Music Video of the Day: Hollywood Ending by Starcrawler (2019, dir by Gilbert Trejo)


Since today is Oscar nomination day, I decided that today’s music video of the day should be about Hollywood.

Or, at the very least, it should have Hollywood in the title.

This video presents us with a Hollywood that is the exact opposite of Hollywood glitz.  It’s a Hollywood of cheap motels, too much makeup, and cigarette haze.  However, it’s also a Hollywood where you can actually find a working VHS player and I guess there’s something to be said for that.  This video is kind of depressing but kind of fun at the same time.  I have a weakness for the film’s combination of trash and satire.

“Marilyn Monroe” makes an appearance, as she certainly should.  When you’re reading about the Oscar nominations later today, just remember that Marilyn Monroe is both one of the most iconic Hollywood figures of all time and also someone who was never nominated for an Oscar.

(That said, she did appear in one of the greatest of the best picture winners, All About Eve.)

Enjoy!
