    A lot of people seem to be assuming that Ruth Negga just got in because of #oscarsowhite.  It got me curious about past races, and it was actually pretty easy to find parallels.

    Negga got traction with a Critics Choice nom, and a boatload of others (39, based on a loose IMDB ‘find key’ search – the same number as Emma Stone, and more than Adams, Bening, Streep, and Blunt), while getting none of the usual precursors.

    Its actually happened 3 years in a row now  – Charlotte Rampling in 2015 and Marion Cotillard in 2014.  I would even offer Quvenzhane Wallis as ample evidence too, if you believe (like me) that a Golden Globe nomination is meaningless.

    Obviously every season is different, but there seems to be a clear lesson: don’t underestimate the critic’s favorite.

    The only ones complaining were the bitter Amy Adams fans. They shouldn’t be blaming her or Streep for missing the nom. Adams may have been on more ballots but Negga just had more #1 votes. And that’s that on that and they need to get over it.

    It’s still a throwaway nomination on a film that didn’t get mentioned for anything else.

    I have a feeling that the people complaining are people who didn’t even see the movie and don’t know who she is. The unknown girl with the movie nobody saw gets all the hate. Watch the movie and see for yourself why she’s a very fine nominee. Wanna place the blame on somebody? First, we’ll never know since it’s a system with those #1 votes and all that shit, and Second, since we don’t know anything, let’s go with performance alone, so blame Streep who had the so-so performance, not Negga for Adams and her snub.

    Ruth Negga and Loving had glowing reviews, raves and all of that, and like the original post says, a lot of precursors, just not the big ones. She did get a Globe nod, which might not seem like a real thing to people, but she was seen on television twice as a nominee (Critic’s Choice too). She’s not somebody who just happened to join the race at the last minute. She was always there, just as quite as her performance.

    And as many of us mentioned last year, #oscarssowhite was gonna take away merit from several future black nominees, and here we are.

    Like Kathy Bates in Misery and Jessica Lange in Blue Sky?

    When you guys dislike a black nominee you place the blame on PC pressure. This happened prior to the social media uproar.

    Or Charlize Theron in Monster. Or Forest Whitaker in Last King of Scotland.

    Of course you know certain people’s rules, “if I didn’t see it, it doesn’t deserve shit”. I suppose Kristen Bell for Bad Moms would’ve been a better nominee.

    Ruth Negga earned every ounce of her Oscar nomination. Actually watch “Loving” before throwing around needless hate targeted at her for no good reason.

    Blame #oscarsowhite for this. Blame those twitter idiots. Those PC morons. I’d say something but I don’t want to repeat myself. Everyone here knows my stance on this particular subject. PC culture is destroying our society.
    If only Negga got SAG nom, there would be no one saying anything about her nom being affirmative action. It’s just hard to understand for some that she got in with only GG nom alone (who’s BFCA?) without passion that we saw when it came to Huppert. Even I still don’t understand how this wonderful understated performance got in. I do believe it was a little bit of affirmative action but this kind of I don’t mind cause Negga totally deserved it!

    No one was shocked at the nominations for Denzel, Viola, Octavia and Mahershala. So if Ruth got in and everyone was surprised then that definitely means something is not right. My only gripe is that if they had to implement affirmative action and fill a quota then they should’ve done it with Taraji who was better than Ruth.

    As far as Amy is concerned then IMO she didn’t even deserve to be nominated. Her performance in Arrival was so “basic” (for the lack of a better word).

    Ruth got the same nominations at the big awards (CC, GG, SAG and BAFTA) that Huppert did. Perhaps people just liked her performance.

    You’re the one suspicious of nonwhite nominees. Unless you’ve already approved of their work. You think their presence in a slate is pure PC peer pressure. Bullshit. 2016 had quality nonwhite productions to choose from.
