Why is anyone surprised? Obama was elected twice for the same reason.
Google Pregnant Badass. No reason not to make Black Widow one of those.
I don't see why people are surprised. The Academy has awarded Oscars to actors based on factors other than being the most outstanding achievement for decades now. There is no liberal agenda here. John Wayne won his Oscar for True Grit when he was still struggling with cancer and they all thought he was going to die when his actual Oscar worthy performance came in The Shootist 7 years later. Elizabeth Taylor got her Oscar the same way. Julie Andrews won for Mary Poppins because she was denied the role she originated on Broadway in My Fair Lady, but gave a much stronger performance the following year in The Sound of Music. @Remy, you are ignorant and are doing nothing more than trolling and doing it poorly. The film deserved the accolades it got and if you were correct in your reasoning about why it won then explain why The Color Purple- a fabulous movie that got 9 nominations- won nothing.
