Donald Trump Is Right: The Oscars Have a Movie Star Problem

You know who’s a star? Spider-Man. You know who’s NOT a star? Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and even young Tom Holland, the three actors who have all slung sticky webs in the seven films that Spidey has appeared in during the last sixteen years. More germane to this conversation, though, you know who’s not an Oscar nominee? Spider-Man! ...

You know who IS a legitimate movie star? The Rock. No matter what movie Dwayne Johnson appears in, people flock to the theaters. You know who else? Liam Neeson, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Watson, and Hugh Jackman. Sure, those four have a few scattershot bombs amongst their work this decade, but more often than not, when they make movies, fans buy tickets. Who’s got ten thumbs, made a popular movie in 2017, but did not get nominated for any Oscars this year, though? These five!
