“we don’t have to take private jets to palm springs.” joaquin phoenix using his speech to call out hollywood’s hypocrisy in calling an end for climate change.
Of course, just as his speech was getting good, the producers played him off stage:
How apt that the “wrap it up” music began playing just as Joaquin Phoenix began asking his fellow celebrities to make personal sacrifices—say, foregoing the personal jet—for the sake of the greater good. #GoldenGlobes
Can’t let a little honesty get in the way of your awards show!
Joaquin Phoenix, after winning best actor for JOKER, asks the Hollywood elite to “make some changes” and “make sacrifices in our own lives — we don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs…” before the music begins to play him off.
Hey, they had a vegan meal so it’s all good, right?
“Don’t take private jets” while the exit music is booting Joaquin Phoenix off stage is the climate message that I’m sure Hollywood will take to heart…
