  • Meryl Streep Golden Globes Speech: "MMA is not art"

    According to lifetime achievement winner last night, one of my mom's favorite actresses Maryl Streep; if you deported all the foreigners then you wouldn't have anyone in Hollywood to make the things you watch, all that would be on is football and mixed martial arts, which is not the arts by the way:



    Do you see MMA as art? I would have to say yes, the very definition of art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Martial arts may not be the typical visual form but it is very much the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power, that is martial arts.

    But I thought this was cute that MMA was even mentioned in this. Back in the day being a fan of MMA it was like an underground thing that nobody knew about, now apparently there is too much of it on TV for people like Maryl Streep. Also being mentioned in the same breath as football in a big protest speech that everybody is talking about, MMA sure has come a long way. I think Jeff Blatnick would be proud. RIP.

    Can't be too mad at a snobby old lady for being a snob. I mean, there isn't much to say.

        Do you see MMA as an art form?

        It doesn't really make me mad personally, like I said I actually got kinda tickled that she would even mention MMA in a speech like that. We have officially arrived!

        But the way she said it though. I always felt like there was a large portion of people out there that look down on MMA like a disgusting pig white trash trailer park sport, the overall culture of it, the cage, etc, it will never really be taken as seriously as boxing(which isn't a bad thing). I've got a little saying that I like, MMA is to the sports world what pro wrestling is to the entertainment world, it's got a huge glass ceiling as far as credibility and respect goes from the mainstream. I mean look at the response to the possible Conor vs Mayweather fight, people acting like it was way beneath boxing to do something like that, even comparing it to Ali vs Inoki.

            I see MMA as a competition that showcases various martial ARTS adopted/interpreted/innovated by modern practitioners to both achieve their goals and to entertain.

            All this notwithstanding that certain fights are almost poetic in the way they play out, but that is a different level than just the physical expression.

                I don't really watch these awards ceremonies, and I sure as hell don't really care what goes on in the minds of Hollywood SJWs like Meryl Streep, but this actually kind of pisses me off. Why are these fake, plastic people cheering her stupid speech? How is this supposed to make all the foreign MMA fighters who worked their asses off to get a contract with a big promotion feel? What a dumb thing to say. All she did was show she has a general grasp of Geography and that she did a quick wikipedia search on all the big names in the crowd
                Fuck The Revival!

                    Tough one. Is MMA art? No its not. Its a competition based combat sport where you try to physically hurt or knock unconscious your opponent. However I do think that some forms can be considered art when they are demonstrated for entertainment purposes. The UFC is not art.

                        I will point to my buddy Cole for his statement on it as it fits mine

                        MMA is an art of itself, there are none other like it, just like boxing has its sweet science it is an art of its own design.
                        Her speech said "it's not the arts" and this is 100% true it's not the arts in which she is representing or referring to.
                        Ours is a brutal sport of athleticism and violence the arts we hold true are those of combat and the beauty in which we see in it.

                        If you're truly upset about what she said you're just being silly and Naive....
                        Now you're on the field callin' me an asshole, 'Cause I roped up your body like a lasso

                        And I could be just like Mr. HK, runnin' cause a melee
                        Bring my team a W, I'm poppin' shots like Pele
