Oscar's Black Odyssey (2003)

*** (out of 4)

Documentary taking a look at the history behind black actors winning awards. The most interesting aspect is seeing footage from the older Academy Awards but in the end this thing is really one side and rather politically incorrect in its own ways. Each nominated actor/actress is mentioned and it's always followed by "they should have won". Everyone interviewed keeps hinting at racism as the reason these black actors didn't win yet no one ever mentions that they might not have won because someone better was nominated. James Earl Jones gets a huge mention from 1970 yet George C. Scott is never mentioned as a reason why Jones might not have won.
