素晴らしいスピーチでしたが

 
メリルストリープのスピーチ。早速日本語訳も出回っていてその素晴らしさを実感することができます。ただ、アメフトや格闘技をアートに含めなかったことはファンの怒りを買っていて反撃を受けています。

Meryl Streep Was Dead Wrong About MMA In Her Otherwise Lovely Golden Globes Speech
BANSKY GONZALEZ 01.09.17 26 COMMENTS


The speech has been lauded, but there were some curious moments, most notably her chiding of the sport of mixed martial arts. “And if we kick ’em all out,” she said of all of the international stars, “You’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.” The idea is, without all of the diversity present in Hollywood and at the Globes, we’d all be left with Trump and his supporters watching football and mixed martial arts, apparently the hobbies of the modern-day neanderthal.

格闘技の方が多様性を含んでおり、白人至上主義が続くハリウッドよりもマシというのです。

The choice of MMA showed not only a gross misunderstanding of what the sport is, who participates in it, and who its audience is. Not only is alluding that MMA is the sport of the immigrant-loathing Trump supporter insulting, it’s just plain wrong. By inferring that Hollywood — a culture so white-washed that #OscarsSoWhite became a movement last year and actors and actresses of color boycotted the profession’s premiere event — was somehow more diverse than sports in general, but especially MMA, Streep made her tender and eloquent moment laughable, even for the briefest of moments.

具体例としてゴールデングローブ賞の内訳をあげています。

At the 2017 Golden Globes, the event Streep celebrated for its diversity and international mix, only 10 of the 30 actors and actresses nominated in the six primary individual actor categories were either black or international and only one won, and that includes several British born actors and actresses. The other 20 were all American born white actors and actresses. That was up from last year when only three international or black actors were nominated, and none won. In fact, over the past three years, every single award in those major categories has been awarded to a white American or Brit, save for Viola Davis’ lone win on Sunday in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role category.

確かに去年は白人が演じることになってしまったことをwhitewashと表現して色々物議を醸しましたね。

Why Did 'Doctor Strange' and 'Ghost in the Shell' Whitewash Their Asian Characters?


こういう反応を見るとアメリカ国内の対立の深さを感じます。
