Why don't the Hollywood luvvies boycott the Oscars?

Another year, another Oscars ceremony and once again complaints of 'lack of diversity' and 'not enough women director winners.' If Hollywood actors are so concerned, why don't they simply boycott the event? It would show solidarity and also show that they mean business.

Of course, there would be a few sacrifices; no red carpet treatment, no standing there in your fairy cake dress with one leg forward and no freebie gift bags worth $5,000. Basically, no publicity.

I wonder why they don't do that?

Quite possibly because they don't truly believe that people should win Oscars based solely upon gender and/or color.

Who actually cares anyway? most of the films have music overriding dialog anyway so you can't hear what they are saying

wonder if they'd be happy if all the winners would be transexual black people . I wish they'd stop making an issue of everything.

Yes, that would upset them wouldn't it.

Those peoples lives revolve around adulation of the masses. They aren't about to sacrifice that for some silly notion of justice, fairness or equality.
