When it comes to great films, I think it’s important for them to have a soundtrack that represents the film’s theme so effortlessly. The films that I’ve chosen are guaranteed to be among the list of many movie/music lovers when it comes to favorite soundtracks. Simply put…these soundtracks will never go out of style.

When Viola Davis accepted her Oscar Sunday night for ‘Best Supporting Actress’  for her role in fences, she actually made history!

Ms. Davis has become a part of what the industry calls the “triple crown club”. She has won an Emmy, a Tony, and an Oscar, making her the first black artist to do so.

Via NME:

By winning the Best Supporting Actress award at last night’s Oscars for her performance in Fences, Viola Davis made history.

The actress added an Academy Award to her Emmy (which she won in 2015 for her performance in TV’s How To Get Away With Murder) and her two Tonys (for King Hedley II in 2001 and Fences in 2010) to complete the so-called “triple crown of acting”.

Davis is the first black woman to achieve this impressive accolade. Though Whoopi Goldberg has also won an Emmy, an Oscar and a Tony (as well as a Grammy – making her an ‘EGOT’ winner), neither her Emmy nor her Tony was won for acting.

Davis becomes the 23rd person ever to complete the ‘triple crown of acting’. Other stars to have achieved the accolade include Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Frances McDormand.

 

 

Actor and filmmaker, Nate Parker, deserves a gold star!

The accomplished actor and director of ‘Birth of a Nation, will launch The Nate Parker School of Film and Drama in the Fall of 2016. It will institutionalize at Wiley College in Texas.
