Blind Item #14

My guess is she will win an Oscar for acting this year. The crazy thing is, she looks like she might not even be nominated by this other organization for an award because they have a secret limit on how many people of color can be nominated and they already have reached their limit even though we are just in August.

Viola Davis\GG

Forget that. Who is the organization with a limit on how many people of color can be nominated?

sandybrook said...

Smondry also has a good guess.

Tricia13 said...

She gave an amazing performance in “Widows”

Maybe if she comes out and "identifies" as a white male.... they'll let her play

Well there are 4 more months of movies still to come and unless Enty is sitting with crystal ball alongside his cognac, how exactly is he making this prediction? Is this a bad faith blind?

The Emmy's are in September if it's a television actress.

Cree said...

Nvm, the nominations were already made apparently.

Thonker said...

lol awards have become such jokes. Just trying to satisfy everyone instead of just honoring the best actors and actresses. And annoying people whining about how not enough XX won. Can't hear it anymore...

LondonGirl said...

Is this for TV? Because Amy Adams will win, and rightly so.

Brayson87 said...

Just like how popsicle boxes only have a few cherry ones! It's all oranges and grapes.

Somebody in Crazy Rich Asians?

Kiki Layne or Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk.

Racist org.- Hollywood Foreign Press- Golden Globes

Amy said...

Viola Davis is a brilliant actress. That's all that matters in awards and all that should matter. It's a shame that in a way, trying to make everything so equal that we've made it a lot worse.

amy adams will probably win for best supporting actress for Backseat the cheney film (and Bale will win Best Actor), but Viola easily could pull off Best Actress.

she deserves all the awards, imo.

notthisagain said...

hollywood foreign press is a messed up organization we already know that, but this brings it to a whole new awful

I wish they would be exposed for this

Lindy said...

This sounds like baloney.

Neal M said...

This is crap. If anything people of color are now overly represented in award shows in relation to their actual % of the population and % of eligible nominees. Heck the Grammy's are around 70% black.
Having said that - who freaking cares? If she was the best actress give her the freaking award. I don't care what color she is or how many whites or blacks are nominated.

Neal M said...

Let's just keep the Asians locked out though. /sarcasm

Silkprint said...

I love Lupita

Sd Auntie said...

Me too!!such a natural beauty. The reason why their is a cap is because WP will not watch the dumb show. Asians and Latinos have 1 actor/actress for every damn role. So boring.

Lu Geiger said...

Viola, you deserve all the oscars

Jade, That Girl said...

Definitely Regina King. The Golden Globes has been passing on her for years, when she has won two out of her four Emmy nominations.

@ Brayson...

Right!?! And WTF is up with all those damn yellow Starburst? Ain't nobody got any love for them...

J F said...

Are you saying Danny Trejo isn't a versatile multi-faceted actor? I think he would be great as a lead in a serious film. like, idk... maybe "The Notebook" or "Bridges of Madison County"

Ella Kano said...

Crazy Rich Asian - Michelle Yeoh - but just because someone at some publication suggested she should win an Oscar....???

Unknown said...

The real story is the awards show! expose this pathetic organization

MDAnderson said...

They have a pack with just red and pink ones. I buy them in bulk!!

Mahogany1 said...

I think Phylicia Rashad should have been nominated for Empire she killed it literally. I also think Wolowitz on Big Bang Theory should be nominated as well he's great.

longtimereader said...

Viola davis, Widows has serious buzz surrounding it.

OKC Teacher said...

@Brayson & @J F-Send ALL the Yellow & Orange Starbursts my way!
Love them! (I have a bag on my table with all the leftover Red Starbursts, in need to get rid of).

My BIL who is a RN, says that it’s common for people born in the 60’s & 70’s, to hate the Cherry flavoring. We associate it with the nasty tasting medicine from our childhoods.
