Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles. 

Chile

listen…

Halle Berry won and then played a bunch of bit parts or had to produce her own movies to get meaty roles…eventually turning to tv on a show she’s producing.

Denzel won and then was either typecast, teamed up with mediocre action stars, or produced his own movies to get meaty roles.

Jennifer Hudson won and her reward was playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant in Sex And The City.

Monique won and disappeared because she angered people by speaking up about the bs.

Viola Davis keeps getting the broken, disheveled mom or wise friend roles… and eventually had to turn to a Black female producer on tv.

like… you can’t tell me this is typical for white actors. we talk about how shameful it is that Leo hasn’t won, but Leo has no trouble getting good, challenging, interesting starring roles. Neither do Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr…. like… come on! and yeah, white women have it harder than white men, but let’s talk about how much harder it is for Viola Davis to get a decent role than Sandra Bullock.

True ass facts.

And all these women are immensely talented and can out act all the Jennifer Lawrences, Blake Livelys, and etc.

being black in america is like being at a party that you were dragged to and no one at the party wants you to be there but you cant leave. so you try to find other people at the party just like you and have some fun in a lil corner. Then when you’re having a good time, the other party goers are like “ooo looks like they’re having fun doing that, lets do that too and say we made it up”
