Once again, #OscarsSoWhite. Here is a list of actors whose Oscar-caliber performances were overlooked: Michael B. Jordan, Samuel L. Jackson, Idris Elba, and Will Smith. Among directors: F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and Ryan Coogler (Creed). Stallone’s Supporting Actor nomination for Creed, as he himself would acknowledge, is primarily thanks to the masterful writing and direction of Coogler, and also to the chemistry between himself and the charismatic Jordan. So once again top-rank filmmakers and actors who are black are treated like the help. As with last year, I will find something else to do that night.
