Community, Memes, and American: 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.

Instagram, Life, and Memes: Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah; Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah, Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth – blogged by @MsJennyb (Swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, after Oprah Winfrey’s powerful Golden Globe speech that launched the unofficial “Oprah2020” campaign, Seal took to Instagram to call out the legendary host. At least that’s how it initially seemed. But, according to the singer-songwriter, we’ve got it all wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life,” Seal said in a video, just before clarifying his Instagram post which accused Winfrey of being apart of the sexual misconduct problem in Hollywood. “What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all, she just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seal’s photo included two photos of Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual assault allegations propelled the MeToo movement, where people share their stories of sexual misconduct, assault, and harassment. The picture was overlayed by text that read, “When you have been part of the problem for decades. But suddenly they all think you are the solution.” The singer posted the photo amid the massive wave of support for a potential presidential campaign for the host. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No. What I reposted was a commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood. So Fox News, back off! But, I’ll get to you later,” he said. “Next, to those of us who support the MeToo Movement, just know this. Not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who has come forward has received any real justice, whatsoever.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Losing your job because you either, A. raped, B. sexually abused or even sexually harassed a woman is not real punishment......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Baller Alert, Donald Glover, and Golden Globes: Ballerific Fashion: Donald Glover Wearing $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat @baller alert BallerificFashion: Donald Glover Wearing $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat - blogged by: @peachkyss - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DonaldGlover, also known as ChildishGambino, is starting the year off in a fashionable way. A few weeks ago, the actor-producer-rapper won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series. Now, he is taking his style to the next level for his Wired Magazine feature. The Atlanta star was spotted wearing a $53,000 Gucci flower intarsia mink fur coat, Ksubi jeans, and a white Cos button up top, styled by his longtime stylist OloriSwank. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Gucci flower intarsia mink fur coat is a long mink fur coat in natural black with hand-applied flowers. The intarsia is an intricate process that inserts separate colored pieces of mink to form the full pattern. It takes approximately 110 hours to complete. The inside of the coat is enhanced by an embroidered tiger, a recurring theme in Alessandro Michele’s collections, here the tiger is shown with the evolved “Blind for Love.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outside of his fashion, Glover also opens up to Wired magazine about music. In the article, Donald Glover talks about how kids today do not truly appreciate music and-or concerts. After holding a concert that sold out in six minutes, Glover added two more shows to accommodate his fans. However, there was one catch…. Phones had to be surrendered before entering. The goal was to have fans actually appreciate the moment. “Today, kids’ idea of going to a concert is proving that they are there on Snapchat or Instagram. We wanted to give them a complete show and have their attention.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you feeling his latest look? Would you splurge on a $53K Gucci Mink Fur Coat?
