The Andrea Riseborough thing is a lot more layered than most people want to admit (between what it means for black folks, indie films, and the awards construct). But this quote from Christina Ricci is like… welcome to being a person of color in Hollywood
The Academy has issued a statement saying they “are conducting a review of the campaign procedures around this year’s [Oscar] nominees, to ensure that no guidelines were violated, and to inform us whether changes to the guidelines may be needed in a new era of social media.”
#AndreaRiseborough doesn't need an Oscar, she's WAY better than the other actors nominated. If you still don't know who she is, it's probably because she never does the same role twice. I remember discovering her 10 years ago in Shadow Lover. My favorite actress ever since.
Andrea Riseborough’s performance is amazing, she earned that. My only thing is now that we know that actors can rally like this last minute for a campaign, I’m gonna need Winslet, Aniston, Theron and Paulson to show up like this for WOC in the future. We’re gonna remember this.
