Having seen this film, I can say that other films were worthy of the win. I hate to say this but a little bit of racism played out here. Had this film not been chosen, there would have been mass outrage.

Give me a break. The film deserved the win. There was no racism involved.

Found this for $10 at Costco. Gotta get around to seeing this, to see if a
film about racism, deserved to have reverse-racism applied to it when it
wins the Oscar for Best Picture.

Think about this manner of racism these days, even when a minority
member succeeds now, that success is questioned as a sympathy vote,
lower standards, guilt campaign, or fraudulent voters.

Every year, it's fair to argue that some other film was better than Argo,
the Artist, King's Speech, Hurt Locker... but those films don't get accused
of winning because of playing the guilt-racist card.

Yeah, this kind of racism isn't as painful as the slave master's whip. Yay,
we have improved!
