I will NEVER understand why the Motion Picture Academy shut out this magnificent movie when it came time for handing out trophies. They both gave some of the BEST performances of the 1980s. Oprah is actually a WONDERFUL actress, and I will definitely be watching this episode–or TIVOing it!!!

I LOVE her, and still want her to adopt me, even though I am a grown-assed man! LOL! Log in to Reply marknsprmo November 12, 2010 The Color Purple is also my favorite movie of all time. I have never understood it’s neglect by the academy. The talk back then was it’s misogynistic view of men……. one that men of that time actually was deserved. Besides not all the men in the Color Purple were misogynists. Harpo and Shugs husband and Shug’s father were all decent men. My my 25 years! “Miss Sophia’s back!” Log in to Reply luverica November 12, 2010 I hope we find out why Whoopi wasn’t at Oprah’s Legends Ball Weekend back in 2006. I’ve always wondered about that. CELIEEEEEE!!! NETTIEEEEE!!! Log in to Reply GHfan-4now November 12, 2010 Sofia to Celie: I loves Harpo, God knows I do. But I’ll KILL HIM DEAD ‘fo I let him beat me. Classic! Log in to Reply marknsprmo November 13, 2010 My favorite line is “It gonna rain on yo head,” as Harpo falls through the ceiling to the floor making a larger hole than when he started.It’s a line that comes in handy alot in life lol.
