Hmmmm … should we all be saying “F- the Oscars”?
While many people are still upset by Selma star David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay’s Oscars snub, actors Chris Spencer and Anthony Anderson are taking a different approach.
While at the NAACP Image Awards luncheon, Spencer revealed his feelings towards the Academy, “F- the Oscars”, he told HipHollywood, “I don’t understand why we care so much about this trophy,” the Real Husbands of Hollywood creator continued. Anderson seemed to echo those sentiments when he stated, “We don’t need awards and awards shows to validate who we are.”
On the other hand, Selma star Niecy Nash felt a bit differently about the snub, especially since she saw firsthand the amazing accomplishments of both Ava and David. “Selma is an American story and I think Ava did a beautiful job. I think David Oyelowo’s performance was transformative and I definitely think there should have been a place for them at the table.”
The Oscars may have missed the mark, but Selma, Ava Duvernay and David Oyelowo were all nominated for NAACP Image Awards. You can read the full list of nominees here and watch the NAACP Image Awards when they air live Friday, February 6th on TV One.
