[ # ] Who didn’t see this coming a mile away???
February 19th, 2007 under Beyonce, Dreamgirls

Beyoncé Knowles’ father Mathew is furious the superstar was overlooked at the Golden Globe Awards, accusing the film industry of discriminating against blacks. The singer-turned-actress failed to pick up a single nomination for her role in Dreamgirls, and – despite Golden Globe wins for African-Americans Forest Whitaker, Eddie Murphy, Prince, Jennifer Hudson and the movie itself – Knowles blames his daughter’s omission on racism. He told reporters after the ceremony on Monday, "Today is MLK’s (Martin Luther King’s) birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go."


Seriously? OMG! My friend and I were joking last week how he would say Hollywood is racist because she did not get an Oscar nom even though Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Dreamgirls will. It is not racism, she just wasn’t good enough.
