Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood was asked about the Oscar boycott introduced by Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Spike Lee. To him it’s much ado about nothing.
“I don’t know anything about it.” He added, however, “All I know is there’s thousands of people in the Academy, and the majority of them haven’t won Oscars. A lot of people are crying, I guess.”
Rapper/Actor Ice Cube told TV Host Graham Norton the same thing during an interview last week, when he said, “We don’t do movies for the industry. We do movies for the fans.”
Clint always speaks his mind and doesn’t care if he is PC. That is why he is treasured by many.
Next year’s Oscars will be a joke because they will feel pressured to nominate a certain race.
