Favorite Oscar nominated biopic: 'Harriet' or 'Judy'?
"Harriet" depicts Harriet Tubman as you have never seen her before. Most of us know the story of the woman who freed slaves from elementary school. But what you don't know is that she was married twice, her father was a free man and many of the quotes attributed to her were false.
Judy Garland was a force and many call the singer a gay icon. But despite her success as a performer, some consider the artist problematic because in her early days she performed in blackface. But let's be honest, whether you love her or hate her, a story this controversial makes for a great film.
