“Every N*gga Is A Star”: Moonlight Outshines The Rest

as they were reading the final names for “best picture”,
i legit was sitting there and said to myself about moonlight”

“it would be so funny if moonlight won…”

…and they announced it and i instantly screamed.
i’m so glad “moonlight” won the highest award.
it was such a good movie that touched so many in the foxhole.
i know the celebration will be heavy tonight.

everyone involved all definitely deserved it!
congrats from the foxhole!

lowkey: it was a good night for black folks at the golden globes.
viola.
tracee.
donald.
moonlight.
all who were nominated.
love.

Play nice, stay on topic, and for the love of God: NO SPAM IN THE FOXHOLE!

  1. I was watching tonight with pride so happy moonlight, viola, and Donald won. But I nearly cried when they announced tracee’s name I’ve been a big fan of hers since girlfriends and wondered back then when Hollywood was gonna she how naturally funny she is.

  2. Yes lord you know I saw me growing up as well with this it was like my story when this comes out will watch like 3 timez a year but they should’ve gave them a love scene at end

  3. I’m so happy!! I only saw the film this week (LGBT films aren’t really shown in major movie theaters in the Caribbean) and was blown away. Totally deserving of that win 😀

  4. Proud of Moonlight, but Ms.Ross was the highlight to me. Everyone was pulling for Issa Rae and wanted to celebrate her style of comedy. but so happy Tracee got hers first. She actually gave us that “Issa” effect on Girlfriends. Yeah Tracee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Some reporter asked Janelle Monae about Kim Burrell’s comments during the backstage interview with Moonlight cast in pressroom.She handled it well and basically said she is pro love and there is no place for hate.She also thanked her director for being pro inclusion.
    I am happy for Tracee and Viola and I guess I should see if I can find “Atlanta” on demand and check out the show on FX.

    • I’ve only seen the first three episodes of Atlanta. It’s a “quirky” show.
      I’ll binge watch after I finish my other shows.
      I haven’t seen any episodes of Blackish though.

  6. The Homophobic str8 Black community finna try to claim Moonlight like this Kim Burrell and Shirely Caesar drama didn’t just happen.

  7. Im guessing there’s no nakedness in Moonlight bc I haven’t seen any pics or gifs from the movie. lol

  8. Why did you title this post in such a vulgar way? To celebrate the achievements of people of colour and one of the best films I’ve ever seen about the black gay experience, you chose to lower the tone, and in a way tarnish the achievement by using the ‘N’ word to describe these successful people of colour. Shameful.

  9. Tracee Ellis Ross is not black. She’s mixed, mulatto or biracial so she should not be noted as a “black” win. In fact, to call her “black” is racist.

    • With respect, she decides her identity, and identifies as a black woman. She’s the fruit of a melinated womb, and it is the mitochondrial DNA that determines lineage. If her dad were black and dad white, biology would support your assertion (Obama – a man ‘of color’).

    • Tracee Ellis Ross IS A BLACK WOMAN because thats what she identifies with.She has the same experiences that blk woman have and had.Most blk americans have some degree of white admixture to there genes but we are still blk.

  10. Congratulations to Tracee Ellis Ross who is biracial but identifies as Black for being the first Black women to win in her category since 1983 when Debbie Allen won for Fame.
    Now let me go set my DVR to tape President Obama’s (who is also biracial but identifies as Black) farewell address on January 10, at 8pm CT. I am going to miss the Obamas, the first Black First Family.
