Decent: Entertainment lost to protests

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. At last week’s Golden Globes ceremony, some people were presented with awards for their services to acting and TV and film production. TV reporters kept the news quiet this year because, to be frank, it wasn’t very important. The #MeToo movement completely overtook the proceedings. While I have nothing against their cause, what I do object to is pushing aside those people who have worked hard for years and were thrilled to celebrate their success only to be overridden by a group of women on a mission to take over the world.

Even if you don’t much care about who won what and watched the show for its entertainment value, you’d have been disappointed. Speech after speech about women’s rights. I think they would have done better to hold a huge televised rally where we could have learned more about what they wanted to tell us without the distraction of a pretty dress or statuette.

The queen of the night was undoubtedly St. Oprah. In case you missed the reason she was there, it was to receive the Cecil B. deMille Award for lifetime achievement. I couldn’t help but wonder two seconds into her speech if it was more than a coincidence that she was given the award at the very time powerful men are dropping out of Hollywood like water through a colander. Who doesn’t love Oprah? I certainly love her as much as any woman who has watched her TV shows and read her magazines. She’s a wonderful orator, but then so were the other actresses receiving awards because, well, they’re actresses and that’s what they do.

Anyhow, what really shocked me was that almost before she’d sat down, the Twitterverse was alive with calls hoping she would run for president.
