The numbers are in. Even Warren Beatty's Best Picture flub couldn't save Sunday night's Oscar Awards snooze fest. ABC viewers tuned out in droves as spoiled leftwing celebrities threatened to turn the 2017 Oscars telecast into their anti-Trump political platform.

The 2017 Oscars telecast clocked in at 3 hours and 49 minutes -- the longest Oscars telecast in 10 years. Early numbers show the telecast averaged 22.4 rating among metered market households.

With 34.3 million viewers tuning in, Sunday's telecast ranks 3rd as the lowest watched in 17 years.

The 2008 ceremony hosted by Jon Stewart comes in 1st with a dismal 20.8 overnight rating and only 32 million viewers.

    Good thang Strong White Woman explained these ratings already last night. Scroll through the old posts if you want the education.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Soooo this article is complete bs. It is written in a bias privileged way. So it is ok to overlook Casey Affleck's charges because: 1) his victims didn't kill themselves; 2) he handled it "better" publicly; and 3) his acting was better in his nominated film opposed to Nate's.

    That man is fine!!!!!!

  • BRuhman_Vista

    I'm pretty sure they'll say the Russians hacked the Oscars. Keep it movin' ???

  • Emily post

    A lot of the country avoided the show as a protest against Hollywood. That was the buzz all over the NET how nobody wanted to hear a lot of political speeches from Liberal Hollywood.

  • Irony

    What post? I would love to read his commentary.

  • hi-liter

    Two very fine actors....so proud to be represented by both of them.

  • Emily post

    lol when all else fails blame Russia

  • iWasteTime

    ABC viewers tuned out in droves as

    The Walking Dead came on ... lol

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Sigh...2017 Oscar Awards Least Watched Since 2008 followed by pics of the BLACK winners ?. I'm glad Iike my kinfolk cuz...

    Hey y'all!!!

    So we ain't getting a nicki/remy post??

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Mahershala Wins post. Here's what was fonted:

    "The 2017 Oscar awards will likely be among the lowest rated broadcasts as viewers tune out due to the political grandstanding of spoiled celebrities"

    Lmao! No rest fur di wicked as my great great Haitian grandmother would say? If this broadcast turns out to be low in numbers it's because all awards shows have become low in viewership as new media has exploded. It's why the MTV-BET awards are being aired on several different networks simultaneously. Same with the Sag awards on TNT and TBS. Too much competition. Too many channels. Too many outlets. If viewership followed politics the ratings would be up much like Hillary's final tally, no???? Has nothing to do with the political beliefs of celebs. If that's the case Mel Gibson's pack of ni**ers ass wouldn't even be there? I see you alt righters though. Y'all stay ready! Like Suga Free? Victory shall be yours, like Stewie G? All alternative, truthfully #barz"

  • iWasteTime

    Anyone catch the name of that Will Smith/Netflix movie ?

  • Lovezoe

    Honestly, it's long. It's boring. I (bolded) don't like JK jokes. Snooze fest. We live in a world where acceptance speeches and winners are announced on SM immediately.

  • Irony

    Taraji snubbed a winner last night. I also heard her say "hmm," before the camera went back to them and she announced the guy. I saw something in her attitude last night, I don't agree with.

  • Irony

    Thank you!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Funny you should mention that. I don't care about her snubbing anyone but the way she inserted herself into the Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj beef...was interesting. I don't know how to explain it. She even kinda remarked about it on the red carpet.

  • nicelyput32

    Bright

  • Chardonnai

    She's cleary here for Remy.

  • iWasteTime

    Thanks!!

  • missmiami305

    Ayo Meek is so lame for this. For real!!! This says so much about his character.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXAkEfzkBE0&feature=youtu.be

  • Chardonnai

    The bus tour segment was dope. Jimmy asked that black man was he avoiding all the white actors. He said "I am" LMAO. I died.

    We gonna be US no matter what...

  • KDub

    Yep. Her character Cookie was mentioned by Rem in SHE-ther and she has previously been on SNL dragging the life outta Minaj in a skit. She also liked Remy's levels of petty post I think.

  • missmiami305

    Lmao!!!!!!!! He was honest

  • MissyJ

    A lot of of the folks that were mentioned on the track had something to say.. I'll have to see if this was a "snub" or her being human and having an opinion on the Oscar tip

  • missmiami305

    I didn't see it but maybe she's just over Hollywood and their bs. U know sometimes we have to be in the mood to front with them folks and maybe yesterday was a bad day for her.

