Oscars Hypocrisy: Hollywood Builds A Wall To Protect Celebrities

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Hollywood’s brightest stars will be protected from curious onlookers on its biggest night by ten-foot-high walls, numerous barriers, and barricades surrounding the Dolby Theatre.

Hollywood A-listers may not publicly support the construction of a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico. Still, they support the wall more than Donald Trump when it comes to their lavish homes (I’m looking at you, Mr. Spielberg) or award shows.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) blocked off the iconic Hollywood Boulevard this past weekend to set up fences, walls, and barricades before the big event when stars and business insiders will commemorate a year in movies.

The barrier stretched for at least one block on Hollywood Boulevard between Highland Avenue and North Orange Dr., directly in front of the El Capitan Theater.

And, of course, armed security personnel were present.

The public is permitted to sit in the bleachers for the Oscars Red Carpet event (which will be champagne in color this year).

The 2019 show attendees were protected by strict security measures, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).

“We’ll send out enough police to make sure that everyone in the community and Oscar attendees are safe. An LAPD spokesperson told THR, “We hope for the best but are ready for the worse.”

When it comes to divulging plans to protect Oscar-goers, the Los Angeles Police Department plays it close to the vest — or perhaps more literally, its flack jacket. Suffice it to say, a huge chunk of the department’s 10,072 sworn officers will be on hand Sunday to enforce their largely secretive security measures.

For onlookers planning to hang out outside the venue, LAPD officer Norma Eisenman suggests they use public transportation, Uber or Lyft, as street closures and parking will make it a nightmare for travelers on Sunday.

But taking the MTA subway train will require some walking, as the Hollywood & Highland station will be shut down Saturday and Sunday to make room for Oscar.

Already, Hollywood Boulevard is closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive, and several smaller streets will be blocked over the weekend, as will the sidewalks nearest to the theater.”

Actor Javier Bardem criticized former president Trump’s plan for a border wall with Mexico in 2019 at the same Oscars.

“There are no boundaries or walls that may constrain originality and genius,” Bardem declared in Spanish before giving out the Best Foreign Language Film award.
