BEVERLY HILLS, CAThe Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has stripped Schindler's List of its Best Motion Picture award for not having enough LGBTQ+ characters, people of color, and other oppressed groups.
"Schindler's List would have been a great movie if it just had a dozen transgendered characters," said Le'Jon de Froofroo, spokesperson for the Academy. "As it is, there are just a bunch of Jews and Germans -- very privileged races."
"Also, the movie has Nazis -- this is the current year, for goodness' sake!"
Steven Spielberg has been ordered by the Academy to re-release the film with an unnecessary LGBTQ+ side plot, a gay roommate for Schindler, and a song and dance number set to a Lady Gaga song over the end credits if he wishes to re-earn the Academy Award. Otherwise, it will be re-awarded to Brokeback Mountain.

Two years from now this Babylon Bee satire will be prophetic.
Had me going for ten seconds. Gotta be careful reading satire pieces.
This almost reeled me in...
How many Best Pictures would have been ineligible based on the current rules?
Bold. Bold satire there, Babylon. Aint sayin youre wrong (unfortunately).
Two years might be an optimistic forecast.
Im still waiting for the sequel to Brokeback Mountain..... Oklahomo....
didn’t Titanic win awards, and not a black person in sight. Leonardo should immediately jet around the world on his private plane and beg for forgiveness.
I was looking underneath the headline myself when I got done reading it. Reality and satire are too much alike these days.
Thank you for not putting /sarc in the title!!!
No schvartzes in Berlin in 39!
I’m glad I saw the BB for the story before I went ballistic.
I know, right?! The nerve of them, acting as if Irish and Italian immigrants were “discriminated against”!
After all that how dare these local liberals declare the US the worst country ever.
so you only win the Awards by have the most Diverse Movie acting ,the story , special effects , music etc etc etc don’t count anymore ,LOL
NOT that far fetched. We heard Larry Elder laying out the NEW IMPROVED rules for the academy starting in 2024(?). Going to take some serious “pandermonium*” to meet the requirements.
*My new word. I like it. LOL!
I like it too !
