    Rev. Al Sharpton calls emergency meeting, plans action protesting Oscar nominations

    Activist Rev. Al Sharpton has called an emergency meeting and plans “possible action” to protest the lack of diversity in this year’s Academy Awards nominations, according to a statement he posted online.

    While he saluted the best-picture nomination “Selma” received, he fumed at the lack of diversity in other categories.

    “The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets,” his statement read. “I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.”

      Denzel Washington would disagree.

        To call him a mental midget would be an insult to mental midgets.
        It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

          They'll probably cave and add a best black actor award for next year.
          Then the best gay.
          Transgendered.
          Fat.

                  To someone who is younger than me or way out of the NY area look up Tawana Brawley and read about what disgusting Al is all about. Here is a jack*** that they say owes millions in back taxes and yet he's free to rome around and visit the White House how many times?
                  We are at the point where government will do what it wants because the power of the vote isn't working anymore. Hmmm depressing.

                      again...pussification of our country. Its no longer about achievement or earned sucess, its about skin color, no matter what the circumstances or, more importantly, FACTS are. MLK has to be rolling!

                      If the "reverend" owes so much in taxes, how the hell can he afford to travel about this country purporting his race bating huckster activities??? Why do people give this felon any relevant attention???

                      so sad what weve become

                        Story time!!!

                        I took a "Race and Racism" class during my senior year in college. I was one of 2 white people in the class. Very eye opening class. I recommend it to every white person.

                        Anywho, Denzel Washington was brought up and the fact that he didn't win a Best Actor Oscar until the movie Training Day - where he played a corrupt cop. Some people in the class thought it was because he is black. I (bravely) interjected myself into the discussion and mentioned that Denzel has almost always played a good guy - and that it wasn't until Training Day that he stepped out of his usual good guy role and played someone completely different and evil - the complete opposite of pretty much every character he has ever played. Wasn't that the reason for the awards? To showcase outstanding acting?

                        You could hear a pin drop in the class it was so silent. My classmates NEVER even considered that.

                        Needless to say - we all learned a lot from each other in that class.

                        Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

                            They claim its the first time in years that no black actors are nominated, like 1st in 10 years or something like that,its rare but it gives this idiot more press.

                            Id like to nominate Rev Al Sharpton for a Oscar myself because hes got the role down pat of playing someone who gives a rats *** about everyone else when the cameras are turned on.

                              I remember when he did when, the reporters were trying to ask him all these questions about being the first black actor blah blah blah. Denzel, being the classy guy he is, just kept deflecting the questions.
                              I yell "PIKACHU" before I tase someone.
