Essays on Oscar-nominated movies

In preparation for the Oscars on Sunday night, here are two recent essays I wrote on nominated movies. I won’t hold my breath after the Grammys travesty that robbed Bey’s Lemonade of all its richly deserved recognition,   and proved yet again that white mediocrity will always be recognized by the establishment over black excellence…But for the record, Team Moonlight in all its categories! Even best supporting actress, cuz Viola deserved to be nominated and to win in the best actress category for her role in Fences!
