Posted on 01/14/2020 7:35:40 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Barack Obama had something to celebrate today because the Netflix documentary he and wife Michelle produced, "American Factory," was predictably nominated for an Oscar for best documentary.
Glad to see American Factorys Oscar nod for Best Documentary, Obama tweeted. "Its the kind of story we dont see often enough and its exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground."
Higher Ground is the name of the Obamas' production company. Last year they were accused of "deplorable behavior" over a trademark dispute over the name of the company.
"Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team! Obama added.
"American Factory," which debuted on Netflix in August, was the Obamas' first project under Higher Ground Productions and follows the story of a closed GM plant that is bought and re-opened by a Chinese billionaire. It has a 75% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 97% critics' score.
I admit I've never watched the documentary that the Obamas' allegedly produced, but it's a bit hard to believe that this documentary would have earned this nomination had they not been linked to the project.
Let's look at the evidence.

Barack Obama has already won two Grammy awards for Best Spoken Word Album, and Michelle Obama was recently nominated in the same category for her memoir, Becomingand I'll bet a thousand dollars she'll win. In fact, if you look at the nominations and winners in that category, you'll find a lot of Democrat politicians and pundits have a knack for scoring nominations and winning the Grammy in that category, while their conservative counterparts don't even get nominated. Nominees for Best Spoken Word Album include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Al Franken, and Jesse Jackson.
Why not? Theyre great actors.
Oh, I love these Babylon Bee articles. They are so clever.
He won a phony baloney Nobel Cracker Jack Prize.
Why not an Oscar?
The fellating continues...
Why didn’t they just give him an Oscar? They actually made him produce a movie, first? That’s so unfair.
Oscar the Grouch ?
$90M? To the Obamas? I dont believe this for a nanosecond. Smells of quid pro quo.
Let's see how Netflix listed this "so-called deal" AND the original Obama $65M deal on its shareholder reports.

Nobels for nothing and dicks for free...../s
For crying out loud—the people voting on this very likely voted what these two America-hating traitors left in the toilet bowl “Most Beautiful Pieces of Feces”, saved their used Kleenexes to adore, and collected the hair that fell from their combs to ooh and aaah over. Idiots.
And it would have nothing at all to do with all the funding and tax breaks that were sent Hollywood's way during Obama's presidency.
Nothing at all.
Cheapenizing another “prize.”
Right. It’s exactly the same thing and proves that decades may change. But leftists never do.
The Oscar folks should just get it over with. Nominate them for a permanent award, “Greatest Humans, Ever and for all Time,” and then just give it to them every year. Each year the trophy will get bigger and the portion of the award ceremony devoted to the Oscars will be expanded. Eventually, it will be a year round award that never goes off TV.
First, the Nobel committee cheapens their award, now the Film Actors Guild cheapens theirs.
The Left worships these people.
That isn’t hyperbole.
I mean, literal worship.
a couple who tried their best to take our country down... when will the dopes of society end their love affair of these 2 losers.
Any award they receive will have as much importance as the floor directly in front of a men’s urinal at Walmart.
And the Oscar for Most Inept President goes to..........
Obama’s should receive a award here’s your sign I’m with stupid.
