Summary

It not only would have been a historical victory (in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards, only three Asian actors have won — the last time in 1985), but above all it would have been so well deserved. She is widely considered the first Chinese-American movie star, but was mistreated — most notably when she should have been cast as O-Lan, the Chinese lead of The Good Earth, but was passed over by the studio in favor of Luise Rainer, who played the part in yellowface."—annakatherine001"The woman is incredible, a great actor.
