The affirmative Action Oscar goes to, drum roll please
In 2002, Will Smith was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Ali, but he lost. He must have lost to some white actor or actress right? Wrong, Will Smith lost to Denzel Washington who won the Oscar for Best Actor in Training Day. Surely racism reared it's ugly head at the Oscars in 2007 when Will Smith was nominated for and lost again in the Best Actor Award category for his role in The Pursuit of Happiness. Oh wait Forest Whitaker beat Will Smith for his role in The Last King of Scotland. So to recap, Will Smith was nominated twice for an Academy Award and both times he lost to other black actors. Will did win a slew of NAACP Image Awards. #NAACPIMAGEAWARDSSOBLACK. Fox News contributor Stacey Dash weighed in on this fake controversy.
It's no secret that I can't stand Hollywood due to it's warped minded political stupidity but the committee which is responsible for nominating films doesn't have a problem in how it nominates films. It's been doing it for many decades before Spike Lee and Will and Jada Smith were even born. Their ego's must be fully inflated if they think that they will be missed by them boycotting the Oscars. I doubt many other black actors and actresses will join their boycott, because they won't dare jeopardize their careers to support a bunch of self serving, spoiled hypocrites.
