The acclaimed biopic “ Judas and the Black Messiah ” did well at the 2021 Oscar nomination ceremony and won no less than six nominations.
The feature film competes in the categories of Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Original Song for “Fight For You”.
The winners will be announced on April 25.
Starring Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya (‘Run!’, ‘Black Panther’), the film also stars LaKeith Stanfield (‘Atlanta’, ‘Brute Jewels’) as William O’Neal, Dominique Fishback (‘Iron Heart’) and Jesse Plemons (‘Breaking Bad’).
With the help of a criminal named William O’Neal, the FBI invests in the attempt to silence Hampton and the Black Panther Party. But they failed to kill the legacy of Fred Hampton. 50 years later, his words still resonate … louder than ever.
Although his life was interrupted, the impact of Fred Hampton continued to reverberate. The government saw the Black Panthers as a militant threat against the status quo and sold this lie to a frightened public at a time of growing civil unrest. But the perception of the Panthers did not correspond to reality. In downtown America, they provided free breakfast for children, legal services, medical clinics and sickle cell research and political education. And it was President Fred of Chicago who, recognizing the power of multicultural unity for a common cause, created the Rainbow Coalition – joining forces with other oppressed people in the city to fight for equality and l political empowerment.
