BlazeTV host, Jon Miller insinuated that the Oscars were not a celebration of storytelling and film making, but an excuse to bash Hollywood royalty for their choices in who wins an award.
Bong Joon-Ho's Parasite won Best Original Screenplay at the 2020 Academy Awards on Sunday. After the South Korean director gave his speech in his native language, with the help of an English translator, Miller tweeted out:
“A man named Bong Joon Ho wins #Oscar for best original screenplay over Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917. Acceptance speech was: ‘GREAT HONOR. THANK YOU.’ Then he proceeds to give the rest of his speech in Korean. These people are the destruction of America.”
Miller replied to his tweet an hour later, to say:
“These people” are obviously not Koreans but those in Hollywood awarding a foreign film that stokes flames of class warfare over 2 films I thought were more deserving simply to show how woke they are.That should be clear from the rest of what I tweeted about tonight’s production.
