Blacks are criticizing the Oscars, Lupita Nyong'o too joined them..

Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong'o, who won an Oscar in 2014 for Best Supporting Actress for saying a few lines in her very first movie (12 Years A Slave) is joining the few black actors who are criticizing the Academy this year for being 'so white'. I don't really get this boycott. Above is what she wrote

Observed, ride on sister, with all humility and honesty I have feelings for Linda Ikeji and would sincerely wish to meet her in person this year as part of my resolution.

AM sure she'd soon release a statement to state her account was hacked. The "it wasn't me" attitude because she didn't need to do that.

Linda y won't their be a boycott? The rate at which the white folks get nominated shows that There's so much imbalance in the selection of great art/performers even if it's not equal rating with the white actors giiven that they control the industry there should be a rating of sort to accommodate all irrespective of color.m just saying

The title of this post is very demeaning. Lupita is an exceptionally talented actress..put aside race or nationality and as an actress who lives in the US, she is expected to have a view just like David Oyelowo did. I just bow for you Linda

Ok, who's next?

SongsOfSUSSAN said...

It's about time. Blacks are even more creative.

Anonymous said...

Linda what are you saying? Are you saying blacks should not criticize an all white Oscars? Are you saying we should forever remain enslaved by the whites or do you want a free Oscar award invite so you can continue to clap for the whites as your masters. What exactly are you saying.

Anonymous said...

So if no black person gave a very compelling performance, the Academy should go ahead and nominate him/her anyway, just to be 'diverse' and 'inclusive'? In other words; just to make up 'quota'? Make una come Nigeria come ask how far with 'quota' before una start o.

Tbh, I don't think Lipitor should have won that year Abeg. What did she act in twelve years a slave. Didn't see much role in what she did. I also felt chiwetel should have won an Oscar

Anonymous said...

I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living and has made millions and millions of dollars from the very people that you're talking about boycotting just because you didn't get a nomination,

BET Awards are for Black what Oscars are for whites...I understand their pain but that's just the way it's!

Showing you idiocy supporting actors say few lines but contribute to the story. The clue is in the name best supporting actress

Hormortayo #Frosh said...

Let them criticize and protest if they like, they have the right to cuz truly Oscars has been white dominated truly... Buh Lupita shouldn't be the one to criticize, she won the award, and that gave her fame and recognition. Meanwhile every other person on her category deserved that award as much as she does and they gave it to her. So Lupita, if beans get stone, no be from beggar mouth we go hear am...

JENNY IKEJI said...

Hmmmmmm I dont even know what to say!!but they should find a way and balance this award of a thing.

The should make a stand oooooo, cos there's too much racism in the industry.

She has too because if she did not they will think because she has won the award before but some needs to be done

I don't get the boycott, the Oscars is in recognition of the very best, anyone who wants the recognition should put in the hard yards.

Uncle Arthur said...

The head of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Isaacs)...is black
The producer of the Awards (Hudlin) is black...
The host of the Awards (Rock) is black...
The Academy gave Spike Lee an honorary Oscar Award a couple months back, just because...
Nyong'o herself benefitted from the Oscar largesse not long ago...
Ethnic actors have dominated the actor award categories in the recent past...
The Academy has certainly made definitive steps towards embracing diversity. Equality dictates that everyone is subject to the same rules. Those who are not nominated simply did not garner enough votes. It's not by screaming that genuine accolades ensue.
Insisting on recognition based on race further bolsters the racism we are desperate to eradicate.
Also, Will Smith gets good roles but let's be honest, he's not really a great actor. Just sayin'
