Oscars Ratings Disaster - An Open Letter To Hollywood

Datum objavljivanja: 27. Tra 2021.
The 2021 Academy Awards weren't exactly a big hit with audiences. In fact, they recorded their lowest ratings in the show's history. This is my response to Hollywood.

  • Hey Drinker, you should listen to your own idea and stop interjecting your right-wing opinions into everything.

  • I wish we lived in a world where money was not the qualifying factor in who gets to make what

  • Why anyone listens to the points of view of actors is beyond me. They are paid to pretend to be other people. Their views hold no more weight that anyone else, it’s just shamefully self obsessive to use your fame to promote your own virtue signaling point of view. However to make things fair and to truly promote diversity why not let someone with an alternate view, say, a Plumber, get to speak after the actor? Now THAT’S progressive 😂

  • Hollywood isn't even the first that this is happening to, and they won't be the last. They have no understanding of who they, their friends in similar economic and political circles have hurt with their rhetoric and tone not only over the past year, but many. When it comes time for them to ask for help, the cold shoulder they receive should be the moment they realize where they went wrong, but I doubt they'll realize anything.

  • I really miss Rooster Cogburn ... he would know what to do with all those snakes in Hollywood.

  • Found your channel thanks to Efe Aydal. Awesome video

  • Never have watched never will

  • Well said 👏🏼

  • F Hollywood. I have zero interest in an industry that thrives in the greatest country in the world and bashes our freedom. F them all. I protest by not spending a nickel of them

  • Normally find your rants over the top, annoying and even though agreeing with much of what you say - often the sound, delivery and of your voice (I am ex professional presenter, teacher and trainer) leads me to often turn you off, which shows to me your too bright if you only considered the content of your message as oppose the mechanism of your delievery. BUT have to say, even with your limitations this HRwiki video was incredible, it had a Churchill effect about it, every word was spot and I bet those who listen would want this played to ALL cebs every day before they go to work. Picking up that the entertainment world as happened in the depression was used to lift people's spirits (ie escapism as a respite was spot on. Could not agree with you more about your experiences of certain moments in films effecting you more than anything else, the same with me. I am not being sarcastic, I mean this, I have in my time played certain films It's A Wonderful Life and as a child cried my eyes out, as a parent with my young sons they did and with an end of final school year of my very tough inner Nottingham city teenagers at the end as I turned on the lights found most of them wiping their eyes quickly so not to show their tears. So way with the Green Mile when John Coffey goes to the electric chair and regret shown by the guards - all fantastic moving moments. To prove your point so well the use of Red Butler at the end saying "frankly my dear i don't give a damn" summed it all up.

  • At this point I think the only way we’ll get politics out of Hollywood is to let it burn until it can burn no more. The more woke movies they make, the less profit they’ll make until they figure out what the problem is.

  • Hollywood is dead nobody and I mean nobody cares about actors they totally suck now there is no such thing as a movie star the oscars is probably the most boring thing I’ve ever heard Dear Hollywood nobody cares about you keep your politics to your self

  • Don’t EVER stop! 100% correct!! Thank you for speaking truth. Now I know why my daughter loves the Scots - plain spoken yet eloquent.

  • why people stop watching oscars? Cos Oscars stop rewarding the best films

  • Give me a bigger shovel!

  • HRwikirs who post Top 10 Best and Worst of the Year videos are most entertaining and fair than the actual Oscars. I would rather watch them. Also, never watched the Oscars before.

  • I think the pandering that Hollywood shows and movies do to audiences is a back handed way to incite subconscious negative responses to certain ideas. Thus enforcing the polarization of the american people. It may also just be the writers or producers true ideologies showing through by subconsciously making these opposing ideologies undesirable.

  • I do not want Hollywood to knock it off I want them to go into fuckin extinction.

  • The Oscars are just like the Eurovision Song Contest. Nobody cares about this event anymore.

  • Democrats make me sick.

  • I saw tintin, I see you have good taste.

  • Every black or asian that wins now will always have a connotation now that "maybe they win because of fulfilling a quota"

  • You are an absolute genius and no one seems to be processing the obvious! Thank God people like us exist. Keep up the great work Brother! I am such a huge fan!

  • It's like I've said time and time and time again: Hollywood celebrities are absolutely the LAST people to be lecturing us "normal" folks on how to be. They have no idea what it's like to be us, and they need to count themselves lucky for the positions that they're in because of us.

  • Don’t hold your breath for a sudden burst of originality from Hollywood. Various Hollywood studios have just announced a whole series of sequels/prequels and spin offs currently being planned or filmed. Everything from a continuation of the Rocky franchise to Texas Chainsaw Massacre to 7 different additions to The Kingsmen franchise are all planning comebacks. God help us all.

