There's no logical metric that makes Inside Out undeserving. It's just not a safe, vaguely biographical live action drama starring white people. If it had fallen into that category and put up the sales and reviews that it did, the film would have swept the award circuit. Alas.
White people? ?
I thought the girl and her family were white
Are you fighting the power? with Jada and FP

But voice was provided by Mindy Kaling, I think (voice of disgust). so that has some diversity, right? I know remainder of main cast are white but still.

Diversity is a major problem with the Academy, but Will and Jada (and Chris Rock) are focusing too much on blacks getting screwed over and not enough on ALL minority races getting screwed over.

Yup. "I believe I can be of service"


One of the greatest movie cameos. They could have used mans grasp exceeds his reach from the Prestige. I think the Zoolander clip captured him as recognizable. Very brief.

The whole show was a patronizing farce.

And Fight the Power to close, like holy supreme fuckin irony.

I guess 99% of people alive in 1990 now have the attention span/memory of a rodent.

I laughed too hard at this. If those old Academy motherfuckers had patted themselves on the back any harder with that song choice, they would have wound up in traction.

I'm not sure how you can read last night's ceremony as anything other than an apology. That's clearly what it was.

Also, the sorority racism bit by Chris Rock was absolutely brilliant.

Personally, I thought the most salient point made by Chris Rock last night was that the lack of diversity is as much a matter of opportunity as it is racial bias amongst the voters. It's an institutional problem. The blue chip roles aren't there unless you're lucky enough to land a spot in a high budget, racially-charged biography.

This.

And, to add to your quote without editing "..or possibly, as a slave or other stereotypical role usually reserved for non-whites."

Having said that, there are opportunities. Hollywood just seems to figure out a way to fuck with them

Finally Leo, even if his better roles got passed over in the past and his preaching aside.

If only more prominent people would "preach" so passionately about how our environment is going down the toilet.

There isn't a more important issue.
