0

So us music heads have already experienced the Grammy’s and were able to witness all of the madness and controversy surrounding the nominees, Kanye West/Taylor Swift, and of course Kendrick Lamar.

It’s the actors and actress’ turn now. The 2016 Oscar Awards will air this Sunday, February 28th and the anticipation leading up to this awards ceremony has been crazy.

A few months ago when the nominees were announced, it sent much of the urban pop culture world into a frenzy simply due to the lack of color that existed in the nominations. This year has been a very big year for mutli-raced actors and actresses; however, for some strange reason, most of the nominees aren’t people of color.

Twitter began the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite and many actors such as Jada Pinkett, Viola Davis, and George Clooney have used their platforms to broadcast their disdain for the lack of color included in the nominees for this year’s awards.

Director Spike Lee has even gone as far as boycotting this year’s awards because of the missing factor of diversity.

Actors of all colors had a lot to say about the diversity issues within the industry and most we not pleased, black and white alike.

Either way, the show must go on… Here is a list of the nominees. Are there any you think are missing? If so, feel free to comment them below.
