This past weekend, the United States has celebrated Hollywood and film at the 89th Academy Awards. Moonlight, La La Land, Hidden Figures, Lion, and other films were celebrated by the Academy. This year, Hollywood celebrated diversity through thought, creativity, and color. Hollywood still has to make significant changes in order to make creative opportunities more accessible for minorities. There was one group that was explicitly forgotten at the Oscars last night: we celebrated the large budget successes, but what about the cringe-worthy flops? Don’t they deserve to be recognized too?
With the Oscars finally over, many would assume that awards season has ended, but they’re wrong! We can’t forget the Razzies, or according to CUCR, the “37th Golden Raspberry Awards!” Bwog wanted to finally see if Batman vs. Superman would get every horrible award it truly deserved: when we were honestly disappointed that it didn’t sweep, we were about to shut our laptops, filled with sadness, when Dinesh D’Souza popped up at the end of the video with members of CUCR.
You might have been like us, wondering how in the hell this all came together. Apparently, Dinesh D’Souza stopped by Columbia University and asked Columbia students to join him in a video for the Razzies. Dinesh wanted his audience, members of CUCR, to celebrate the fact that the Razzies hated him. At the end of the Razzies video, D’Souza and CU students came together and were featured at the end of the video.
Confused? If you’ve seen his documentary, you might not be. Watch the video below. We skipped to the good part for you.
