When the world is talking about the Oscars 2024, businessman and investor Elon Musk is not too thrilled about it. The Academy Awards are one of the most prestigious in the film industry. Musk took it to his social media handle to share his take on it, and he said it was just a wake contest. Keep scrolling for more.

As predicted, Oppenheimer by Christopher Nolan took home most of the awards, including major ones. Robert Downey Jr, Cillian Murphy, and Christopher Nolan won their first Oscars and maintained the winning streak of this trio. Emma Stone took home her second trophy after 2016’s La La Land. Meanwhile, Musk often stays in the news for his comments, and his relationship with Amber Heard has been in the limelight for a substantial amount of time.

The Oscars 2024 took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. It was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. On March 11, Elon Musk, who is now the owner of the social media platform X, took to his official handle and wrote, “Winning an Oscar now just means you won the woke contest.” In another post, he continued, “When an award is diluted, everyone knows, including those who received it, and it no longer commands respect.”

It is unclear why Elon Musk said these things at the Oscars 2024. Some netizens asked Musk to chill out and enjoy the Award night, while others criticized him for his comments. One of the users asked, “What does woke mean, guys? I’d love to know!”

Another coaxed, “Being woke is far better than killing a few hundred thousand people, but you don’t seem to condemn the latter.”

A user quipped, “You think if Oppenheimer wins it’s because it’s woke?”

One person said, “Get lost.”

Followed by one saying, “You’re such a loser. Such a hater. You’re such a sad, miserable creature.”

“Way to diminish people’s life’s work and rewards. What is wrong with you? Jesus,” added one.

One said, “It’s kinda like the Special Olympics.”

And, “Strongest class of nominees in years. Nothing woke about creative expression.”

Previously, Elon Musk criticized the corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, and his latest ‘woke’ comment might have been connected to that. In January, he said that DEI is just another term for racism.
