"Comes from a musical theater background. And i'm sure a lot of people know this but he writes with a kind of like a metronome to it and there is a way in which it is written. And if you if you can see it you know just how he wants you to say so. I loved it and i don't i don't know why he hasn't called since so i mean i guess just one other quick follow up about that is like he's often taking some shit that people think he has not ridden female characters as well as males. Did you mean it seems like it was a pretty great one. Like allison janney in the west like we can come up with quite a have. A lot of actresses would probably lineup to sort of speak against that claim. Because if you if you're an actress working in this town the number of times you you have a dearth of not only anything of any value to say or do but like a just this. That's never the case with aaron. And that's why all everybody wants to work with him. So twenty two episodes you get a golden globe nomination. It is a Ah show that a lot of people really passionately loved. And then they buy just the ratings were just never what. Nbc hope for and they pull the plug after all this buildup and how big a deal.

I mean i was on an errand can show playing one of the female leads. I was nominated for a golden globe and then it was like crickets in terms of you know i had to fight to get the female lead in cupid. I remember i had really short cut my hair off. They made me put extensions in. They made me bleach my hair. There was this. Like you know. Weird time where i felt kind of like. I don't know.

"So you know, we are talking in the mist of yet another award season. A season in which your latest film the five Bloods is getting a lot of buzz and some nominations, But already people are saying in some regards it's getting snapped like no Golden Globe nominations for you. Yes, this thing I keep seeing with you and you're working your art in the coverage of it. Is that besides making films that really speak to who and what America really is. There is this constant discussion over whether or not you and your work Get their due. Are you tired of that conversation? Do you listen to that conversation? Well, I don't listen to that, you know. I did at one point, but that that is just going down hole. I mean, I just look at do the right thing, you know? Consider American Classic on all accounts, you know, that wasn't even nominated for best picture driving. Miss Daisy. One, got two nominations. Denny Adal for Sound lost out the dense off for glory. And I had I got original screenplay. So we know what film one Best picture and no one's watching that film. I mean, very few people watching that film today, but also in retrospect, the voting Members of the carry motion picture Arts sciences is more diverse now than it was back in the day. Do you think it's there? Do you think it's reached the point where it needs to be when you talk about the academy membership? No, I mean is better than it was, But it's not. It's not Look, everything's the process was not You like me to snap your fingers overnight because of hashtag Oscarssowhite. But that has tag made the academy you know, make changes, which I commend them for, and It. Open it up for People color to be members, Academy and vote are you Thinking ahead to whether or not Five Bloods is going to get some Oscar nuts this year. Look, you know that's out of my hands. And I've had five before the film was streamed on. Netflix had five screenings for Black and Puerto Rican Vietnam vets. I mean, that's why I made the film for you know, and they loved it so I'm at peace with that. Yeah. You sound like someone who does not do The song and dance that other folks might do in the awards show. Well, I mean, I had outburst for when black clansmen so I'm not That was it Wasn't that Fact that black clams and didn't win. It was The film that one And they had drivers Daisy flashbacks with film that won, and we should say the film that won that year when black plans and was also up for Oscar's was Green Book. Yep. What is the deal with those kind of movies continuing to be made from driving Miss Daisy two Green book? This like Children's book, Sanitation of Race. Why is the industry still letting that stuff happen and giving it awards? Here's a things racism permeates. Every inch of American society. So why should Hollywood be exempt from it? Let's talk about the five plots. So this movie is all about black Vietnam veterans. Going back to Vietnam Present day in the original script. The soldiers were white. You've made movies with white leaders. 11. The group was a black guy. Okay, okay, but the majority were white. Um, talk about the choice to make all the soldiers black. And how difficult the process was to rewrite it In that way. Oh, well, we wrote with Kevin Wilmont. Kevin, I. We had no problem. Yeah, with the change. Okay. Black it up. Yeah, And when we got the script from the producer Lloyd 11 Kevin. I automatically knew that What we need to do. And there's a given opportunity to Ah Hello. The story of the black effort, the Bloods. Before, and Dina Vietnam in a very moral war. I don't think people know. That black soldiers were overrepresented in Vietnam. You know they were at that point. Blacks were about 11% of the population at that time. Represented more than 20% of all combat troops in Vietnam were my numbers. Say it the height my numbers say at the height of the Vietnam War was almost 30%. Wow! And at least a quarter of all U. S combat deaths were black soldiers. Real real index. We all index and everything. The fact is that the majority of films a double Vietnam, the black experience was not a part of the story. That's Of course, you would think that I would like that. But that wasn't the case. That's not the story. They wanted to tell this simple. Yeah. Well, I like how in the film the five blood, You kind of poke a little fun at that. There's a little line where Characters or ragging on Rambo. And saying that the Hollywood always tries to go back and win Vietnam. What do you mean? When you have your characters say that Hollywood always tries to go back and win Vietnam? Because his revisionist history United States of America. The biggest and baddest Strongest. Country. In the world. Got the ass kicked by the vehicle. Before that they afford the Chinese before that. You know, and they kicked France's ass so I mean, all the might we have all the bombs. You dropped the napalm all that stuff and we still lost. Speaking of things in your movies that folks Maybe did not know before They saw your movie who had? No, I had him. Well, that was very interesting. Actually talk about that for a second because I didn't know that if this is all Did a film called Miracle ST. Anna. About the Buffalo soldiers that 92nd Division of foot. In Italy landed in Italy without the boot. Fight against Mussolini's fascist army and then later on to Germany against Hitler's Nazis. In that film. We had a scene a woman called Access selling back. She was born in Cincinnati, but she was American who's in Nazi Germany. Who will be on the radio plain Popular American music and in between the music is she would talk with soldiers, you know about propaganda at the same time. In the Pacific Theater. The Japanese have a counterpart. Her name was Tokyo. Rose. She was she was doing the same thing. You look it up and soon the Vietnam War. There was annoyed handoff. And again, she would play popular American music, rock and Roll's soul and in between songs she was given script to read. Even though some people might say is propaganda, a lot of stuff. She said, was not alive. You know, she says, Why are you dying for a country That doesn't love you? A lot of the black soldiers. That's how they heard about two or three days later. That in okay, man assassinated. That's how they found out. Wow. And she used that same why you don't you know that your sister and brothers air riding burning or 100 cities in America and they're being killed by the police. Yeah. You know, that was something saner film that I did not know. I think about now. What did happen in the film, but no was a reality. But I don't think I think about enough. Is that you have, you know Della Window playing a character who was a black Vietnam veteran who was also a trump supporter. And I'm realizing we know at this point that there are people of color who supported Trump, at least like a one in 10. Black men who voted in 2016 voted for trump even higher numbers of Latino men. And I realized watching Delroy Lindo in this role..

Kevin Wilmont Cincinnati 2016 Trump Kevin Netflix Vietnam War Hitler Lloyd 11 Kevin Italy trump United States of America Delroy Lindo five plots Mussolini 100 cities Hollywood 10 Della Window Miracle ST. Anna
