Sojourner's Place

and the oscar for best supporting actress goes to...  

Posted by SjP in ,

The 81st Annual Academy Awards will be held this Sunday. Who will win the Oscar? Who will loose or who will be robbed? This year, there are two African-American thespians among the nominees. In the Supporting Actress category, Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson, are among a field of five vying to take home the coveted award.

I've not seen either movie for which they've been nominated, but judging from the trailers both seem like they are worth the money to go and see. I have no doubt that both are very worthy of the nomination - and hopefully one of them will win.

Here's a little African-American Oscar trivia for you. There have been 11 African-American actors to win an Academy Award. Can you name them? Be the first to name all 11 - and you'll be the winner of something very special.

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

Can I add that Prince, Stevie Wonder, Isaac Hayes, and Lionel Richie have all won Oscars for their musical brilliance?

I think there are others, but I don't remember them all...I think Irene Cara is in there for Fame...

Hey Sojourner!

I actually saw both movies and they were both great. Although Viola's role wasn't quite as long as Taraji's, I'd say she edges Taraji out, but that's just my opinion.

@ Keith, that's what I've heard. Wish one of them would have won. But, I guess being nominated is the "honor".
