    Halle Berry is Biracial so I think the real problem is with black women. One weird thing I remember: Americans are too weird about race. I remember a very weird Deadline Hollywood Daily article which “considered Antonio Banderas a people of colour”. Antonio Banderas is white. That same DHD article “considered Anya Taylor-Joy a people of colour”. Anya Taylor-Joy is white

    Anya is a person of color, as is Banderas. Anya is white passing though and that’s the issue here. We cannot negate people’s actually races and heritages but we can call out then benefitting from being white Passing. It’s like Aubrey Plaza technically she is part Latin but she’s white passing, she has an exotic flare to her but you can also cast her in a (traditional) white film. So for me it has more to do with actual presentation and skin color than true race.

    I would love for this thread to be a celebration of WOC in acting.

    Tessa Thompson, Tang Wei, Ruth Negga, Alfre Woodard, Gabrielle Union.

    A celebration of the billion overlooked over a 95 year history.

    Can we please stop derailing these very serious discussions with this Ana de Armas bullshit? Not even the one drop rule would maker her a person of color. She’s about POC as Marion Cotillard. STOP.

    I misread, but this is even worse than the de Armas thing. Anya Taylor-Joy is even whiter than de Armas. Both her parents are entirely traceably English, Scottish, and Spanish.

    I won’t even predict her to get nominated. This category is dedicated to white women and that is final. We need to focus on NAACP and BET because I don’t know how someone would think Michelle Williams is more deserving of a nomination than Danielle Deadwyler. A black woman can’t pull off the Andrea feat in a billion years a black woman has to give the greatest performance of all time in the best film of all time for people to agree she’s worthy. Now they nominate Tar in major categories to give Blanchett an unnecessary third win like they did with Mcdormand two years ago. They should rename it “best white actress in a leading role”.

    Danielle Deadwyler gave the performance of the year.

    ‘People of Colo(u)r’ is a racist term used by NIMBY white people in an effort to absolve themselves…

    The bottom is, the industry does not view a leading role by a WOC as an Oscar-caliber performance, and that will be evident when/if Michelle Yeoh loses that Oscar for another boring Oscar bait performance by a white woman. And the one time they did, it was by a biracial woman – one with at least one white parent. The movie industry is the most transparent group of elitists.

    And people here just need to stop using that “De Armas is a WOC” just to discredit the obvious. She can pass for white, and the fact that she’s playing a white American icon is enough to support that.

    Beautifully said. I agree. Billion women overlooked in the last 95 years
