About a year ago I joined those concerned with how the Oscars nominations list was transfixed in unrepresentative time warp. Fast forward to last week, and seems little has changed.
Did any minority actors give performances ‘worthy’ of an Oscar? That seems a fair question until you realize the default answer has been mostly no in the history of the Academy.
The writers for films starring minorities get nominations – yet the actors themselves are overlooked.
I love this not so tongue-in-cheek look at the way to win an Oscar as a person of color by the Academy of Motion Pictures.
