Michelle Rodriguez says you have to be 'trashy and black' to win an Oscar

tbd-michellerodriguez053112.jpgIf you were once a cast member on Lost, it's apparently the week for you to say the first thing that pops into your head. That's why Michelle Rodriguez brought plenty of attention to herself by talking a bit too much about the Oscars and Hollywood's reaction to Lee Daniels' movie The Paperboy -- specifically, how Nicole Kidman urinates on Zac Efron and has an orgasm. It's a family movie, you know.

"I f---ing loved it," Rodriguez told Vulture. "One of my friends said, 'She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar for that.' I was like, 'Nah, man. She’s not black!' I laugh, but it’s also very sad. It makes me want to cry. But I really believe. You have to be trashy and black to get nominated. You can’t just be trashy."

That certainly sounds like someone who knows what she's talking about, don't it? Then again, the only reason she's been in the news outside her DUIs is because she's been rumored to be having a lesbian relationship and mysteriously morphed from the creepy tomboy actress in things Girlfight and Resident Evil into the hot actress who stars in billion-dollar movies like Avatar, so who's making the better decisions here? It's not like white people ever win Oscars, anyway.
