Sterling K Brown wonders about merit of Oscars’ changes
Black Panther actor Sterling K. Brown is torn about the Academy Awards new popular film category.
At an event for This Is Us at Paramount Studios, Brown, who played N’Jobu in the Marvel blockbuster, told variety.com that his stance on the category — particularly as it relates to Black Panther, which is eligible for 2018 nominations — goes back and forth.
‘When I first heard of the category, the first question I had was, ‘What is the criterion for being nominated in this category?’ Brown said.
‘If it’s something that can give it some sort of merit and legitimacy, then I think it’s cool. But I think ‘Black Panther’ stands on its own merits regardless of its popularity as being a wonderful piece of art.’
‘Ryan Coogler is an artist,’ Brown continued. (IANS)
