They’re giving a Kennedy Center Honor in December to the musical Hamilton – why?! Now this! Looks like crumbling to me.

Does the Academy expect the precursors to just go away? Watch for the Golden Globes and SAGs in December by next decade. You know that SAG and the PGA will follow and give their own popcorn awards, too.

Maybe the Academy is concerned with another SJW freakout if Spike’s movie doesn’t look like a shoe-in for Best Picture next year. They have Black Panther in reserve for Best Popcorn.
