Petunia and Pals: Rhymes with ‘Tucker’

“It was forgone. Moonlight had to win because you knew what the film was about. And that’s part of the problem with Hollywood.”

OK, the hysteria of the mixed-up envelopes aside, Tucker is implying that Moonlight, only won because of political correctness, you know, because the ‘mos and (Frothy’s) blah’s had to win, and ignores the dearth of winners of either minority since the Academy Awards started in 1929. Tucker’s dogwhistle is that people of color and LGBTQ people cannot and should not make movies about their experience. It’s just more of his straight, white, male privilege.

I have not seen Moonlight, I cannot attest to its merits, but I can say without hesitation that Tucker is an ass. And I am willing to bet 5,000 Quatloos that Tucker hasn’t seen the movie, either, which makes his proclamation (“the second you feel a political imperative it destroys your art,” and “overbearing and pompous and boorish.”) even more problematic.

  1. What the fuck does Tucker know about art? Tell it to Bob Dylan, schmuck.

    “overbearing and pompous and boorish.” Is there a better description for Tucker?

    Fox News Entertainment Network. Meh. Why do I get the feeling that the entire segment was scripted? Anyways, that was a good example of the pig people receiving their daily instructions on what and how they should be currently thinking.

    Because I don’t know where else to say it: my cold persists, and between the NyQuil and the Trump-based woodkill, I’m really off my pace, and my humor is gone today. What I’m saying is I’m more Vogon than imp, so I’m gonna crash. Be back later.

    carson’s concept of art doesn’t go any farther than coloring books and, even if it was crap, what his mother posted on the family fridge.
