Lee Daniel’s ‘The Butler’ Considered For Oscar, But Is It Really Worthy?

The current chatter among  the Hollywood elite, is that The Butler will be considered for an Oscar nomination, based on the success of the film over the weekend. Lee Daniels and Forrest Whitaker did an amazing job so I hear.  BUT, are we tired of black movies only being considered for an Academy Award when we are servants, whores or the bad guy? With all of African American films being created and submitted to film festivals all over the world of all genres, why are most films depicting blacks in a subservient capacity Oscar worthy? Look at the recent success and accolades for films such as The Help & Precious, (also directed by Daniels), where the main characters are either under privileged, uneducated, undesirable, or under servitude.  What about other films that was deserving of Oscar nods but never received recognition, such as Rosewood ( directed by  John Singleton) or Malcolm X (Spike Lee)  or the hundreds of thousands of other young black directors that we don’t hear about? Even with all the power of what Tyler Perry has possessed over the last 10 years, what films out of his camp was even taken seriously by mainstream Hollywood for a Oscar win?
