12 Years a Slave Ruined My Mandela Biopic, Says Screenwriter

Anita Singh, Telegraph (London), May 31, 2014

The British screenwriter of last year’s Nelson Mandela biopic has complained that Oscar voters ignored his film because “12 Years a Slave sucked up all the guilt about black people”.

William Nicholson said he was devastated by the critical and commercial disappointment of Nelson Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, which starred Idris Elba as the South African leader.

Nicholson, 66, has been Oscar-nominated twice before, for Gladiator and Shadowlands, and said he had been certain that the Mandela biopic would be similarly successful.

He had spent 15 years working on it, producing 33 drafts before the final version was approved.

“I think it worked superbly. I’m incredibly proud of this film. Unfortunately it didn’t get the kind of acclaim that I wanted. It didn’t get Oscars.

12 Years a Slave came out in America and that sucked up all the guilt about black people that was available.

“They were so exhausted feeling guilty about slavery that I don’t think there was much left over to be nice about our film. So our film didn’t do as well as we’d hoped, which was a bit heartbreaking,” Nicholson told an audience at the Hay Festival.

“We showed it to test audiences very extensively and it got astounding responses. These things are measured in percentages and it was in the high 90s every time. So, honestly, we thought we had a winner. And when it didn’t become a winner it was devastating, actually, it was very distressing.

“I really thought it was going to win lots of awards, partly because it’s a good story but also because I thought I’d done a really good job and the director had done a really good job. So it has been very tough for me. Some things work and some things don’t. You just have to soldier on.”

Mandela died in December last year–on the night that the film had its royal premiere in London, attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Nicholson said the death also affected the film’s reception.

He explained: “Mandela died as I was in the royal premiere with Will and Kate. Suddenly the word came through that he died. We were deluged with Mandela stuff and after a week we all thought, please, take it away, we’ve heard enough about Mandela.

When the Hay interviewer joked that the festival should give out film awards, Nicholson replied: “They’d only give it to 12 Years a Slave.”

He discussed the process of writing the biopic, disclosing that he had invented most of Mandela’s speeches in the film because the real thing was too dull.

“All but one of the speeches were made up by me because his own speeches are so boring. I know it sounds outrageous to say a thing like that, but when he came out of prison he made a speech and, God, you fell asleep.

“It’s a sadness. In all the speeches there’s always a good line, but they’re not very good.”

Nicholson is also a novelist, and said writing books would always be his first love.

He explained: “I write movies, which I love, but I do it for the money. My real passion is for books.

“But long-form television is like the novel now–Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, something like that. So for the first time I’m embarking on a TV series.

“I’ve written the first episode. I don’t know if it will happen, but if it happens it will be a great excitement for me.

“People view things differently now, they tend to view in box set and soon it’ll be streaming on demand so that you can watch at your own pace. I can write a 26-part TV series like a novel and that is intensely exciting.

“It may be that in a few years’ time my enormously successful TV series will be dominating the airwaves.”

    Sour grapes, crybaby. “Mommy gave my brother more cookies than she gave me.”

    • M.Magog

      I detest John Waters movies

      • Lagerstrom

        Same here my son.

  • Herman

    Mandela was from South Africa.

    Slavery ended 150 years ago.

    And I should feel “guilt about black people”?

    Not going to happen.

    • BillMillerTime

      You got that right, Jack. They were handed a first-world country and the bloody kaffirs are letting it go down the tubes.

      • TruthBeTold

        ‘Letting it go down the tubes’ implies they have the capacity to not let it go down the tubes.

        They just don’t have the capacity to maintain let alone advance civilization.

        Their only hope is to attach themselves to whites and drain them of their productivity.

        Blacks have been handed pre-built cities and nations and the downward progression is always the same.

        Without whites they succumb to their own nature.

    • Dr. Blooknok

      South Africa was build by white settlers and became a propitious nation, they did not take the land away from the Blacks. The blacks immigrated to south Africa in droves and were given a better life than they had in their own black ruled countries.
      The whites wanted to be their own people ( no integration) but they became a minority.
      The communists with the likes of the swine Mandela a terrorist wanted majority rule and an end of apartheid. In 1994 the Blacks got their wish and south Africa demise began by the Blacks who continue to show that they cannot run anything but into the ground.
      Now the South Africana and the Boers are being murdered by the Blacks.

