In the run up to the Oscars, some people have been calling for a boycott of the ceremony in protest of the way the producers have treated the Academy Awards, with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.
The hashtag is in fact a good thing, because it shows how much of the Oscars we’re missing out on when we’re talking about the cultural impact of movies.
When you look at the films nominated for best picture and best picture best picture, it’s hard to believe there are only two people on earth who have won Oscars for films that haven’t been made by white people.
And that’s a shame, because Hollywood has been trying to change that for decades, with movies like Django Unchained and The Revenant.
If you’re looking to skip the Oscars entirely, it can be done.
It’s just not easy.
There’s no shortage of movies to choose from, but for every big movie there are dozens of lesser-known gems that are worth looking at.
So here are the best films that are available for free on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, or Amazon Instant Video.
#OscarSoWhite, or #OScarsSoBlack?
I’d say that the #OSCARSSoWhite hashtag has taken off since the Oscars took place on January 12, 2017, which is the same day that the Oscars nominated The Reunion, which was directed by Anthony Minghella and starring Jamie Foxx.
The Reunited was also nominated for the best director Oscar for Best Picture.
I was a huge fan of the movie when it came out, and it’s now become one of my favorites, so it’s definitely worth a look.
If it was only the Oscars that were blacklisted, this would be a pretty good argument for why we should boycott the Oscars.
