I get that most of the celebrities I like disagree with me on various topics. I like smoked meats. Twiggy celebrities like raw tofu served atop steamed rice pomposity. We can’t have it all. But Emma Stone’s hard turn to leftism gives me a case of the sadz. Zombieland and Easy A are both great movies. Even The Rocker is good in an “I have nothing to do and it’s on Starz” way. But I guess once you win an Academy Award, you have to turn bitterly partisan. In efforts to win more of them. Sad!
My disappointment in Stone aside, I do love some left on left slap-boxing. The Internet is in an uproar because Emma Stone dismissed a black guy and a latino just to go “Yay Feminism” while presenting the Best Director award.
Emma Stone is facing backlash for ‘white feminism’ after she referred to the Oscar nominees for Best Director as ‘four men and Greta Gerwig’ at Sunday night’s awards show.
Wow, how Natalie Portman of you. Are you going to remake Beautiful Girls next?
The 90th Academy Awards were filled with references to the Time’s Up movement, but many people felt Stone’s jab about gender disparity in Hollywood missed the mark because it dismissed the accomplishments of two men of color.
Critics took to Twitter to accuse the 29-year-old actress of minimizing the achievements of Best Director nominees Guillermo del Toro, a Mexican immigrant, and Jordan Peele, a black man, in her controversial introduction.
Emma Stone taking shots at the Best Director nods is cute because:
A. She said ZIP about Halle Berry showing up in THAT montage twice w/ 0 lines
B. She played an "Asian" in 'Aloha'
C. Peak White feminism
D. The Best Director nods included two MOC

I'm not here for the participation trophies & partial credit some are so eager to give out. Emma Stone made a movie with Woody Allen, played a whitewashed character, and erased the importance of two men of color in a category. But she identified a woman, so…. yay? #Oscars

She stole the idea but even Natalie didn't really dismiss the nominees, more the nominating committee. She simply said "the all male nominees" so Emma's was more a dismissal of the other nominees by highlighting Greta (who I love) when it isn't exactly fair to Peele or Del Torro

TBH I wasn't a fan of Emma Stone presenting Best Director at the #Oscars by saying "The men nominated and Greta Gerwig". Gerwig is only the 5th white woman to be nominated but Jordan Peele is only the 5th black man. How many Mexican directors are nominated?

Hey Emma Stone, I have a Hot take: this directory category didn't need a burn.

I haven’t laughed this hard since Superbad. Though let’s be honest, all the funny scenes were with McLovin’.
The left has divided people into warring tribes for so long, it was only a matter of time before they started beefing with each other. Best Director award should be about five great directors. Instead, it’s about an African-America, a Latino-American, a Uterus-American, and two Filler-Americans. No one is getting along.