  • DaveMed

    Hahaha!

    But on a more somber note… there is, unfortunately, a lot more where that came from, Mr. Nicholson.

  • TruthBeTold

    He let the cat out of the bag and exposed what’s really going on.

    These movies are nothing but guilt-inducing propaganda and the studios, writers, directors, and producers know what they’re doing.

  • Jesse James

    I don’t know anyone that watched 12 Years a Slave or at least not anyone who will admit it to me. That white guilt scam is about played out like gypsies spraying oil on your shingle roof and charging you for replacing it or important Nigerian diplomats trying to get money out of their country and desperately requiring your assistance. You are boring us to tears progressive termites, come up with a new angle or just keep your insanity and self hatred to yourselves.

    • Zimriel

      I knew one person who saw it and liked it. She was ‘Mexican’ but, really, a Spaniard.

      Latinos have the white-guilt bug too, maybe even more than we do. Which is why Mexico is the way it is: talking a big game about “la raza cosmica” but staying FAR from the barrio.

      • bilderbuster

        Mexican’s have White guilt too?
        Give me a break please.
        It would be funny if it were true though because I’ve never had any.

        • Zimriel

          The high-caste Hispanics get it when they come here; they transfer it to how bad Anglos are…

          Back there, they push the guilt down to the back of their heads. It manifests itself differently. But it’s still there.

          • bilderbuster

            I could care less about all of the funny little thoughts Mexicans have running through their funny looking Mestizo heads.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Mexican should feel guilty about how they’ve wrecked their land and for the drug trade murders. So much for their religion.

          • bilderbuster

            They are guilty of that but their little Mestizo consciences don’t seemed to be bothered by it.
            It’s not stopping them from destroying our nation or feeling any remorse for doing what comes natural to them.

  • [Guest]

    Let’s hope that white people’s feelings of guilt concerning blacks gets sucked up—and soon.

  • David Ashton

    Sooooooooo sad.

  • Garrett Brown

    Hoping for success and money off the backs of white libtards feeling guilty? What’s funny is this scum admits it openly and proudly.

    • bilderbuster

      And all of “Mandela’s” stirring speeches in the film are total fiction and most likely much more is too.
      And for showing up at the premiere to promote this anti White hate flick the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge should either abdicate or be removed from the throne and given an old fashioned “French Haircut”.

      • Garrett Brown

        Never watched the garbage, never will. I wouldn’t know.

        • bilderbuster

          I’ll never watch that garbage either but I did read the article and Nicholson was quoted as having said that.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    First of all, Africans sold their fellow Africans into slavery. Second, Europeans weren’t even the largest users of black slave labor. It was the Muslim Arabs. Why don’t you have negroes asking the Arabs to feel guilty? Probably because there’s no money or gibsmuhdat in it.

    • M.

      Oh yeah, and the Muslim one had a lot of action too. Hollywood could make a way better action movie with the 9th-century Negro Rebellion alone. That’s where nearly half a million Bantu slaves revolted and savagely butchered their Arab masters. Google “Zanj Rebellion”.

    • Harry

      Don’t expect any Muslim Arabs to feel guilty about slavery, terrorism and 9-11, that women cannot drive, women are the property of their husbands or fathers, and thieves get their hands chopped off in Saudi Arabia, for honor killings, or for how the Koran advocates killing Christians, Jews, atheists, and other “infidels’ who refuse to convert to Islam!

  • ncpride

    “12 Years a Slave sucked up all the guilt about black people”…..

    We can only hope. I had a friend tell me just this weekend she had this movies and was going to watch it. I flat out told her I had no interest in watching the movie, as I’m sure they portray White people in the worst possible light and half of it was more than likely pure fiction anyway. The look on her face was funny and she quickly changed the subject, but at least she knows how I feel about it. Her son and mine are best buddies, but I think she knows better than to bring up the race issue……because I refuse to be fake, and she may just hear some uncomfortable truths from me.

