POLL CONTEXT: JAMIE FOX: BLACK ACTORS NEED TO “ACT BETTER” TO WIN OSCARS. Jamie Foxx has reportedly told fellow actors of color threatening a boycott of the Oscars over its all-white nominees to #actbetter if they want to win the top prize. Appearing at the American black film festival awards on Sunday, the Oscar-winner joked that he and Denzel Washington were unimpressed with complaints over the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ failure to nominate a single actor of color for the second year in a row.
“All these Oscar talks, I don’t even trip about that,” said Foxx, according to US Weekly. “I mean, what’s the big deal? I was sitting at home with my Oscar, like ‘What’s all the hubbub?”
