Hollywood entertainment became even more insufferable during the Trump era.
Leftists didn’t even try to hide their messaging in film and television.
And one woke television show just suffered a humiliating defeat at this awards show.
The Emmy Awards recently took place in Los Angeles where luminaries in the entertainment industry were allowed to crowd into an indoor facility without wearing masks.
As for the awards show itself, The Handmaid’s Tale, a leftist fever dream based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel about a theocratic patriarchy, did not fare well at all.
The show broke an Emmy record by racking up the most losses in a single year.
“Hulu’s woke, dystopian drama The Handmaid’s Tale has broken the record for most Emmy losses in a single year after winning zero of its 21 nominations following the Emmy Awards on Sunday night. After last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys and Sunday night’s ceremony, The Handmaid’s Tale came out zero for 21, breaking the Emmy loss record previously held by AMC’s Mad Men, which earned 17 Emmy nominations and winning none in 2012 . . .”
The Handmaid’s Tale has replaced Harry Potter for the Left in terms of being their cultural touchstone applied to real life in hackneyed fashion.
Any time the Republicans do anything, leftists invoke Gilead, the name of the oppressive society in The Handmaid’s Tale.

The Left did the same thing when Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to replace the departed Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
If the Emmy shutout is any indication, perhaps the culture is getting sick of overwrought Handmaid’s Tale analogies.
Nevertheless, the meme has started all over again in response to the new Texas abortion law.