  • That's half the reason I switched to anime

  • I remember growing up, and watching the Oscars with my mom and grandmother, we enjoyed it, then when Obama came into office, and he and his wife were there, that was it for us, and haven’t watched it since, that was years ago.

  • Hahaha Hollywood. Dead❤️

  • Amen

  • You sound like you're pleading with Hollywood.

  • FACTS!

  • Fix the homeless problem in LA.

  • You do understand that movies have been used to propose a political view since the literal beginning of movies right? Showing things like you shouldn't be racist or sexist doesnt necessarily mean anyone is "telling you how to live" i hear what you're saying but.... You're entertainment. You tell us how stuff we don't have to agree with. Does that mean you're pushing a center-right narrative? And if so, how are you any different than them?

  • Thank you thank you thank you Critical Drinker. Well said. Thank you for speaking the truth.

  • millionaires giving prizes to other millionaires who think they are better than everybody else... sure! i'll watch. (no i won't)

  • To hell with all of them. This past year has shown me that we dont need hollywood woke actors and actresses. They arent preaching to me what and how I should feel.

  • Hello

  • Fantastic letter.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • They need to stay out of politics

  • as soon as we have Trump all shit hit the surface.

  • "Exists solely for entertainment"? Here in Sweden, the first thing you hear in acting school is "you are here to change society". It's been that way for decades, I have grown up with political lectures being showed down your throat while masquerading as entertainment so all this is very familiar. What shocked me was that this disease managed to spread so quickly, especially to the US.

  • I don't understand Hollywood and the people complaining about the so called "non-diversity". There are so many good movies from the 80s and 90s with diverse actors even strong female characters like in Alien from 1986. Hollywood did fine until they listened to the few complainers and Hollywood became from an entertainment industry to a lecture industry. It's too forced, thus it seems perverted in many ways. And that forced homosexualism in the TV shows and movies. .. To me it looks like we have hit the bottom of the downfall of society. I feel sorry for the kids growing up with this today.

  • As Usual Well said Drinker 👍🏻👏🏻

  • Let me know how that works out.

  • Hollywood can do whatever they want. Idiots will spout off shit but still go and watch the latest woke bullshit Marvel movie. Unfortunately, most people are hypocrites who won't change their behaviour, but expect other people to change theirs. These are the same joe publics that criticize the woke culture but still line up to see the movies the industry releases. If the public really wanted to change the situation then they should vote with their wallets. Unfortunately all they want is super hero movies, no matter how terrible they are.

  • Well said!

  • Just imagine if the Hollywood stars from the 30s 40s 50s and 60s and 70s could see what the Oscars have turned into, I honestly think they would get physically ill.

  • Amen

  • Well said!

  • You nailed it! Thanks for saying it perfectly!

  • I totally agree. If I want to be peached at, I'll go to church!

  • "Political diarrhea" - accurate!! Great monologue

  • This is the only way I watched the Oscars this year!

  • Imagine that at the point when I'm watching this, this video has 1.5k dislikes. What the fuck...

  • Oscars?........ didn't even know they were still patting themselves on the backs with these shows. Have your award shows but keep them to yourselves.

  • Absolutely well said

  • "Unspecified virus of unknown origin" got me good.

  • TRUTH! And don't forget that China has invested billions (maybe trillions) into Hollywoke. They do have an end game and weakening the will of the people by dividing us is part of it. They know very well that these woke films are horribly divisive and can only serve to cause social upheaval. Between the current adminstration (who are all whores for the Chinese Communist Party) and Hollywoke, we're becoming a bunch of spoiled angry brats who only fight best amongst ourselves. Oh, and don't forget Silicon Valley, which is yet another haven for filthy rich, ideological tycoons who lost touch with reality decades ago.

  • Oscars is a Hollywood circle jerk and fans don’t matter. I stopped caring about seeing the Oscars years ago. What ever social issues are having determines who wins. Having a Oscar is now a just a way of saying I am included too because it’s makes Hollywood social acceptable.

  • i don't get it, you say they are only for entertainment. That's not true Hollywood has a great power of shaping and controlling the culture of many demographics and in a big way America. Like think of any trope that exists and you will see a few movies that started and drove that perspective to a point that it is a norm now. I think you just want nonserious movies and some plain stupid fun movies and yeah that makes sense but don't say Hollywood doesn't shape culture or is not supposed to

  • Imagine all the people... hello? People?

