Like everyone I’ve watched the Oscars off and on throughout my life, but with recent achievements by African Americans (Denzel, Halle, Jamie, Forest, etc.) I have been watching them more and now EVERY YEAR.I have even composed a page of all of the African American Academy Awards winners at our sister blog Cool Black Media.
I love the Oscars because they reward the previous year’s greatest cinema achievements as determined by some of the world’s most accomplished motion picture artists and professionals. It also helps that because I'm a filmmaker I now know what a Cinematographer is (and does) and have an appreciation for "Best Foreign Film" and the like. I am also well aware of the current disparages over the lack of diversity in the awards and I have a very definite opinion on that which I will write soon.
All of my Oscar blog entries have been posted at my aforementioned blog devoted to African Americans in the media
