Jamie Foxx Tells Peers to #ActBetter While Oscars Adds “Diversity”

Published

We aren’t sure if Jamie Foxx is legitimately poking fun at the Oscars and the boycott, or if he is on board because while he was on stage at the American Black Film Festival in Beverly Hills this past weekend, he was making jokes about how he doesn’t understand “what’s the big deal” behind boycotting the Oscars.

“All these Oscar talks, I don’t even trip about that. I mean, what’s the big deal? I was sitting at home with my Oscar, like ‘What’s all the hubbub?’” Foxx said. “My friend said, ‘Are you mad?’ ‘Um, kind of, but not really,’” he continued. “I started calling Denzel [Washington], and we just Instagrammed our Oscars together.”

When he was ending his time on stage, he had the audience laughing by calling out his fellow black actors, telling them to act better.

He also explained why he didn’t feel so passionate about the lack of diversity at the Oscars by saying:

“I was with Sidney Poitier just a couple weeks ago, and in 1963 all he asked for was an opportunity to act,” Foxx said. “ That’s all we have to do, opportunity. If you turn the camera on and say ‘OK … win an award … and action,’ we’ll all have taken, like, 10 steps back. It’s all about the art. Who cares about anything else?’”

With that being said, it seems the Oscars are trying to appease the black community by adding two black hosts to the opening ceremony, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan, who will be joining Jess Cagle and Joe Zee. During the pre-show, hosts will be interviewing nominees, presenters, and performers as they walk the red carpet. Also, the pre-show will give viewers an inside look of all the “excitement” that happens before the main event.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so over the Oscars, the drama, and everything that goes with it. It just needs to be over. Pronto.

Will you be watching?

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive
    content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
