Happy Friday, my friends.
Sunday is The Oscars. Every year since 1980,
I have been watching The Academy Awards.
In honor of the Oscars, here is
an updated picture I did of The Golden Ladies
as I call them. The Ten African American
women who have nominated for an Academy
Award for Best Actress. Only Halle
of the Ten have won so far.
Here are the Ten Golden Ladies:
Dorothy Dandridge (1954) in Carmen Jones
Cicely Tyson and Diana Ross (1972) in Sounder and Lady Sing The Blues
Diahann Carroll (1974) in Claudine
Whoopi Goldberg (1985) in The Color Purple
Angela Bassett (1993) in What's Love Got To Do With It.
Halle Berry (2001) in Monster's Ball * Won Oscar Gold
Gabourey Sidibe (2009) in Precious
Viola Davis (2011) in The Help
Quvenzhané Wallis (2012) in Beasts of The Southern Wild.
Quvenzhané being the youngest Best Actress
Enjoy Oscar Sunday, everyone.
