The wisdom of the twitter points to two beautiful black women trotting out with Oscar in tow.

I am pulling for them even if Melissa Perry Harris blasted them or whatever.  Where are her Hollywood creds? Stick to politicking Melissa. I didn’t think you were into reviewing films.  Just because the movie has black women in it does not make you an expert on the film industry hello…

Anyway the movie was great and the acting as I pointed out in my review of the movie that they would be on the Oscar short list.  Now take that black women who did not like the movie.

I blogged The Help and I think I predicted it would be a part of the Oscars and it is.  It might be this years “Precious” who knew?  Black women did not like this film because again it pictures black women in subsurvient roles to the almight white woman.  What else is news?

I saw at least four of these films but not all.
