  1. Daily wire is hiring! No woke BS included!

  2. NEVER HEARD OF HIM OR HOS MOVIE! Bye bye Hollywood 🍿

  3. Great actor and thanks for your insiighht. Everyone should check out “”Soound of Metal”. 😢

  4. Diversity? Is that what y’all call quotas and tokens?

  5. And the ratings for the Oscars keeps dropping like a rock because who cares if you can act anymore it’s what color your skin is.

  6. Diversity Hire

  7. The Hollywood creepazoids are eating their own 😀

  8. Very good actor. Haven’t seen this yet but so happy for his nomination. First saw him in ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, ‘The Night Of’ (very impressive in this role in which he was also nominated), ‘Jason Bourne and ‘The OA’ on Netflix.

    • @Gabe Dudley You should have stopped after the first sentence if you really admire someone else’s work. Just show appreciation, it goes a long way. Appreciation is not only showing gratitude, it also means making more of ( like stocks appreciate). Try it and you’ll have a fruitful life instead of a contentious one. Nothing good comes from picking another human apart.

    • @Susan Tang does it feel personal?

    • @Susan Tang Well said. 👏👏👏 Ignore the trolls.

    • @Gabe Dudley No, I feel appreciation.

    • @Susan Tang appreciate what? How how tough the rich have it? Yes keep thinking about hollywood.

    Riz is a talented actor so the reward for him is well deserved!

  19. What a looker!

  20. still a lot of haters out there it seems. ok awards should be judged purely on merit. however even among ‘white’ actors there is discrimination, due to politics and sexual orientation, influence with the right people etc.
