Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Spike Lee’s decision to boycott the Oscar’s this year due to the lack of African-Americans nominated for awards in the past two award shows. The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite is becoming very popular these days.
It still blows my mind that they would chose a host (Chris Rock) of an ethnicity not represented at the show. Like, how does that make any sense?!
In light if this, I can’t wait to hear his opening monologue.
Because of Jada Pinkett Smith’s bold move in making the video about the subject over on Facebook, I decided to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to her. This sketch was done by Greg Hand, inspired by Pinkett’s character Fish Mooney on Gotham. Her stern lip is just the right amount of fierce.
