Yeah the film was very good but he was not. Meanwhile Hawke, joaquin, and Lakeith Stanfield got super duper snubbed.
Pretty trash year for the Globes.
you've been banned for this post as enjoying any film other than Marvel films is too adult for tumblr.XxXApathy420XxX wrote: ↑December 7th, 2018, 1:35 amNot gonna lie, seeing tumblr posts about it is cringy. Calling haters for it racist and complaining that it took this long for a Marvel film to be nominated.

When I saw Venom more than half the audience were middle-aged dudes like me - and it was on a day with no school.
Don't be thick. Black Panther was nominated purely to earn points and prevent backlash, which is gross as fuck (and belittling, even worse). It certainly wasn't nominated for merit -- otherwise we'd be seeing every copycat Marvel film that is little different from BP get noms year after year.outdoorcats wrote: ↑December 7th, 2018, 11:03 pmBlack Panther and Bohemian Rhapsody both get nominated for Best Drama, and you single out Black Panther, a film nearly everybody likes, as the embarrassment? More of an embarrassment than nominating The Tourist (after the film's producers flew the HFPA around on paid trips around the world beforehand), Burlesque, Spy, Red and Tim Burton's horrific Alice in Wonderland?
This isn't even the first superhero film to get nominated for Best Picture at the Globes, that was Deadpool.
it's not like Black Panther is the sole 'black film' there. Blackkklansman and If Beale Street Could Talk both also had strong showings with multiple nominationssebby wrote: ↑Yesterday, 12:06 amIf they actually cared about recognizing black film they would nom a great black film instead of the one twitter idiots jizzed themselves over and made a fuss about. Sorry to Bother You is that film, but I doubt the idiots in charge have even heard of it, much less seen it. That's the best film of 2018. No noms.
More egregious, Atlanta got almost no recognition either. I mean it's silly stuff to care about, but the same problems that have always existed with regard to minority created cinema and tv still exist.
80% fresh. Well let me tell you that this movie was not smart, not sharp, it was terrible, it was a mountain of hubris. Even when a movie that comes along that is that bad it stil gets fresh writeups if all/predominantly all the creatives were black. The US still has open wounds with race, and they don't look like healing any time soon.Chi-Raq is as urgently topical and satisfyingly ambitious as it is wildly uneven -- and it contains some of Spike Lee's smartest, sharpest, and all-around entertaining late-period work.
You were probably begging for a tired cliche when you started your post off with "Don't be thick". If you hadn't written that you might still have been having a constructive dialogue.
I definitely need to watch the film now, but the idea that one of these superhero movies has a good role model would make it the first I've ever watched where that was the case. From my little knowledge Wakanda has a king so it's not republican from the get go. Also with the rest of the world, Africa is starting to make really good mainstream movies, they don't need imports from the cultural hegemon.

Fully agreed, but the way Hart handled this situation was stupid. He's sincerely apologized now, which is nice, but his initial response was essentially "I'm not saying sorry, I've said my piece in the past" - that piece being far more of a "jeez, I wouldn't have said this if I knew people were so sensitive" type of "apology" rather than, you know, an actual one. Hart proudly shows the world he was at the very least highly reluctant to give a straight up "I'm sorry" for such lame, edgy attempts at being funny.
It's so different from anything he's ever done, you can tell straight away he didn't write the script, it's too..."normal". I don't think it's his best film but certainly the most accessible and outright funniest, it's not hard to see why it would appeal to even his usual haters.XxXApathy420XxX wrote: ↑Yesterday, 2:22 pmIt's made by a great director though. Looking forward to seeing it.
