    Thanks for posting. Those nominated twice in the same category and still didn't win, ouch!

  • stephensgold | February 23, 2014 12:45 PMReply

    NAACP AWARDS......this is overkill on steroids. You are using one show to honor EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN and in doing so it screams "Look at me!" "I'm worthy, I'm worthy". For me, if you are going to honor music, then honor music. Film/Tv? Then honor film/tv. When you group EVERYTHING together in one awards show, for me it cheapens it. Just something to think about.

  • Mark W | February 24, 2014 3:45 PM

    Cmon, man, don't be surprised by this. The NAACP literally throws these "image" awards at any black celebrity with the most white popular acceptance. They haven't had an original, independent though in years.

    I really like Lupita but I believe the award should have went to Naomie Harris. I like both of these actors and hope they get to do even more in their careers. 12 Years a Slave was more compelling as an overall work, but I think Naomie's performance showed more range. Nonetheless, both of these actors are deserving.

    Also looking at the list, I believe Luther should have won in it's category for Outstanding Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special,

    So James, let me see if I understand what you're implying.

    First this-- "[Lupita's] role required a subtlety that she was able to greatly express". Yes, at times, in some scenes it required subtlety. However, in MANY scenes "subtlety" (an essential tool of the best actors) would not be the optimum nor only word I'd use in describing the brilliance in her performance.

    In Naomie's performance - your words--> "There were the quiet family moments as well as that of being a tortured soul to that of an extremist". Yeah, okay... **scrugging shoulders** ... what scene(s) took us (took you) into the this tortured soul you're referring to? Naomie never took me there with her. I am suggesting the devil's in the details of their performances. Therefore, I am still waiting for the scene(s) in which Naomie reached the superior range you mentioned in your previous comment.

    re: Switching directors. Are you implying that the film's buzz or lack thereof in regards to Mandela, had more to do with Lupita being championed over Naomie, than their individual performances? If so, granted, McQueen has shown he feels the pulse of moviegoers, moving them emotionally scene after scene, and "12 Years" was simply a more exciting story. But I fail to understand how switching directors relates to this discussion? Well, I will say McQueen seems to have the ability to get the best out of his actors, taking them to places they've never been before. Now, if he had directed "Mandela", Naomie's performance may have been of a higher standard, but he didn't. We can only judge that which is in front of us.

    Lupita portrayed a tragic character/person in history within a tragic environment. No security, no love, void of any close emotional support. The role required a subtlety that she was able to greatly express .

    Naomie portrayed a character/person in history that we are introduced to in the film as being a wife who grew into a revolutionary. There were the quiet family moments as well as that of being a tortured soul to that of an extremist.

    I believe if you switched directors/crew for both films and introduced Steve McQueens ambiance to "Mandela" and Justin Chadwick's to "12 Years" and kept the performances by the Lupita and Naomie the same, it would probably be demonstrated best in regards to just performance sans the films overall atmosphere.

    All in all. I love and support Lupita and Naomie equally. They both gave great performances and they are both great actors.

    "Naomie's performance showed more range" Serioulsy? Nope, not even close. I believe you guys would be hard-pressed to find (unlike Lupita) a scene or "scenes" in which Naomie had to reach several different emotional levels. So please, what range are you referring to?

    @ D.C., if anyone's performance was "just okay" it was Naomie's. There was nothing memorable about her portrayal of Winnie. I am not saying it wasn't a "good" performance but rating her's above Lupita's is a bit of a stretch.

  • D.C. Kirkwood | February 24, 2014 3:17 PM

    You said it perfectly "range" which Im not convinced Lupita has at this point. People are making such a big deal out what was a good performance in an overall solid film. She is just okay at this point let her put some more work in and then compare. I also think Naomi should have won.

  • Jason | February 23, 2014 12:43 AMReply

    um wow..if you actually watch the show, then you would know who won in every category. Even on the red carpet they announce the winners in multiple categories. So you don't need a Press Release...

    "which one had to convey a different range of personalities and emotions. I give that edge to Naomie."

    Well, I guess we will end this discussion right there. I differently disagree. Remember, Lupita's journey lastest 12 years. Throughout those years her personality changes immensely as her plight and struggles mounted, day after day, year after year. Consequently, she was forced to emote and " wear" a plethora of emotions (i.e., fear, love, lost love, lonely, joy, agony, doubt, disgrace, worthlessness, used & abused, devastated, remorse, relief, intimidated, thought of suicide, ashamed, loss of hope, and physical pain to say the least). Now THAT'S range. She gave us all of those emotions not only in the subtle nuances of facial expressions, but with her voice and body movements she delivered exactly what the character was feeling. And each day, each year, each scene there was something different. I cannot say the same for Naomie's performance.

    Quiet moments - Walking along with Idris/Mandela•General family moments

    Tortured moments - Children being abducted•the interrogation scene

    Extreme/Revolutionary moments - Court yard reaction to Mandela's imprisonment•release from jail•the transformation of her character/Winnie into a leader•conflict of her/Winnie's ideas to Idris/Mandela's.

    Also the aging of the character/Winnie through time.

    In regards to the buzz, 12 Years has more of an impact. It is more compelling in it's overall scope. I see 12 Years having more tangible/emotional moments, which to me makes it the stronger film to connect with overall. Great performances and direction.

    That being said, if the directors roles were swapped, and Steve embellished "Mandela" as he did with 12 Years with Naomie's acting, placed in a Steve McQueen environment, I think it would resonated more on an emotional level.

    Naomie's performance had to cover different periods within Winnie's life, so therein lies the range from a "softer" characterization to a "harder/stern" characterization. I felt it. As I felt Lupita's despair.

    I am not knocking Lupita at all, she was/is great, but I'm giving the edge to Naomie for the revolution of a character/Winnie, that I believe she successfully performed.

    The major deciding factor for me is that between these two good actors and two good performances, which one gave a strong performance - they both did - which one had to convey a different range of personalities and emotions. I give that edge to Naomie.
