I can’t believe I’m writing this. I’ve been watching Will Smith for years. In fact, I like nearly all of his movies and yes, there are even some that I love. “Gettin’ Jiggy With It” is even one of my favorite summertime songs. And I think Will Smith is hilarious.
When I heard Smith was going to do a movie about the Williams sisters I thought to myself, “Well, that’s a terrible idea.” And then the movie started premiering at the festivals and was met with immense praise. There was even talk about Smith being a favorite for the Oscar win.
Fast forward to now and tonight may finally be the year that another Black man receives a win for Best Actor. If he doesn’t, the outcry is going to be tremendous. He’s swept all of the awards; Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, the SAGs, even the BAFTAs! It’s his Oscar to lose and I absolutely cannot wait to see this monumental moment this evening.
Who or what movie are you rooting for during tonight’s Oscars? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
