I remember when Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, and Cuba Gooding Jr. won their awards. I was inspired.

I love Angela Bassett. She is an amazing actress. She's had some great movie roles and I feel she is underrated.

Oh, that's right, it's only "racist" when blacks are the ones being excluded based on skin color.
Boo Hoo....lol!

This is her.


Hattie McDaniel
McDaniel was the first African-American to win an Academy Award. She won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role of Mammy in Gone with the Wind (1939).

In addition to acting in many films, McDaniel was a professional singer-songwriter, comedian, stage actress, radio performer, and television star; she was the first black woman to sing on the radio in America.[1][2] During her career, McDaniel appeared in over 300 films, although she received screen credits for only 80 or so.[citation needed] She gained the respect of the African American show business community with her generosity, elegance, great beauty, and charm.[citation needed][opinion]

McDaniel has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood: one at 6933 Hollywood Boulevard for her contributions to radio and one at 1719 Vine Street for acting in motion pictures

The Green Mile Trailer - YouTube

Feb 12, 2007 ... Trailer for The Green Mile. Surprised I couldn't find it here, so I just thought I'd upload it. In my opinion one of the best movies ever made.

Caryn Elaine Johnson, best known as Whoopi Goldberg (pron.:/&#712;hw&#650; pi/,(born November 13, 1955) is an American comedienne, actress, singer-songwriter, political activist, author and talk show host.

Goldberg made her film debut in The Color Purple (1985), playing Celie, a mistreated black woman in the Deep South. She received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress and won her first Golden Globe Award for her role in the film. In 1990, she played Oda Mae Brown, a wacky psychic helping a slain man (Patrick Swayze) save his lover (Demi Moore) in the blockbuster Ghost. This performance won her a second Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress; this made Goldberg only the second black woman in the history of the Academy Awards to win an acting Oscar—the first being Hattie McDaniel who won for Gone With the Wind in 1939.

Notable later films include Sister Act and Sister Act 2, The Player, Made in America, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Girl, Interrupted and Rat Race. She is also acclaimed for her roles as the bartender Guinan in Star Trek: The Next Generation, as Terry Doolittle in Jumpin' Jack Flash, and as Carmen Tibideaux in Glee, as well as the voice of Shenzi the hyena in The Lion King.

Goldberg has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for her work in television. She was co-producer of the popular game show Hollywood Squares from 1998 to 2004. She has been the moderator of the daytime talk show The View since 2007. Goldberg has a Grammy, two Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Tony (for production, not acting), and an Oscar. In addition, Goldberg has a British Academy Film Award, four People's Choice Awards, and has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She is one of the few entertainers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award
