don’t know, Steve. I’m a little conflicted, you know? I was driving here tonight, seeing the terrible homeless problem in L.A.—” at which point Martin cut him off: “Thank you, Chris! So many stars!”

Hollywood’s quintessential heartthrob then took his turn:

Accepting the first award of the night, for best supporting actor, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘s Brad Pitt also made a nod to U.S. politics during his speech. “They told me I have 45 seconds this year, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said, referring to the lack of witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Later in the night, the eccentric Joaquin Phoenix used his time on stage to rally for animal rights, particularly attacking the dairy industry in his rambling screed.

And the night wouldn’t have been complete without a nod to climate change, with activist Greta Thunberg thanking documentarian David Attenborough during a prerecorded segment that aired during the event.