  • chris

    Birth of a nation was snubbed.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I thought Jimmy Kimmel did a great job. As long as the African American community was represented in nominations & wins. I could care less about who tuned in. I'm sure the ones that didn't tune in knew that we were going to be represented this year..

  • Chardonnai

    I think she knew Hidden Figures wasnt gonna win.

    She wasnt personally nominated for anything...

  • Irony

    I understand. I really like her, but that I thought was ugly. I'm going to see if i can find it. I could be thinking too much into it, but Janelle embraced the guy Taraji stepped back like he was contagious. Lol Again maybe everyone else can analyze it.

  • puppylove

    Oh well, i never watch anyway. Too damn long.

  • shaylynnn

    It's a fake video. They covered his video w her song. But she definitely played sb out after they broke up so her time is coming lol

  • missmiami305

    if you find it post it. you know she a round the way girl so she prolly wasn't feeling their bs.

  • Chardonnai

    Taraji aint here for the fakeness, I'm not mad. We dont have to act like we happy when we are not.

    Fluck that.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Man listen ... Cause I was watching .... I ain't stuttin np Oscars although I'm happy for the winners ... but I don't fugg around when my show on chile

  • shaylynnn

    It's a video of Rem from jail rapping about her being the better rapper.

  • missmiami305

    oh okay! i was like that's foul. thanks for clearing it up

  • puppylove

    It is being said this video is fake, but he a fcukboi so it wouldn't surprise me if it was real. They caught him singing fake friends in the club.

  • Chardonnai

    She knew that 13th or I am not your Negro should have won for best Documentary.

    Who gives a shyt about OJ. A documentary dedicated to Nicole Brown coke snorting ass. All hail to the Sprite woman. Blah blah blah...FOH.

  • Strong White Woman

    Let me go cut n paste my explanation for this before the trumpettes take credit for dismantling and defeating the so called "over rated" overly liberal Hollywood. Hold Please?

  • Elevated Soul

    LOL@ this "too real" write-up!

    I rarely go to the movies so i don't even know who these people are.I did however hear that the Black man who won probably did so because the movie contained some very explicit homosexual scenes.I believe Viola Davis won as well.

  • Wile E. Coli

    It is impossible to tell why people win, whether they earned it or it is PC.
    Not to mention that Hollywood could spend a year making the worst films of all time , and they would still pat themselves on the back every year.

    It really isn't worth watching anymore.
    Jackie Mason had it right. "A toilet is more important"

  • Ms. Jackson

    Off post** Did I miss something? Sandra not gone do a post on how RemyMa murdered Nicki the other day? Sheesh!

  • Justlooknout

    I watched and once Ali won, I went nite nite.

  • shaylynnn

    No problem!

  • LadyFrance

    can we do a post on the rachel dozel mess going on right now. I feel like being ignorant and reckless with my comments today. its been that kind of weekend ...

  • imright

    Gary from Chi Town ???

  • missmiami305

    He wasn't apart of any "very explicit homosexual scenes" in the film.

  • Chardonnai

    Eye dont care about that bish

  • Irony

    That's the one I'm talking about the guy who won for OJ she straight up dissed his ass.

  • missmiami305

    Lmao! Too funny

  • KDub

    Im currently crine at this. Real big tears.

  • Chardonnai

    Alternative Facts. It wasnt explicit at all.

  • Strong White Woman

    Tossing around alternative facts and stats is just another alt right ploy to deflect away from what went down last night. Black folks won! Deservingly?

  • Miany

    I am HEREEEE for Gary.

  • puppylove

    Everybody wanna be a nigga, but don't nobody wanna be a nigga. She bout to hideout, change her name and either get a new job or a white savior.

  • DroneRivers

    Nice! Kinda like how Trump's inauguration was one of lowest attended. Ever.

  • Elevated Soul

    Alternative Facts are what you and your ilk specialize in,so bounce!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MissyJ

    So just rewatched the Oscar mistake... The dude that knew they lost and still gave his acceptance speech ??? and then said btw we lost. I guess that's why folks is big uppin Jordan cause whoever that guy was he was petty

  • Luvn_it

    Not to mention Jimmy Kimmel being the worst host since I can't remember when.

  • KDub

    Her ass really still riding with the Im black lie vs turning into the cave demon she was born as and embracing her damn white priv. so she can get a job and take care of her kids. I have NEVER seen anything LIKE it. Gone head Rachael. Be the white woman you were born as. Its okay. We dont want you anyways.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It's not that it's the Oscars. It's more of having to sit in one spot for almost 4 hours, in the most uncomfortable digs possible. After all these years, the interactions tween blacks and whites at the Oscars is still forced, yet awkward.

