I am so disappointed in Black Actors in Hollywood. Every year, I hear them crying about the acting categories. In times, they are justified in their rants but what about the other categories. I can’t name a single time I’ve heard a Black actor mention other fields in film and TV. Are there not Black writers, Black cinematographers, Black sound editors and mixers, Black stunt teams, Black Production designers, Black directors, or Black costume designers. It is so frustrating. Their obsessions with fame, being the center of attention, and being at the level of Whites has clouded their minds into believing they are the only important ones regarding filmmaking. There were 5 Black acting nominees this year. How many Black cinematographers were nominated? How many Black directors were nominated? How many Black writers were nominated? What about Black sound editors? As a Black writer myself, this makes my blood boil. We’re expected to fight for them but they will remain silent for us. This is straight bulls***
– I’m done ranting!
Black film writers usually carry the burden of addressing all the other areas aside from acting with a lack of Black recognition or diversity.May 17, 2021 at 4:41 pm #1204259209
She’s finished hun and her stans need to know that

Exactly! She shouldn’t have to resort to supporting to win another Oscar! She deserves to win lead!!
I think we should first talk about the numerous black actors who don’t have an Oscar being recognized. Viola has nothing left to prove as she has won the Triple Crown of acting and is a GOAT. We need other people of colour to be recognized for their talent the way she was, not just her being rewarded again and again just because they like her. I mean SAG snubbed Regina King in 2018 and Andra Day this year, with much better performances and nominated Margot Robbie and Adams instead. Of course, if her performance is stellar, she should win a second but Ma Rainey’s was just not an Oscar worthy performance imho.May 17, 2021 at 9:42 pm #1204259420
She’s finished hun and her stans need to know that
I’ll probably regret asking but why do you think this? I can understand being incredibly annoyed by her stans, and I can believe you don’t think she’s an interesting actress, but she’s already been cast in upcoming leading roles by awards magnate-type producers and/or directors and/or actors such as Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg (although I’m unsure if the latter two took an active role in casting decisions on Maestro), and she’s “only” 35. Is this another remark whose humor I’m missing or do you seriously think Carey Mulligan’s time as an Oscar nominated actress is “finished?” If so, why?May 17, 2021 at 11:14 pm #1204259523
When I think more about this, it is such an inspiring win.
Like what our legend McDormand told us in her speeches,
1997: “I congratulate producers for allowing directors to make autonomous casting decision based on qualification, not just market value”
2018: “If I might be so honored to have all the female nominees in every categories stand with me in this room tonight”
She goes on to pick a WOC with no previous name recognition to direct her movie. She talks the talk and walks the walk. She earns respect. That’s the reason she wins.
2021: “I have no words. My voice’s in my sword. We know the sword is our work” All her sentence come in full circle. She does not need to campaign. Her choice and her work campaigned for her.
What McDormand, Colman, Moore and Bullock have collectively taught us the best way to win an Oscar or get ahead in life is to earn respect through every day work. You can’t stress. You can’t beg. It does not matter how many nominations you get, how good you look, how heavily you campaign. At the end of the day, it is all about respect.
