HOLLYWOOD – The National Rifle Association (NRA) to get its own Oscar category at the upcoming Motion Picture Academy Awards.
The decision came following a marked increase in movies with firearms featuring prominently. John Wick, Taken 3 and American Sniper all use gun play as an essential element of the narrative, stated a spokesperson for the NRA.
You can see that we’re winning the argument all across America. Guns have never been more popular or more beloved. Look at the success of American Sniper! Box office records shot to pieces. And Oscar nominations up the wahtoosie! Whereas The Lego Movie… where were the guns in that piece of shit?
But that was a kids’ film?
So what? Kids love guns and they even love to fire them. Under proper supervision obviously. Not just stealing mom’s gun. That’d be wrong.
The category will be called ‘Most Imaginative Use of Guns in a Motion Picture’.
The nominations this year are:
Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For
