THR: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Why Black People Are Invisible to Oscar Voters Antibody Jan 27, 09:42

Besides Jamie Foxx in Colateral can you think of a nominated Black actor that has been nominated for a role that didn't require being Black? {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 10:40

DWASH Flight {nm} Antibody Jan 27, 10:46

and Philadelphia, although it gave his character's homophobia a deeper layer {nm} slipping jimmy Jan 27, 10:48

Denzel wasn't nominated for Philadelphia. {nm} Andre C Jan 27, 11:32

Still don't understand that. {nm} leo21 Jan 27, 15:19

DWASH Training Day {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:36

His character had to be black in South Central. {nm} Antibody Jan 27, 11:55

Disagree. RDUVA didn't have to be black in Colors. {nm} Chest Rockwell Jan 27, 13:16

that was probably a good thing for Robert Duvall then {nm} slipping jimmy Jan 27, 17:46

Thanks, forgot about that one. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:56

VDAVI in Doubt? {nm} Roger More Jan 27, 11:27

Doubt was based on a play. In the production the character is Black. So I respectfully disagree on this one. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 12:04

I can see that (though they could have whitewashed it) {nm} Roger More Jan 27, 13:19

QLATI in Chicago {nm} Andre C Jan 27, 11:31

Debateable with this one. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:56

what's your thinkng behind this? debatable how? {nm} CSBD Jan 27, 12:01

The original production starred Mary McCarty who was a white actress. So after some research, I agree with you. Thank you for your input. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 12:07

all depends on how you view race being a requirement for a role {nm} lapuckfan Jan 27, 11:33

Well like when Nupita was nominated the actor had to be Black. Like when Spike Lee was casting Malcom X, the actor had to be Black. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 12:01

Halle Berry Monster's Ball {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:38

Louis Gossett Jr. Officer and a gentleman ...he should have got another nod for IRON EAGLES {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:40

She had to be black, because her husband was an imprisoned black man and BBTHO's dad was a racist. {nm} Antibody Jan 27, 12:02

Agree. BBTHO's shift on acceptance is a critical part of his character. {nm} Chest Rockwell Jan 27, 13:18

DWASH in Training Day? JFOXX in Collateral? {nm} Chest Rockwell Jan 27, 11:40

Yes thank you. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:59

Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption {nm} RazorHawk Jan 27, 11:40

Morgan Freeman in Million Dollar Baby {nm} RazorHawk Jan 27, 11:42

Jaye Davidson in The Crying Game {nm} RazorHawk Jan 27, 11:43

Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction {nm} RazorHawk Jan 27, 11:43

Wait Mr. Wolf writes down (black) by Jules name lol... {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:59

+1 whatever happned to Jaye? Frog and Scorpion story FTW! {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 12:03

Yeah both of Morgan's characters were written as whites in the books. Red was Irish in Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:56

"OK....well except for those...." {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:41

Samuel "BAMF" Jackson in Pulp Fiction {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:43

Cuba Gooding Jr. as Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire Bleachigo Jan 27, 11:46

No. NFL WRs are 99% Black so I disagree here. A Black actor was required. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 11:57

That's inaccurate and sounds racist...he could have been Australian, Hispanic or even Canadian {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 12:17

aren't you late for a Trump rally somewhere? {nm} slipping jimmy Jan 27, 12:25

lol I'am a Hillary Campaign Volunteer (both times), why so quick to attack when we might actually be on the same side? {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 13:29

You are calling lhayes37 racist? lol lhayes37 = famous ..... RazorHawk Jan 27, 12:32

Listen, I played the game. I know the racial breakdown of football teams. 48 of the top 50 WRs in terms of stats in 2015 were Black...96% lhayes37 Jan 27, 12:56

So why could character NOT be based on one of them? {nm} Bleachigo Jan 27, 13:31

Ok, we'll agree to disagree on this one. {nm} lhayes37 Jan 27, 15:31

Louis Gossett Jr. Officer and a Gentleman. When Gossett was cast they were going to re-write the part for a black actor but... mrbeankc Jan 28, 01:41
