While presenting the award for "Best Film Editing" at the Academy Awards this year, African-American auteur Tyler Perry joked that it would be the only time he’ll hear his name at the Oscars. It seems the Academy doesn't appreciate the genius of a black man dressed up as an old black woman. But perhaps they will be made to.
