Lakeith Stanfield Posts & Deletes That "No One Cares" About The Oscars

He may be nominated at this year's ceremony, but Lakeith Stanfield doesn't seem concerned with the Academy Awards. The celebrated actor received a nod in the Best Supporting Actor category—an inclusion that he shares with his Judas and the Black Messiah co-star, Daniel Kaluuya—and recently, Stanfield emphasized that there are more pressing issues going on in the world than award season.

The Oscars are one of the most coveted awards in the entertainment industry, but not everyone places The Academy on a pedestal. In a quick post-and-delete move, Lakeith reportedly shared a screenshot of a Deadline article that spoke about the Oscars changing their in-person policy and possibly opening the ceremony up to Zoom. The Academy received backlash for reportedly stating that attendees were required to meet at the scheduled venue.

"No one cares lmao," the actor wrote in the caption. "Real stuff is happening. Who cares about awards." Previously, there was also a bit of confusion surrounding Stanfield's nomination this year as people quickly noticed that both he and Kaluuya were lead actors in Judas and the Black Messiah, but The Academy didn't give either actor a lead role nod and instead, placed them in the supporting category.

Addressing the controversy, Stanfield previously stated, "I'm confused too but f*ck it lmao."

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
