The Emmy's have gone, oh so predictably to the leftist crew who created the Palin hit piece "Game Change".
Julianne Moore, ungraciously gets a "thumbs down"dig in at Palin and says she is now "validated" but the only thing "validated' is the proof of the leftist hatchet job on Palin.As if the kudo's from leftist Hollywood is a validation of anything except their agenda.
Here's the dignity of leftist Moore
The actress won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or movie, and she told the audience that she felt "so validated since Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down."
Although the left is awarding and rewarding itself, the last laugh is on them surely. The production was clearly designed to hit Palin during her 2012 presidential run. That that did not happen must have created groans of disappointment, and hopefully big losses for the production company.
Should Palin decide to run four years from now the actual events, and the fictional events created by Hollywood will be a long forgotten, irrelevant memory.Palin will have the last laugh as the media, including McGinniss et al, and their enablers amongst the Dem's and Hollywood, will have shot their respective bolts with no "scandals" to dredge up about Palin.
Here are some links to the truth behind "Game Change courtesy of Conservatives4Palin commentators;
Some great articles about the (fiction) movie 'Game Change'.
'The Truth HBO's 'Game Change' Hides: Palin Carried McCain Until He Changed the Game'
From the article:
"I briefly served as a volunteer speechwriter on the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008. I was never part of the inner circle, and even if I had "dirt" to dish, I wouldn't dare violate the confidentiality agreement I signed - even though that hasn't stopped some former McCain campaign aides from publicly blaming Gov. Sarah Palin for everything that went wrong.
But here's the truth about the McCain-Palin campaign, which HBO's upcoming "Game Change" film attempts to shroud in fanciful anti-Palin fiction: Palin carried the campaign.
She would have led the Republicans to victory had it not been for the September financial collapse and McCain's disastrous decision to suspend his campaign so that he could vote for the TARP bailout in Washington. After the bailout vote, support for the Republican ticket collapsed. "
'More 'Game Change' Fallout: 'Staffers talk just to save their asses'
From the article:
"Well, now we know who one of those bomb-throwing cowards is, Steve Schmidt, who HBO portrays as the calm, cool, reasonable hero of the film.
In real life, however, it's no secret that he was the "super-genius" behind ("Schmidt pushed for going all in") the moment polls prove really lost the 2008 election; when Senator McCain foolishly decided to suspend his campaign and run back to DC to save the economy. "
'Whom Do You Believe? HBO or Gallup?'
From the article:
"Despite the premise of "Game Change" - that Sarah Palin cost John McCain the 2008 presidential election - Gallup polls prove HBO's assertion categorically false. Palin wasn’t the reason the Republicans lost the election.
She’s the only reason they had a fighting chance up until the time McCain suspended his presidential campaign in late September.
Some were intrigued as to how McCain’s decision would play out in the polls, but once he suspended his campaign in late September he never recaptured the lead he enjoyed with the breaking news of recruiting Palin.
It was downhill from there."
Here are two earlier pieces setting out some of the background to this misbegotten enterprise. which is as hollow as the "awards" should be. Any recipient will be receiving a tainted award which will be seen as valueless except as a Goebbel's type propaganda piece.
Entertainment Tonight AT THIS LINK has a glowing puff piece up on the entire cast of the Palin hatchet job "Game Change' with particular emphasis on Julianne Moore's chances of an Emmy. I completely agree that her win is "assured" as why would the leftist crew who produced this hatchet job miss another chance to stick the knife in to the female Emmanuel Goldstein they and the media have created.
Continuing on with their fantasy Palin they now have Nicole Wallace as Palin's "Punching bag" which suits the make believe world of Hollywood.
What we have never seen are the financial reports on this turkey of a production. How much did it cost to make and how much did it garner? If it had made a profit no doubt the left would have shouted it from the rooftops.
The only good thing about this Hollywood scare flick is that the groans from the financial backers that must have ensued when Palin announced she would not run in 2012 must have been enormous.
They thought they would finish her campaign off with this fable whilst protecting Obama but all that has happened is that the public have seen the relentless attacks for what they whilst Palin continues to grow in popularity the poll AT THIS LINK shows.
Here is a taste of the hagiography for the game Change cast-if you like that sort of thing you can read the rest that link above.
Emmy Hopeful: Sarah Paulson - 'Game Change'
Whenever a subject comes along celebrated by the left wing, you can always count on one final rescue when it ultimately loses with the American people.
The writers of Game Change and the accompanying surrogates in Hollywood who turned it into a film worked hard to keep their narrative on schedule. In the free market of art (that’s the nicer way to describe a work of fiction), many folks invested a lot of money and effort in trying to make this thing work.
After the movie was hyped to the gills, it disappointed in ratings. As reported at Breitbart, a disappointing 2.1M viewers tuned in to watch. Contrast this overly-hyped propaganda piece with Sarah Palin’s Alaska which brought in 5M viewers in a single episode — or when Palin gave Oprah her largest viewing audience in two years when appearing on her show in 2009 — or when SNL was given its biggest ratings in more than a decade when the real Sarah Palin made an appearance.
The result is apparent. While the real Sarah Palin is a massive hit with the American people, the poorly-portrayed and sold out version through the avenues of smear books and films seem to all share the same fate of utter-floppery.
So I expected some type of politically correct recognition which falls in line with that of a room-monitor handing out prizes to all the kids just for participating. This was done this week when the Emmys announced that Game Change had earned 12 award nominations. Julianne Moore now stands to win an award previously earned by Tyra Banks.
I don’t mean to knock soap opera actresses who grace the screens of daytime TV, but when multi-million dollar productions are forced to share space with the likes of day-timers like Maury Povich, it’s easy to see where the legacy of the subject is headed.
To better explain the prestige of the Emmys, an article written by Joel Keller says: (Emphasis)
“As big a deal as the Emmys are to people who are TV geeks like us, in the grand scheme of things, it feels less essential than most of the other major awards shows. The winners are often forgotten a few weeks after the hardware is given out, to the point where it’s a surprise to find out who is an Emmy winner and who isn’t (for instance, did you remember that Patricia Arquette is an Emmy winner? Neither did we; she won in 2005 for “Medium”).”
“But when it comes down to Emmys vs. Oscars, it’s a bit more complicated than just TV vs. movies. Even though both academies give a ton of awards, the Oscars are more defined. There are no separate awards for best comedy, best drama, or best indie movie. It’s just best picture, best actor, best actress, etc. Natalie Portman was the best leading film actress last year, period. It’s that distinction that makes Oscar winners stick in people’s minds more.”
In other words, the Emmys seem to create categories to fill its time. Television shows and TV-movies are a dime a dozen. As such, many varying categories and sub-categories are required to fill an award show and they are divided between daytime and prime time.
Accordingly, it’s no shock that the Emmys were able to hand out 12 award nominations to the creators of Game Change. Based on its awful ratings, all that’s left is a little recognition from an auditorium filled with prime time sitcom experiments preceded by salacious talk show hosts and caddy soap opera queens.
After all is said and done, the consequences of this fact-changing hit piece seem positioned to fall on the predators. Millions of dollars are down the drain, recognition from the American public is lacking, and the intended target is still going strong.
Hope springs eternal.
