  Resolved Question: Without looking at
in the 73 years prior to the 2002 best Actor and Actress wins for Denzel and Halle--students of contemporary cinema I bet you can only come up with 6--who is the 7th, and what did he/she win for (and don't cheat!)? Is Whoopi correct in accusing the reporters of sloppy journalism or is she crying sour grapes? Thanks for your response! My question was for the seventh actor from the list of black winners who won in the acting category prior to the 2001 wins for Denzel and Halle who both won Best Actor trophys (I knew that 6 of the 7 would be easy for most people)--you were correct in your list--for the most part--only Denzel, Portier, Fox and Whitaker have won in the Best Actor category--the others are supporting, the only black actress to win a Best Actress Oscar is Halle--the others are supporting awards. The 7th actor that I was looking for is James Baskett, who won a special Oscar in 1948 for Song of the South ("Zip a dee doo-dah,zip a dee ay"). What I take from your comment is what the NYT article railed against http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/13/movies/awardsseason/13movies.html --the shameful implication that the work of black actors is not on the same level as white actors. The fact is that many great performances have been ignored or simply given a courtesy nomination (i.e. Ang (i.e. Angela Bassett in X, Diana Ross in Lady Sings the Blues, Oprah in Color Purple), when they should have won in their category. It's telling that in the entire 83 year history of the Academy Awards, only 13 awards have been given to black actors--2 of those to Denzel. There is no other explanation for the exclusion of African Americans or the stereotypical racist inside joke awards (i.e. Mammy & Uncle Remus) than American racism, plain and simple. And you can not tell me that there were no nomination worthy performances this year--For Colored Girls had three amazingly nuanced performances submitted by Loretta Devine, Macy Gray and Michael Ealy--but again, Hollywood doesn't traditionally recognize such actors or their work--yet Dame Judi Dench wins for a 8 minute performance in Shakespeare in Love (1998), and Beatrice Straight for her 5 mintues in Network (1976)--not to diminish their work--but I wonder what the Academy's justification is for ignoring Macy Gray's 14 minutes of out -standing and powerful work. . . .

  Resolved Question: Are we now into black
known but great James Baskett, Hattie McDaniel starring in the great old disney movie "Song of the South" Not only is it a warm hearted movie, but it also shows how the slaves of the old south before the civil war were not all mistreated. It has no sex or violence and lets the younger generation in on some of truth as to how our customs and our culture was. Yes, but why should we be subject to people of imagined sensitivities, They do not like the way they were in that period, and do not realize how they had to struggle to gain respect, with a poor education system they did very well with life in general and overcame adversity. James Baskett was not allowed in to watch the primier in Atlanta,but did not complain, knowing how fruitless it would be against the 'good ole boys' that ran the government.
