if you think a movie about a black man coming to terms with his sexuality and actually finding love and happiness without having to change who he is doesn’t deserve best picture but another musical about white people falling in love while rediscovering music that had already been established and popularized by black people did, you can unfollow me right now.

Ok I will tell you moonlight did not deserve best picture. It was Divinely dull, boring and so damn slow paced it was like watching paint dry on a day with no rain. The plot was not interesting,the majority of the actors were not anything special with the exception of the wonderfully talented Marshalala Allie and Naomi Harris. The script and storyline was non existent and, with all that combined Moonlight did not deserve best picture.

Moonlight not only presented a black film that spoke about an important topic(LGBTQ in the black community amongst black men) but presented it in so much symbolism with its beautiful usage of color, the characters and their individual roles that is actual real life, and great usage of angles just all adds up to the great cinematography. The film sent out a great message: That we all want to be loved and accepted for who we truly are and at the same time, shed light on masculinity for black gay men. You may say my opinion is completely biased because I am a person of color who will always be over joyed for another person of color’s accomplishment but heyyy you wanted to hear it otherwise you wouldn’t be in my inbox ;)! The storyline was definitely there for me and I guess for a majority of others who agree because MOONLIGHT WON BEST PICTURE ANYWAYS!!! Moonlight>La la land
