Kobe Bryant won an Oscar for “Dear Basketball” but most people were not having it because of the issues of him allegedly sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman in 2003.

Meanwhile, films centering women got snubbed…AGAIN.

Selma, Carol, Lady Bird…

Kinda weird that the best-reviewed films of the past several years, all centering women and/or being led by women, go home empty-handed.

What a coincidence. Remarkable coincidence. #Oscars

— Charlotte Clymer🏳️‍🌈 (@cmclymer) March 5, 2018

Looking at you, Lady Bird. Damn.
