Re: Helen Mirren wins Best Actress from African American Critics Awards!!

not really. They just wanted to maintain credibility. Helen was MILES better than BEYONCE' even though Dreamgirls was more entertaining.

Yey. Go Helen. She's one of my favorite actresses.

Re: Helen Mirren wins Best Actress from African American Critics Awards!!

Didn't know Beyonce was talked about winning any awards?

Being excited about that is like being excited that Matt Damon won an award over Ben Afleck........... basically, getting excited over the expected outcome against an opponent that really didn't have a chance to win in the first place.

I wonder why the thread started didn't entitle his thread 'Dreamgirls' Dominate AAFCA awards like the article? Oh I know it's because if he did that he may have to face the fact that winning the best movie award means that Beyonce actually does win an award since she was an integral part of the movie?

Re: Helen Mirren wins Best Actress from African American Critics Awards!!

why is it a slap in the face if they are acknowledging the better actress?. You are implying that because it is an African-American, they would go for the black person Keep showing your ass. Don't stop.

Just wondering why you feel the need to call Beyonce a bitch. What has she done to make you sprew such venom towards her? She's not my favorite person nor do I think she's the best vocalist out there but I've not heard of her doing or saying vicious things to or about anyone.

Congrats to Forrest Whittaker. It's been a long time coming. I've always liked him and can't wait to see the movie. Here's a link to a great interview/video with Forrest on NPR.

Hellen Mirren is not just any old english actress! She's a major talent who has performed a variety of roles in just about every genre in her career. Not to mention she isn't afraid of showing a bit of skin when the part calls for it. I also think she is still quite attractive, even more considering she's now into her 60's.

Re: Helen Mirren wins Best Actress from African American Critics Awards!!

I won that award back in '58 for "I Want To Live!" but then it was called "The Coloreds' Critics Awards."
They replaced it with the new name back in the 70s. I never had an award recalled before!

ROTF!! These same actresses are hailed for their performances each year and it's the same type of role and movie (elizabeth 1, 2, 3). Anyways, the award is not the serious. Instead of focusing on who won Beyonce's haters have found a way to include her name in a non-issue . I swear everytime this woman sneezes you can bet the haters are not far behind.

I still haven't had a chance to see The King Of Scotland. I liked him in Jason's Lyric so it's about time he gets the recognition.

This may be a good year for black actors and actresses. Jennifer Hudson nominated for best supporting, Eddie nominated for best actor, Will Smith nominated,and Dreamgirls picking up a few more. Hopefully it doesn't end up being another Color Purple fiasco, can't wait for the Awards.