    • TruthBeTold

      I keep hoping they run out of ‘past injustices’ to exploit but they always seem to dig up new ones.

      • JohnEngelman

        After two generations of affirmative action, forced school busing, and other failed but expensive efforts to bring blacks up to white standards they have to invent present injustices.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        They don’t even need new ones, they’ll just keep whining about the old injustices again and again. Think about how often we hear complaints about “the legacy of slavery.”

        They’ll never stop bringing it up.

        • TruthBeTold

          There are two novels purported to be written by slaves (who weren’t allowed to learn how to read and write). One is called ‘The Bondwoman’s Narrative’ and the other, ‘Our Nig’.

          I’m waiting for them to become movies.

          I suspect people are working on them but some aspects of these stories (such as slaves knowing how to read and write) don’t fit the narrative as neatly as some people would like.

        • Dave West

          They will stop bringing it up once whites are a small minority, Asians hate constant complaining and I just can’t see Jose and the boys caring about the fact that the gringos kept blacks as slaves a few centuries ago.

          • ElComadreja

            They’ll transfer it to Jose and the boys. The Spanish used slave labor extensively and mestizos carry white blood.

          • hastings88

            Not necessarily, Dave. Parasites always find their specific host. Blacks will still latch onto whites, even when whites are a minority. They will just stay away from Hispanics and Asians, except to rob and murder them occasionally, when opportunity presents. But whites could still be conditioned to feel guilty about blacks and still carry them.

    • Check to see if her son is unable to play with yours in the future. If he can’t then you know she doesn’t want him around your “corrupting influences”.

      • ncpride

        I would hate for that to be the case because our boys have been best friends for years, but I won’t be the hypocrite I so loathe in others. She and I get along really well, but we always steer clear of politics because we couldn’t be more opposite in that regard.

    • MBlanc46

      It’s so easy to just mumble something anodyne to keep from upsetting people. It’s really past time that white people become upset.

    • Dave West

      It’s a really boring movie too, at least Django was somewhat entertaining!

  • Dave West

    If anyone is even considering watching 12 Years a Slave don’t waste your time, I could only watch about the first half; after a certain point the movie became very boring.

    It was just as I expected, every black person was made out to be some virtuous saint. The main black man, whatever his name was, is portrayed as the most innovative man that has ever lived, who is constantly put down by ignorant, irrational racist whites. Most of the whites in the movie are shown to be unusually cruel, stupid, weak, un-athletic.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I knew it. Pure fiction.

    • Zimriel

      Which is amusing because a large reason he was a slave for a dozen years is because none of his fellow slaves would help him. They hated his guts. They saw through his shtick within weeks of meeting him: he was a con artist.

    • TruthBeTold

      ‘A novel is a lie masquerading as the truth’.

      I feel the same way about movies.

      I don’t watch movies or read novels anymore because all I see and read in them is their subliminal propaganda.

      One of the most blatant propagandist is Stephen King. I’ve only read some of his short stories but I have seen a few of his films. I have no idea where he comes up with the white villains. These maniacal caricatures don’t exist in the real world yet his films adapted from books are filled with malevolent white people who act in the most selfish and destructive ways.

      And blacks are the saintly victims.

      • expitch

        Great novels tell the truth while masquerading as lies.

  • Truthseeker

    Any guilt I ever had about Black people was used up a long time ago. After years of bending over backward not to be a “racist” only to be told what horrible, vicious bigots we were, it became obvious to me that it was all an exploitative game that would never end. These guilt-mongers have no desire to foster racial harmony, they do nothing but create resentment on all sides. We either need to drop the historical grievances or we need to separate. It’s really that simple.

    • ElComadreja

      I grew up around them. I never had any illusions about their feral nature.

  • Win-win for our side.

    Hollywood is an indoctrination factory, in league with the government and the universities, trying to produce a generation of dumbed down egalitarians. I’m happy that the Mandela film failed at the box office. Plus, we now have on record from the screenwriter that the thing was propaganda. Win-win. I’m lovin’ it.

