Or you know... Maybe they should be upset with black directors/producers like Tyler Perry and the Wayans bros for continuing to put garbage out year after year, instead of creating something Oscar worthy...

I can't believe you didn't lead with Spike Lee.

The scandal is ridiculous but that comparison is flawed IMO, since running speed is objective whereas acting skills are subjective.

Acting skills aren't subjective... It's a matter of if the person can make you believe that they really are the character.

speak for yourself. you're on the internet. have you not seen the idiotic backlash about this utterly meaningless story?

Yes, this story, in and of itself, is meaningless. As are the thousands of other stories exactly like it; on their own they mean nothing. When you add them all up; both in sheer number and increasing regularity, combined with the fact that the event is otherwise meaningless yet was given meaning by the people calling for the boycott, it pissed people off. This particular story isn't more important than any other inherently, it just came at the right time and with a proper level of needless ridiculousness to set off what is sure to become a more frequently occurring and increasingly intense backlash.

i'm sorta against this argument. sports are, uniquely, inherently meritocratic. i say uniquely because there is almost nothing else in the entire world that's as black and white as sports. certainly not something as subjective as art like film.

Aren't the Oscars supposed to be the same way ?

The Oscars are a circle jerk for more ad revenue. If you're not nominated for one, you shouldn't give a shit about them.

film is subjective. a 100 meter time is not.

Yes, they are. I think what they were saying is that you run into problems when gauging a film in that it can't be objectively judged like a sport. X player has 80% accuracy, 22 average points per game, etc. in basketball. There isn't the same objective standard for rating actors; although there are certain measurements of a film's success that can be used, like ticket sales.

Just because you don't understand anything about judging art objectively, doesn't mean that all art is completely subjective.

I'll contend that art is completely subjective. Just because a lot of people agree that a certain piece of art is good or bad doesn't mean that that judgement was objective. It was a lot of subjective judgments that happened to be the same.

Well, the NHL is white. So it's more like sports are 95% black and 5% white.
