RUSH: You know, I was just looking here at the nominations voting process, at Oscars.org. You know what? These people do not have any voter ID laws. There are no voter ID laws for the Oscars. Anybody could vote. “Final Balloting Process. Finals voting is also conducted via online and paper ballots.” Hell, the Russians could hack either one of those, easily.
“During finals, all Oscar categories are on the ballot for voting members. After final ballots are tabulated, only two partners of PricewaterhouseCoopers know…” Well, the Russians could hack them, too. You know, this mystery is deepening, because it turns out that Emma Stone — who won the Oscar for Best Actress for La La Land — had the card. She had it. There’s no way Beatty could… Well, not true. Do you know that there are two sets of ballots?
These PricewaterhouseCoopers people come out each having a briefcase. In case one of them is a bomb and blows up, they have the results in a second briefcase. Identical envelopes, identical briefcases, identical results, supposedly. So there’s two envelopes for every category that gets an Oscar. Emma Stone had one, so it’s possible Beatty could have had his, but somebody had to give it to him. Why don’t they just give everybody an Oscar? Moonlight and La La Land. Just give ’em all Oscars and soothe any hurt feelings.
