The Oscar's

Post by Rbjustme on Sun Jan 24, 2016 4:47 pm

People in the movie industry a crying out racism against coloured actors, due to the fact that no coloured actor has been nominated for an Oscar in the last two years. I'm not a movie buff or a follower of the Ocsar awards, but I would shudder to think that this accusation was in fact true. In fact I would go one step further and say, surely not? If so racism is a lot more prominent in the US than I thought? perhaps JTS our new member from America could give us an insight into this?

Does anyone have any thoughts, is it real or just a squeaky wheel?

That's a good question Rb, the problem is that the industry is so incestuous, only the insiders would know the real truth. My only thought is that there are some great coloured actors, and the powers to be would be cutting off their nose to spite their face if it were true? I wonder

I was thinking along the same lines Spooky, it seems a pointless exercise if it is true. Agree

There is always someone trying to stir up trouble these days, especially with racism, as Spook and Rb have said, it would be cutting off their noses to spite their face, and I agree.
