As for giving Awards to people (aka drawing a target around a person to make a bullseye), people will feel cheated because this “brand new Movie award” was given because they are not “good enough” for the ORIGINAL Oscar awards. As a member of the black community, it surprised me to find out that there are people who believe stuff like this.
Something to keep in mind behind the thought process of people.
