The Academy Awards are just few minutes away and we can expect the award ceremony to turn all political. But, it looks like US President Donald Trump’s supporters are already in a mood to boycott the star-studded award show. President Trump supporters have started using hashtag #BoycottOscars to show their displeasure against the ‘bitter people of liberal Hollywood’.  Here are some tweets:   “#BoycottOscars I’m definitely boycotting this fake liberal Oscars @realDonaldTrump,” tweeted one.

“Will not be watching #Oscars2017 & listen to #Liberal #HollywoodElites trash #PresidentTrump #BoycottOscars #TrumpTrain #TwitterRally #MAGA.” wrote another.   The President of the United States will not be seeing this year’s Oscars as “he will be busy hosting the governor’s ball that night,” according to the White House Press Secretary.

Going by the trend, set at the Golden Globes, then at the Grammys, BAFTAs and BRITS, expecting the 89th Annual Academy Awards to go political, is inevitable.   The Oscars will be handed out on February 26, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
