Lupita Oscar Snubb has social media in a frenzy

Fans of  lupita fans are devastated that the actress’ performance in Jordan Peele’s Us was not recognized in the 2020 Oscar nominations. Nyong’o, who played both Adelaide Wilson and her doppelganger Red in the critically-acclaimed horror film, was hoped to have snagged a nomination for Best Actress for her dual performances, but was shut out in the category, it was revealed Monday morning.

Nominated for Best Actress instead were Renée Zellweger in Judy, Charlize Theron in Bombshell, Scarlett Johansson in Marriage Story, Saoirse Ronan in Little Women and Cynthia Erivo in Harriet.

Its seems that black woman and men in Hollywood only receive recognition for their work, when they portray stereotypical roles, like slaves, criminals, gang banging thugs. Thats the only light, they want us to be rewarded under. For example, Denzel didn’t receive an Oscar for Hurricane, but when he played a dirty cop, now that’s more like it. Of course he was rewarded for his role in “ American Gangster.” Halle Berry finally received an Oscar, but only after she had to play a demeaning role in Monsters Ball.
One would think there would be more diversity in 2020, but it seems that the top dogs in Hollywood, are giving us more of the same. When will we stop looking for accolades from Hollywood to tell us we are great? The people who are voting, are not the voice of the people. It must come a time where we start celebrating ourselves and others with fairness and diversity.

Well the internet is not holding back their feelings. Check out these furious fan tweets..
