Mahersala Ali, winner of the award for Actor in a Supporting Role for ‘Moonlight,’ Emma Stone, winner of the award for Actress in a Leading Role for 'La La Land,’ Viola Davis, winner of the award for Actress in a Supporting Role for 'Fences,’ and Casey Affleck, winner of the award for Actor in a Leading Role for 'Manchester by the Sea,’ pose in the press room during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California.
Every experience in my life tells me that if a man constantly erodes the self-worth of the women around him, disrespects and hurts the women who love him, is lascivious and self-serving and a known misogynist, but still makes halfway decent art, he will be lauded and rewarded against those more deserving and marginalized.
Which is to say I’m not surprised by that Oscar win.
Listen, they keep doing Brie Larson so dirty because every time she has to award Casey Affleck it looks as if her soul jumped out of her body and lost faith in humanity. I feel her. When are we gonna stop awarding Male predators??
People have every right to be upset that the Academy did not give an Oscar to Denzel Washington. However, I am sure, even people, who dislike La La Land, would be happy to see Ryan Gosling winning instead of Casey Affleck.
