"You Have To Be Trashy And Black To Get Nominated" - Michelle Rodriguez by anonymous6(f): 10:31am On Jun 19, 2012
“Avatar” star Michelle Rodriguez may have stepped in the proverbial hornet’s nest with some eyebrow-raising comments she made in France recently.

The outspoken actress was speaking to New York magazine's Vulture last week at an amfAR event when she offered her take on Lee Daniels’ new film “The Paperboy.”

To the question of whether one of the film’s stars, Nicole Kidman, could potentially earn an Oscar for her controversial turn in the flick (she "pees" on co-star Zac Efron in one scene) Rodriguez promptly shot the possibility down. Her reason? Kidman's neither “black” nor “trashy.”

"One of my friends said, 'She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar for that,’” Rodriguez said of the buzzed-about film. “I was like, 'Nah, man. She’s not black!'"

"I laugh, but it’s also very sad," she added. "It makes me want to cry. But I really believe. You have to be trashy and black to get nominated. You can’t just be trashy."

Blacks are hardly ever nominated, talkless of winning. Halle Berry is the only Black woman to win Best Actress, and that was just in 2001. Either she's jealous or she's loony.
