    Angelina Jolie in A Mighty Heart.

    I struggle with this. Angelina is admittedly good in A Mighty Heart. Even nomination worthy. But her casting is very problematic. Even if Mariane Pearl approved it. They were better off getting Thandie Newton.

    Yeah I agree. Pearl wanted her to do the role despite being white, which is tricky in and of itself – but it might have been better had they not then clearly attempted to make her look more like Pearl.

    That whole Ridley Scott movie about Exodus i think, whitewashed as hell.

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" | Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird", THE GOOD LORD BIRD in ALL CATEGORIES | Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" | Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" | MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" | Jane Levy for "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist"

    Cripface is when a nondisabled actor is cast in a disabled role. It gives the idea that those with disabilities aren’t the best ones to tell their own stories.

    Honestly, it’s not Yellowface but Ken Jeong in The Hangover has harmed Asian representation and reinforced stereotypes to no end, and him and Todd Phillips need to be called out on it more.

    Come on people, grow up. There are far more important things to get your knickers in a knot about. These conversations started from a very important place but are now just so goddam tiresome people are just turning away from the actually important things.
