It has been recently revealed in a report that there are some of the obvious winners for the Oscars, who are the front-runners for the race. Best actress nominee Viola Davis is one of the strongest contenders in the race. As for the supporting actress, its Octavia Spencer, who might sweep the Oscar for her performance in ‘The Help’.
It is noteworthy here that these lovely ladies are both black. This might be a very commendable win for the entire community if both these actresses were able to sweep the Oscars this year. It’s been 120 years since a black actress has won the Oscar. As for those people who believe Hollywood is ruled by a particular color, or race, this should be a great eye opener. These two women have wooed the world with their performance in ‘The Help’ and are most likely to take home the Oscar for best actresses.
This would once again help people in understanding that the Oscars are true and unfair and aren’t based on the ethnic and social backgrounds of people, but are a true sign of respect and honor to the work that people do.
"While we must applaud the outstanding performances by Ms. Davis and Ms. Spencer, we cannot ignore the fact that once again African Americans are being recognized in Hollywood for playing limited and/or demeaning roles in Hollywood”, said James Braxton Peterson, from the Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, Penn.
It needs to be understood by one and all that the entire idea of the prestigious award ceremony is to collaborate and bring as one, the cultural and social diversities of the world, and salute to the spirit of entertainment, before anything else.
