Playing submissive, demeaning stereotypical roles anyway. So why care? I think Jamie Foxx and Sidney Poitier are the only ones who have won a competitive oscar without playing a demeaning , submissive stereotypical role. I don't know why blacks admire things that don't admire them.
Was Denzel Washingtons role in Glory demeaning? Seriously, I haven't seen it in years. It's obnoxious the way people are acting about it. If terrible actors or movies were getting nominated instead of good ones done by black people, ok it would make sense. But best actor and supporting actor categories are spot on. Those people gave excellent performances. White people don't boycott the oscars every year Leo gets snubbed, and he's deserved one since he met Scorsese. Wasn't 12 years a slave nominated last year? People always have to bitch about something I guess
I disagree. I don't think Denzel Washington's Oscars were demeaning stereotypical roles. Though yeah, in Training Day his role wasn't the good guy, he still did a freaking amazing job and it wasn't submissive, demeaning and stereotypical.
