Boycott The Oscars!

Yeah, that's what Nada Pinkett Smith and others are doing. Even the host, Chris Rock may "join the cause". The reason? No black actors were nominated.....

Not a single one nominated at all???! Wow, that is extremely surprising- I can understand that causing a lot of unrest in the black community.

The Oscars suck anyway, total wankerfest. Especially last year with all their political bullshit. Besides they allways pick the most lame movies that nobody cares about. But I dont think anyone deserves anything just because the color of their skin.

I never understood the allure, or appeal, to a cabal of pedantic artistic dickbags judging one another. But, having said that, does anyone know the stats for black actors/actresses relative to other ethnicities, and if so, was there even a significant performance by such? When I notice these events it seems typical that the group that feels slighted makes up a small fraction of the pool of candidates. So let's say there were 20 people, 2 of which were black, and those two individuals starred in garbage movies - there would be a glaring logical hole if either were nominated, even if to placate a bunch of mouth breathers

The only significant performance I'm aware of was by her HUSBAND, for Concussion.....

Think about why the Oscars suck arse - When has a zombie movie been put up for Best Picture. Like Dawn of the Dead 1978. And a few of the greatest crimes the Oscars have commited was not giving Star Wars the Oscar for Best Pictue in 1977, and not given Joe Pilato a nod for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Cpt Rhodes in Day of the Dead 1985. :stagger: :stagger: :stagger: :stagger:
