You Must Watch Franchesca Ramsey’s Hilarious Oscar Nominee Nail Tutorial
In the midst of the very serious discussion about race in Hollywood happening all over the internet stemming from this year’s Oscar nominations, somehow Franchesca Ramsey has found a way to infuse humor into the situation.
Following the Academy’s announcement late last week and the resulting resurgence of the #OscarsSoWhite trending topic, the comedian took to YouTube to create a Oscar Nominee Nail Tutorial in which she used varying shades of white to paint her nails, stating each color represented a different nominee, from Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to Mark Ruffalo and Matt Damon. After showing finished product and adding “a top coat of clear because, clearly, the Academy needs to do better,” Franchesca poignantly stated:
“As you can see it’s both traditional, predictable, safe, and yet grossly disappointing. If you were looking for diversity and representation this year, you are sorely out of luck.”
Well at least Franchesca didn’t disappoint.
