Whether it was gangster rap making it to the cover of Rolling Stone or one entrepreneur from Brooklyn moving more like a mogul than a rapper, there are a handful of movements since the advent of hip-hop that have completely shifted the landscape of mainstream culture. Let’s explore those groundbreaking instances now with The Most Important Moments in The Tanning of America. Who would’ve thought that hip-hop could take it this far?

We already heard from Joe La Puma of Complex Media, Rafi D’Angelo of SoLetsTalkAbout.com, Hot 97′s Miss Info, MTV’s Rob Markman, and REVOLT TV’s Sharon Carpenter.

Every year, there are always one or two Oscars snubs (and upsets) that really hurt. In years past, it was Argo‘s Ben Affleck not getting nominated for Best Director, Sidney Poitier for In the Heat of the Night, or Jimmy Stewart’s emotional turn in Vertigo. This year, it was Oprah Winfrey‘s riveting performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Say what you will about the film, but there was no discounting Winfrey’s turn as Gloria Gaines. She carried the film but, sadly, could not do enough to earn the movie a single nomination at this year’s Academy Awards.
But that’s where we come in. With Oprah out for The Butler, we decided to recast her in several of this year’s Oscar-nominated films. Damn the Academy! If they don’t want to recognize her for that role, then we’ll put in everything and see if they can get away with it. Because let’s face it: Every movie is made better with Oprah in it.
