Sunday is the big day! And while we won't hate on the current Oscar nominees (The Social Network, Black Swan, and Inception are dope), we'd like to file a grievance with the Academy for ignoring, or robbing a few black actors & actresses their just due during Oscar season.
They may not always have the lead roles in the films they're in, but they definitely always steal our attention when they waltz across the screen and stay in our minds long after the movie is over. Quietly brilliant, they are the underrated stars in the little universe known as Hollywood.
