    I’ve worked with Fay several times over the years, and she’s as talented as she is gorgeous. This is a terrific break for her.

    If there are minorities and women in it, it has to get an Oscar, because that’s all the Academy cares about these days. If it’s not a white guy, it’s an Oscar! Wait, though, isn’t that racism and isn’t Hollywood past that? Weren’t they the industry that was leading the way in not seeing skin color but only the talent, I guess not, anyway, give them an OSCAR! It’s got minorities and women in it!

    • Fangirl says:

      Gosh, you’re too stupid to be real!

    • Jason says:

      I think your confused the OSCARS don’t care about minorities that’s why there is an uproar.This comment is stupid it is ignorant and prejudice. So they decided to add a black woman to the cast and you go into a state like this? Why? Your a prejudiced hateful person. If Oscars have lowed down so much maybe minorities should not worry so much about that statue it represents hate and racism,and represents people like you. So you should receive an OSCAR!!! For representing what it stands for PERFECTLY.
