There’s such a small box of what Oscars consider to be a prestigious role for women to be worthy of winning an Oscar, and women of color are not given the opportunity.
I slightly disagree.
Women of color are given better opportunities nowadays, but society forgets that women of color are always last. Society looks at women of color as being under White women regardless of them all being WOMEN.
Not to go too far out but the women rights movement is not about women of color. It is all about White women. I hate being so blunt but this is the case. Michelle Williams and Jessica Chastain have pointed this out regarding the film industry and I applaud them for that.
Of course no one should vote for someone that is undeserving but there have been plethora of opportunities to nominate or award women of color. It’s all about the mindset. Things are getting better regarding the amount of roles but we need people to open up their minds as well.March 29, 2020 at 8:18 am #1203399230
Wow. I am glad this topic came back up.
This year’s Best Actress category was bullshit. The only person of color nominated was for a role of someone struggling with slavery. 2019 had MANY great roles for people of color. I think that is why people lost interest. They had to award Parasite to make up for the obvious racism when it came to the acting categories. Even the Best Actor winner pointed out how racist the BAFTA’S were. I know I am using the term racist which can seem like a stretch to some but I’m over politically correct terms. 0March 28, 2020 at 5:28 pm #1203398766

Anne Hathaway would be incredible as Audrey Hepburn.March 7, 2020 at 11:06 am #1203374209
Berry will have her Liz Taylor moment and win a 2nd truly deserving Oscar after a head scratching 1st win.
Winslet desperately working with Polanski, a guilty rapist, in hopes for a Oscar nomination will likely hold her back from a win. She will likely get nominated, but I doubt a win.

Also, Ruth Negga as Josephine Baker.March 5, 2020 at 1:42 pm #1203372361
As of now, I am currently obsessed with shows like Medici and a few other similar shows. I’d love more films on royalty from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the Americas prior to the Euro invasion.March 5, 2020 at 11:45 am #1203372263
95 was the most competitive years ever. Nicole Kidman, Rena Owens (Once Were Warriors) and Kathy Bates all gave WINNING performances and they weren’t even nominated.February 24, 2020 at 8:36 pm #1203359350
Carrey should have 3 Oscar nominations for Truman Show, Man in the Moon and Eternal Sunshine. Any of them would be worthy winners, though I’m biased towards Truman Show as maybe my favourite film of that decade.
The fact that they’ve continued snubbing him makes me cynical about cases like Adam Sandler, where some anonymous voters said ‘Oh, I’ll nominate him next time once I see Uncut Gems wasn’t a fluke’.
I would have nominated him for The Grinch as well. One of the greatest film comedic performances of all time in my opinion.February 20, 2020 at 1:50 pm #1203354148
I honestly think that she deserved most of her Grammy Awards. I do think however, Jazmine Sullivan should have won Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song for Lions, Tigers, and Bears (Beyoncé won for Single Ladies). Single Ladies would have made a great winner for Best Music Video instead.February 20, 2020 at 1:47 pm #1203354146
I love Halle Berry and I would love to see her nominated again.February 20, 2020 at 11:40 am #1203354047
The villains are what makes the Batman franchise for me. He was always boring to me. I am more excited to see the other cast members, but I do have high hopes for Robert PattinsonFebruary 11, 2020 at 9:11 pm #1203343702
I will not lie and say that The Pianist is a bad film because it is a masterpiece if you ask me, but I truly enjoyed Chicago. I thought that film was a node to older musicals from the 40s-60s. I would have easily given Best Director to Rob Marshall.
Roman should have never been given the opportunity to create The Pianist. But he has support. Look at how Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christolph Waltz, and John C Reilly supported Polanski after all of the information was out there. That shocked me even more. Hollywood supported him because many of them are abusers themselves. Harvey Weinstein wrote a open letter to support Polanski. That tells you how Hollywood works.February 11, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203342989
I think it’s due to te nominees. The Best Picture nominees were great but all of the other categories were quite questionable. I personally vowed not to watch due to the exclusion of minorities (which actually helped with the voting).