  • Mary

    As a descendant of White American slaveholders, I don’t feel one iota of personal guilt for what happened. I absolutely believe that Africans never should have been imported and kept as slaves, for a variety of reasons. Americans have paid and will continue to pay into perpetuity for this short-sighted mistake. But any mistake of any nature that our ancestors have made, should never result in guilt on our part. I can’t believe so many White Americans, many of whom who have no ancestral connection to American slavery, can be manipulated into feeling guilt.

  • r j p

    We showed it to test audiences very extensively and it got astounding responses.
    .
    I have done some consumer product panels and research studies and most of the people that do them (homosexuals are disproportionately represented) will say what ever they think the market research company wants to hear or just dismiss concepts based on personal beliefs (i.e. prejudices).
    .
    Conservative Whites should sign up to participate in such studies.That Cheerios commercial would have never aired if there was greater participation from our side.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Many of these ‘test’ audiences are given the gift of money, movie passes or a voucher for a meal at a local restaurant. I know that having been in test audiences in Los Angeles.

    • M.Magog

      “I have done some consumer product panels and research studies and most of the people that do them (homosexuals are disproportionately represented) will say what ever they think the market research company wants to hear “………….

      how do they always find the submissive homosexuals?

      • r j p

        I do not know,but you are right about them being the “submissive homosexuals”, aka the limp wristed fa**ots no one ever wants to be around. I didn’t want to mention that — just to (try to) remain more impartial.

        Maybe they can’t keep jobs? They hate women, they hate male men.

  • MindHead99

    I don’t feel any guilt for Blacks and it is all the leftist ideology such as White privilege, social justice, rape culture etc.. that has brought me to Amren. I consider myself a moderate but have been so repulsed by the left that I bought JT’s book “White Identity” and it has really opened my eyes to the case for being more Paleo-Conservative. My thoughts on immigration have definitely changed. I have nothing against black historical movies as long as they try to be accurate. Very often they are not.

    • tlk244182

      Samuel Francis and Carlton Putnam are also easy to read and pack a punch. My entire world view has undergone a major overhaul in the months since the last Presidential election, and AMREN has been a major part of that. I also enjoyed John Derbyshire’s The Talk; NonBlack Version. I read and re-read these things for enjoyment but also to scrub away the accumulated crust of my many years as a liberal, and then as a “conservative” who was always trying to prove he wasn’t a racist.

  • Katherine McChesney

    “…please, take it away, we’ve heard enough about Mandela.”

    Exactly my sentiment.

  • The Final Solution

    He can still make a movie about Obama if he lives long enough. On another note, I was extremely pleased that Maleficent didn’t even have a single non-white character save for some extra who was smacked in the face by Sharlto Copley. Surprised the critics haven’t blasted its whiteness like they did with the X-Men movie.

    • bilderbuster

      Nicholson can make at least two Obama movies already and get a third one in the works too.
      Obama had two “autobiographies that he claims he wrote before he was 50 years old so maybe they can collaborate on his third and forth ones.
      It’s too bad the title “The Never Ending Story” has already been taken.

      • The Final Solution

        Black excuses and victimhood – the Never Ending Story.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    Mandela was apparently dull as dishwater:
    He discussed the process of writing the biopic, disclosing that he had invented most of Mandela’s speeches in the film because the real thing was too dull.

    “All but one of the speeches were made up by me because his own speeches are so boring. I know it sounds outrageous to say a thing like that, but when he came out of prison he made a speech and, God, you fell asleep.

    • M.

      I loved that part.

  • dd121

    So the narrative is a fiction anyway. Why not just add another chapter? I’m sure you can find something else to hate us for.

  • WR_the_realist

    We can only hope that all the white guilt over black people has been sucked up once and for all.

  • JohnEngelman

    It is hard even for white liberals to feel white guilt any more. When white liberals with sense consider the Negro race they feel what I feel: disappointment, and personal betrayal. I feel that blacks have justified the arguments of the segregationists I argued with as a child and teenager.

    • M.Magog

      You only argued for the negro because you were under mind control The negro did not betray you, you were had by the liberal jews that cooked up this whole thing.I laugh at you almost as hard as I laugh at this self pitying screenwriter.

      • JohnEngelman

        Those of us who disagree with you are not “under mind control.” We have had different experiences. We have read different material. In addition, we like different things.

