It is much anticipated each year, as the cream of Hollywood hope to be one of the few to be firstly recognised, and then awarded, but this year the 88th Annual Oscars has been dogged with bad publicity due to it’s lack of diversity!
#OscarsSoWhite has been trending on Twitter after this year’s nominations failed to recognise any Black Actors / Actresses or Filmmakers for any of its most sought after accolades. Jada Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith informed the world that they would not be attending the ceremony in March as a result of this snub, and many others have followed suit. Some including, reportedly 50 Cent have been particularly vocal about their disapproval of Chris Rock’s attendance, but what do you think?
