Before i go to bed, i would like to point out that it was a producer of la la land who told moonlight they they won. The producer was up there giving his acceptance speech and then found out that there was a mistake. Instead of being pissy about it or letting jimmy tell moonlight he told them and give them the oscar. Jimmy asked why they couldnt all get oscars and the producer, who i will add the name of tomorrow when im more awake, told him that moonlight deserved it and he was happy to give the oscar to them. All of la la lands people quickly left the stage so moonlight could have their time in the spotlight. No matter what your feelings on la la land please dont insult them for this. It was not their fault and they handled it so well and gave moonlight the respect they deserved.
Green Book, a film about normalizing racism, made by a white director (who has admitted to harrassing women) who soley wanted to thank his white male lead, won against literally every minority film: a film made by and for African Americans, a flim made by and for Hispanics, a film about a gay man, and a film made about queer women… A FILM MADE BY A BLACK FILMMAKER ABOUT RACE RELATIONS THAT EXPLAINED RACE BETTER. Those lost for Best Picture against a white man who wanted to say for himself, “Racism bad.” And that is what is wrong with everything.
In Celebration of Black Panther’s Best Picture nomination. As a comicbook fan, be it superheroes, indie or graphic novels in general, living to see a Superhero movie get a nomination for Best Picture for the FIRST TIME ever feels SUPER good :D
