Re: Oscar nominations vs. Mine/Yours

Then shouldn't Moonlight be able to win Best Picture if it is the best picture, regardless of the race of the characters and filmmakers? What you said earlier is basically that because they are black, it shouldn't be able to win because it either is reverse discrimination or at least [/i]could be[/...

Re: Arrival (2016)
