Maybe the black actors weren't as good as the white actors. That's something to think about. If you are a black actor and complain that only the whites get nominated. Move to Africa and you'll probably get nominated for something. Or maybe you'll cry and yell racist or something because you aren't as good of an actor.

So this is interesting. Certainly some blacks should have been nominated. There was some racism in the academy's decision. But most of the blame falls on the racism of Hollywood

That is what I always think about. Lmfao. Somehow that's fair because they are black and need that cultural protection

There is an interesting article in the Economist about race and the Oscars which goes through some basic statistical analysis of nominations and wins. If finds that there are problems with all minorities being underrepresented, not just black people.

It doesn't talk about specific movies that were passed over, but this year there were several such as Creed, Beasts of no Nation and Concussion that should have at least been considered.

When you need to show somebody something is racist, it's best not to say something about race being the determining factor in acting. Name a terrible actor who won, and maybe race could be argued. Name an amazing actor that lost and the odds are larger. Generalizing bullshit shuts people's ears and doesn't help. Recent movies suck, its all about money and hype. The Martian was a good book, but the movie, didn't it get designated something it wasn't worth, or win something it shouldn't?

name a black actor that should have gotten an award. also name the award and the actor who got it.

Maybe the black actors weren't as good as the white actors. It's based on performance, not the color of your skin.

actually Reece what I meant was the reasons that no black people have won an award isn't because of race it's juts because they haven't won simple! thats what I meant by a coincidence! there are plenty of great black actors and actresses out there but there are more white ones! that's not racist that's just the way it is!

may I suggest Reece you stop taking peoples argument so personally. you tend to anger very quick and instead of debating just yell your opinion :) just a suggestion....

This was a sad year for movies in general. Nothing thrilling, maybe star wars but at this point claiming coattails and copy paste would be fair. Of course the movie selection wasn't fair, have you seen polls in regards to other things? People's votes don't matter in general, the people with money determine who ends up on Time magazine and so on. However, corruption doesn't always mean racism. Can people suggest who or what deserved rewards instead, and go from there?

You call not winning at least ONE award at a majority Caucasian based event a 'coincidence' ? ..lol wow ..you have a lot to learn in life if you really BELIEVE that that was a coincidence lol

Blacks are so used to being cut out of everything so the moment they see that they are not involved in things like The Oscar's the automatically think it's racism because of the way society has treated white people from blacks. So why wouldn't they think they are being racially discriminated. Sometimes when it comes to the colour of skin in matters because of the preception society has put forth and generations of being discriminated against.

I agree, there are plenty of great black actors out there but its nothing to do with race why they haven't won, just coincidence!!
