Oscars 2017: Conservatives Slam Academy Awards Celebration

26 February 2017 7:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sean Spicer said Thursday that Donald Trump wouldn’t be watching the Oscars, especially since he’s attending the Governor’s Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Sunday evening.

That didn’t stop Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel from tweeting at Trump, “Hey @realDonaldTrump you up?”

Trump might yet be DVRing the show however, since in the past he’s been an avid Oscar watcher, even when he’s not enjoying the show, as he tweeted in 2015, “So many things are wrong!”

The Oscars are a sad joke, very much like our President. So many things are wrong!

Scott Baio to Liberals Scared of Trump’s Presidency: ‘Grow Up’

17 January 2017 10:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Baio doesn’t have much sympathy for Hollywood liberals horrified by the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency.

“Grow up,” he says.

“I was nervous for eight years with Obama. I had to suck it up and deal with it. Do the same, and maybe your country will be a better place than it was.”

The “Charles in Charge” and “Happy Days” star is part of a small but vocal band of entertainment-industry conservatives. While most actors threw their support behind Hillary Clinton, Baio was an enthusiastic Trump surrogate, tweeting about the candidate and speaking on his behalf at the Republican National Convention.

“He’s a fighter, and he won’t let anything slide,” says Baio. “So many Republican nominees always feel like they want to stay above the fray, and they get maligned and crushed with negative publicity, and they don’t do anything about it. »
