First of all, I haven't seriously watched the Oscars in years. They were talking about this on GMA this morning. Apparently, there is a lot of butthurt that the nominees in the top categories are all white.

Much interviewing with peope complaining about the lack of diverse city in the nominees, and that people of color should be represented. Specifically, the movie "Selma" was referenced in that it had received "critical acclaim," but got snuffed despite Oscar buzz.

Timing anyone?

Well I guess that makes Selma a shoe-in for Movie of the Year then.

does anyone EVER care what the hipocrital liberals in hollywierd think about anything?
I never watch the oscars cause I don't give a rats ass about what they think.

it's laughable what people will find to complain about

Come on guys, Sharpton is pissed. He crazy mad about this. We have to be more sensitive.

We need affirmative action for award shows!

They are racists towards plastic people. The LEGO Movie didn't get any nominations.

Why are we supposed to give a pinch of shit about a bunch of hollyweird limosine liberals? Do as they say, not as they do.

Isn't that what the BET awards are for? As for Sharpton suing the Oscar Assn., I wouldn't know who to root for. Damn them both. I want butter on my pocorn.

If they didn't deserve it, they didn't deserve it. Race isn't factoring in. What a nonsense manufactured "controversy".

This, fuck 'em. The last time I watched the Oscars was in the 70s and we only had two channels to pick from.

Probably because Selma was a steaming pile of self serving bullshit cooked up to further inflame racial tensions in this country that have been continuously egged on by the president and all of his toadies for the past six years.

In other thoughts it would be a great day if America told Hollywood to fuck off and die. I'd love it to see all of those liberal pecker-heads crawl around on their bellies looking for a way to become a productive member of society.

I never have. I watch movies to be entertained.
I dont give a shit about the actors.

Personally, I couldn't give a rat's ass about the Oscars, but this is interesting. Hollywood liberals decide what gets awarded and what agendaHollywood tries to push.. Now a different group of liberals are butthurt because the first set of liberals didn't legitimize them by awarding a film that they see as legitimizing/uplifting their current cause, because they see diefying a "gentle giant" scumbag as equivalent to Dr Martin Luther King.

So, like we are seeing with the fracturing of the support for Obama from the political side of the liberal machine, the liberal monster on the street may be devouring itself as well.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 8:45:37 AM EST
I don't give a crap about any of the awards shows. They're all getting tennis elbow from patting themselves and each other on the backs. Boring...

Hollywood is made up of liberals. Liberals voted for their liberal colleagues to receive a liberal award. In short liberals are racist.

Make a better movie, get nominated.

Pretty simple formula.

In the fiction category; I have not seen it yet but from what I have read the biggest criticism is it distorts history to hide the truth and many of the events in the movie were simply not true, some were omitted and some were given the wrong slant then left to the imagination because they did comply with the narrative they wanted to present.

How do you award an Oscar to a biography that was deliberately altered in to a fallacy for political gain?
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 8:59:38 AM EST
If anything, a lack of diversity in today's society is less racist.

...but seriously, folks

Just how bigoted do they have to be to expect an award to be given ONLY because a movie was about something in particular, and not because it was any good or not?

It doesn't matter how good the product is, it matters that they want it. It's reparations. It proves to racist America that they are racist. It fattens oprahs bank account.

I'm not sure why Hollywood couldn't be more diverse. They could have made the lead in American Sniper an African-American like Forest Whitaker or maybe Tyler Perry.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 9:19:36 AM EST
Nope. I couldn't care less about asshole actors in Hollywood.

i also don't watch any of those race baiting, white guilt movies they've been putting out lately either. 12 Years Slave, the new ML King movie, etc. Fuck them.
