Did anybody see this movie? I know it's based on a book and it deals with a very controversial subject but many people have referred to it as racist trash or that it sets back Black women or something along the lines of that....These are people haven't seen the movie but saw previews and clips.

And of course, it would be a top contender up for an award.


I saw the movie and really enjoyed it. There are serious moments and light comical moments. It doesn't set the race back to me. It simply shows the crap our race went through to put food on the table for our families. None of it was untrue.

Some black folks don't like looking back, for whatever reason. I don't mind, because it reminds me of how far we have come, and to remember and strive to go even farther.




We all need to stop paying attention to the Golden Globe Awards. They are a joke. They're presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a.k.a. a bunch of European gossip columnists -- not even film critics. Over the past several years, the Globes have been shown to be neither influential on Academy members nor predictive of the Oscars. And yet, the mainstream media continues to lazily perpetuate the baseless story that the Globes are a "harbinger" of the Oscars. The HFPA does not care about giving awards to worthy films or performances. They only want the stars to show up at their awards show, so they can draw a huge TV audience.

Having said that, there is a very good chance that, a couple of months from now, Viola Davis will win the Academy Award for Best Actress for THE HELP.