        In a country like the United States “brainwashing” does not exist. It is the way marginal people rationalize their marginalization.

        Most Americans disagree with you, M.Magog. As time goes on you are becoming even more of an outlier.

        • M.Magog

          right, those under mind control will deny it, even up to the point where their controllers are snuffing the life out of them. You like to think you are superior, but you are not, your are a useful…….

    • M.Magog

      WEll, you saw “ROOTS” and that shaped your view of the world. Be angry at those who fed you the garbage.

      • JohnEngelman

        Alex Haley never pointed it out in Roots, but Kunta Kinte’s tribe was heavily involved in the slave trade.

        • M.Magog

          keep stirring your pancake mix

          • JohnEngelman

            Is that the best you can do?

            Yes, I am afraid it is.

        • ShermanTMcCoy

          Assuming there ever was a Kunta Kinte.

          • Dave West

            You mean Toby !!!

        • Katherine McChesney

          Kunte Kinte never existed. The story was a lie.

    • Dave West

      One can only be disappointed by negroes if they’re never around them. I’ve lived my entire life in Mississippi and Florida, I’ve never been disappointed of blacks, living around these people you basically just get used to subpar outcomes. I’m glad you saw the light though!

      • silviosilver

        I think Engelman is still a ‘lover at heart because for him the sense of disappointment and ‘betrayal’ is ongoing. In contrast, I was disappointed only for a brief moment after I realized that the presence of blacks is invariably a negative and that nothing I or anyone could do would change that. My attention very quickly turned from that ‘disappointment’ to considering how I could most effectively get blacks out of my life.

      • JohnEngelman

        The civil rights legislation was forced on white whites with extensive experience with blacks by whites with little experience.

        It must be said however that segregationists did a bad job of getting their message out. It was difficult to convince whites with little experience with blacks that blacks were inherently violent and criminal when the public image of civil rights demonstrations was of peaceful demonstrators being jeered at, beaten, and sometimes killed by mobs of segregationists.

        Those events did happen. The camera did not lie.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    Funny, I didn’t need a movie to relieve me of any guilt about black people. Personal experiences and observation achieved that a long time ago.

    12 years a slave lasted about 4 days in the art theaters of Los Angeles. I think that most of the residents of Los Angeles who have no interest at all in black history.

    • TruthBeTold

      It seems many blacks are ignorant of and have little interest in black history:

      • Zimriel

        Interesting that *Kobe* knew.

        Equally interesting that he threw his teammates under the bus like that.

        • Dave West

          Kobe actually might be one of the more intelligent blacks in the NBA.

          • Zimriel

            He’s not a kid anymore, and he got a hard lesson in life from that accusation against him. It may well have inspired him to sit back and take stock of things.

            Is he trying to nudge his teammates into doing the same? Pretty drastic move to do this in public –

          • Dave West

            “Public” might be a little bit of an overstatement, the article probably got ran in some small time news publication. If the libs at major publications heard about these comments they would have never let it get out due to the fact it would have exposed how stupid Kobe thinks his fellow black teammates are.

      • Dave West

        All that does is reveal the fact that most black people don’t have the intelligence or interest to fully acknowledge the fact that they were slaves; you’re average black person doesn’t walk around all day thinking to themselves about how America “wronged” their people.

        Most blacks that I came into contact with have a very abstract view of history. They know they were slaves and that some white guy in a stupid looking hat freed them, the thinking doesn’t go much beyond that level.

        The only blacks that do this are the so called black “intellectuals,” I use quotes since intellectuals are said to have an IQ in the 140 to 155 range, outside the parameters of 99.9 % of the black population.

        • I seem to remember reading somewhere that although most blacks in the USA believe their ancestors were slaves (in the Atlantic slave trade), most of them and their ancestors arrived after that period and have no claim to have been “wronged”.

          Similarly, I heard that only a tiny fraction of white folks in the USA are from families with a history of owning slaves.

          But of course the media seems to push the idea that all black folks were ‘hindered’ by slavery and that all white folks have ties to it. That’s what all these films are about – a heavy dose of guilt tripping in order for us to hand over our countries without a fight.

