    I noticed that Tarantino is in a bit of trouble recently. Now this topic may already exist on GD already, if it is, I’m sorry, but if not, what do you think? Is this a blessing or a curse for The Hateful Eight’s chances at the Oscars?

    Will Quentin Tarantino hurt Oscar potential of ‘The Hateful Eight’?

    We were talking about this in the above thread.

    It always amazes me when telling the truth is a controversy.

    I hope it helps. He got a lot of flack (deserved, I think) for dismissing black critics in an interview with Bret Easton Ellis, so publicly standing up for black lives was a step in the right direction.

    Unfortunately, the academy is sometimes pretty tone-deaf when it comes to race, so they might not like Tarantino “stirring up shit,” like one secret academy member was quoted as saying about “I can’t breathe” shirts at a “Selma” premiere.

    You know the people who are going to come up the smeer campaigns for this movie are hackling over their keyboards like a witch hackling over her cauldron.

    Well, I didnt care for everything he said, but I do agree that skin colour is irrelevant, at least when it comes to Tarantino. I agree with Antoine Fuqua, who has said that Quentin doesnt have a racist bone in his body. If I didnt, I’d be challenged about seeing any of his movies…and I’ve seen them all. Lol.

    Btw Daniel, do you recall our conversation about Armond White? Long time ago…..
