This is pissing ne off. They know this stuff but stay silent. Same thing with Gal Gadot just now speaking up against Joss Weadon. She allowed for Ray Fisher to look like the bad guy and the “angry Black man.” Meanwhile, she stayed silent. Now, people are upset with Weadon after she spoke up.
The Globes backlash was out surrounding not having Black members, only Black people in Hollywood were speaking up. But, when Scarlett Johansson say “sexism”, the whole damn show will likely get canceled. I’m over these Hollywood bitches.May 11, 2021 at 6:07 pm #1204251613

I think timing is everything for everyone. Halle was huge in the era of the last Superstars. I think her build-up was similar to Jennifer Lawrence in a way. Both had critically acclaimed performances before winning BA. Lawrence was in Winter’s Bone and Berry’s was in Dorothy Dandridge. Berry is often called the most beautiful woman in the world, so, to see her “ugly” her self up turns the Academy on. Plus, there had been no woman of color to win BA and many felt it was time.
When it comes to after her win, Halle did have some hit films. I feel like people have purposely tried to demolish her work after her Oscar win because they did not care for her win. Halle, til this day, gets attacked by craze fans who say “this or that Black actress should have been the first to win…” Halle has starred in Blockbusters after her win and she has had some great moments. Her performances in Things We’ve Lost in The Fire and Frankie & Alice were incredible. She was great in Cloud Atlas. She did well on her TV show Extant. Berry had an Iconic moment in Die Another Day (the swimsuit moment). I think the media and many people tend to focus on her bad moments and they ignore her good moments. Halle won at a time where there were not many films of Blacks being made. So, she was given less opportunity. I love everything about Halle. Her acting, her class, and she is absolutely gorgeous (IDC come at me).
That is why I root for her every year. I hope Bruised is good and it puts her back in the conversation.May 10, 2021 at 7:08 pm #1204250147
2020 was the worst year in cinema since I’ve been alive.May 10, 2021 at 7:06 pm #1204250145
I love her in Stage Door. Both Ginger Roger’s and Hepburn were Oscar worthy in that film.May 10, 2021 at 12:49 pm #1204249541
Kate ate The Lion In Winter up and left no crumbs.May 10, 2021 at 12:25 am #1204248830
Farrah Fawcett should have been a huge film star. Her performances in the 80s were incredible.May 9, 2021 at 9:47 pm #1204248710
I do think McDormand was going to win a 3rd acting Oscar but I did not know this soon.May 9, 2021 at 9:41 pm #1204248708
Twitter and Media companies are going to ruin award’s season for good. It is crazy how actors now have “stans.” Of course, people have always had their favorite actors but nowadays, people on social media are acting like complete a****** idiots if their favorite star doesn’t win or get nominated.
Also, I feel like every time someone Black doesn’t win, people will scream “racism” or every time someone Black wins, people will scream “they won because they’re Black.”
Media companies are social media are the worst.May 9, 2021 at 8:19 pm #1204248681
I am quite bitter that Laura Linney won absolutely nothing for Ozark “Fire Pink.” She lost the Emmy, GG, CC, SAG, and TCA.
This is going to cause a fight (IDC) but Zendaya should have NOT won the Emmy…..
