Ryan Reynolds shared a public service announcement to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Canada in which he poked fun at fellow celebrities feeling self-important amid the ongoing crisis. The Canadian actor shared the brief one-minute video on his Twitter page Monday in response to a social media chain launched by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In it, the actor struck a serious tone while asking fellow Canadians to stay at home in an effort to curtail the spread of COVID-19. “Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau,” Reynolds says in the video of himself sitting on the couch and speaking directly to camera. “We need to work together to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19.” For the sake of levity, that’s when the 43-year-old “Deadpool” star joked about the many ways in which celebrities are seizing the current world health crisis for attention on social media. “I think in times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities that we count on most,” he deadpanned. “They’re the ones that are going to get us through this… right after health care workers, of course… First responders, people who work in essential services, ping pong players, mannequins — they’re great — childhood imaginary friends, sure. Like 400 other types of people.” The actor then concluded his message on a serious note by asking his followers to practice social distancing and encouraging them to look ahead to the future. “Look, stay at home, practice social distancing, wash your hands. We are going to get through this thing, we’re going to get through this thing together,” Reynolds concluded. Trudeau, whose wife tested positive for the virus, started the social media chain calling on high-profile people to help him “plank the curve.” Reynolds ended his video by nominating Canadian musician Steven Page, his brother, Terry Reynolds, and fellow actor Seth Rogen.

Awesome!! Ryan used his almost Deadpool-like sarcasm to poke fun of his fellow HollyWEIRD actors making all of these mind-numbingly out-of-touch videos and comments on social media. We love Arnold S.. BUT, the one of him sitting in his hot tub and smoking a cigar and telling everyone to relax. Really? Those of us who aren’t gazillionaires like the former Terminator are worried about our jobs, putting food on the table, and paying our bills. All Arnold has to worry about is whether his maid won’t show up due to quarantine. These HollyWEIRD liberal elitists have no clue.. Thanks Ryan for slapping them. Excellent!! 🙂
Actor-comedian Ricky Gervais viciously trolled Hollywood celebrities just hours ahead of Sunday’s Academy Awards, preemptively deflating their self-important acceptance speeches in a series of humorous tweets. Ricky Gervais took the stars to task for their progressive views on migrant workers, noting that many celebrities employ migrants in their homes to perform menial and backbreaking work. The British comedian also mocked the sex scandals that have consumed the entertainment industry during the last three years. Gervais’s Oscars trolling was in response to a hypothetical question posed to him on Twitter asking what jokes he would make if he were hosting the Oscars tonight. This year’s Academy Awards will be hostless, marking the second year in a row that the show’s organizers have opted to do away with a host after Kevin Hart stepped down last year following the mainstream media’s efforts to destroy his career by digging up his old tweets. Viewership of the Oscars has been on a downward trajectory as viewers tire of Hollywood’s political hectoring and non-stop bashing of President Donald Trump. Ratings have fallen since 2014’s high of 43.7 million viewers. In 2018, the show only managed to draw an audience of 26.5 million, its biggest yearly decline. In January, Gervais hosted the Golden Globes, ripping decorum to shreds by cracking jokes about virtue signaling celebrities, Apple sweatshops, and Harvey Weinstein. “If you win, come up, accept your little award tonight… thank your agent and your God, and fuck off. No one cares about your views on politics or culture,” he said at the Globes.
Ricky definitely did what nobody has done yet, and looked these millionaire, sanctimonious, out-of-touch, self-serving, arrogant, liberal elitist HollyWEIRD hypocrites right in the eye and told them to “f_ck off.” It was AWESOME!! They were told basically how Unimportant they are, and that nobody really cares about who they’re sleeping with, or their views on politics, etc. It was about time!! Tonight is the Oscars. Do yourself a favor and NOT watch it. Thanks Ricky! 🙂
Buck Henry, the Hollywood screenwriter known for “The Graduate” and “What’s Up, Doc?” and who co-created the TV comedy series “Get Smart,” died Wednesday night in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack, according to reports. He was 89 years old. Many fans also know Henry for his frequent appearances on “Saturday Night Live” during its early years. For example, Henry was the sandwich-buying customer who appeared in the “Samurai Delicatessen” sketch with the late John Belushi. “The Graduate,” released in 1967, made a star of Dustin Hoffman and earned Henry and co-writer Calder Willingham an Oscar nomination for their film adaptation of Charles Webb’s 1963 novel. The film, about a young man’s struggles to adapt to adulthood, made the one-word answer, “Plastics,” a popular punchline. Hoffman’s co-star was Anne Bancroft, whose husband Mel Brooks had collaborated with Henry in the creation of “Get Smart,” which aired from 1965-1970. It starred Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, a hapless, comedic version of James Bond. In 1978, Henry earned another Oscar nomination for directing Warren Beatty in the 1978 comedy “Heaven Can Wait.” He also wrote the screenplay for the 1995 Nicole Kidman film, “To Die For.” He also played Dick Lemon, father of Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon, on “30 Rock,” Entertainment Weekly reported. Henry started his career by writing for TV hosts Steve Allen and Garry Moore in the 1960s, Deadline Hollywood reported. His wife, Irene, was by his side when he died in Cedars-Sinai Health Center, Deadline reported.
Was very sad to hear about Buck’s passing last night. I grew up watching, and loving, the original Get Smart tv series with Don Adams. What a classic! And, of course, I remember seeing Heaven Can Wait when it came out in the theater…which dates me, lol.. Thanks for all the laughs, Buck. R.I.P.
The biggest stars in TV and film gathered in Beverly Hills in the hopes of kicking off the 2020 awards season with a highly coveted Golden Globe award, and notoriously controversial host Ricky Gervais wasted no time laying into the Hollywood elite vying for a big win. Stars from films like “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Rocketman” and “The Irishman” as well as shows like “Big Little Lies,” “The Crown” and “Barry” were in attendance but the comedian and host was undeterred by the many famous faces staring back at him. He called out the many stars in the room for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney. “Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.” Gervais then mocked the stars in attendance for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd. “Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care.” Next up on Gervais’ jokes list was Felicity Huffman who recently completed a stint in prison for her role in the college admission scandal. “You all look lovely all dolled up, you came here in your limos. I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he said to the crowd who cringed. “It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…” He also took a shot at Leonardo DiCaprio for his film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” being three hours long. “Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him.” He added: “Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.” He also set his sights on director Martin Scorsese’s comments about Marvel movies being like theme parks, joking that he doesn’t understand why the director would be at a theme park. “He’s not big enough for any of the rides.” Gervais concluded his scathing monologue by warning the celebrities not to make any political or “woke” statements when accepting their awards. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything,” he declared. “You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg.”
And that’s not all Ricky said the other night. He said, “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech.” Agreed!! Then, concluded with, “So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent, and your God and f___ off, OK?” YESSSSS!!!!! Ricky looked these self-absorbed, arrogant, self-righteous, extremely-liberal, elitist tools right in the eye and gave them the finger. It was awesome!..and about time!! If you’ve not seen this, Google it. Great job Ricky!! 🙂
