If it wasn't for #BlackLivesMatter, I wouldn't have notice this stuff. I've normally avoided watching award shows.
I don't care for them.
But now I am going to start caring because it's starting to look a little more Whiter and less colorful.
And for that, it spawned the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.
Again, the Academy Awards is facing harsh scrutiny over nominating only White actors, directors and producers over the Black and Hispanic talent.
None of the 20 main spots were given to any actors of color. Especially the Black ones.
The Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is about to be boycotted.
Straight Outta Compton, Creed, Concussion, Beasts of No Nation and The Hateful Eight were snubbed.
Me and S. Baldwin see this as a disgrace of talent and deliberate attempts to undermine the great feats of Black, Hispanic and Asian actors and actresses.
If this is supposed to be LIBERAL HOLLYWOOD, wondering who's in charge of the nominating committee?
There are four acting categories with 20 slots each. Not one of those categories have a Black actor or director nominated for the award.
Will the #BlackLivesMatter activists try to convince Chris Rock bow out of hosting duties?
Will Chris Rock address the controversy?