  • This dudes voice sounds like Cameron in ferris bueller's day off.

  • More like they just want to prove how clever they are (they are not) instead of telling a good story.

  • It's only gonna get worse for these idiots👍👍 good job‼️

  • Would you please be so kind to provide a detailed list with all the movie clips and time stamp in this video??

  • Grind Hollywood into the ground.

  • It's not just the politics & woke far left extremism, i.e. the movies themselves which get nominated for/or win Oscars are complete dogshit & unwatchable. No matter the message. This has been true for over ten years now, i.e. it's all gross, nasty social dramas with shitty characters & horrible filmmaking. The political agenda & the shit films on display are simply a symptom of the bigger issue: Hollywood's so-called "elites" are shitty human beings in every possible way. They're talentless, hypocritical, dishonest, perverted, devious, vicious & will do anything to acquire fame & fortune whilst having not of the character traits (or skill) to merit it. They make horrible films, say horrible things & do horrible stuff... because they are in fact horrible themselves. It's quite straight-forward, basically.

  • awards don’t mean shit anyways.

  • Brilliant - true!

  • Since the future Oscars has pledged to have minority quotas both in front of the camera and behind the camera to even be eligible to be nominated, the smug, politically correct shit show is only going to get worse. Liberals are too ignorant, arrogant and self-important to ever learn or change. I bet that the ratings for next year's Oscars will be less than half of this year's ratings. The Oscars is in real threat of being cancelled.

  • Well said my man!

  • You sound like we want them back, let them keep going just like they are, it’s enjoyable when they start to eat each other and disappear into dark hole of that ideology.From their failure better things will come from people that learn not to be like them.

  • Not just hollywood.that include british film industrie..it become so woke.

  • What are these "Oacars" you speak of?

  • pdeo hollywood

  • Should have donated those $200k gift bags for the nominated to the homeless that were swept out of sight. Use that cash to fill empty stomach's instead of using fake words that cause many of us to empty full stomachs.

  • I had this epiphany tonight, earlier when I was trying to figure out why people are so horrible to each other. I know that others have said something similar before me but not exactly what I was thinking. I think that this is why we have the issues we have right now with the Woke left, and with Hollywood and other institutions as part of that movement. I don't know if I can exactly put it into words for others to understand but I will try. When you don't believe in anything greater than yourself, you are stuck here in this one world trying to bend it to your will. You ignore the beauty of the world and see only thing that need to be changed, according to your desire. You find fault with everything eventually and think virtue is getting likes on you twitter account or an "at a boy" from anyone you can in society. This is made worse when you have a lot of free time. Then you can become the kind of person that is not thankful for what you have worked to have, but the kind of person that always feels that they deserve more, deserve exactly what they, and no one else, want, becoming bitter about the very hard realities that life brings. Since these people don't believe in something greater they fight to control everything they can here on earth instead. Instead of the comfort in believing in the beyond, the oneness of the Universe, where being good to each other has meaning, they try to control reality here and now to find some meaning. Becoming control freaks in the process, because that's all they have, they cant find peace and they act like tortured souls, bringing misery to all in a vain attempt at finding peace, worth, or a sort of redemption. Life for these people is seen by them as something different. When you believe, truly believe, in something greater than you, you begin to see life as a temporary thing, you can see it as a gift of being alive for a while to experience life and all it brings, both good and bad, in the greater cosmic flow. You see others in the same position, walking the same path as you, having the same desires, pains, loves, and joys as you, more or less. You can see it as a gift of god, who made all for a purpose. You can see it as a test for a greater goal, and on and on. But if you don't believe in anything but the hear and now, life can become a rush to do everything and anything you want to, a hard and cruel thing with no purpose for which people try to kill their pain trough drugs or alcohol and other pleasures. They see life as something to ravage because there is nothing else, no greater truth, no after life, no consequence for your actions, only for getting caught. Marks said that religion was the opioid of the people. Maybe he was right in that, but wrong in what it actually meant for mankind. That peace of answering to a thing greater than ourselves, gives us an escape from the hardships of life. It gives meaning in and of itself without having to search for it in the approval of others. That we dont have to feel responsible for everything in the hear and now, only what we ourselves do, and we don't have desire to control everything because we are humbled. While religion has often gone to far and can if unchecked lead to many of the same attitudes, excesses and abuses, the lack of it seems to quickly cause mankind to rip each other apart in a mad scramble for wealth, power, position, and approval in this world. Most people will never be top of the heap in the material world and therefore without a belief in something greater than themselves and everyone else, most will always feel angry at not being at the top. Those that are at the top never want to give up that position, so they will do everything and anything they have to, to anyone, to keep that position and feel powerful, because that is all they have. Part of this is being cruel to others, because it gives some people a sense of power, of meaning. I think this is what is going on now, simply tearing things down, looking down on others, preaching, and acting horrible to other people because they have the power to do it and get away with it, because this gives them a feeling of control and worth that they can not achieve in any other way. It seems hard for mankind to find balance with their ideologies and religions. Now it is the Woke ideology that we find to be fanatical, tyrannical, and dehumanizing. It is amazing that considering how many times mankind has found excuses to abuse each other using ideology and religion, that mankind has not found a better way. That, I believe is because we fail to learn from our mistakes and are unwilling to put in the hard mental work that is necessary for most to find meaning and peace with the rest of mankind without having to control everything and be on top. Maybe one day most of mankind will finally arrive at a happy medium, but as I get older I doubt that more and more. Be excellent to each other.

