The Whole Internet Seems To Agree That ‘Wind River’ Got Shafted

People aren’t taking kindly to the fact that “Wind River” got zero Oscars nominations.

I bravely and proudly defended this great movie earlier today, and I’m grateful that I’ve served as a rallying beacon for the internet.

Did I think I would be the face of truth and justice when I woke up this morning? Hell no, but here we are. I guess this is just my burden to carry.

Some people probably think I’m overreacting, but I’m literally willing to die on this hill. Hollywood is embroiled with scandals about mistreating women, we then get a great movie about a powerful female FBI agent, a badass game ranger and a bunch of dead rapists. Are you kidding me? I get that Weinstein was behind this movie, but that’s all the better reason to recognize this film. He got scrubbed, the movie was awesome and it deserves recognition.

There’s more fairness and justice in a third world dictatorship than at The Academy. I hope the stars of the film refuse to show up.
