so the entire bland broadcast of the oscars 2015 was a big apology for the selma snub (or another way to get through without actually having to give “those people” an award) including the head of the academy’s endless virtually pointless speech – they got her out there so it could add to the count.
and in that way – very much like the bloated racially ambivalent snl40 broadcast – if you were african american – which i am not – i think these two shows pretty much sum up the cultural attitudes (at least the mainstream ones) toward race. if you’re hispanic american – you might feel a little better. #oscars2015, #selma #selmamovie #snl40

In an elephantine spectacle with few awards surprises, the Martin Luther King, Jr. movie provided a song and two acceptance speeches for the ages
