White Stars Nominated For BET/NAACP Image Awards
The great white “diversity in Hollywood” debate has swerved into a white-splain-y abyss fueled by the whitest Oscars ever and Stacey Dash’s small-brained blabbery (BET/NAACP don’t award white people???) that flood social media daily.
Hit the flip for a collection of white people who were nominated for BET and NAACP Image Awards.
Sam Smith, Best New Artist – 2015 BET Awards (WINNER)
Dakota Fanning, Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture (Secret Life of Bees) – 40th NAACP Image Awards
Andrea Berloff & Jonathan Herman, Outstanding Writing in a Motion Picture (Straight Outta Compton) – 46th NAACP Image Awards
(Yes, the writers of Straight Outta Compton (who are both white) are nominated for an NAACP Image Award)
Empire co-creator Danny Strong, Outstanding Writing in a Motion Picture (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) – 45th NAACP Image Awards
(Fun fact: Same dude who co-created Empire wrote The Butler)
Brian Helgeland, Outstanding Writing in a Motion Picture (42) – 45th NAACP Image Awards
(The writer of the Jackie Robinson biopic is a white guy named Brian?)
