#Oscars2017: The Wins, & the ‘Aw-C’mons’

Sunday night was rough enough after #OscarsSoWhite popularized on social media. I remember writing about it, and evening tweeting to Revolt TV about our sentiments.

 

But last night was better than ever with more Black Americans nominated than ever  including Mahershala Ali, who won Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Moonlight, Naomie Harris, Ava DuVernay for Best Documentary (Feature), and so many more.
