Rush, Clint Eastwood Have THIS To Say About Oscars Boycott

The Motion Picture Academy's Oscar awards ceremony this year has gained an enormous amount of attention ahead of its Feb. 28 gala. Several Hollywood actors and directors have threatened to boycott the event because, for the second year in a row, the Oscar nominees are all white. Boycotters include director Spike Lee and actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

In an interview with ABC News, Will Smith said, "(Jada and I are) uncomfortable to stand (on the Academy stage) and say that this is OK. There is a position that we hold in this community, and if we're not part of the solution, we're part of the problem. It was her call to action, for herself, and for me and for our family to be a part of the solution."

But some people think the boycott is, frankly, just plain ridiculous. Rush Limbaugh and Clint Eastwood are among them.

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show, Rush pointed out, "If that's the case, then why aren't all good liberals boycotting the Democrat presidential primaries? Which is whiter, the list of Oscar nominees or the Democrats running for president? Is there a whiter group among those two?"

When asked about the boycott on TMZ cameras, Clint seemed to be paying little attention to it, but said, "All I know is there's thousands of people in the Academy, and a majority of them haven't won Oscars. A lot of people are crying, I guess."

In other words, quite your whining.