    The ending with Warren Beatty was horrendous. A felt bad for LALA and Moonlight. Moonlight will never get that moment back and Lala will never live down the humiliation of it all. Horrible, horrible, horrible.

  • MissyJ

    She can't get a new job. That's her problem. She said she on food stamps cause nobody got love for her

  • LadyFrance

    she going thorugh real world problems all because of her lies

  • iWasteTime

    Demi Lovato part black too .... GO!

  • KDub

    I dont think she is about to do ANY of that. She still embracing her imaginary blackness.

  • Miany

    fugg that heaux come roundst here claiming 1% black..BYE DEMI!

  • Erin Blockabitch

    1% African. She could've kept that to herself.

  • Strong White Woman

    Or maybe she's going through some things. I saw her interject herself into the Remy/Nicki feud the other day? I was like? She clearly chose sides and called Remy Nicki's karma. I was like hmmm this is a bit messy for someone who's not an Instagram model or YouTube celeb.lol. It's possible she's going through something? I didn't see the Oscar moment that is being discussed, but I got my eye on ??

  • Chardonnai

    Cause she knows Ava and james Baldwin got snubbed.

  • KDub

    I think she feels as if her struggling is showing solidarity somehow. Rachael needs to get some mental help.

  • puppylove

    That's why the gonna change her name. Too much infamy. And what jobs she applying for? Hopefully nothing at a university, and nothing having to do with minority rights.

  • Chardonnai

    Whats wrong with her picking a side?

  • Justlooknout

    Doubt, as long as she acting...and cashing checks. I like her but she is one dimensional. I MO

  • Lovezoe

    WHALE whites are the largest population on stamps so she in good company.

  • Strong White Woman

    ??

  • missmiami305

    You're right, they will never get that moment back. That's what pisses me off. It was their moment and it was diminished by their petty antics.

  • puppylove

    FDB I didn't choose to put on my blackness. She chose it so she could get scholarships, and other opportunities that were meant for US.

  • Justlooknout

    Life as we know it..

    Aliens would get better treatment than blacks.

  • KDub

    Probably. She feels as if she is qualified being that she went to Hillman and all. And that she had that job before all the lies came out. Teaching a class called "The Black Women's Struggle". Smdh.

  • Evillene

    I thought Jimmy Kimmel was the best Oscar host in memory.

  • Buttercup

    Gary gave me so much life!

  • puppylove

    Hope she checking the white box on them papers, so she doesn't throw our numbers off.

  • puppylove

    Again FDB

  • missmiami305
  • Irony

    It doesn't start where I'd like but clearly you can see some of what I mentioned. https://youtu.be/WQhcTpbnixU

  • puppylove

    EVERYBODY 1% African

  • missmiami305

    everybody want to be black but nobody want to be black lol

  • KDub

    Imma gone head and bet Rachael is still checking black

  • DroneRivers

    LMAO. I was born petty, but Lord knows Sandra will bring it out real quick!

  • Strong White Woman

    Publicly and assertively. Remy made some very slanderous statements about Nicki. Taraji called it karma. That's more than picking sides?

  • MissyJ

    Sissy claw you talmbout she went to Hillman

  • puppylove

    Lemme call down to the welfare office and report that fraud.

  • MissyJ

    Meanwhile the JCC where I work out is getting bomb threats.. Can folks get a life?

  • Erin Blockabitch

    She knows that when she mentioned the African part of her ancestry, there are some bobblehead Black folks who will be rushing to claim her. She needs to be seated, but not at the Black folks' table.

  • Chardonnai

    THIS!!!!!!

    Now she gonna be wearing jailhouse braids and door knocker earrings. Her 1% DNA allows her to.

    FOH Heaux.

  • missmiami305
  • missmiami305

    yes, she needs an intake eval STAT

  • KDub

    Lmao. Bf got my ass with that over the weekend we were talking about Rachael. He was like she went to Hillman! What do you expect? *wails* he calls her Maggie. the lone white girl on A Diff. World.

  • missmiami305

    She better invoke her privilege lol

  • Yoni7

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, death to Viola's wig/weave.

