Actress Stacey Dash says Hollywood snubbed the smash hit “American Sniper” at the Oscars because of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the RNC.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: How pervasive are politics in Hollywood right where we can’t even watch the Oscars? Everybody has their freedom of speech but you would think there would be some who feel a different way now. Are there some being silenced?

Stacey Dash: Oh yeah, being silenced. And I think they are so chummy with this administration. They love it so much…

Brian Kilmeade: But, let me ask you something. Clint Eastwood, 84 years old does the American sniper. Now, it seems Hollywood liked “The Hurt Locker.” They liked “Lone Survivor.” What’s the problem? Was Clint Eastwood the problem with American Sniper” do you think because he was at the RNC talking to the chair?

Stacey Dash: Probably. I would say probably. Which is so sad. It’s Clint Eastwood. And that film was the most beautiful film I’ve seen in a very long time.
