Community, Memes, and American: First Black Oscar Award Winner, Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic @balleralert First Black Oscar Award Winner Hattie McDaniel Gets A Biopic – blogged By @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, a biopic for African American and Hollywood pioneer, HattieMcDaniel is now in the works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those of us who’ve slept on black history- McDaniel was the first African American (man or woman) to receive an Oscar. Her role as “Mammy” in the film “Gone With The Wind” earned her the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actress” in 1940. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the film’s success and eight Oscar Awards, McDaniel, along with the rest of her black castmates weren’t allowed at the premiere of the film in Georgia. The color of her skin also caused for McDaniel to not be allowed to sit with the rest of the nominated cast at the Oscar Awards, but allowed her a seat in the back of the venue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Variety, producers of the film, AaronMagnani and AlysiaAllen got their hands on the rights to Jill Watts’ published biography, “Hattie McDaniel: Black Ambition, White Hollywood” to help them with the film. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though people in the black community criticized her for playing roles that they felt fed into racial stereotypes for African Americans, McDaniel served as a pioneer and example for aspiring African American actors and actresses for generations to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Considering the fact that the first black man to receive a golden globe for best actor in a TV series happened just a week ago, this biopic is a big deal, and long overdue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Continue to rest in peace Ms. McDaniel and congratulations.

Basketball, Family, and Friday: Lavar Ball's Son, LiAngelo, Released on Bail After Shoplifting Arrest in China; Could Face 3-10 Years in Prison, If Convicted @balleralert Lavar Ball’s Son, LiAngelo, Released on Bail After Shoplifting Arrest in China; Could Face 3-10 Years in Prison, If Convicted – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, LavarBall’s middle son, LiAngeloBall was arrested in mainland China on suspicion of shoplifting. Under standard practices, according to Yahoo, Ball, along with the three other UCLA basketball players, could face between three and 10 years in prison, if convicted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officials say the three players, including freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were caught stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team’s hotel in Hangzhou. The team had been staying at the Hyatt Regency in preparation for their game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai later this week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After officials questioned players from both teams, Ball, Riley, and Hill were taken into custody. Hours later, the three were released on bail and ordered to remain in their hotel until the legal battle was resolved. As a result, they will not suit up on Friday against Georgia Tech. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China,” UCLA said in a statement. “The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ball’s father spoke to reporters as well, revealing that his son will be fine when the legal issues are settled. But, as for details on the case, he was advised to remain mum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Everybody making it a big deal. It isn’t that big of a deal,” he said. In a later released statement, he added, “It is a very unfortunate situation that the Ball family and UCLA has to deal with at this particular time. We will comment shortly.”
