“I feel like a celebrity has as valid an opinion as anyone else, but I don’t know if they deserve millions of people paying attention. But if I were them, I would do the same thing, I guess.”

Tim Knowlton, Moab

“We’re a celebrity culture and people pay more attention to celebrities than they do to people who actually have the facts.”

Verenice Sanchez, Ontario, California

“No. I don’t believe it’s a valid political platform. People use art as a means to escape reality, but it can also be used to change opinion. Use your star power for political change, but don’t do it while people are just watching an awards ceremony.”

Nicholas Badovinac, Moab

“Do you think that the Oscars, or any other awards ceremony for that matter, are a valid platform for political opinion?”
