In yesterday’s “Don’t Count Chickens” post, I said that Nate Parker‘s The Birth of a Nation “might snag a Best Picture nomination, maybe, but it’ll be no duckwalk.” I was immediately chided by commenters who were certain I meant to say “cakewalk.” No, I didn’t. “Piece of cake”, fine, but what does “cakewalk” even mean? I’ve been using the term “duckwalk” since Al Pacino‘s Tony Montana used it in this scene from Scarface (’83). So that’ll be enough of that, thank you very much.
