#OscarsSoWhite the only time a Black person is nominated, let alone wins, is if they're in a role as a slave or the help.

johnnycee Wrote: One has to see all of the nominated movies and the roles the various actors played in them to properly judge whether or not the actor should be nominated, this is why the Academy has a nominating committee and unlike some awards this particular award does not rely on box office draw or fan favorites, there are other venues for that.
Dutch Wrote: All these awards are ridiculous; all actors are "actors" and they are paid well for it. These awards are so phoney; putting "feathers" up their butts by themselves. That is great acting. I act every day but the only award I get is "go clean the kitchen" !!
