    Blaeks didn't get into the Oscars?

    WHAAAAAAAAA!

    Is it really possible that a black person did not act or make a good film in a year? Is it necessary to call in Al Sharpton to march? Or to hear peanut head Spike Lee say "fuck em"?

    Get over it.

    no, not possible. the fact that everyone in selma over-acted should mean nothing. nominate them whether they deserve the damn thing or not.
    sidney poitier is a perfect example of an awful actor who is always praised (and happens to be black) and always played the same role in everything he was in.
    forest whittaker is an example of a brilliant actor who is subtle, natural and happens to be black.

    The whole Selma march has been covered over and over and over and over.

    That might be part of the problem.

    You had me and then lost me with Poitier. He did play some similar characters, but he was a fantastic actor. To Sir with Love, In the Heat of the Night......great work there. Hasn't done much in a long time, but back then.....

    Forest Whittaker is black? I can't get past that fucking eye of his to even see his skin color.


    I am racist toward people with messed up eyes.

    Just wait until next year after Al installs his cronies to the boards of every studio and to the Academy, then we will see the upcoming "Barbershop 3" pick up 15 nominations! :brotha:

    Just like Beth he suffers from Atchaforiya. One eye is looking at you the other is looking for you!

    The only time I have ever agreed with Sharpton was when Soul Plane was not up for any awards at the 2005 Oscars. That seemed way overlooked and a bit racist to me. :dontknow:

    Try again next year, Oprah. And try not to rewrite history; that strategy seems to have backfired for a second year in a row.

    It just means next year as an apology, dark african--barely able to speak english-actors will win all four acting awards.

    "And the Oscar goes to... click click, popop."

    And the acceptance speech..
