FLASHBACK: Jerry Seinfeld Skewers 'Stupid' Award Shows. And it's Hilarious!
We've had fun mocking awards shows lately, and apparently so have other people. The Oscars ratings were down to a multi-year low this year. Of course, we can think of a few reasons why (see OSCARS 2017: Leftists Now Angry…Because White People Make Too Many Movies and Emmy-Winning Director Calls Trump Hitler). But the bottom line, they're just stupid. The awards and many of the people receiving them.
Which is why we found this Jerry Seinfeld clip from ten years ago so hysterical...
All of the award shows on TV. It is beyond me we feel the need to set aside a night to give out these jack off bowling trophies six times a year. So all these people can pat each other on the back over how much money they're making boring the piss out of half the world.
This is what award shows are. A bunch of arrogant celebrities giving each other reach arounds to celebrate each other's awesomeness. Or maybe that should be "awesomeness." Which don't get me wrong, Americans are more than happy to watch if not just for the pretty dresses. But don't you dare ask an actress what she's wearing, or she'll call you a sexist.
When said self-congratulatory puff fests feature speeches insulting half the country, for no other reason than disagreeing with them politically? Americans flip the switch. Americans don't take kindly to being insulted by their entertainers. If only Hollywood understood, maybe more people would like them. Typically if an airhead is seeking popularity, it should be from the people who pay them. In this case, Americans buying tickets. Not the Hollywood studio suits who offer anal smoke therapy to each pretty person who waltzes through their platinum doors. Where do you think the studio money comes from, you ninnies?
Thank you, Seinfeld, for the laughs!
And speaking of laughs...