          • Dr. Blooknok

            Only about 1.5% of the white population owned slaves. If every white person owned Black slaves then they would be more than 13% of the population . This garbage propaganda comes from the Marxist leftists who control the media and Hollywood, because the Marxists are “collectivists” they spew there collective false guilt.

            Of course the slave owners were very wealthy and had to house, clothe and feed the slave. On the other hand the white factory workers in the north lived under a more oppressive system.
            Ordinary white people in the south could not do this and did their own work to get by day to day.
            I often ask, do the Blacks have collective guilt as to how their Black war lords sold them into slavery?

            The so called ‘civil Rights” movement was created by the communist party, just look at how many Blacks embrace Marxism ( Mandela, Marty L King)

        • TruthBeTold

          That’s how I see it.

          Most blacks don’t have the IQ to grasp the subtlety and complexity of history. Their instigators feed them basic info that’s simple enough for them to understand; ‘You were slaves. The white man is an evil racist’. They know talking points but I don’t believe most can handle much more than that.

  • none of your business

    ” We were deluged with Mandela stuff and after a week we all thought, please, take it away, we’ve heard enough about Mandela.”

    Absolute prima facie evidence that “Liberal” film makers only make this crap because they think it will make money. NOT, because they believe in it. Or, they do it as an exercise in brainwashing. OOOh, there is only so much White guilt to share! Boo fing Hoo. And, you know what?, there is going to be even LESS as the years roll by: either because there will literally be NO Whites, or, the actual Whites who manage to not get miscegenated or genocided out of existence, will not give a damn. Actually, come to think of it, the rest of the world(non-White) won’t care either.

    ‘White Flight– The Long Walk To Freedom.’

      I know it’s a play on the film’s name, but replace ‘walk to’ with ‘quest for’ and that’s a catchy slogan.

    I can not even watch new movies because they are all full of Morgan Freemans. I am just tired of them.

      I too, suffer from “Negro-Fatigue,”.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I suffer from Negro-nausea.

          fatigue/nausea….both are putting it mildly….

    I love how all the stories involving a white woman who “lied” about being raped by a negro are all fictional novels written by liberals during the civil rights era. Liberals hate when people call women liars for saying that they were raped, except when it comes fictional characters in the Jim Crow South.

    You know what part of your body you can stick your leftist, guilt-tripping race card, don’t you Willy?

    What a wanker…

    Any white person that feels guilty about slavery or the “plight” of the negro is a certifiable moron with thought disorders and should be institutionalized, preferably with blacks who will rape them repeatedly and probably beat them to death eventually. Their last conscious thought would probably be “I deserve this because I’m white”. These people make me physically sick.

    I remember every damn one of them and it started even earlier than that. Check out apiece of crap called “No Way Out” from 1950 with Hollywood’s original “Magic Negro” Sidney Poitier.

      What about the garbage; to sir with love and the biggie, Guess who’s coming to Dinner.

      • ElComadreja

        For sure. I mention “No Way Out” because it predates them as the earliest example of a “virtuous negro vs despicable white” propaganda movie that I’ve personally seen. I’m sure there might be even earlier examples.

        • Dr. Blooknok

          Your correct Sidney Poitier is the poster negro for these propaganda films.

    Slavery flourishes in two places today – Africa and the Middle East.
    How do Blacks and Arabs sleep?

    And that’s not counting the lives of those ruined by those soldiers’ deaths, nor the mutilations/injuries that destroyed even more lives/marriages/families/hopes.

  • ElComadreja

    Nice find.

  • ElComadreja

    Hollywood’s really been churning out the hate whitey movies lately.

  • Katherine McChesney

    Interesting assessment. I saw many people who were probably gainfully employed at those screenings. Bet YOU wouldn’t turn down a $50 stipend and free lunch if you had the chance.

    And furthermore I’m not a slacker nor am I a degenerate.

    You are insulting.

  • thomasdosborneii

    Is this really real? It kind of sounds like an article in the “Onion”.

  • In my own case, there wasn’t any white guilt for “Twelve Years A Slave” to have sucked up, even if I had wanted to see it. As for a 26-part TV series about a Afritard terrorist, I suspect I would feel obliged to gnaw off my own leg and escape.
