Call me crazy, but all this racist and prejudice comments from both sides are really counterproductive. Manchester by the Sea I saw was called the ‘sad generic white man’ movie. It realistically portrays grief and loss in a great character study. Moonlight was narrowed down to the 'gay black movie’. It’s an important movie full of empathy and brutal realism about identity. La La Land I saw was referred to as 'straight white fantasy’. It’s a joyous movie about passion and following your dreams whatever they may be in a throwback to classic musicals.
I suspect many haven’t even seen all of the nominated movies so I suggest you watch before you judge. And most these irrationally angry posts feels like fighting ignorance with more ignorance.
