Still "Bloomin' Brilliant"

Love the natural hair, she rocks but getting snubbed for the Oscar is really disappointing. Would have been great to see a dark-skinned woman win top honours at this year's Academy Awards but yet again, they give it to Meryl Streep. Ah, Hollywood. Either way. Another favourite of mine, Octavia Spencer was honoured. They're both amazing and there is something to remember in all of this. Hollywood is still a business run by white dudes and that is exactly why brilliant actors whose skin just happens to be a darker hue are being denied what is owed to them. Awards.
