    I wouldn’t say it’s destroying Hollywood, but it is certainly changing it with both positive and negative effects

    If this was about Scarjo’s article, then no. She was wrong. She wants to play everything while others don’t even get to play themselves. Yes, in an ideal world an actor should play any character. But, in this world, some actors play every type of character.

    I can’t answer this without getting into U.S. politics. But I will put it another way: There is a bipartisan effort in destruction in many areas which are of concern to the nation and its people.

    Political topics have been around and discussed in fims and hollywood for long. It’s not a 2010s thing.

    Nah, the decline of cinema attendance and a fragmented TV market are what’s killing Hollywood. LGBT characters aren’t killing Hollywood.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    Nope…

    Nowadays I am seeing actors of all races on screens, LGBT actors and characters having their stories told, victims speaking out about abuse, and nominees of all backgrounds at award shows.

    The industry is simply following the path of music, and it is becoming a streaming world.

    Lol, perhaps the only smart thing you’ve ever said, Bruce.

    Not that bullshit about political correctness, but the other thing. Indeed, follow the money: capitalism is an evil of society.

    LOL, wrong on all counts. Just stating the obvious.

    When you follow the money the cold, hard truth is that a very small number of financial elites have controlled the banks, mainstream media, academia and political parties for years.   This is evil capitalism, aka, crony capitalism.

    Free market capitalism is now demonized.

    As for political correctness, it is the purest bullshit. PC subverts reason and logic. Once you jettison facts and truth, critical thinking quickly becomes a thing of the past. PC is mind-numbing and is thought-destroying. We are not to consider facts and use our reason and logic to reach conclusions. No, we must agree with whatever PC B.S. the liberal elite are selling this week.

    And this BS is ruining movies,  one of the greatest art forms ever.
