tumblr_nuz5w5PogI1taydc5o1_400not bad snoop.
i wonder who is next to be brave?
i’d love to hear what some of the ones with rabid stans have to say.
you know most of them keep quiet.

well the academy is feeling the heat from all this backlash.
they collectively released statements in response.
this is a few excerpts from “the hollywood reporter”:

Penelope Ann Miller, best known for Carlito’s Way and The Artist, is a member of the actors branch that could have nominated Creed‘s Michael B. Jordan, Concussion‘s Will Smith, The Hateful Eight‘s Samuel L. Jackson or Beasts of No Nation‘s Idris Elba. “I voted for a number of black performers, and I was sorry they weren’t nominated,” she tells THR. “But to imply that this is because all of us are racists is extremely offensive. I don’t want to be lumped into a category of being a racist because I’m certainly not and because I support and benefit from the talent of black people in this business. It was just an incredibly competitive year.”

Miller, who is coming off of John Ridley’s American Crime and is headed to Sundance with Nate Parker’s slave drama The Birth of a Nation, continues, “I loved Beasts of No Nation, and I loved Idris Elba in it — I just think not enough people saw it, and that’s sometimes what happens. Straight Outta Compton was a great film; I think it just lost some Academy members who are older. There were a lot of omissions of white people that I think were just as disappointing — I’m sure [Spotlight‘s] Michael Keaton is bummed, you know?”

Another member of the actors branch, who wishes to remain anonymous, says, “I’m very offended by the idea that some people are calling us racists — race was the furthest thing from my mind when I cast my ballot, and in fact I nominated one person of color for an award. Such a sweeping declaration is extremely irresponsible.”

Jeremy Larner, a member of the writers branch — which did nominate Compton‘s (white) writers for best original screenplay — was a civil rights activist in the 1960s and won an Oscar for 1972’s The Candidate. “I cannot prove the Academy or anyone else is not racist,” he grants. But, he says in his own defense, “I have voted for many people of color for awards.” He adds, “I happen to think Straight Outta Compton is not a great film for reasons of structure and substance. I can imagine it is a powerful affirmation for those who share the assumptions of its music and see it as fans. But to me, a good film has to show a lot more than this one does.”

Larner feels that people displeased with the noms should focus their frustrations on the bigger picture. “It is not a time to make enemies among those who would move us further in the direction of fairness, freedom and justice,” he argues, referring to attempts to make voting harder for black people in many states. Miller agrees. “There were an incredible number of films in 2015 that were primarily about white people. Talk to the studios about changing that, not the Academy. There’s only so much we can do.” She adds, “I think when you make race the issue, it can divide people even further, and that’s what I worry about.”

hmm.
well i hope that they don’t just nominate any ol garbage now.
just in the name of  “making us happy”.
a bunch of kevin hart movies getting oscar noms next year.
i think every side got their “wake up call” tho.
one side is starting to see we fight back now.
we band together online and emit tremendous power in numbers.
this ain’t the old days.
there are no whips.
we will still get fed at dinner time.
lets hope it brings a positive change for the future.

lowkey: and how about jada responded to “aunt viv”?

  1. It is great that this coming to frustration and maybe more blacks in great films will be given a fair chance an acknowledged for their great work.Will, Idris, Mike, and Sam should have been given a nomination for their great performances and if anyone does not agree perform some research on the great reviews for these movies. It is great that Jada is receiving some support and Lupita and George Clooney have spoken out about the Oscars as well. I was not ready for Snoop ending. Also, where is Idris, Mike (shaky), Sam, and Morgan Freeman when you need them?

  2. I feel like the commentary from the Oscar people was one of those “I’m not racist, I voted for black people” b.s. But what have y’all done as “allies” to make sure we had our shine? Did you step up and go out on a limb for us? It’s not that we’re asking for it, but good cinema and good work deserves the credit that is due.

  3. I agree with what Snoop said, and yes Jada did handle that very classy, by the way did you’ll hear what Stacey Dash said, I’m so over her.

  4. No one is calling them racist individually, they’re trying to deflect. They’re being called out on how flawed the whole system and process of the Oscars are. It shouldn’t be so hyped and absolute.

    Jada kept it classy and respectful in her response. Snoop didn’t sugar coat it, stop fucking with the Oscars and giving them influence.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
