The movie “12 Years a Slave” won Best Picture at the Oscars in 2014 but that should have made the race baiters happy but of course, that’s not enough for them. The staff at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences knows exactly what they’re doing. They know what is award worthy and what isn’t. They’ve always been about the talent. Regardless of skin color or race.
Does Michael B. Jordan deserve a nomination for “Creed”? No. He was good but his performance certainly wasn’t Oscar worthy.
Does Will Smith deserve a nomination for “Concussion”? I haven’t seen the movie but from what I’ve saw in the trailers so far… no.
Does Idris Elba deserve a nomination for “Beasts of No Nation”? It was a good performance and I saw the movie on Netflix but not Oscar worthy.
What about Jason Mitchell’s role as Eazy E for “Straight Outta Compton”? Well… I’ll have to agree that he deserves a nomination ’cause his performance in that film was Oscar worthy. Not sure why he got the snub. The film itself is not worthy for Best Picture, though but Jason’s performance as Eazy E should have gotten nominated.
From what I’ve seen in 2015 there weren’t that many movies with black actors in them released that year so it’s not the Academy’s fault for lack of diversity. They know what they’re doing. They’re professionals.
It’s just a lousy excuse for race baiters to divide the country even more… that’s why they go after the Oscars every year. Black people needs to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them. They need to get over themselves. This country calling everyone and everything “racist” has gone too far. I’m fed up with it.
