In recent weeks,the controversy surrounding the recent Academy Awards/Oscars nominations have gotten quite an uproar from many people,from actress Laurene Landon complaining that Tom Hardy should have gotten an best Actor Oscar nom(even though he’s up for a Best Supporting Actor nomination for THE REVENANT) to many black performers and filmmakers complaining about the lack of any black names being among this year’s nominees(although STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON has been nominated for Best Screenplay).
Now,many people have been reacting and counter reacting upon this controversy,ranging from the likes of Jada Pinkett,Will Smith,and Spike Lee vowing that they’re boycott the Oscars to Chalotte Rampling,Michael Caine,and Ice Cube throwing in their two cents,too,for whether it’s about complaining about yearning for more icing,telling actor(and actresses) to be patient(which they truly have to),or claiming that it’s all reverse racism,the main villains here are the Oscar voters who snub a lot of talented people(Of Any Nationality)regularly every year,leaving them completely out in the cold while they gain new fans from their captivating performances. Maybe the Academy Awards board ought to expand the category range in the departments of Best Actor,Best Actress,Best Director,Best Supporting Actor,and Best Supporting Actress as they did with the Internet fanboy-inspired 10 chosen people as they did with the Best Picture category several years agojust to make everyone happy.
Otherwise,Oscar winning music composer Quincy Jones summed up this situation best: “Either we can complain about it,or we can fix it.” Indeed,man.
