Letter: People watching Oscars want to be entertained

People watching Oscars want to be entertained

When I watch the Oscars, I just want to be entertained. The public has been inundated with enough politics, finger-pointing and accusations, with this being an election year. I do not need more of this when I watch an award show.

With all the controversy already surrounding this year’s award ceremony, I think many actors will have a lot to say – and I don’t want to hear it. Yes, the Oscars ceremony is a good platform to air certain grievances, and on occasion one or two opinions are welcomed. I think this year is going to be different and I, for one, do not want to hear all of it.