  • LadyFrance

    I believe so too. Why else go to the media about you being on foodstamps and about to lose your job. Step in line with the MILLIONS of people, white, black etc. That dosnt make a person special. It just means they are going through a struggle. She is partially blaming this MESS on not being able to label herself as TRANS-BLACK. WTF is that? You cannot just put on "being black" like a coat or a hat. Its who you are. We can't just all of a sudden claim to be a white woman and expect to be treated as such. GTFOH! She can easily empathize with the black struggle and life as it is from her position as a WHITE WOMAN. More volume would be shown to the demographic she "says" she is trying to change (white people) if she stayed in her lane and showed that as a WHITE WOMAN she can see us as human beings and not as a fad or a trend. Her very actions, verbage and thoughts towards us and about us defeat any good she had delusions of doing. And FYI incase she forgot, WE DONT NEED A WHITE SAVIOR. WE ARE CAPABLE ON OUR OWN TO DELIVER OURSELVES

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She's a Trump supporter.
    Facts like Trump hiring foreigners at Mara-La-Go and his winery in Virginia didn't keep people like ES from believing that Trump was against immigrants.

  • KDub

    ALL of this.

  • Buttercup

    Why do you do this to me? ??

  • Chardonnai

    Cause I'da been turn back white. She stupid. Struggling cause she wanna be black. If this aint the dumbest shyt I've ever heard. She must have gotten so GOODT BBD. Cause she aint never going back...

    That BBD must had some brainwashing sprinkled in it.

  • Yoni7

    the interactions tween blacks and whites at the Oscars is still forced

  • puppylove

    Leave Viola's wig alone, and direct your forces to that thang on Halle's head.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    ya'll late. ours happeed a week & half ago. Guess theyre doiung it in waves.

    I wish she would wear her real hair 100% of the time.
    She looks so much better than those ratty fake wigs.

  • stanhope

    You aren't reporting on Kim and Kanye's snub not getting invited to the vanity fair post oscar party? Even Mariah and Monica Lewinsky were there and rumored Caitman Jenner. The YT folks scoop again.

  • missmiami305

    Everybody always looks so uncomfy and uptight. Forced indeed. But, can you imagine if folks picked had their way. Man, it would be like the highschool cafeteria all over again. All the black folks sitting together on one side having a good time cutting up and well.........you can figure out the rest lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    They say it was Halle's real hair and I assumed as much although everyone else claimed it was a wig.

    It's just that she hasn't allowed it to grow out that much in many years.

  • Lovezoe

    As long and as boring, we would have roast sessions and playing spades.

  • Luvn_it

    The Best Picture mix up wasn't the only blunder. Awarding that piece of trash Best Actor over Denzel was too much the Best Picture blunder was just the icing on the cake. Birth of a Nation gets no nominations after receiving positive refuse and Oscar talk and Nate doesn't get a invite b/c of sexual assualt charges that happened in 98/99. That he wasn't even found guilty of that someone decided to bring back up 18yrs later. Yet casey affleck who has been accused of rape and sexual by 2 women more recently gets an invite and wins an Oscar that wasn't deserved.??

  • Strong White Woman

    That's a cute meme?

  • stanhope

    Letting the bus crew in was genius. Mr Black Dude from chicago was kissing all of the YT actresses....nicole kidman looked like she wanted to die.

    Maybe she didn't have the time to style it. I know it can be a pain sometimes. Especially if she were running from event to event. A wig was prolly faster. Giving her the benefit of the doubt. But she looked gorgeous nonetheless.

    This lady went IN.
    "However, the biggest difference between Parker’s story and Gibson and Affleck’s stories is that Gibson and Affleck are wealthy, well-connected, and white. Gibson has been a Hollywood superstar for decades. Affleck isn’t as well known as the other Affleck, but the other Affleck is his brother.

    Nate Parker was a relatively unknown actor on the cusp of making it big. He didn’t have the connections or the wealth necessary to make his scandal disappear. He was also black, and his alleged victim was white. Parker’s story fit neatly into that old American horror story of the pure and innocent white woman menaced by the sexually aggressive black man — that story that so neatly combines misogyny and racism — which imbued it with staying power."

  • Irony

    Denzel is over it, you can tell by the apeech he gave pre-show.

    hey there,

    I thought ya'll men folk didnt care about our hair?

  • missmiami305

    Chile I saw it in her demeanor as soon as I clicked. She just wasn't feeling it and you can tell. Chile she was like lemme hurry up and gtfoh. She with her homegirls too. She wasn't there for it!!! It didn't bother me. I also think the film being awarded had a lot to do with it. She has been vocal about the disparity within the industry involving black women like her. Btw, his speech was total bs and NOBODY CARES **draya voice**

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Co Worker came to tell me that she has 1% North African in her DNA- she did that DNA mess.

