Jamie Foxx Clowns Will Smith Oscar Snub


Last month Jada Pinkett Smith launched a 2016 Academy Awards boycott after her husband Will Smith was shut out of the nominations for Best Actor [click here if you missed that].

Oscar winner Jamie Foxx has a little advice for Will and Jada...

At the American Black Film Festival on Sunday Jamie Foxx told the crowd,
“All these Oscar talks, I don’t even trip about that.”
“I mean, what’s the big deal? I was sitting at home with my Oscar, like ‘What’s all the hubbub?’”
“Me and Denzel were like, ‘Hashtag "what’s the big deal?" Hashtag "act better."”
#Boom

I saw the ABFF awards and literally cracked up at Jamie! Will did horrible in he movie, let's be real, I'm not even going to talk about that shit of accent he used in the film smfh...
The only one snubbed was Idris Elba...point, blank, PERIOD!
The Smith's are way too full of themselves, now they have Hollywood's top actors laughing at them #ahha

LOL at hashtag "act better." He makes a good point.

Stupid comment. Look at all the truly great actors who haven't gotten the stupid trophy bc they refused to play hollyweird politricks. And don't mention Denzel a REAL actor who should have won for better roles. STFU & STFD.

Yeah Jamie did a great job of imitating Ray Charles...which he was rewarded for...kinda like when he played Wanda on in Living Color Jamie...you are no Denzel...even Denzel was not given an Oscar for his best work, Malcolm X. You got lucky, Dude. No need to gloat....

Be a man Will. Oh wait....never mind.

10:04 is correct; Will didn't do a good job in that role, and instead of compromising himself with roles in "Bagger Vance" he should have sured up legacy with "Independence Day II."

You can either be an actor's actor like Idris (who still got snubbed) or a box office draw. Right now, Will is neither of those things and is resting on his laurels.

Allegedly, back when they were both coming up and Will had a little more shine, Will was not friendly to other actors of color (due to Benny Medina's influence.) And now you want people to rally around you? Notice how silent many actors of color have been and if they were in the right, I don't think the threat of blackballing would have been able to silence people.

Will just get some acting skills

@10:50 Wow! I was hoping he wasn't that shallow but I can see it. He was really full of himself in his fresh Prince days. Treated some black actors like pure shit.

Truth be told...Will Smith is an excellent actor. It's just that he got some not so great movies in the last 4 or so years... He should have done Independence Day 2.

Okay so Jamie Foxx and Denzel and Forest Whitaker and Sidney Poitiere (sp?), and who else? Jamie ought to be grateful he was acknowledged at all. Seems like the roles he did after that were not as great as Ray. I know there is bitterness among our Black actors, only a few roles and many trying to get it. But only 4 black men win in the how many years has the oscars existed? Just seems like Jamie needs some humble pie to choke on...

Will Smith is a mediocre actor who happens to have mass box office appeal he's corny and really doesn't have depth - he had one Oscar worthy role when he played the gay guy conning the white folks but his other roles weren't that deep to me.

They're coming for you Will


HAHAHAHAHA

Corny! true. He has been corny since he got the rap grammy for Parents just don't understand, with the exception with Bad Boy with Martin Lawrence and Independence Day.

he gets the pass because he comes off as non-threatening to the masses, but

People of Color are definitely snubbed by the Oscars. No doubt about that. However, as a few others have stated THIS year the only black actor who got robbed was Idris Elba. That was an Oscar worthy performance.

@11:41 - Thank you! Will's contemporaries can act circles around him - Idris, David Oyelowo, Don Cheadle, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Forest Whitaker, just to name a few. He really isn't in their ranks as far as acting ability. Sorry, but #facts.

OT:

This married A-/B+ list mostly movie actress has A+ list name recognition

. She had to quit a hit network show because she is too sick to work that much. Smaller roles in movies is all she can handle right now.

^ This is supposed to be Jada/Gotham. I thought Jada looked "off" in that video she put out. Wonder what illness could she have?.....

Honey Bun said...

LOL
Jada done embarrassed Will so bad

@ 10:06 AM - Amen!

Say what you will about Will, but when it comes to Jamie and Denzel, it's a lot easier to talk when you #gotyours

Janet Hubert tried to tell everyone how shady Will was after he got her fired off of Fresh Prince..The truth is JH was the best actor on that show..Will, his queening ways,& overdomineering wife are going to get him blackballed.. They want everyone to boycott the Oscars because Will wasn't nominated, they don't care about anyone else..
I hope he saved his money because he & Jada are going to be like two lepers in Hollywood.
There's nothing wrong with boycotting, but these self serving heathens could care less about other black actors..Will is about to be eating humble pie for the next five years.
Jamie probably had a run in with Will, so he's throwing shade, but racism in Hollywood is real.

prissa o said...

@1:28 you are absolutely correct. JH was the best think on Fresh Prjnce. It wasn't the same once was replaced.

Stephanie S said...

Jamie Please! If I remember correctly, he won his oscar over Don Cheadle in Hotel Rwanda. Jamie may be a good actor, but he damn sure ain't in a league with Don Cheadle when it comes to acting chops. I don't think Don Cheadle has won an Oscar yet? That brother is all kinds of talented. SMH

You kwazy if you think Janet Hubert was the best thing on Fresh Prince. Absolutely, not!!

Sincerely,



Folks With Sense

@ 1:48 Janet Hubert was a damn good actress on Fresh Prince. She is the one who actually made me watch that show. Look @ Will Smith reading his lines under his breath in that first season. Watch his lips first season. That man was not funny untill a couple of seasons later. Second Viv brought nothing to this show. She was like a wooden spoon.

Check back when Denzel won his Oscar. He & Will were up for best actor when Denzel won Will liked to $hit. After Denzel said his speech the camera panned to Will & Jada but Wills seat was empty. He's a crybaby can't take the heat

If he didn't get it for I Am Legend, he's not getting one at all. Will, you sold your soul for fame...only white people can have both fame & glory.