  • Dear Oscar's. Do Better

  • Bang on Mr drinker. Cheers

  • Too. Fucking. Right.

  • Historically actors were regarded as fool's and morons who couldn't do anything of value. Amazing that we let them think anything else

  • I saw the end coming for Hollywood & legacy media years ago as the internet got bigger and bigger. People are dropping cable T.V. everywhere because it's out dated. MSM like CNN exists solely for propaganda in public places like airports. I don't know anyone who watches T.V. everyone is on their computers picking their own content, their own news sites & entertainment. The smug arrogance of idiot actors is the icing on the cake. They are surfing on the success (and now carcass) of 20th century Hollywood the glory days are long gone.

  • This video made me a subscriber - so many more ppl need to see this

  • Agree with you, 100%. And Le China James.... shut up and dribble. Ricky told them...... they have yet to listen.

  • I couldn't agree more

  • This is exactly right as a white guy all they do now is tell me how I'm a slave master and oppressor of worlds.

  • Because the Oscars have become a crap show. I new forum for the uninformed and entitled to try and get their political agendas vomited out.

  • Wow! Brilliant!!!! And well said. The tragic fall and folly of Hollywood, yes it will be a tragedy if the dream factory dies!

  • Who goes to theaters anyway. We watch older movies due to Hollywood thanking I want to watch lbgtq scenes with my kids. I don't want my family watching that crap. There are true stories and documentaries

  • there needs to be a new updated Ratings system RW means lots of woke and diversity at the expense of good content. I wasted time watching shadow and bone hoping for a bone tomahack revisit, but instead i got strong diverse women saving the day against evil and controlling men.

  • Bravo Bravo well said! These people are so arrogant it’s sickening we don’t care about anything they have to say! Stay in your damn bubble and stay out of our life’s!

  • The only people moved by the oscars were the homeless.

  • I think that the politics, and opinions are mostly not their own. They just try to satisfy the laud "progresive" voices. Problem is....they are laud, but we are many more :-)

  • It's OVER...GETTING WORSE AND WORSE.

  • The Oscars had a cost of 40millions + The viewer count was less then 10million... Do the math yourself =D

  • I feel like so many companies forget that they are our only option. Just take a look at cartoons. The biggest ones are all foreign now. Hollywood has plenty of replacements both here, and foreign.

  • Great video partner. Unlike the Oscars, I watched you. I won't even watch any of the movies or tv shows hollywood makes anymore. I cancelled my satellite tv service. I watch antenna tv, and never watch anything produced after 1970.

  • Ah come on now Drinker, you know the what you call ems are pretty alright people. They voted me in, so they're all good in my book. If they want to tell the people how to live and preach, I say let 'em!

  • What is the name of the movie at 5:25?

  • Man, You got a fan in me. This is going to very big comment so bear with mee...Your Videos are surely insightful. I came across your channel When I Saw your Black Panther video. Actually, when I saw the movie it really felt something wrong with the story and overall concept of it as compare to other marvel movies like Iron man or cap America. This BP movie added some things which looks a bit like copied from india and pasted in Wakanda like She fly plane in Pranayam(this is too much ), a Country just hidden behind mountains, Praise Hanuman, ancient technology The way of story building a character is really necessary for any character to become fit in our mind for a long time. many movies these days come with political and social propaganda, more vulgar humor(not at all funny), and less entertainment. You know even There was this fully fake, propaganda-ridden Movie (undeserving )Slumdog Millionaire won Oscar. It portrays a totally wrong and fake picture of India which is not at all like the movie shown and far better. even bollywood (India substitute of Hollywood....hehehehe) going in the same way you explain about Hollywood. Thanks
