    Is fucking enraging. Wtf are these morons talking about? Okay there weren't any black people nominated this year.....so fucking what? Maybe they just weren't good enough!

    There are only a handful of people nominated. It's quite possible that the people that were nominated were better.... no?

    These assholes saying the black people should have a separate Oscars are retarded and it is one of the dumbest fucking things I've ever heard. They want equal and no segregation but try to segregate every goddamn thing there is.

    And people are carrying on about this bullshit. They're MOVIE AWARDS! Wgaf!

    Al Sharpton implied that a black person should be nominated every year. Wtf?

    And everyone keeps saying there should be black people nominated but I wanna hear them say on the record exactly who should be nominated and whose place they should take. It's easy to say we should have some nominated but harder to say X was better than Y because of PC nonsense.

    It's not racism there weren't any great performances by black actors this year. Samuel L. Jackson was good in Hateful 8 I guess. I haven't seen Creed so I don't know how good Michael Jordan was in it. The Academy would never nominate a movie like Straight Outta Compton they run from movies like that.

    So the BET Awards hate the WET awards. One is all black nominees and one is all white nominees. I don't get it. I can't keep up with today's crazy world and rules. :dontknow:

    Will Smith and his publicists are mad because Concussion was like the 4th or 5th straight flop he's been in and he was counting on hype from an Oscar nomination to up dvd sales of the movie. Fucking idiot turned down Independence Day 2.

    The best movie of last year that got snubbed across the board was Ex Machina. Best movie of 2015 by far.

    Why not just have every category be like this?

    Best Performance by a White Actor in a Leading Role
    Best Performance by a Black Actor in a Leading Role
    Best Performance by an Asian Actor in a Leading Role
    Best Performance by a Latino Actor in a Leading Role
    Best Performance by an Other Actor in a Leading Role

    It is worth a watch, but by no means Oscar worthy.

    In today's world of people feeling they have been left out or neglected on purpose, they might have to combine all the award shows and go to this set up. Crazy.
