“12 Years A Slave” Wins Best Picture At The 86th Annual Academy Awards

86th Academy Awards: Best Picture Nominees

It was well-deserved! Lupita picked up the Best Supporting Actress Oscar while John Ridley got the Best Screenplay Adaptation and “12 Years A Slave” earned the biggest award of all. It’s a great moment for blacks in Hollyweird but some people are already complaining that they’re tired of slave films. Are the complaints valid or should we allow ourselves this moment to celebrate the achievements of a great film that documents a painful past?

We’re including some videos from the cast tonight along with some PR photos from the film, but we want to hear your thoughts on this important discussion. Is the “12 Years A Slave” win a double-edged sword for black film???
