LMAO!

Muh lack of women directors...

Muh lack of minority is acting categories...

 

This is the first time in a long time I can actually say I've seen more than one best pic nominee(The Irishman, OUATIH, Joker).

‘Joker’ Tops Oscar Nominations, But Female Directors, Actors of Color Virtually Ignored

Joker,” an R-rated blockbuster, topped the list of Oscar nominations on Monday, becoming the rare comic book film to resonate with awards voters. The best picture contender earned a leading 11 nominations, but the story of the morning will be the lack of diversity among the leading nominees and the exclusion of female filmmakers.

Joker” will vie for top honors at the 92nd Academy Awards with “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “The Irishman,” and “1917,” all of which earned 10 nominations. There are nine best picture contenders in total — a group that also includes “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” and “Parasite.”

In the major categories, it was a list of mostly white nominees, one that will likely inspire outrage, frustration, and pushback. Only one person of color, Cynthia Erivo for “Harriet,” was nominated in the acting categories. Female directors such as Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Kasi Lemmons (“Harriet”), and Lulu Wang (“The Farewell”) were also overlooked. Only five women have ever been nominated for director, and only one, Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”) has ever won the prize. Issa Rae, who had been enlisted to read off the nominees, made a biting nod to their exclusion after the directing contenders were unveiled. “Congratulations to those men,” she said. Perhaps anticipating the storm to come, press notes shared by the Oscars took pains to note that “a record 62 women were nominated, [representing] almost one third of this year’s nominees.”

were there any good ones that were ignored? who deserved to be nominate and was not due to their gender or skin color?

if someone was snubbed who deserved to be up there then I see the complaint. if the complaint is only no women/black people but no good candidates then it is worthless

They want equal outcomes regardless of proportion of population, movie contribution or quality of product... Sound familiar?

This is nothing new, same story every year. The really annoying thing is when they do it to the Nobel prize, something that actually matters. Yelling about how not enough physicists of a certain demographic or other are not nominated. They never say what work people were over looked for though. If there is a break through that should be nominated talk about that, not about the demographic category of the nominee.

Seriously though, fuck the oscars.

Determining the best liar of the year is a faggy practice in and of itself.

i was surprised the last black man in SF didn't get nominated for anything.  it was a really unique film.

also, there was a noticable lack of women and people of color in this years nominees especially compared to last year but compared to almost any year in the last 20.  maybe it just wasn't the year for minorities.

Do women and minorities really want to win this way? 
 

“we need a black woman to win to keep things diverse so........ let’s just pick a black woman at random.... YOU! You win and we’re not bigots!!!!”

These are the same people that will say "Art is subjective" when some batshit crazy cat spinster makes a collage of used tampons, but then argue here for some perpetually undefined objectivism when films they champion for virtue by proxy reasons, doesn't get nods.

Who are the triggered snow flakes? The ones writting articles crying about the lack of non whites being nominated, or the ones laughing at the authors of those articles?

A South Korean film made legitimate history with its slew of nominations, but a bunch of purple-haired retards are upset that "Harriot" didn't get a best picture nom.

 

This is how liberal racism works.....Rather than celebrating the success of Parasite which has been killing it since Cannes, these faggots disregard the accomplishments of an Asian director and an Asian cast because they are triggered by the lack of token "URM" nominations.


The irony of this is that when it comes to Hollywood, black and Latino actors are overrepresented (vs how many there are in the country) while Asians have been virtually invisible for decades.

 

But nah, we can't celebrate a huge accomplishment by an incredible director. We have to whine about not enough black trans womyn being nominated.

Why do that when they can just force organizations to lower the bar?

Are sports the only thing left that are actually merit-based? When will they go after that (only the white-dominated sports obviously)?

Commercials are DOMINATED by POC’s these days, especially blacks. The ‘white guy’ in any commercial will inevitably be a dimwitted cuck too.
