Oscars 2008: So Forest Fed Her Some Greens?

Keisha Whitaker was looking way less hungry tonight (seriously) on the Oscars red carpet:
Photogs: AP/Vespa 
That eat-nan-a-piece-of-foood diet is not what's hot in the streets.  Fabulous dress and she looked even more fabulous in it.  Heavy bronzer and all.  And her hubby Forest looked quite dapper himself in a custom-made tuxedo by Domenico Vacca.  And he rocked over $100k in diamonds: Kwiat Platinum, Diamond, and Onyx Cufflinks and a Chris Aire Platinum, Diamond, and Red Gold Traveler Watch.  Nice. OSCAR UPDATE: Ruby Dee did not win for Best Supporting Actress tonight.  Damn.

Thank you for keeping it

Thank you for keeping it real. We are not supposed to support people kiilling them selves to look like an ideal that is not healthy. I have enought problems teaching a high school popluation that thinks that looking and acting like a video hoe( some mans standard of a women)to know that you can eat and still be beautiful.

Co-sign Desiree & what does

Co-sign Desiree & what does low self esteem have to do with being naturally thin?? Apparently it's okay to bash thin people but wrong to attack people who are overweight, unhealthy and killing themselves in the process???? Puh-lease! lol!

I think she looks really po'

I think she looks really po' and sunken-in. That's not a good look, and it SCREAMS low self-esteem to me. I don't know why her dress gets such rave reviews-- I've seen it 1000 times in pageants.

So what if she's skinny? Not

So what if she's skinny? Not everyone needs to be "thick" AKA "fat". Some people are just naturally thin (i.e. me) and we don't need to justify what and how much we eat. I think she looks great.

She looks really bad. Makes me want to go grab something to eat...even though I'm not even hungry.

Why does every black woman on

Why does every black woman on this site hate on thin girls? She is healthy and she doesn't have an eating disorder. Being less than 5'9 and wieghing 140 is unhealthy. Go ask your doctor. i understand that most black women are overwieght but that doesnt mean you can bash a beautiful woman for being thin with a small waist and being light skinned. Youre all obviouly insecure since you have tummy bulges rolls and a gym membership that never gets used. if you are 5'7-5'9 it is healthy to wieght between 110 and 140. if you are 5'0-5'5 125 is pushing it. God you people need med school

I agree, they didn't deserve

I agree, they didn't deserve an Oscar, and Ruby Dee has like 3 lines....that's not oscar worthy. It's about the role you got nominated for, not your lifetime achievement, not because you are black or a woman, not because your old and its about time.... But on the flip side, J Hudson shouldn't have won an oscar either. She simply didn't deserve it.

I'll agree with you writer

I'll agree with you writer chick. That's why they gave Martin Scorscaecy ( i know thats spelled wrong) for the departed. That was not some of his best work but he was long overdue for one. Same with Denzel, his role as a "villian" in training day was nowhere near as good as his role in american gangster. He should've taken it home for Malcom X, but thats how the ball bounces i guess.

keisha is not cute! I guess

keisha is not cute! I guess pale and thin mean cute to most black men but she just looks pale, cold, and uncomfortable. Not sexy. Not attractive. No thank you

I had the privilege to meet

I had the privilege to meet her at a pre-oscar party last week, and she is truly a phenomnal woman. If her nomination was based soley on the entire scope of her career, then I would say yes she is more then deserving of the award. While, her supporting role in American Gangster may not have been as "Oscar-worthy," as others I think she is long overdue for one. She should have gotten one for A Raisin In The Sun.

So let me get this straight,

So let me get this straight, i voice my opinion as to why i dont think ruby dee deserved the oscar and not to mention praised her in the same sentence, and "i'm hating on black women". But most of the black women on here are clownin on Forest Whitikers wife and they get a pass. Wow i have to go back to my book of slang and read the definition of hating one more time. Good looking out Arianna, and yes Joe most of us men are alike stop tryna get points lmao.

Some people are just

Some people are just slim...whatever works for u..but the Star Jones neck thing on anyone creeps me out.... Oh, Ruby Dee's performance was not Oscar worthy..she had like 3 parts in the movie...I am still trying to figure that one out....and that's not hate, that's real.
Chica's picture

You know, people kil me. When

You know, people kil me. When a celeb is thin, they're "too thin". Then when they gain some weight (ie Megan Goode), they are pregnant and/or need to lose weight. Why can't we just celebrate beauty no matter the package it comes in? Jennifer Hudson is too fleshy and Keisha is too thin. Gimme a break...let's just celebrate beauty and not the damn weight on a scale.

Well I liked Ruby's

Well I liked Ruby's performance, and there have been instances where people have won Academy Awards for five minute appearances in films. But to move on, I was hoping Raise It Up the song from the movie August Rush would win the song Oscar, but no such luck. The little girl Jamia Nash killed it on stage though!!!

U know some people are just

U know some people are just naturally skinny. Don't see what the big deal is with Keisha's size. I'm sure she eats just fine. As you can tell Forrest doesn't look like he misses too many meals. As far as Ruby Dee, she has a body of excellent work and sometimes actors get nominated for just that. Halle Berry and Denzel should have had Oscars for "Losing Isaiah" and "Malcolm X" but they didn't get it til much later. That's just the way Hollywood rolls sometimes when it comes to black folk...sadly

I honestly felt that the other nominees in that category gave more powerful/riveting performances (I watched all the nominated films). How many of you can honestly say that you were rooting for her because you thought she was the best and not because she's black. I do that sometimes I have to admit (e.g always rooting for the black athlete/contestant on a reality show etc. etc.) which is fine in the sense that we gotta support our own- but I think that too often we are blinded by color and I try to hold myself up to the same standards that I would others.[/quote] Why is it that when your blk and you support a blk person, blk people ALWAYS say you support them becuase there blk? Why is the same thing not applied to white people?

She is less than a size ZERO

She is less than a size ZERO and that is whoefully unhealthy for a female who is at least 5'9" in height. She needs an intervention, placement in an eating disorders unit. Plain and simple.

Her dress is nice,

Her dress is nice, actually... so what if she's skinny... the point is... you work with what you have. You dress appropriately and step out with confidence. Ruby Dee deserved it... but I guess it wasn't her year... let's hope for the next one...

@Sanna. No hatin love, just

@Sanna. No hatin love, just telling it like it is. I can see if i was disrespecting and/ or degrading them then you could say that. I think alot of times we as black people soley look at things one sided. If anyone from that movie should have been nominated, it should have been Denzel. I'd give him the oscar for AG before Training Day. I'm salute what they are doing for our people, especially young black women, but the oscars is not based on that. If that where the case than yeah, give them (jennifer hudson, ruby dee)the award

I was upset when Ruby Dee

I was upset when Ruby Dee didn't win what she was truly deserving of. However, I know that her life, her legacy, and her work will continue to illustrate what true class, talent, and integrity represents. Hollywood can snub her on the Oscar, but they can not deny the doors she has opened nor the influence she has had on the performing arts.
