Have you ever felt the Oscars, Emmys, or any other awards show seemed to give awards to the same people? You wanted to run on the stage push a white person outta the way and yell, “Beyonce had the best music video of all time.” Hollywood isn’t exactly fair and it’s definitely a club that doesn’t always give us the respect we deserve. So here are some actors/actresses that Hollywood has overlooked, but we definitely saw them.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, 12 Years a Slave
The performance in this movie was so gripping and chilling at parts you simply had to look away. I know I’m not the only one who watched this film and thanked God I was born after slavery in America had ended. The personal turmoil and struggle faced by Solomon Northrup in this film was unbelievable. That being said, I believed Ejiofor brought everything to this role and I felt every emotion he did.
