In today's economy, who cares to watch a bunch of millionaires flaunt their money and success? In my opinion, it's a slap in the rest of the countries face. If they wanted to show something good. Use the millions of wasted dollars in their childish party and use it for something good. Like FEED people.

The Oscars died for me when the Academy gave, not awarded, but GAVE an Oscar to Halle Berry not for acting but for being the right color that year. Since that fiasco, EVERY OTHER YEAR has not failed to give us not one, but ALWAYS TWO black "winners." There is obviously an agenda at work, and it is not awarding talent and excellence. Two black awards every other year just isn't statistically possible.

It isn't hard to see which of the two blacks is that years token, either. Berry, Jaime Foxx, and that fat bitch from Dreamgirls are obviously the "extra" black when you compare them to Denzel Washington and the long overdue Morgan Freeman. I don't agree with Forrest Whitaker's "win," either, now that I think of it.

It's the Academy trying to show that they aren't "racist," but box office receipts show that this still majority-white country likes their African exposure in small doses, or, I'd imagine, not at all.
