Subscribe to UPROXX

In case you haven’t heard, the Oscar nominations are out, and while many of the nominees are no surprise, what has caused an uproar is the complete lack of non-white actors getting recognized for acting awards. Performances like the ensemble cast of Straight Outta Compton were shut out in favor of another possibly futile nod to Leonardo DiCaprio, and Hollywood is not happy.

Because of her husband’s snub for Concussion, Jada Pinkett-Smith even went so far as to call for a boycott of the Oscars.
