Why I Refuse to Boycott the 2016 Oscars

January 17, 2016 by  
Filed under Featured Articles, Front Page

I understand. I do. It’s crazy to think that in 2016, the members of the academy could not find any people of color doing great work in the movies. Yes, it needs to be addressed, but the things people are asking doesn’t make sense. And won’t help the cause. So far these are the only solutions I have seen proposed.

1. Telling Actors of color to NOT go the awards: Um, you don’t get to tell people what to do about THEIR JOB. It’s like asking someone to blow of the company picnic. Yeah, you could not go but everyone will KNOW you didn’t go. Plus they might not get invited again to the Oscars if they don’t show up. It’s an industry event they need to go to help remind the academy that they do matter. Listen, boycott your job events and tell me how it works out for you.
2. Telling people not to watch: Most people are not Neilsen families, so what you watch doesn’t impact the ratings. Also, you forget the Black HOST Chris Rock and the BLACK director Reggie Hudlin are going to get flack for that. People are going to assume they did a bad job, and I think it’s wrong. They would be easy targets if the academy wanted to “go there”. I don’t want to be responsible for hurting someone’s chances are getting the job again next year. The fact that there is a Black host and a black director is progress in my eyes. If you want to make a real impact, boycott the sponsors. Tell them you won’t buy their products because they didn’t speak out about this issue. African Americans have $1.1 Trillion dollars in buying power. It’s Martin Luther King Weekend; I can’t believe no one has thought of this yet. The answer is right in your face, and you’re off all weekend to think about it.
3. Get all excited about the Soul Train Awards and other ethnic award shows: NOW, you’re going support those shows? So, you didn’t care all these years, but now the Oscars isn’t playing far, you want to pump up other shows. Guess what, you can support all the award shows no matter what is going on. Does boycotting the Oscars mean, as soon as you see some change, you will abandon the Hoodie Awards? There is enough for everyone; it’s not either or ( to me).
I appreciate that the president of the academy said, they need to do better. It doesn’t help this year, but the first step to change is recognizing you have a problem. The first black woman won an Oscar in 1940 and then we didn’t see the best actress win until 2001. I know, it’s not as fast as it should be, but it’s moving. If you are still going to the movie theater and paying for one movie and sneaking into the “black movie” for free, you’re part of the problem.

  • Just to be clear, I was not invited to the Oscars. And I will watch it on TV.

How to Get Hulu in the U.K.

Hulu has not been traditionally available in the U.K. People who wish to watch Seinfeld, Empire, Wayward Pines or new shows like Second Chance have not been able to do so before now. Americans traveling and living abroad have had to miss out. As a person who travels a lot, I have had to miss out.

Now, I can access my Hulu account in the U.K. If you want to do this too; you will have to get a Smart DNS Proxy account. With Smart DNS Proxy, you won’t have to worry about slow speeds. Slow speeds are annoying and can make your video stops half way through the show. Smart DNS Proxy also lets you access your show through different devices such as Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 & 4, Android phones, Apple TV and Chromecast, etc. Installation on these devices is easy. It is explained in the guidelines. Hulu is blocked everywhere outside of the United States. My trips to Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Canada, had to be without my Hulu account.

Hulu gives you access to movies, TV shows, and trailers. Hulu even has it’s own shows. Hulu Plus is the version of Hulu, which gives you the newest shows. Now, when you are in the U.K, you can access Hulu U.K. via Smart DNS Proxy.”

Hulu makes it easy to watch your favorite television shows. You can watch when you have the time and do no have to tied to your tv or DVR. You can also get sneak peaks at new shows that are coming up. I watched the first episode of Second Chance. As a Sci-Fi Fan, I liked it, the story made sense, even though there are few loop holes in the logic. The story lines about family are very good. It’s really all about how far will you go to hold your family together? Or how far would you go to keep your family together. Luckily the people doing it are billionaires and can literally afford anything. I am not sure the ratings will be that good. The general public tends NOT to like the sci-fi/crime stories. Almost Human was cancelled rather quickly, despite the handsome leads..

 

Hulu also allows you to binge watch. I love being able to watch several episodes at a time. It leaves a better impact on the story lines. You don’t lose context over time. You don’t have time to forget the important details. You can really get into the story and see more details. Recently Showtime has been airing some commercial free shows. If Showtime is available on Hulu, I no longer have to pay for it in my Direct TV package.

 

Overall, Hulu has just gotten better and better, and I don’t want to miss it when I travel to the U.K.
