Viola Davis doubtful about success of #OscarsSoWhite
The actor Viola Davis steals the show of this year’s film awards season, by picking up about every single best supporting actress prize going for her performance as Denzel Washington’s besieged wife, Rose, in the film adaptation of Fences, by the late playwright August Wilson.
However Davis made use of press conference after her Bafta win to concern that this year in which Fences, Hidden Figures and Moonlight have taken slide of silverware may be bit variance. “I believe what still is a deficiency is that we have one year a plethora of African American movies and then the next year nothing.”
Predictions for following year’s awards have already been controversial, said Davis, “and very few African American names are in there”.
