Best Actor: First Black Oscar Award Winner, Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic @balleralert First Black Oscar Award Winner Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic – blogged By @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, a biopic for African American and Hollywood pioneer, HattieMcDaniel is now in the works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those of us who’ve slept on black history- McDaniel was the first African American (man or woman) to receive an Oscar. Her role as “Mammy” in the film “Gone With The Wind” earned her the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” in 1940. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the film’s success and eight Oscar Awards, McDaniel, along with the rest of her black castmates weren’t allowed at the premiere of the film in Georgia. The color of her skin also caused for McDaniel to not be allowed to sit with the rest of the nominated cast at the Oscar Awards, but allowed her a seat in the back of the venue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Variety, producers of the film, AaronMagnani and AlysiaAllen got their hands on the rights to Jill Watts’ published biography, “Hattie McDaniel: Black Ambition, White Hollywood” to help them with the film. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though people in the black community criticized her for playing roles that they felt fed into racial stereotypes for African Americans, McDaniel served as a pioneer and example for aspiring African American actors and actresses for generations to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Considering the fact that the first black man to receive a golden globe for best actor in a TV series happened just a week ago, this biopic is a big deal, and long overdue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Continue to rest in peace Ms. McDaniel and congratulations.

Best Actor: Jamie Foxx Joins The Cast of "Signal Hill" As Black Panther Leader Geronimo Pratt @balleralert Jamie Foxx Joins The Cast of “Signal Hill” As Black Panther Leader Geronimo Pratt – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The triple-threat, actor, singer, and comedian JamieFoxx has officially joined the cast of “Signal Hill,” a film about Johnnie Cochran’s determination to seek justice in the policy brutality case in 1981. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deadline, Foxx will be joining the likes of Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Banks and more to tackle the moving story. Mackie will play Cochran, who rose to fame as a legal powerhouse in the case. Banks has signed on as Mary Neiswender, an investigative newspaper reporter for the Long Beach Press-Telegram, who investigated the Signal Hill case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for Foxx, the actor will be teaming up with Taylor Hackford, the man behind “Ray” for which Foxx won the Best Actor Oscar. In “Signal Hill,” Foxx will play Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt, the former Black Panther party leader that was sent to prison for more than two decades for a crime that he didn’t commit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Written by David McMillan, the film centers on the case of Cal State Long Beach star Ron Settles, who had been booked for speeding in L.A. County. However after his arrest, Settles was found hanged in his cell, uncovering a slew of police misconduct and brutality. With Cochran’s legal expertise, the family was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in a civil suit after an autopsy showed Settles was choked to death.
