Clint Eastwood shuts down ‘all-white Oscar’ crybabies with just one sentence

Without any drama, actor/director Clint Eastwood gave a common sense answer when asked his opinion about the controversy surrounding the all-white Oscar nominations.

“All I know is there are thousands of people in the Academy and a lot of them — the majority of them — haven’t won Oscars,” the multiple Academy Award winner told TMZ.

He admitted that he hasn’t kept up with the brouhaha, but said, “a lot of people are crying, I guess.”

Eastwood won best director and best picture for both “Million Dollar Baby” and “The Unforgiven.”

The controversy began when Al Sharpton noted that for the second year in a row, the Academy failed to nominate a single African-American. Since then, people in the industry have taken sides, and some are even boycotting the awards ceremony altogether.

In response to a growing list of celebrities who announced they were boycotting the event, the Academy caved and announced that it hereinafter “become less male and less white.”

Goodbye merit, hello quotas.
