Rich, black Hollyweirdos are now complaining about not getting trophies. Blacks have gone from playing maids and butlers, from pimps and prostitutes, to leading significant roles, but now it’s all about the trophy.
White enablers pretend to care, but don’t expect a lot of empty chairs at the Oscar’s, because the sympathy of white Liberals for idiotic “black” causes goes only so far, when there is a red carpet event to attend.
I can’t blame them, however. You’ve worked hard in your craft and it’s time to get your meaningless recognition that apparently wasn’t satisfied by a payday that would feed a Third World nation for a year.
So what’s the bruhaha all about? Diversity. Fairness. Blackness.
We are told that blacks are not getting enough awards, even considered. Here are the facts from the past 15 years of minority winners:
Best Actor in a Leading Role
- Denzel Washington, “Training Day” (2001) — He also was voted America’s Favorite Movie Star in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2012, and 2014.
- Jamie Foxx, “Ray” (2004)
- Forest Whitaker, “The Last King of Scotland” (2006)
Best Actor in a Supporting Role
- Morgan Freeman, “Million Dollar Baby” (2004)
- Benicio del Toro, “Traffic” (2001)
Best Actress in a Leading Role
- Halle Berry, “Monster’s Ball” (2001)
Best Actress in a Supporting Role
- Jennifer Hudson, “Dreamgirls” (2006)
- Mo’Nique, “Precious” (2009)
- Octavia Spencer, “The Help” (2011)
- Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years a Slave” (2013)
This doesn’t take into account the number of times blacks and other non-whites have been nominated. And if you look at meaningful Oscars, like Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, etc, blacks have received almost 12 percent of the awards, and make up about 13 percent of the population. If you want to go a step further, you should know that blacks are not 13 percent of the acting pool, thus the 12 percent is actually high, per capita.
But don’t expect rich black Hollyweird “victims” to care. The narrative for them is set. They deserve the awards…period!
