Conservative Twitter celebrates ‘Top Gun Maverick’s’ Best Picture nomination ‘Woke is unsustainable’

Tom Cruise’s blockbuster earned him six Oscar nominations all over the world. American flag emojis have taken the center stage on Twitter following the announcement by conservatives of “Top Gun: Maverick’s” Oscar nomination for Best Picture, and some have claimed that it’s one of the “non-woke” movie everyone can support. “Yes! Don’t go woke, don’t go broke. The tide is turning. Woke is unsustainable. Destruction, welfare, Perversion, narcissism, corruption: not a good foundation to build on,” one user wrote.

A popular film critic and gamer Christian Henares said, “If #TheOscars are going to redeem themselves for the past 5 years of woke stupidity, Top Gun: Maverick winning the Best Picture award would be a perfect start. What a great movie.” A user also praised the film for not pandering toward people who belong to the “woke brigade” and called for Hollywood to acknowledge its “uncomfortable truth” that wokeness is not popular.

The only Hollywood movie I’ve seen since 2019 is Top Gun: Maverick,” lawyer from New York Matthew Kolken said. “It was about the only movie that could get me to go to a theater again and support an industry that abhors constitutional protections, and this specifically and ironically includes freedom of speech.” The much-anticipated sequel to the blockbuster of 1986 was nominated for six awards overall with the most notable being for the Best Writer (Adapted Screenplay) Best Film Editing the Best Original Song of Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand,” Best Sound, and the top Visual Effects.

The film’s original version received four Oscar nominations in the past 35 years ago. It also won Best Original Song for pop group Berlin’s smash “Take My Breath Away.” While the majority of people were focussed on the film’s nominations for Best Picture, others complained that the nominations did not suffice, claiming Tom Cruise’s performance was worthy of nod for the Best Actor award and said the film merited the “Best Director” nomination as well. The film’s performance at the box office raked in $1.49 billion across the globe and garnered the highest praise from moviegoers and critics too.

Other films that have been nominated for Best Picture include several popular movies from the previous year’s nominations: The legendary “Elvis” film starring Austin Butler as the rock and roll legend King James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” “Triangle of Sadness,” and many more. The 95th Academy Awards ceremony is set to be broadcast on Sunday, March 12 with late-night comic Jimmy Kimmel hosting. Numerous people speculate that major films like “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Elvis,” and “Avatar: The Way of Water” will draw more viewers following the disappointing ratings of last year.