    Taraji obviously knew something that we didn't lol. Chile she was like here. No need to touch me, I'm good.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    if only we had our own esteemed version of these award shows. trust and believe more blacks would win at the oscars and grammy's. some of our people's need for their acceptance is the reason why the snub us so much. i've seen it first hand. soon as they see you're over them and stick solely to associating with your folk at work, here they come inviting you to lunches, happy hour, birthday parties, etc.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    we did, and someone else too..
    I did the 360 frontal yesterday; I need the simultaneous upvote / downvote button for it

  • KDub

    And the heffa who WROTE this is white her owndamn self and SHE gets it. Im not sure why folks cant see it.

  • missmiami305

    We have our own. Folks just hold the Oscars higher because it's run by yt folk.

  • Lovezoe

    So how it turn out?

  • Erin Blockabitch

    We have the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) Awards. Great show. Great acknowledgement of Black actors and actresses' past and present works.

  • Lovezoe

    Wanna show y'all the hair I got.

  • missmiami305

    THEY don't want to. It's easier to live in denial.

  • Buttercup

    Dang. I always understood it as men don't care how I hair is styled. They just like for it to be presentable. *Thinks back when Cockblocker FaceTimed me then asked if I needed money to go to the salon, and I thought my messy bun was crute.*

  • Yoni7

    You need to "pick yo afro, Hallleeee because it's flat on one siiiiiddde."

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I wish, black women are definitely expected to be black barbies / the forbidden fruit they cant have

  • Yoni7

    If only for one night. Not a prollem. LOL

  • Erin Blockabitch

    They don't know how to lose gracefully. They will know they lost and still give an acceptance speech so their peers can publicly commend them re: how "gracious" they are in losing.

  • DroneRivers

    I am so tickled!

  • Yoni7

    What type of way. I didn't listen to it, I just watched it.

  • DroneRivers

    For the second time.

  • missmiami305

    trust me i get it. i'm natural as well and some days man oh man. it can be a time. our hair requires a lot more maintenance and sometimes i don't have the patience either. so i totally get it. especially being responsible for my two daughters who have a head full of hair. washing, detangling and styling can easily take 4 hours and that's on a good day for one head. u have to be in the mood and on the days that you're not, grab a wig lol

  • missmiami305

    i know.

  • Carolina Blue

    Show it on your head.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    I got two lace fronts I never worn I'm scared...I love the idea I just don't switch up my look too often

  • CrunchyBlack1

    yeah i seen Denzel at the ABFF too. if big name acclaimed folk start coveting it like orpah and the likes it'd be a force to be reckoned with

  • Just An Observation

    Congratulations to Viola Davis being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Tony & Emmy.

  • Yoni7

    I have on a wig NOW. I'm telling yall this underneath ain't NOTHING to play with. I'm scared of it.

  • Irony

    He went on to say how it was for Ron and Nicole. I was like. ?

  • puppylove

    I wanna ser. Waiting on my purchase to come.

  • Carolina Blue

    New post.

  • Lovezoe
  • Chardonnai

    He made a bullshyt documentary about OJ. How many times we gonna hear the same story over and over and over.

    This was all about worshiping Nicole Brown and making her the victim again

  • Simple_humbleMe

    WOW that's big

  • Lovezoe

    I got to make a wig first fool. First comment and you cutting up

  • CrunchyBlack1

    yeah i seen it, but we dont take that serious cuz it doesnt have that white approval

  • CrunchyBlack1

    damn shame cuz fences was a great movie too

  • Carolina Blue

    ??? Oh my bad...

  • KDub

    This my struggle too @missmiami305:disqus. I have another head to do and I take pity on my lil almost bonus daughter and be tryna help her on the weekends with her hair too lmao. Bf be like Ms. Dub dont like no hair baby. She not eem feeling her OWN hair. You got that right.

  • DroneRivers

    His directing AND acting were top notch. You can tell he really takes his craft seriously and gives his all.

  • KDub

    Dont be scared!!!

  • Prettybootnikki

    I thought whoopie had them??

