POP INSOMNIACS

We work the entertainment nightshift watching the shows you watch, reading the books you read, listening to the music you listen to. Our opinions are our own, but they also reign supreme. Thwart us and feel our wrath.

Only 4 black actors have ever won an Academy Award in the Best Lead Actor category. Sidney Poitier won in 1963 for Lilies of the Field. Denzel Washington won in 2001 for Training Day. Jamie Foxx won for portraying Ray Charles in 2004. And Forest Whitaker won in 2006 for portraying Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in Last King of Scotland.
