Was he not nominated for Malcolm X or 25th Hour though?

Bradley Cooper hasn't (and it might cost him) but yes that's generally true.

Katherine Hepburn wouldn't even show up to the Oscars let alone campaign for them and she has more wins than anyone in history in the acting category (4).. Never once gave an acceptance speech. She was a G.

Surprisingly not. A journalist for Vanity Fair (Mike Hogan) mistakenly thought Spike had been nominated for Do The Right Thing and talked about it in an interview this year and Spike tore him a new butthole for it.

True, but it’s different now too. You’d have guys like Brando refuse to show up for political reasons and still win. That wouldn’t happen today.

Understandably so. I remember seeing (off topic) a reporter ask Dave Mustaine at the grammies what it was like to finally be nominated. He looked so annoyed and just said “actually this is my twelfth nomination”

People don’t do their Damn research

Though I’m guilty too, I thought spike had been nominated in the past.

But I’d at least wiki that **** before I sat down with him

Also, fatherlessness is the reason why young males of ANY race would "cherish" gangsta rap. Even then, they have the excuse of youth. Playing the race card as an adult to get an award from people you think are inherently racist, while embracing forced "diversity" (aka affirmative action/anything but white ideology) is just hypocritical. Nice deflection tho.

Some do. Look around the lounge.

Again, look around the lounge. Are you really trying to play the "some blacks demonize old white men" but the "which whites demonize young black men" role at the same time? Hmmm. Sounds a bit off, doesn't it?

Which whites demonize young black men? Are you serious?


Walk in my skin and try to get a taxi in New York. Then talk to me about how only white supremacists demonize young black men. That's only one example. There's plenty more.

Righttt. I guess it must be the same for gangster movies, huh? I mean, why else would anyone like movies about gangsters, right?

Playing the race card? Maybe you'll understand one day if you live to see the day when Whites are no longer the majority.
