i thought the secret life of bees was boring and think don cheadle deserves an award this year he’s a phenomenal actor.

this was a very biased article because everyonce knows that this movie was not the only movie that was nominated…Cadillac Records was also nominated…so why didnt yo show a picture of that too and of Beyonce, who got a lot of nominations. Stop hatin. And from what I sawm, and based on the opinions of a few others, Cadillac Records was WAY better than this movie…and Beyonce’s performance was phenomenal…Oscar worthy…I mean honestly. It shocked me

Diamond Said on

Beyonce performance was not Oscar worthy, don’t get me wrong it was good–but not Oscar worthy.

beyonce suck in cadillac records she dont know what da hell she doing like dreamgirls jennifer hudson stole that role from her

in order to be nominated for a oscar you have to carry the whole movie or half. i don’t who this alter ego of beyonce call sasha is but it seem to be a one-trick-pony act. she is good at playing a sassy angry neck-rollubg female. to be consider a great actor you need to display many complex emotional expressions, with your face, body and eyes. there was a obession movie trailer on bet recently showing a simple dialogue between beyonce and idris elba that didn’t call for a sassy act and her acting was horrible. this sasha personality will never get her an oscar nomination or anything else.

Camille Said on

Well I agree with some comments and I disagree with some comments as well. I thought Cadillac Records was a GREAT movie and Beyonce’s acting has improved alot. I thought she did a good job in the movie but I would not call it Oscar worthy for the simple reason she was only in the movie for about 30 to 40 minutes. Now if the writers and directors would have explored the Etta James story in more detail, then maybe.
People please stop saying J Hud stole Dreamgirls from Beyonce. If you look at the original Dreamgirls piece…Effie was ALWAYS supposed to be the more stronger character than Dena. I really wish this silent COMPARISON would go away between Beyonce and J Hud. It is so many other artist to explore in the music and film industry. The only thing I disagree with the Image Award nominations is that Rhianna was only nominated for 1 award when she clearly had a bigger year than that!

Samantha Said on

How are they hating just because they didn’t show Cadillac Records? I don’t get it and it’s not like Beyonce played a full role as Etta James so why get mad just because there’s a picture of The Secret Life Of Bee’s seriously people stop!!!!!
