The Oscars 2016 | 88th Academy Awards

Post by Peccadillo on Tue Jan 19, 2016 12:21 am

Oscars coming up lets talk about it.. Lets start with Spike Lee's comments about boycotting due to perceived racism.

The comments really get on my nerves to be honest. I am sorry but there have been a number of "non-white" people who have been represented as the Oscars either as nominees or as winners. In fact I imagine in some cases being a white director or actor probably hinders your chances if your up against a good film or role that tackles black civil rights etc etc.

Whilst bearing in mind its only really relevant looking at recent history for obvious reasons I think 13% of Americas population are reasonably represented. I don't have time to research the percentage of black actors and directors in Hollywood or media in general but I imagine it is a lesser number even lower than 13%.. Should people boycott the Superbowl because there is an over-representation of African Americans? Get a grip - the best actors and best directors and best films get nominated on merit - sure there are always some bad snubs and the Oscars certainly has a certain appetite but its got nothing to do with race.

Isn't it time to get over it? I am not trying to say that racism doesn't exist in America but I really don't think it exists in such a ultra-liberal organisation who has a black president. Doesn't constantly banging on about it only perpetuate this supposed rift?!

What black actors were snubbed exactly? Straight Outta Compton? Does anyone seriously believe this deserved best picture or that any of its actors were deserving of an Oscar? Concussion? I haven't seen it tbh but the reviews on RT and Metacritic are hardly astounding. I rate Will Smith as an actor and think he could get an Oscar one day if the right role in the right films comes along. Of course some black actors and directors did get snubbed - the biggest probably being Idris Elba for supporting - but so did an even greater number of non-black actors and directors.

I think its more likely that Jews (who happen to be white) are over represented in Hollywood. Where does Spike draw the line? He's careful not to make it a black/white issue but it obviously is! This could be the third consecutive year for a Mexican to take best director! Stop being a baby Spike - the Oscars don't need to keep giving hack job awards to the likes of Jamie Foxx over far better actors to keep the peace.

Listening to Spike Lee will only make your life shorter. He's as racist as they come.

Haven't seen all of the movies up for best picture nor I have seen all of the actor/actress nominees so I'll withhold my judgement on those, but I will say this just as I said in the Movie thread.

The anger from the black community is misplaced here. If more parts are given to actors of color more often, they will be in better positions to get Oscar-winning roles. It's that simple. That decision lies with the studios, the producers, directors, casting companies etc. That means the blame lies with them. All the Academy can do is decide on the best based on who was nominated. They have no real power to change what's happening here.

Well, it is taking a turn for the better next few years. The only color producers care about is green. Black people need to vote with their dollars. No one watched concussion at all. Only good black movie that was a success was straight out of Compton.

I still hope they audition and give roles to black actors in race neutral roles though. I for one loves the MBJ choice as Johnny Storm. Want more people to get the same chance. But we have to vote with our money to change it.

The kid from Dope and the kid from Me and Earl needs more of those roles. They were great.

Absolutely agree with you Armadillo. We all know how crazily opinionated Spike Lee is. And that's nothing wrong in itself. It only becomes a bit foolish when most of his comments are irrelevant or not logical.

There are black actors who have made it to mainstream success over the years. Will SMith, Jamie Foxx, Sam Jackson. There are new ones which are making waves, getting roles and even praised and worshipped world wide like Idris, Michael B, David Oyelowo.

And then there is also this

I agree with this. And not only that. How about stop making Tyler Perry esque all black movies. The casual Think Like a Man movie is okay every now and then. But MIX actors of colour with the white ones in actual movies with GOOD potential because that's when more people and movie goers will get behind their talent and pay to watch these actors and movies. And I'm not talking about 20-80 mixing, make it close to 50/50. Make it noticeable so that people can see and talk about how "this film used mixed race to a success." And start cutting down on racial stereotypes in mainstream Hollywood.

Also, black actors really haven't got it that hard. They're the most fairly represented minority. Hispanics and Asians on the other hand can't seem to get any big roles. The only big upcoming Hispanic star is Oscar Isaac, and I'd guess 90% of the average moviegoer thinks he's white, because he looks that way.

Can't name an asian movie star other than Jackie Chan, and even he's very stereotypical.

Overall the problem is still there. But I don't think there is a need to divide races. Instead the people in power should actually use their money to promote good movies that feature a representative view on society. They keep making these shit "black" movies with nothing but black people that are so shit it makes me cry Laughing

I'm pretty sure in most of these. Biggest question mark is best supporting actress. But I think Vikander is leading that race after winning the critic's choice

Yeah agree with all your predictions Freeze. Spotlight defo deserves that Best Screenplay over Ex Machina which someone above picked. However I think things will get interesting if George Miller picks up Best Director at the SAGs after winning it at the Critics Choice.

I didn't think it was outstanding acting at all to be honest. As for Fassbender, the best film he was in last year was Macbeth, I'll leave it at that. Great movie. The Martian was decent, for example, I would put Creed in there over it, although I can see why Creed was omitted.

TBH I'm not even sure what the criteria is for any of these nominations with regards to performances. That's the problem with subjective awards I suppose.

All this outrage over Elba getting snubbed for Beasts Of No Nation. Idrisozet did not get snubbed because he is black, Beasts got snubbed overall because of anti Netflix politics. It is a top 5 movie of the year for sure.

Haven't seen it yet. It sounded like a Blood Diamond spin off with the villain.

I felt it was a bit closer to Last King of Scotland myself.

Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not quite sure it was strong enough for a Best Picture nod, but Elba absolutely should've been nominated.

Exactly. It is shades of Blood Diamond and Last King of Scotland, thats why it felt rather same old, same old to me. It's good but personally it didn't impress me. Elba was okay.

I can confirm Tom Hooper doesn't have a clue about the basic form of human emotion that is in every single person on Earth regardless of any classification, included, as it is in this case, sexuality.

He cares more about the taste of an Oscar it seems. But it looks like more than enough critics found him out fortunately.

Oh and Kate Winslet deserves that Best Supporting Actress more than Vikander.
