Note to Black People
The Academy Awards gave Tom Hanks the award for Best Actor two years in a row but never gave it to Peter O'Toole. The Oscars completely snubbed Citizen Kane. Hitchcock never won the Oscar for Best Director. And Kenneth Branagh's non-adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet was nominated for best-adapted screenplay. The Oscars are really silly. To get upset that the Oscars have not validated you is even sillier.