  • CrunchyBlack1

    thats the sad thing, especially when you know the card are stacked in you favor win lose or draw. cant stand to take an L against a black male or woman...smh

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I'm not sure who "we" are, but I took the awards show seriously, as I take the ABFF Independent films shown on Aspire. Unless they're better actors and actresses than I think they are, the awards recipients seemed really enthusiastic about their honors, and rightfully so. It is truly the best awards show I've ever seen. TBH, white folks who run the Oscars, GRAMMYs, etc. should watch the ABFF Awards and take copious notes.

  • Chardonnai

    Whoopi was the first. She has an EGOT.

  • DroneRivers

    Whoopi does. AND a Grammy. She is one of the rare EGOTs.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    exactly oh well. i know being accepted by all your peers means something but denzel need just come on back home lol

  • Lovezoe

    You can't help it

  • MsPam

    Why can't y'all support a brotha! Well a half one! ????

  • puppylove

    Super pretty. What are the lengths?

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Hmmm, think I misinterpreted then!
    I think I took being presentable and replaced with not caring ?

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I don't believe they like to lose against one another. They just play the role that they're proud for their fellow white actor or actress when they lose to them. It's like a sigh of relief rather than them truly conceding.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Let me see ??

  • CrunchyBlack1

    some dont seem as though its a true honor unless whites are giving it to them.

  • Lovezoe

    16 18 20

  • puppylove

    Don't believe that is true. Think Whoopi has all 3 as well

  • Erin Blockabitch

    I understand.

  • Carolina Blue

    So you have to buy it then turn around and make a wig??? Thats tooo much like work.

  • Carolina Blue

    Maybe....

  • shaylynnn

    Lmaooooo. She burning bridges out here too, w the breakfast club. Instead of responding, just stalling until the ghost writers come through.

  • MsPam

    "White Approval" says it all. Viola got one so we can stop hearing her cry about it!

  • Lovezoe

    Making your own gives your more control plus it's relaxing to me

  • Just An Observation

    Not an Emmy for acting. Acting category...

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Lol!!! I have so many more I wanna get I watch YouTube vids first to see em on other ppl before purchasing but then I get em n don't rock em ppl say the same thing..."it's nice wear that out!!" But I be nervous

  • Lovezoe

    Posted it below

  • Buttercup

    Unfortunately, I've learned from experience. I can think of at least 2 occasions my head has been looking rough and my boo at the time just handed me money to get my hair done.

  • puppylove

    That's not what you said, but, carry on.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    true no one likes to lose, but to lose against blacks in an industry who tried to keep them out.. has to hurt more than losing against another white millionaire

  • Carolina Blue

    Ohhh....well school me sis. I don't know anything about it.

  • Darkandlovely617?
  • Carolina Blue

    Fancy.

  • Just An Observation

  • Prettybootnikki

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I wish i could!

  • Lovezoe

    Super easy. If I can do it, you can.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    her collection is dirt cheap now...its mixed though.; especiallyyours.com

  • Darkandlovely617?

    thank you!

  • Lovezoe

    Some wigs are thin, when you make your own, you can add as much or little hair as possible.

  • Lovezoe

    It's butter.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I'll pass, I am trying to muster up the strentgh to bleach this frontal when i take it out.. ***goes to fedex to drop hair off to you so you can make me one ;-)

  • Lovezoe

  • Darkandlovely617?

    thank you in advance!

  • Yoni7

    That's what his speech was about?

  • Yoni7

    OH! Taraji felt his vibe and didn't want any parts of it.

  • Wreckognize Game

    It's possible that Jimmy Kimmel had something to do with Warren Beatty having the duplicate best actress envelope. He is famous for practical jokes and I wouldn't be surprised.

  • Luvn_it

    Sh!t I can actually believe it b/c some of those other guys gave way better performances especially Denzel.?

  • Branch Davidian

    I am so happy Moonlight won. Bruce Willis and Cybill Shephard are my favorites!!!

  • Luvn_it

    He shouldn't have been nominated period. I have never ever been the type of person to yell out white privilege, but there's a first time for everything.

  • Wreckognize Game

    ???

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Lolll

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't think that's the same Moonlight.

  • DramaFreeZone

    Good!!!! ???

  • stanley

    Lauren London gained weight, and EJ is embarrassing lol

  • what?why

    Reason: their political views are arrogant, unintelligent,way out of bounds. Celebs are entertainers - nothing more, nothing less.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    ROFL!!
    *Sings* "Some walk byyy niiiiigggghhhhtttt..."

  • tynamight

    Viola looked so delightful that night. I refuse to get over her chocolate skin and perfect smile. That's my girl!

  • tynamight

    What??? Only 80s babies will get the joke. :)
