Oscar Nomination Voting Process is Wrong


The fans that go to the movies and buys the DVDs should have a vote in whom they want as
Nominees. It is simple the fans. There should be an online voting ballot with a signature of the voter
and phone number and email address for verification of an honest and true ballot.

 

I cannot believe that Tyler Perry has not won an Oscar for his movies as an actor—he has played three different characters in some of his movies that he has written, produced, directed. He is an author, screenwriter, playwright, songwriter and one of the most brilliant people in America.

 
Mr. Perry is a multi-talented man who has been overlooked far too long. And, if the Oscars are no different this year—2017 than last year---many other races besides the black race will not be watching. It will have become an antiquated frown upon event using valuable expensive airtime while gratifying to a certain group.

 
Black, Hispanic, Asian, Middle East and Native American actors; men and women who act their hearts out in movies are overlooked. Some produce, direct, write as well as act are never nominated. This is not a sour grapes opinion because I am a white American fan of movies and I know which actors deserve attention to their art and who gets it because they are popular with certain groups; and not because they merit the honor.

 
Some White actors are overlooked as well—many of my favorites. And, what would help everyone is to get involved in good movies. Watch movies like Hallmark Movies, Australia, Far and Away, Legends of the fall, and love stories in movies like Ghost.

 
I am sorry I am not into Zombie or Vampires, but I am sure my nieces and nephews might like this type of movie. What is needed is a movie that will touch the heart of all ages; and, I am sure there are writers out there who can write a movie using actors from different races.

 
An award should be voted for on past movies that were popular with fans, but overlooked by the academy. Choose the movies that have a variety of actors from different races. No! This is not impossible—it can be done by brilliant people like Tyler Perry, Samuel B. Jackson, Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Angela Bassett, Keen Ivory Wayans, Don Cheadle, Will Smith, and Danny Glover. These are just a few I know and I am sure there are more brilliant people I cannot remember at the moment.

Overlooked are children actors in movies—no matter the race—children should not be unnoticed. The animals used in movies as actors. The behind the \scenes workers that do an outstanding job should receive an award for background performance. It takes more than a village to produce a movie and the ones who help the actors look good are valuable too.

The Academy needs a face-lift with a new nomination method. Remember members of the Academy—Words are cheap—it takes action to correct this oversight. © BEPH 2017 All Rights Reserved
