The Academy Awards are coming up, and in a development that should surprise no one, the liberal celebrities in attendance will not be required to be vaccinated.
It’s just the latest reminder that so much of our COVID policies are based on who is involved. Elitists who are by and large leftists, get a pass while everyone else has to be jabbed and masked.
There are vaccine mandates for truckers who sit alone in their trucks, but not for celebrities crowding into a theater.
Do people on the left think no one sees this double standard?
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Oscars: COVID-19 Vaccination Will Not Be Required for In-Person Attendees (Exclusive)
The Oscars will be back at the Dolby Theatre on March 27, less than a year after the pandemic forced Hollywood’s biggest night to be held as a scaled-down affair at Los Angeles’ Union Station with strict COVID testing requirements. In the time since, safe and free COVID vaccines have become widely available and mandated for everything from dining out to attending sporting events.
But, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is planning not to mandate proof of vaccination (with or without a booster) in order to attend this year’s ceremony. Instead, it intends to require a negative PCR test or a negative rapid antigen test on the day of the event.
The Academy, which requires its own employees to be vaccinated (with rare medical exemptions), declined to comment for this piece.
What happened to following the science?
Hollywood celebrities aren't required to take the vaccine to attend the Oscars but healthy Armed Service members are being required to take the vaccine to keep their job.
Is this what "following the science" looks like?

Los Angeles has had a vaccine mandate for school, work, and going out to eat.
Why do the Oscars get a free pass?

Oh well, it’s not like anyone will be watching the Oscars anyway.
