  • Are they supposed to? Is there a race quota for the Oscars? And how do you know who is winning?

  • This year the nominations were all pretty bad. Some of the better movies we saw didnt make the cut while movies like True grit were nominated over Inception. Come on.
    I am sure there are some minorities on the list. Were all American anyway and most of us are not pure anything anymore. We are all Heinz 57 lol/

  • Why are you categorizing by color or race? People were nominated.

  • Were any black people in any outstanding movies this year?

  • I guess none were in any movies that were considered Oscar worthy.

  • It must be because there are just racist white people in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that make sure they don't get nominated. Seriously?
