Also, I read a good that helped me put the Oscars into perspective. It claims that without the Oscars Hollywood would have less incentive to for creating films dealing with subject matters of substance. I can see thatho cares honestly

Oscars have never not been political



I agree that it has never been not political but Ellen sent a clear message with that joke that basically said from the start that if 12 years wins, it basically has nothing to do with merit. And them finding dirt on the 2 old geezers not even bothering to watch the movie only confirms that thinking. That the movie wasn't worthy in the first place.
Also they should make it mandatory for the voters to see all the films that they are voting on.

I knew they would do this and Ellen's barb only confirmed that mindset. They're telling you that 12 years was not good but that we must appease those mediocre negroes who will otherwise hit the roof if we don't recognize them, even when they don't deserve it. They know what they're doing. If I were the director, I'd be pissed with that "there, there" spin on his award win.

And another thing, nobody talks about Ellen's cheap shot. Everybody's focused on how funny she is and the only reproach they have for her is that joke on Liza Minelli.

But don't we know that YT folks are like that already?

Of course they think that they're deserving of everything they have because if they didn't, they'd have to suffer with the shame of the truth. The truth being that they acquired their wealth, status and power through the horrific abuses of others

We also already know that White people LOVE ignoring the important matters of race in place for stupid little trivial things like how Ellen poked fun at Liza. They have barely talked about why 12 Years was so important of a movie

I'm more excited that this film will be shown in schools despite my issues with the film

Only 2? That's pretty good. Most voters don't watch all of the films honestly.  That's not a secret.

Sure, we already know this. Doesn't mean we should ignore it. I'm surprised that black folks don't even seem to register her "joke" at all and the implications behind it. No one in the media, not even the black media even mentioned it. This is strange to me. When I first started watching the show, I thought Ellen was funny and I was grinning until her comment. It kinda ruined the experience for me.

And frankly, I'm excited at potentially seeing Solomon Northup's book enter the curriculum just like Anne Frank's Diary. The movie was a good vehicle for that but it shouldn't be focused on as much as the actual memoir.

Only 2 who admitted it. And I know most voters don't watch all the films but in the case of the first black director to ever win an Academy award, this works against us because it discredits his work. How you gonna say that the piece is socially significant and therefore deserving of an award if you don't even know what the piece says? And most significantly, the fact that they didn't see it got leaked. The comments on the net are disturbing.

my friend just went on an Alias_Avi rant about how black men ain't sh*t....she's on a film forum and you know people have been saying Lupita should play STORM from XMen bc STORM is Kenyan in the novel and dark.  And black men on the forum saying "no she's too dark!" "black women are just pumping her up! she's not even pretty."  She was sooo upset.

she just told me she wanted Lupita to date a white men so she can do what nig.gas have been doing for eons. lmao.
