Lent: Part 3

Moonlight (2016) – As a full-time, amateur smartass, I have a hard time making any commentary on Moonlight. There’s a lot I’ll never really understand about growing up black, but I can at least identify to some degree with growing up gay in a culture that punishes that. Still, I worry that anything I say here could easily drift into the flippant or even just insufficient. I’ve only seen one other Best Picture nominee this year, but I’m pretty confident saying they made the right call for once. I’m sure they’ll get back to congratulating themselves for being good people in no time.

    Best Picture for Moonlight means the Academy can give themselves a pass on thinking about black people for another 10 years, right?

      Basically, yeah. Expect to see tributes to themselves for generations to come about that time they gave an Oscar to a gay, black movie.
